This is seriously going to be a flyby kinda post today.  I felt rather than let things pile up and create a backlog for myself, I would drop it all here and prevent a shitload of procrastination and grumpiness in a week or two.  We’ll see how that works out.  Hopefully, I can answer a few questions I’ve noticed in the comments over the last week or so.

I’m sure everybody remembers the permit panic awhile back and major fund-raising effort that ensued.  I believe between all the different fundraisers they raised in excess of 20k.  Of course we know that more than half of that never went towards the permit due to the fact they kinda just left the county hanging and last check, they remain in arrears as far as monies owed.  However, the county, with a few firm nudges from locals, seem to be staying on top of the situation and this is their most recent correspondence with HiCaliber along with the new compliance schedule.  Of course, this may all be a moot point if Manson really does hop on her broom and infest a new dwelling right away.

Going by this post made by a volunteer in their private group, it would seem that for all intents and purposes, HiCaliber as we know it might finally be over.  It looks like things at the barn are starting to be packed up and readied to stash somewhere.  As of a few days ago, the poor pig is still there and I’m not entirely sure who `Thor’ is.  The website lists Thor as a `Clearwater’ TB with no picture.  That Thor is apparently adopted.  `Thor’ is also the name of one of JonASSthan’s horses that he adopted from HiCaliber a few years ago.  His original name was Whisper and he is on their website under that name.  Given the fact that JonASSthan appears to have swapped out his scissors for gloves and now slings hay for a living, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to think that he probably can’t afford his horses either.  That’s just speculation though since we know that Manson has does like her `projects’ that the village never really gets to meet.

Here is poor Braveheart  It appears he’s got some filling in his left hind and we can guess that maybe he’s one of those horses that need some attention from the farrier.  It doesn’t look like anybody has bothered to groom the poor horse in forever.  Remember when Manson scooped him up for $1 despite the fact there was lots of interest in him?  She claimed she only took him to help place him and was going to donate the money she made back to the rescue.  How’s that working out for you, Manson?  It sure as hell, didn’t work out too well for Braveheart.

These are some of Manson’s horses.  The fence is still broken and the one feeder is not looking all that healthy either.  I know that we’ve had pictures going back weeks showing the same broken fence and it seems nobody can be arsed to even jury-rig it together.  I guess everybody left is too busy putting the oxygen on themselves first or something.

Some more pics of some random inmates that remain at the ranch.  I cannot figure out why poor Shasta is still there or Legacy either.  Again, lots of filth and lack of grooming is evident.  Business as usual at the feed lot.

As promised, here is a copy of the court papers Mags served on WordPress.  The email from them is basically an automated one and I’ve since had more personal communications with them where the Anti-SLAPP law was discussed.  Maggot should really look that up, but even so, what she is asking for still won’t tell her who I am.  It might tell her various airports I’ve been in, maybe even a coffee shop or two, but it won’t get her any closer to who I am.  Proxy server, Mags.  Look it up.

I think this might be a more appropriate form for Mags to file. She certainly seems bothered for somebody that continually claims not to read my blog or care what I say.  in fact, Maggot claims that nobody reads here so there is that too.  Personally, I don’t need or want an apology from her when this all shakes out.  I have other plans.

Here we have a bit of a throwback screenshot.  This was Mags talking to Maria Borell on social media.  Mags, the `professional journalist’ talking to the subject of her award-winning article.  Funny how she talks about multiple judgements considering her own financial situation *cough*bankrupt*cough*.  Don’t get me wrong, I think Maria is pond scum for what happened with her horses, but the fact that Mags can work up outrage over 43 horses and then turn a blind eye and defend the countless incidents of abuse, neglect and needless killing at HiCaliber is jaw dropping.  Don’t get me started on the bully stuff.

Here we have Mags still on the Dina Hate Train and this time she’s commiserating with none other than Randi Collier, who also happens to be a kill pen dipper.  Poor Mags isn’t up to speed enough on the slaughter pipeline or rescue to realize what’s wrong with kill pen dipping.  How do I know this?  Because her BFF dips kill pens too and according to Mags, she even went along on a trip to Kaufman last year.  I find it funny that Mags thinks anybody who donated to Dina has a right to know what happened to the horses, but nobody that donates to HiCaliber has that same right.  Again with the bullying.  How come everybody that disagrees with Maggot is a bully, but she can literally go off on people and that’s all in the name of whatever it is she calls it that sees her parked on Facebook every waking hour.

I know many of you are upset about the last-ditch grifting that is going on.  It’s kinda funny that they have two outstanding bills that are exactly $1500, no?  It’s almost like that’s a first and last month’s rent.  Having said that, grown assed people can give their money to whomever they want.  As frustrating as it is to watch, let it go.  It’s noted, documented and sent on to where it needs to be.  While I’m not holding my breath for her to actually vacate that property willingly, it does seem like we’re looking at the end of HiCaliber.  That being said, there are miles to go before we sleep.  Until next time…

We are not amused.  To be clear, by `we’ I am referring to the royal `we’ although I fully expect that to fly right over most heads.  I especially expect it to fly over those of the village idiots, and much ado will be made of nothing as is the usual reaction from them.   Anyhow, back to me and my disgust… I was off resting on my laurels figuring the bulk of what I set out to do with HiCaliber was either accomplished or in the works.   It’s been kinda nice reclaiming my personal time and not having to have The Manson Family in my thoughts most of my waking hours.  Sadly, it seems that HiCaliber will not go quietly into the night and the death throes drag on.  That also means that horses are still getting shot for no good reason, lies are being told and, once again, I feel compelled to lay down an update.  So, for old times sake and posterity, let’s pull up a chair, pop the cork, twist the cap or whatever and deal with the never ending shit show that is HiCaliber.   This is going to hop around a bit today mostly because I can’t be arsed to make things linear and I do what I want.  Buckle up!

manurepile.jpg

It seems that Manson has been making an effort to clean up the mountains of manure from the ranch property in recent weeks.  The timing is weird, but better late than never. Sadly, this entails loading the manure up and trailering it over to a neighboring property.  All this was witnessed by somebody that was visiting the ranch.  According to this source they gained access to this property off Calle Oro and through T-posts and rolled up fencing.  The property in question has goats and chickens within view of the road.  HiCaliber wasn’t being overly secretive or stealth about doing this so perhaps the neighbor is ok with having their diseased waste trucked over to his place.  It’s probably better than how they used to just shove it over onto public land.  I wonder if the county knows?

copperhart.jpg

That’s right, for the minor sum of only $40 you too can learn breeds, colors and markings from the very same person that thinks horses have back knees and has no clue about how to eyeball a height on an animal.  If you’re super lucky, Manson may make a cameo appearance and show us how to find a dorsal stripe by looking underneath a horse or how a foal that does not have black points may shed buckskin.
  

Not content to spread misinformation on that which can be easily googled, Amanduh continues to teach unsuspecting people to ride as poorly as she does.  Apparently proper footwear is optional as is adjusting stirrups to the appropriate lengths.  I also learned that riding a dead lame horse was also fine because it’s what he loves it and he is depressed otherwise. I’m sure that standing in a small stall 24/7 while getting eaten alive by flies and choking for water has nothing to do with his depression though​.  Don’t get me started on the whole `gait regulation’ and how you use your seat by not having it in the saddle.  I’m sure glad Amanduh is on the job to tell us what `real’ horsemen do.

I’m sure that anybody that has been following this on any level knows about the Valley Center Western Days Parade clusterfuck that has gone down over the last week.  It has caused beans to be flicked on both sides of the fence as nearly everybody has gotten their drama boots on and waded right in.  Minor children were bullied and ridiculed, lies were told and all around fuckery ensued. I’m not even going to bother rehashing it all.  I think it’s important to put the actual facts out though.  The reason why horse people are concerned with HiCaliber being in the parade was the risk to their own horses.  Manson may think Strangles is `no big deal’ but most horse people know better.
Here are some screen shots and emails clearly showing there has been an ongoing Strangles issue at HiCaliber for well over a year.  It also clearly shows that Manson was not only aware of it but so is her adoption team as they were addressing it in recent contracts.  Remember that the initial order from the Western Days committee was that no horse exposed to Strangles within the last 12 months would be allowed to be in the parade.  Sadly, knowing the Manson Family, they would have likely worked around that claiming the horses they were riding weren’t exposed and that’s where a lot of the concern was for many people.  I know that Manson claims they have `major’ biosecurity measures in place.  How does she really even know considering she rarely waltzes her happy ass to the more remote areas of the ranch?

This screenshot was from one of their private groups and was posted about a week ago.  One of their regular volunteers described her day at HiCaliber.  What I want people to notice is the order of paddocks she visits, clearly admitting to `petting and scratching’ horses as she went around the property.  AFTER visiting the QT/Vineyard area, she went to the nursery letting them smell her and petting them, on to North herd where she stopped to pet more and then to South herd and Rivers Run.  THIS is just an example of why people do not trust the biosecurity at HiCaliber or want their own horses exposed to HiCaliber horses and it’s valid.  What I find saddest of all is that this small community has had to deal with all this drama and complete fuckery when they are just trying to hold a family event.
It’s a real shame things even had to go his far as it is a complete dick move to knowingly spread Strangles or any other disease around.    I actually don’t even get what the big fuss about being in the parade is for HiCaliber.  Judging by pics of the recent parade they were in and other past performances, it’s not a great advertisment for them or their horses.  You have Manson riding horses that are far too small for her, none of them are groomed and even the riders look raggedy.  Their time would be far better spent at home grooming and feeding their animals and if they must go in the parade, then walk the route holding a sign or drive the golf carts or something.  Just give these poor horses a break because they all look horrible and nobody needs to see Manson doing a 2 point starfish while spilling out of her saddle and sexually harassing anything and everything that crosses her path.  For crying out loud it doesn’t even look like they bothered to clean their tack or dust off their boots.  I suppose we’re going to have to replay this all again as Manson is planning on riding in the July 14th San Diego Pride Parade despite the fact she has said she plans to close down by June 30th.  I’m sure Manson’s criminal defense attorney, Mr. Fancy Socks, will fight for their right to party though.

 One of the features of Parade-gate was good ole Mags charging into the middle of things and basically losing her shit.  Actually, not basically, completely losing her shit and as of this writing, the meltdown continues.   Because the default setting of Mags and the village idiots is to cry `bully’ and point fingers without realizing that every time they do so, three fingers are pointing right back at them, they decided to bully a 14 year old girl that has NOTHING to do with any of the HiCaliber drama beyond a genuine concern about riding her own horse in the parade.  When her concerned father stood up for her and brought it right to the source, all hell broke loose and Mags called him a `shitty parent’ for doing so.  Given her partner’s past criminal charges to do with his own child, I guess Mags isn’t in a position to judge anybody on their parenting skills.  It was also at this point that Mags appears to have lost her tenuous grip on her sanity as she heaved herself up on the cross and played the victim card for all it was worth claiming to be the victim of bullying.
magrant
Where do I even start?  Margaret, you need to get your money back.  Seriously and on all that I hold dear, you are barking up the wrong tree.  In fact, the tree your barking up isn’t even in the right time zone.  YOU are the bully.  You have been told over and over again, you are wrong and you continue to lie about having proof.  By all means go to court.  I won’t be there, but the people you are targeting as me have a very strong case against you.  You have torn people to shreds thinking they are me, you have attempted to discredit me and maligned everything I write.  Tit for tat, Mags.  Not my fault you self identified when I originally posted a blind item about you. I think a year long temper tantrum is a bit excessive and had you actually hired a PI to find out who I was, that’s boil a bunny level creepy.  Your back pedal game is super strong though…BTW the AG investigation, along with the multiple other agencies, is ongoing and Manson has been cleared of nothing.

This one made me laugh.  Little hint for Mags though, even wordpress doesn’t have my actual identity.  By all means though, go on with your bad self and the court orders and PIs.  LOL.
maggot1
From what I can gather, Mags is not well versed on animal advocacy.  She seems to have zero clue who the players are and what people’s credentials actually are.  Funny how it’s not bullying when Margaret spreads untruths and mocks people’s misfortunes though.  I could tear Mags’s personal advocacy claims to absolute shreds but a) what would be the point? and b) I have too much respect for the sources of my intel.  It doesn’t matter anyhow as there is no law that says Mags has to respect TC and there is certainly no law that says anybody has to respect Mags or believe anything she says.
margbully
 I’m not sure if all this is in order, but Mags made a dramatic post.  I can only imagine it was actually put up to inspire people to talk her out of leaving because she hardly even took a break from posting.  It was telling that it was mostly village idiots that told her not to go and the racing community remained silent.  It was also kinda weird how she went full bully after making this post and really didn’t appreciate having the mirror held up to her own face.
You know what I find funny?  I haven’t posted for weeks and she’s still obsessed with me.  I think the regular readers here can attest that even my comments have been sporadic and mostly late at night.  For sure D can attest that I haven’t been around all that much lately.  I also am highly amused given the fact that Mags has posted in private groups about how little my opinion matters and if you want to see screen shots of that along with Mags admitting she really doesn’t know who writes this blog, you can refresh your memory in Writing On The Wall…With Crayons!
Mags didn’t appreciate having her own hypocrisy pointed out to her it seems.  It also seems that even what remains of her own friends have tried to point out to her that she’s off on a tangent.  If anything, Mags picked up steam after this exchange even though she deleted Abby’s comments.
Here we have anti-bullying warrior Mags bullying people.  I’m not sure if she is daring Jennifer to blog about her or she’s daring me, but since I’m the one with a blog and I do love a good dare… I’m not entirely sure what the $100 letter is or why we’re talking bankruptcy but given the fact that Mags’s legal counsel has so far been Angrid, who is not even a member of the California bar, she’s probably not in a position to throw darts here. I’m also not sure how somebody that has to run gofundme campaigns to pay her vet bills and so her partner can buy a used van can afford to hire PIs.  Like I said, she needs to get her money back.  I have a shitload more screen shots I could post showing Mags bullying people, calling names and lying, but what’s the point?  If they haven’t learned by now, I do what I want, I post what I want and if they continue to poke me in the chest, they will continue to get negative attention.  Let’s move on.
 
This is a video where Manson tells another pack of lies.  The person she is talking about is Salvador Paniagua.  This would be the same guy who she used to refer to as `the worst of the worst’ and has claimed there is a language barrier with.  He is a known tripper and the incident with FHR she is referring to is well documented.  He showed up at Mike’s auction with 7 completely mangled horses that had been tripped and demanded $250 each for.  Rather than pay his ransom, FHR called in AC and they suggested that he take $100 each.  It should be noted that none of these horses were in acceptable enough condition to actually be run through auction.  Once the horses started being transferred off Salvador’s trailer and it became apparent how bad of shape they were in, FHR offered $600 for all 7 horses just to get them safe and it was accepted.  All but two horses were too badly injured to save and after being seen by a real vet, they were humanely euthanized. That is the truth of the situation rather than Manson’s version of events.  It’s also what a true rescue and advocate would have done.  Manson bought a load of tripped horses off Salvador just this past January and rather than call AC, she arranged to meet him and pay his ransom.  She also shot the horses herself rather than letting them see a vet.  I should probably mention that Manson and her village idiots mocked FHR and made an issue about them having to put down the 5 horses from Salvador.

Owens Intake February/18

Owens is one of the pasture puffs awaiting adoption at HiCaliber.  As is obvious from the pictures above, he’s losing condition despite Amanduh’s claims he has put on lots of weight.  I’m not seeing it.

ficemeth1

Before I get onto the last few things, I thought a little comic relief from Ficehole would be appropriate.  Now, I’m certainly no computer whiz, but I have noticed that when I google something or look at certain web pages, the ads Facebook shows me usually have something to do with that.  I’m guessing it’s something to do with cookies or something.  I can also say that Facebook has never shown me drug paraphenalia ads or anything remotely close and that’s probably because I a) don’t do drugs and b) don’t google drugs.  The fact that Fice has meth pipes coming up on his feed is both funny and telling.  The fact that he’s indignant about it is hilarious.

Nathalie is one of the newer Manson Family members and ranch residents.  Manson has mentioned several times that she is from Norway or The Netherlands or some place like that and that she is visiting.  Since moving in with Manson it seems she is doing a bit more than visiting and actually acting as a front for flipping Manson’s personal project horses.  Buddy the Peruvian Paso is actually the horse Manson bought for herself and promptly named Foreskin.  Buddy also seems to have severely dropped pasterns and I’m not sure how any of the HiCaliber gunsels know what `gaiting beautifully’ is when they usually diagnose them as neuro and shoot them in the face when they are gaited.  I also recall some other Peruvians who were shot in the head for having dropped pasterns within days of their arrival at HiCaliber.  I guess they didn’t figure they could squeeze the last few pennies out of those horses.  I’m sure having a rider much top large on him, isn’t helping Buddy with his pastern issues either.  It seems Nathalie is also `adopting’ HiCaliber horses and is the new owner of Ryland.  I wonder if wheeling, dealing, grifting and working under the table is something her visitor visa allows?  Maybe Miss Homeland Security aka Angrid would know.

 

Remember the $25 `mare’ at auction and the legendary rant that Wrinkles went on?  The same horse that turned out to be a gelding and had actually been purchased by an advocate?  His name is Don Q and the above pics are of him in his new home.  They were taken within the last week or so.  Don Q is the one with the one white sock.  His buddies are Hickory, who is also blind and came from a hoarding situation in another state, and Sarge who is toothless and ancient and came from FHR.  All three horses are living the good life and are very loved.  I’m also told that Don Q no longer has shoes on so Wrinkles can stop worrying about that as well.  Too bad Manson won’t allow horses to be adopted by `haters’ because this advocate has a fondness for puffs.  I hear she likes them even more than she likes blue water bottles.

Manson has put out a few posts saying they are nearly out of hay or they can’t pay for a load that just came.  I guess she spent all her money on sending her criminal defesne attorney to meetings to fight for her `constitutional right’ to spread Strangles ride in a parade.  While she claims to have adopted out several horses in the past few weeks, her feed bill seems to be about the same.  None of the village idiots bother to question that just like they don’t realize that while she is dumping horses right, left and center, she is bringing news ones back to the ranch at nearly the same rate.  The only difference is that she’s not telling her village about them or bothering to give them names which makes it all the easier for them to vanish off the face of the earth.  Not exactly the actions of somebody that is closing their doors, but more the action of somebody that is transitioning to become a full on flipper.  I know I sound like a broken record, but Manson is not going to exit quietly or quickly.  Hell, we’ve already passed the window for this to be quick at least a month ago.  I guess there is always that one guest that doesn’t know when it’s time to leave the party, right?

cslewis

When I resurrected this blog, I never thought I’d be here a year later still dealing with this shit.  I certainly never wanted to be anybody’s leader or even a point person. I just wanted to get some things off my chest and document what I saw as a trainwreck in the making.  I’ve been in this advocacy game for a while and if I know anything, I know it’s far better to head off a trainwreck than clean one up. It’s also nearly impossible to head them off for just the reasons we have seen played out this past week alone.  Even though I am in the horse industry and have been my whole life, I know it attracts crazy.  Add social media to that mix and you have a whole other level of nuts.  What I saw this past week was local horse people genuinely concerned for their own animals and trying to do something about it through proper channels.  I also saw several people on both sides of the fence insert themselves into the situation for the sake of drama.  It was gross.  It’s also not something I wish to participate in. I’m busy in my life and I have zero time for social media flame wars.  That being said, I’m not going to drop this issue either.  As I have said all along, I will stay the course and see things through.  I don’t care who wants to grab credit or be a hero once the dust settles.  That was never my goal.  I just want to save some horses.  Maybe it’s time for some people to ask themselves what they are in this for.

Forgive me for not posting sooner.  Things were quiet so I took the weekend off and, sure as hell, everything broke loose.  Isn’t that always the way?  For whatever reason people keep asking me what I think about things so I guess I’ll address that.  I’ve got some other things to share as well and, as usual, have left this too long so it’s a big post and clip heavy too.  I expect there will be some outrage in some corners over this and I’m pretty sure I won’t care.  Let’s just say whether you’re into drama or averse there will be a little something for everybody in here. With that being said, it’s time to pull up a seat and put our tinfoil beanies on just on the off chance that fuckery is contagious.  It seems to have reached epidemic proportions within the village this past week or so.

As everybody is aware, this past weekend saw the dramatic announcement that HiCaliber is shutting down.  As with most things that has to do with Manson, nothing is ever quite what it seems though.  Because of this, I’m going to break this down into bite sized chunks because if you can pick through her self-serving and maudlin creative writing, the bullshit is quite thick.  She begins this post setting the stage for it being all about herself and how none of this is her fault.  Right away she lies by saying her pride will never outweigh her loyalty to the horses?  WHAT loyalty?  The loyalty that causes you to allow them to stand in their own filth in crowded conditions?  The loyalty that allows you to experiment on them like the equine version of Dr. Mengele? The loyalty that allows you to look them in the eye and shoot them in the face because of your own shortcomings?   REALLY?

byebye1

Going back even a few years ago there were red flags and several people voiced concerned that the HiCaliber nickel and dime, small stream income strategy was not sustainable.  Of course any time those concerns were addressed with them, the standard reply was `Eat a dick’.  It was a further concern when it became apparent that the rescue was supporting several able-bodied adults that simply refused to have jobs or even do much work around the rescue to earn their keep.  Originally the plan had been for the human residents to support the rescue through rent fees and chores; something that never quite came to fruition.  What ended up happening was that everybody got to live for free off the donor dollar with paid help to feed the all the horses for them including their own personal ones.  So, while Manson claims to be shutting down and pleads to help keep the horses fed, realize that includes her own personal horses along with the other personal horses on that property.

FFS Manson needs to get off the cross because I’m pretty sure somebody else needs the wood.  Seriously.  I’m so sick of these bitches playing the `kid’ card.  Manson is very worried about her kids losing people they love but that didn’t seem to be a big concern of hers in her custody hearing and I won’t even go there with the daughter.  She wasn’t really concerned about the example it set for her kids to have them on the Shane Dawson show and bad mouth the son’s father.  Now she want us to believe that she was just joining in on the game others were playing?  Bitch, please…Keep your prayers for yourself because you need them most of all.

byebye3

Now we reach the deeply delusional part of this post.  Does anybody believe for a single second that there has been a credible threat against Manson?  Wishing bad things happen to somebody isn’t the same as making a threat.  I think what’s important to remember here is that in her own mind, Manson is a celebrity so she’s built this whole dramatic scenario up in her head for village idiot consumption. Danger! Drama!  Threats!  Friday cliff hangers for their interactive soap opera!  I can only speak for myself but not only have I not paid anybody for information, I’ve never even solicited it so the whole `sold their story’ thing is as laughable as her eyebrows.  The `sweet couple’ Manson describes wouldn’t have even known who she was if she hadn’t told them and then spent the majority of the flight discussing her `fame’ when she wasn’t discussing vaginas.  The only reason they knew about this blog is because Manson showed it to them and it must have resonated with them or I wouldn’t have gotten the deets about their awkward encounter with La Manson.

I actually feel sorry for Manson if this is her life’s work and she thinks it’s something to be proud of and hang her reputation on.  Not many people aspire to be remembered as a horse hoarding, abusing, gunsel that gets off on shooting viable animals.  I’m guessing that’s the reputation she’s referring to because the only other rep she had was as a liar and a swindler.  If she doesn’t recognize herself perhaps she needs to lay off the back alley cosmetic procedures.  If she has trouble recognizing somebody who lives to hurt others I suggest she looks in the mirror and remembers every employer she called, every confidence she broke when somebody tried to leave her and that’s not counting all the animals she betrayed.

byebye5

The pity party rages on…The ASPCA and HSUS endorse good animal husbandry.  Period.  Speaking out and telling the truth is not a smear campaign.  It is worth mentioning that all the issues with the unnecessary euthanasias, the practicing veterinary medicine without a license, the substandard conditions and hoarding were all initially addressed with HiCaliber.  Insiders, former board members, and advocates all, at one time or another, attempted to address this with Manson directly and at any point, she could have turned this around.  Rather than accepting advice from those with more experience, Manson went harder the other direction because she is nobody’s bitch and the animals paid the price.  Damn straight people comment when they find her trying to accumulate more animals to drag back to the ranch to suffer horrible deaths. It’s not hate because people recognize that things were getting so far out of control we were looking at a situation that was going to be far more horrific than Fallen or Starlight ever thought of being.  Believe it or not, there are many of us that have been at this far longer than Manson and we can see a train wreck coming miles away.   Does anybody think Fallen and these other places started off like they ended up?

byebye6

If Manson wasn’t broke as a joke, I think I’d sue her for a new laptop because I spewed water all over my screen when I read about the whole raising the bar thing.  I’m wondering if she even believes the craps she writes.  I can’t figure out what bar she has raised?  For euthanasia percentages?  For sure.  For standard of care?  Not in a million years.  Manson indicates `all’ investigations have proven that they aren’t doing anything wrong?  Why is it that their original PayPal accounts are still frozen?  Why is it that they are no longer allowed to film in the chutes at Ontario?  Who brings a criminal defense attorney to auction?  What about those audits?  No, they are cleared of nothing, they just haven’t been formally charged yet.  As far as the rules of rescue, the only hard and fast one is that you are a good steward of the animals you take in and yes, if you can’t abide by that you need to go.  Manson needs to go.  The only horses she will be welcome to devote her life to is Breyers because she will never be welcome in the horse community.

bye

Here we get to the grift.  After all this creative prose designed to draw in the reader, Manson admits she is going to keep their non-profit status.  If you haven’t noticed her setting herself up for the next phase of her career you might be blind.  The constant talk about compassion pulls.  The propaganda video she had the San Diego UT produce for her (euth video ), the protecting of known trippers and abusers all point towards the new direction for the 501c3.  It’s also blatantly obvious that Manson gets off on killing horses so what better career for her than to make a living doing just that? You know the old adage about doing what you love and figuring out how to get paid for it…

bye1

Manson’s track record for paying off her debts isn’t great hence the foreclosure, bankruptcy, unpaid vet bills, stud fees etc.  If I was one of their vendors, I’d be worried. However, like the good grifter she is Manson shifts the responsibility of keeping the hoard and personal horses fed onto the very tapped out village idiots and drops the none too subtle hint that one of them step up and buy the property.  Naturally the community of grifters would like to stay together and continue to not work for a living.  It wouldn’t be accurate to call it a commune because that would imply that they all pitch in and work for the good of the community.  Maybe coven is a more accurate term for what they are proposing as I’m sure organs and body parts of sacrificed animals will be involved.

Now we reach the Academy Award portion of this post where Manson thanks all those that enabled this shit show for so long including `the best team she’s every had’.

bye3.PNG

What strikes me about Manson’s BFFs and support system is none of them seem to have been in her life more than 5 years.  That speaks volumes to me as pretty much everybody I know has some `lifers’ in the friend department.  I think that speaks volumes about what passes for loyalty in Manson’s world.  Then you have her thanking the body pick up man which should probably be the other way around considering how much business they give him.  They’ve probably put his kids through college.

villa

Taking a page out of the manipulators handbook, Manson serves up a classic shit sandwich to her village.  Soften them up with flattery and faux vulnerability, ask for money and then praise again.  She really is a specimen.

Presuming I’m a `mean girl’ I can guarantee there is a less than zero percent chance I will ever find myself in Manson’s Yankee doodle dandy shit kickers or anything else she wears on her hooves.  I’m also reasonably certain I don’t need somebody like her lecturing me on empathy and compassion or relationships.  Her `bad backyard program’ caused more suffering  and mutilation of horses than almost anything else she did as she protected and covered for the very people who abused and broke down those horses.  The very horses she shot in the face without even a kind hand as they were nothing more than income for her.  I hope children are watching so they learn how to stand up to a bully and that what is good and right will ALWAYS win out.  I will say the one thing Manson did do is unify the real rescue community and they will be stronger as a result.  The horses of Southern California are in very good hands once they no longer face the risk of being exploited at the HiCaliber feed lot.

bye5

There has never been a need to send Manson screen shots of everything.  She reads all the hater sites, all the time.  Constantly.  I hope she means it about adopting out the horses but I remain skeptical.  I’m also not sure what constitutes a `more affordable’ option for a bunch of people who have no jobs.  Now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s wrap up some things we talked about in the last post.

One of the first rules of Mole Club is always have more than one mole.  In fact, have more than two if you can swing it because sometimes you have to make one into a sacrificial lamb to foster security.  Thank you to the people who emailed me out of concern for the outing of the mole.  Y’all are some great readers.  In an effort to plug the holes in his secret groups, Pasterfuck decided to make all the participants sign a Non Disclosure Agreement.  I suspect Angrid may have helped with this as she did with Marg’s epic blackmail letter we talked about last week.  I’d like to remind you that these are all grown adults in a Facebook group that have dedicated their time to bullying people into silence and now they want NDAs so nobody tells on the kind of plotting and shit talking they do when they think nobody can see.

Here we have the usual suspects shit talking Izabelle K once again.  You will recall the last post showed them talking smack about her due to her lack of filter.  This series of screen shots show them all getting pissed off  yet again that Izzy spilled the beans about a plan to transfer 20 horses out of state.  As far as I know Izzy is still a staunch supporter and completely oblivious what they say about her behind closed doors.

Oops, did I forget to mention that part of the initiation ritual to get into Pasterfuck’s super secret forum was to post their driver’s licenses?  Yeah, that was a thing and it was absolutely astonishing not only how many of them did it, but how many didn’t bother to blank out their DL numbers and addresses.  They just put it all out there and it was anything but secure.  Because I actually have some sympathy for true idiots, I removed their numbers and addresses because those are not important.  I think what is important is how many of them are from out of state and far enough away that it’s obvious they have never been near HiCaliber.  I also find it telling that even though PF and Mags asked them for their very personal information, they didn’t provide their own DLs nor did they protect the info they gathered.  Let this be a lesson to everybody.  There is no such thing as a truly secret group and if you put it on the internet you can expect it to become public eventually.  Don’t worry, I didn’t keep any of their addresses so they won’t be on my Christmas card list.

Speaking of secret groups and nothing ever really being private, it’s time to hop over to some HiCaliber bat caves.  A month or two ago, before she made a big show of deleting her Facebook, Angrid was witch hunting in their private forums and targeting some of the more vocal anti-Hicaliber people.  She also targeted Jennifer Marek as she always does.  It seems she thought my YouTube account was Jen’s.  It’s not but we’ve been round and round that issue before.  What is interesting is that videos from Jen’s personal account started showing up on these pages.  Funny how that happens.  You know what else is funny?  It’s super funny when somebody that likes to act like she’s smarter than everybody else outs herself as the proprietress  as one of the pages that aggressively targets anybody that dares speak out against HiCaliber.

Here we have Angrid in the secret HiCal admin group announcing that she is, in fact, Baby Horror.  To be honest, this wasn’t a big revelation to me.  I’ve known for quite some time, but these screen shots came to me recently and they are really amusing, including the one where Angrid shows the owner panel of Baby Horror and begs for likes.  Baby Horror was dormant for a while but was recently brought back to life right around the time Angrid deleted her personal Facebook account and said it was because of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.  The only problem with that excuse was that Angrid deleted her Facebook before that stuff came to light, so it appears that wasn’t really the reason.  As funny as it is to out people for their own hypocrisy and immaturity, the personal details that were posted on Baby Horror give me pause for concern given Angrid’s job and the information she potentially has access to.  I also find it somewhat telling how often Baby Horror is online during the regular work day.  I apologize in advance to whomever Angrid decides I am after this gets out because I’m sure you’re next up for the spotlight.  Let’s move on from all this fuckery, shall we?

permit

permit3

permit1

permit2

It’s really no surprise that the permit process is in limbo.  Manson even apologized to the village idiots for wasting their money and explained they weren’t moving forward with it now that they are closing.  The problem is that HiCaliber is in arrears over $1300 for what has already been done with that permit.  Between what HiCaliber raised and what Tracy Acres donated, and that’s not taking into account what they brought in via PayPal, they should have had more than enough money to cover those costs.  Obviously it was not all put in the trust account for the permit. In fact, they only put $7000 in the trust account so the exact amount owing is $1332.60.   HiCaliber’s youcaring is still open and getting the odd donation.  I find it amusing that they were threatening to close doors and kill horses for this con too.  What isn’t so amusing is that they likely won’t be allowed to just sit in limbo with the permit indefinitely.  Eventually the county will likely start laying fines.  I wonder if Manson feels the same about making sure they are paid before she closes or if she’ll try to hang the property owner with it?

machoandscotty

Speaking of unpaid bills, this post showed up on the HiCaliber page the other day.  Macho actually belongs to the owner of the property.  One of the conditions of their lease was that Macho and Curly remain on the property and be cared for by HiCaliber.  Curly was adopted out a few months ago and Macho was shifted off to foster along with a rather skinny Scotty.  Apparently, Manson isn’t returning the calls of some people she owes money to.

jesse

It has been noticed by a few people that Jesse has a chunk missing out of his ear.  Despite what she claims, he was likely not born with a wound like that.  Up until recently they have gone out of their way to crop pictures and not show his ear.  At one point Manson said he `scraped’ it, so the story changes depending on the audience.  I don’t know what happened to him but Amanduh’s dog has been seen on live feed chasing and trying to heel him.  I’ve brought a lot of foals into this world and never have I ever seen one born with a fresh wound and chunk out of their ear.

corky.PNG

Corky the pig isn’t exactly living his best life either.  He spends most of his time in the chicken coop and, up until recently, was trying to create his own mud from spilling his water.  He’s recently been given a pool, but is still allowed to eat chicken feed which can create problems in pigs.  The other night the HiCalibrites thought it would be funny to try to ride him, with a few of them taking turns.  Corky tried to get away and run back to his chicken coop to no avail.  Manson mentioned on the same live video he was only about 7 months old.

Rizzo intake April 2017

Rizzo was bought just a little over a year ago.  Being young and papered, Manson immediately helped herself to him for $1 and whisked him off to Bang Bang Becky’s to `grow up’.  Even though he was only 2 years old, Manson did test ride him last year.   Since Bang Bang Becky kicked Manson to the curb, Rizzo has been back at HiCaliber and clearly not thriving.  There is some controversy over his actual adoption status as he is listed as up for adoption on the website, but Manson has said in private forums that he is not really available.  It makes me wonder if she is trying to hide her personal horses that live on the donor dollar for some reason and listing them even though they are not really available to the public.

The other day Amanduh did live feed while riding poor Petty.  For whatever reason the HiCalibrites feel that a view of a horse’s ears is  a suitable adoption video.  I guess  now that they’re closing they aren’t bothering with trying to hide much either as Amanduh took us along for a lovely tour of the various shit mountains that are stacked around the poor horses in the training area.  I don’t suppose that moving them will ever happen now that they’re no loner pretending to give a shit about upkeep on that ranch.

paperwork

Back in 2016 one of the villagers hosted a fundraiser for HiCaliber called the Horseshoe Gala.  In the above video clip an almost unrecognizable Manson talks about being on track for a close to a million dollar year before inviting all the party goers to eat a dick.  One of the featured items in the auction was a donated tanning bed.  It was really strange that they only valued it at $300 when even a used tanning bed normally goes for $4000 minimum if you take a look online.  I guess I shouldn’t be all that surprised about the under value on it considering the very same tanning bed took up residence in Manson’s house where it remains today.

On a recent live feed, several gunshots were going off in the background as some of the village idiots were out on public land attempting to shoot coyotes again.  Of course, Manson thought it was hilarious and joked about shooting horses.  You know what they say about many a truth being spoken in jest…

Dedo experienced a death by Manson recently.  I’m not really sure what the official reason is for that as he wasn’t in any sort of quarantine situation that I’m aware of.  No emotional goodbyes for him either even though her young son rode him and liked him.  Dedo did not last even two months at HiCaliber.  RIP Dedo #sayhisname

julia

Julia was bought at auction back in December around the time of the Del Mar clusterfuck.  In her intake video, Amanduh stated that she had some soreness and `mild’ conjunctivitis.  If that was mild, I probably don’t want to know what they consider regular or severe.  Julia’s intake video was pretty much the last we ever heard of her as far as updates.  She was taken for a tarp nap recently without so much as a mention.  RIP Julia #sayhername

Peasley also joined the list of the dead recently.  Even though he was named after one of the nastier site admins, that did not save him from taking a bullet to the face.  Peasley was diagnosed with ring bone shortly after being bought by HiCaliber but they never made much effort to find him a puff home.  I’m not entirely sure he made it out of QT even.  In Manson’s world ringbone is punishable by death.  RIP Peasley #sayhisname

bayfilly.PNG

Many of us were rightfully outraged that Manson was parading horribly broken horses on the side of the road outside of the wedding she was attending.  The one mare was an older OTTB named All Things Equal and the other was a young bay filly that appeared to be the victim of tripping. Originally Manson said she was injured in a paddock accident but in the above video she guesses she was match raced.  She also seemed to specifically know she was only 2 1/2.  It was pretty evident that the younger filly, if not both, were not long for the world with one of Manson’s favorite remote kill locations just around the corner at good ole Buzz’s.  Despite them being cruel enough to haul this young mare in this condition it would seem she either got to hang out in the trailer until it was kill time or they killed her and partied after.  Either fate is pretty callous.  Manson even turned her death into being all about her in the above video and not once expressed any outrage for the people that did this to her.  Instead she likely paid them to clean this up.  The fate of the TB mare is not known but she is also presumed dead.  RIP Ladies  There is only one name to say as the younger filly didn’t have her name announced.

justice.PNG

At auction or Tuesday, one of the flippers brought this horse and never took him/her anywhere near the ring.  His trailer was parked next to Manson and at some point this horse was transferred to Manson’s where he got to stand in the heat until Manson was ready to leave auction.  From there Manson went to Buzz’s where she remained for several hours.  She had mentioned in one of her live feeds that day that she had been approached about this horse and it was likely a compassion pull.  It would seem that once again Buzz’s place was used to kill this horse as he/she never made it back to HiCaliber and Manson was boasting or seeking validation that she just shot him/her without asking for money.  I’m not even sure what her point was.  Nobody had an opportunity to step up for this horse.  He/she never went through the ring.  Nobody really knows why this horse needed to be killed or if this dark bay was the one that was killed.  Manson had a few in her trailer by the end of the day.  What this reminds me of is back in the day when people would take their old and broken horses to slaughter to squeeze the last few pennies out of them.  Manson is no better than a mobile slaughter-house it would seem.  RIP Sweet horse, I wish we could say your name.

squirrel2

ss

By now most people have heard that Squirrel is also dead despite several adoption offers for her over the past few months.  She was purchased from Misner last year shortly after he had bought her at Mike’s auction.  She was said to be very keyed up and hard to handle at Mike’s that night so there was always concern about what would happen with her at HiCaliber.  What happened was she got sick with Strangles and suffered in her own filth.  Her ultimate demise was similar to that of Nala’s having had Strangles and then exhibiting signs of colic which was likely a result of the abscesses bastardizing.  We recently had a post about Squirrel and how her illness progressed here.  Make no mistake this was a senseless and entirely preventable death.  Manson denied this horse a chance at a forever home more than once.  It is reasons like this that Manson is finding herself being run out of the rescue industry.  This is not rescue and this is not ok. RIP Summer Soprano  #sayherrealname

42

The above list is all the horses that have lost their lives at HiCaliber this year.  We are in our 17th week of the year and forty two horses are already dead.  That’s not counting the unnamed ones that have been killed, with at least three of them being within the past two weeks.  That means Manson is killing an average of more than two horses every single week.  Just looking at the list and it reads like an honor roll of senseless deaths.  At least three of them are dead as a direct result of  Strangles.  I can probably count on one hand the number that actually and legitimately needed to be released from suffering unrelated to their time at HiCaliber.  This is NOT rescue and this is exactly why Manson finds herself in the pickle she is in.  THIS is why there are haters and will continue to be as long as she is infesting the horse industry.

vidiot

As always, there isn’t much to say after the dead have been listed.  Despite the announcement of doors closing and the lip service being paid to going out on a high, it’s pretty much business as usual at HiCaliber.  Horses are being brought back to be warehoused, others are being shot and cons being run.  Only yesterday Romney Faye sat in an empty auction house crying for the camera and begging for money.  It seems closing the doors is a very good fund-raising angle as the donations continue to roll in.  Manson has found some sympathetic ears in the media willing to allow her to spew her propaganda without the inconvenience of a fact check and the village idiots collectively touch themselves in ecstasy as if that was some proof that none of this is happening.  It is happening and it’s not because people are anti-euthanisia.  It’s not because anybody has an issue with tats,  bad hair, or foul mouths.  Lord knows enough of us rock some or all of those same things.  What people are against is suffering and cruelty.  They’re against rewarding and covering for the very people that are mutilating and hurting these animals and Manson doesn’t even do that under the guise of collecting evidence.  She knew these tortured souls with broken bodies were her income source and the more mangled, the better.  People are against that and that is why Manson finds herself on the outside looking in.  She’ll tell you she `saved’ 500 horses a year but that’s a lie too.  When you have increased the suffering and exploited it, you are a big part of the problem and you need to go.

evil

These next few months are going to be rough as new schemes to raise funds  are hatched and Manson tries to make the whole `Angel of Death’ thing fly.  The more money rolls in, the longer she’s going to hang on until she has no choice.  I can assure you that she has been cleared of nothing and the investigations are open and active.  I can also assure you that the moles are all still very much in place and active.  Information still flows.  My job or intent with this blog has mostly been accomplished.  I got the word out as best I could and we created a community where people felt safe and supported in telling their own stories.    All the readers here are a huge part of that.  I’m not going away just yet,  as there is still work to do.  Until the investigations wrap up, I’ll do my best to keep people updated on where we’re at and we will continue to say the names of those horses we could not get relief to in time.  This is the hard part, but I think we’re all up to the challenge.  There is light at the end of the tunnel and, this time it is not an oncoming train.

This is going to be short and sweet today. I’m working on a bigger post with some updates that should be ready by the weekend but I have a little guest post for y’all today.  Originally, I was going to put this open letter in that post, but I feel like given the absolute and extreme fuckery that has gone on the past few days, it needed its own spot.  It’s not a long post, but it’s a good one.  Before we get into the open letter part of things, I’m going to put a little context into what prompted this so that maybe others can see the level of bullying and paranoia that is actually being played out behind closed doors. I’m also going to bookend it some hypocrisy from the head shithead so please read all the screen shots.  As always, thank you to our poster for saying your piece.  I have nothing but respect for you.  This one is fun!

shoooesss!

 

I hope I have these mostly in order.  It’s pretty easy to follow along anyhow.  All the usual suspects are fixated on Barbara Benson and this was from auction just this past Tuesday courtesy of Maggot and Pasterfuck’s private bat cave. Make sure you read how they tear apart this person who dared to show up at auction.  They even call her fat at one point and they aren’t content to tear just one person down, they rip apart anybody and everybody.  Now that we’ve got some context, let’s get to the guest post part of the festivities…

 

Dear Robyn, Suzanne, Margaret, Michelle Parsons, good ole Nancy, Tony and whoever else is oh so interested in me.

I am really not into speculations, so I will save you some time googling and spreading false information.
I am all for facts (something you have a hard time with).
Let me help you out here.

Robyn:
Not sure which poor soul you identified as me, but I was nowhere near Ontario, Tuesday 04.10.
As a matter of fact, I was shooting in Glendale.
I had a 8am calltime and we wrapped around 6pm.
I even made my FB public, so you can see for yourself.
I also wasn’t at auction with some blue water bottle last week or the week before.
Allegedly someone has pictures.
I must have a lot of Doppelgängers. I had no clue.

Suzanne:
Gold star for figuring out my legal name.
Either you reversed searched my cell number, which is easy enough for $4.95.
Or the auction house identified me, which would be illegal, but then again, so is speeding.

Margaret:
I am totally chubby in the world of skinny Hollywood folks. No doubt. Maybe we should start a diet together. You don’t really look in shape these days either.
We do have a mutual friend. You guys went to school together, he said. If you need more info about me, call him. He knows me well.

So let me tell you about me.
I have been a producer all my adult life. A good 20+ years.
I won’t list my achievements or jobs. That you can google. Easy enough. Right.
I also consult on horse intense jobs, being in the industry and being a life long equestrian.
I am a private advocate and rescuer. Never make public who I support and what horses I rescued. But be assured, I not only financially support rescues, but also have a few horses in sanctuary from local rescues and find placement for horses in need in CA and out of state.

Robyn.
Remember the 25.00 mare, ummm blind gelding, from your epic rant last week. You know, the one with shoes.
I committed to that horse before he was loaded into Vera’s trailer.
He will be coming to my ranch after QT.
You saw me give ALR money. I did. For the horses they purchased that day.

I currently have 11 on my ranch, which I own. 6 are either fosters or sanctuary horses.
I have 2 out of state.
Needless to say. On my own dime.

I sure hope to see you all next week in Ontario.
Suzanne, I am still looking for 1 mostly white paint and a donkey .I found a good assortment in Billings, Montana.

Feel free to ask any questions you think are unanswered.
I really want to help you guys out here.

Sincerely,
Barbara M. Benson
Ps: I do often go by my middle name. Long story. Maybe I tell you one day

 

 

marg

The top few screen shots I pulled out of their auction attack posts for some flavor.   Obviously the pictures are of Mags in all her red-faced glory and then we have a long-winded explanation about how unbothered she is by that.  I dunno what Marg’s `fat ass’ has to do with HC and helping horses, but I also don’t really know what attacking private citizens has to do with HC either.  Doesn’t HiCaliber screech about the `haters’ stepping up?  So when one does try to do that quietly to help some horses on her own dime, they get torn apart in private forums.  Get over yourself, Village Idiots.  We’re going to need a whole bunch more people like Barbara Benson in the immediate future.  Meanwhile, buckle up because I got a LOT more to say over the next few days…BTW Mags, I know you say you don’t look like these pics anymore and that would be true.  You look worse.  You stick out like a sore thumb at Santa Anita.  Get a bigger dog to hide behind maybe? Also, I can’t speak for Jennifer Marek, but I’m the one that called you a moonface on THIS blog and I stand by that.  Your detective skills suck so much ass, Mags.  Grow up.
