Brit Le'Brand Farm/Britney Sturtz/BLB Equine Rescue
There was another long thread on this subject, and I just wanted to re-adress this. http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum....php?p=3414554
Has anyone that had issues with B sought legal counsel? If so, what is the current situation? There have been a couple complaints listed on the AG website.
If all the people who "adopted" horses from B would file a report with the IRS http://www.irs.gov/compliance/articl...180171,00.html, reflecting the amount the "adoption" fee was (which in most cases seems to be equal or higher than a normal purchase price for a horse), she may be in quite a pickle with the IRS! Since the previous thread states that she has placed so many horses, and I'm assuming there was quite a bit of $$$ exchanged for this, I'm betting she did not claim this $$$, nor does she have a 501c??? (I think that's the form).
I also know there may be other people out there that have had/are having bad dealings with her, but are afraid to publicly list them, possibly due to impending legal dealings, etc...! If this is the case, maybe you can offer to allow anyone that would like to join forces, a way to contact you-without posting on this forum (since it seems B reads these).

thanks for starting a new thread, gives me the opportunity to post her new nom-de-jour............

I just purchased a horse and a pony from her for my 12 year old daughter! When I went to pick up the horse, he fell down in the trailer and went under the divider in my trailer going down the highway. He wasn't anything like what Britney told me he was!!! She assured me that he was "child safe" and now my daughter has no horse. The pony has been lame since the day I brought him home. Someone needs to call me about this....330571-5007. I would like to hear more about all of this.

This farm is out in the country and no one who is a disinterested witness will be able to (a) testify on your behalf and (b) tell the sheriff where the body can be found unless you arrange for a safe escort.
