Does anyone here personally know these people? I don't have time to read ALL of the stuff they have written (not that I want to) I just can't believe how weird the whole situation is. Are the people on their black list really "bad" people or what? Jeepers, what a wreck.
They've changed it on the website. This is the original:
Sadly, we've realized we must close down the adoption program. No one is adopting the dogs or the horses and we can't afford to keep them. Tomorrow I'm due another feed delivery that costs us $1680. for each delivery and only lasts us a month and we don't have the money. Additionally I've realized that I've moved in with a man who is a liar, a slob and an alcoholic and he does not care about these animals at all, he's selfish and only cares about himself. I believe he even lied about his horse experience as he is dangerous in the barn. He's drunk most mornings by about 8am and even drives drunk so he's going to kill someone. I really want no part of that, he just has some serious problems and dishonesty that we just can't live with.
This does not release any adopters from their adoption contracts and we will continue to help adopters place their horses from their homes when they can no longer keep them. I will continue to do this forever and be around to enforce and support the existing contracts with adopters but we are no longer taking horses and dogs here and we must place all these animals that we have immediately as we just do not have the funds to take care of them or feed them. This is an urgent request that should be cross posted, we need homes for all these horses and dogs.
We will be raising money to move back to our old farm and maybe eventually we can get on our feet to eventually and start over but I suspect it may take years to repair this damage that has taken place from this upheaval and the months we spent preparing for the move, the move itself and the months that its taken us to get settled in and be functional. Anyone who has the heart to help it would be much appreciated. It cost us at least 12.5k to move and sadly we are no where where we should be to be ready for winter so we may even lose our old farm. Ed promised to help us get stable but he's now reneging on all his promises. That is what I get for trusting someone.
Thank you all for your continued friendship, inspiration and support,

Not like CBER isn't getting the cash cow working directly with a feedlot operator.
Shame on them.
You're right about CBER, but the above quote was from Crossed Sabers.
Never ceases to amaze (and depress. and disgust.) me how vulnerable entitites whether they be horses, dogs, cats, or even human children bring out the psychos who claim to be saving while really they cause far more harm then those they rant against.
Even more depressing is seeing how good they are at recruiting well-meaning, innocent dupes to their cause. <shaking head> I see at least 2 'rescue' groups that were recommended by innocent well-meaning folk on today's board alone that I wouldn't trust with my childhood Breyer collection, let alone a living horse.
I miss ignorance...I slept a lot better at night back then.
Boy, I guess I missed a lot. I too thought it was CBER but never heard of Crossed Sabres. Are they affiliated seeing as they use the same initials and hey, you guys helped pay for her move????????????????????From WV to WA. wow. Now she needs to move back to the old farm which wasnt good enough then????????
Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.
