    I have contacted her about a few horses back when I had a student looking.
    Other than that- I have never heard of her and yet she seems to somehow get all these champions/international horses yet never gives the details (horse name, competition, etc) when asked and instead asked us a ton of Q's to see if we'd be a match for the horse...
    She may have nice horses (we never went to look) but just to be safe- go in with eyes wide open.

    Cool

    I probably should have sought it out prior to doing business with her...

    just curious mpack, not trying to create anything here, but were her horses what she said they were? I've seen her adds on dreamhorse before and have a hard time believing that she is getting the champion horses she claims.

    Thumbs down Britney Sturtz and Brit LeBrand Farm

    This one is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Claimed on Dreamhorse that the horse was "for sale" but when we got there, suddenly, that price is the "forever home" adoption price and an outright purchase, if she can bring herself to do it, is at least twice the price. The "forever home" adoption comes with the horse and with her. Forever. She won't sell me the horse, and now she won't let me return him either. We will be asking Coshocton County sheriff for an escort to return the horse this week. In spite of refusing to sign paperwork she'd agreed to for a sale of the horse, she's still cashing the check and "maybe" will give us a pro-rated refund. Won't (or can't) produce coggins or health records on horses that she's allegedly acquired outside of Ohio. The rehab we "adopted" was a good 800 pounds underweight, and in spite of an extremely obvious and painful tendon/suspensory/navicular injury and a "therapeutic" shoe job that resulted in abscesses in both front feet, she stated that she did not have her vet examine the horse or provide any medical treatment for him for over 9 weeks while he was in her "care". Several thousand dollars in vet, farrier, feed and board bills, she thanks us for our "fantastic" care of the horse but will not take him back. Approach this one with extreme caution.

    Why in the world would you return a horse to her? And seriously EIGHT HUNDRED pounds underweight? What kind of beast did you adopt? That doesn't sound right. at. all.

    I don't know her from atom (or is it Adam?) but that last post has me scratching my head.

    I can't believe the ink hasn't even dried from her last lawsuit (that she lost by the way) and she's already at it again- what a shame. If you adopt a horse, are you agreeing to take on the responsibility of any and all problems the horse might have, like if you adopt a child? What I don't understand is (and it's probably spelled out in your paperwork) why does she still have so much control after the "adoption" has taken place? I mean, you can't return the horse, but if she thinks your "forever home" isn't good enough she can come and take it back? I don't understand either why you would want to take the horse back to her after you have invested all the time and money to rehab the horse, unless you plan on trying to get your money back. If that's the case, good luck...

    Unhappy

    I can relate to "dogontired's" situtation. As I indicated in my previous posts--I made the major misstep of getting involved with her. I signed the contract-now clearly an error-just believing she wanted the assurance the horse was getting a good home. [edit] Her latest: she contacted me and said the breeder of the horse that I purchased from her (an untatooed supposedly TB geld she called "Halo") offered her the horse's registration papers. She said she decided to purchase the papers from the breeder-she signed the transfer of ownership(on my horse) and offered the papers to me for $1500.

    I don't understand your issue with this? Yes if you adopt/buy/otherwise acquire a horse, the responsibility for ALL of it's care and problems are now yours. This is not new, nor should it be a surprise Also if you didn't want to accept responsibility for all of that, how would the seller be able to do that without continued participation? This whole thread has me

    I think the point is that the person who adopts/buys/acquires the horse from X should not have to report to X anymore than X should report to the person that THEY got the horse from...

    I guess the deal is where does it end and when can people just own their animal outright ??

    Default to hundredacres and traum

    follow up to your notes -- I have adopted several retired racehorses over the years, and thought that this would be a similar routine. But no, it's not. First sucker punch from [her] is that you don't get to see any of the paperwork until you are standing there on her parents' farm, looking at the horse. I should have walked away at that point, because all of a sudden there was the "forever home" price and the "sale" price. Funny how the ad on Dreamhorse stated "sale/adopt - same price". But she presented me with the statement that she needed to "move" this horse "right now, today" because she has several rescue horses coming in the very next day. The girl is 24 and claims she has placed over 2300 horses. She lives 20 miles from Sugarcreek. You do the math.

    I am done with the harrassment, the phone calls, the psychodrama and the "I'm on my way" to pick up the horse BS. I negotiated a bill of sale in good faith with [her] that included a warranty that she is conveying good and clear title to the horse to me. Lo and behold, I send the signed document with a cashiers check, and suddenly I get this email from [her] (at work, no less) accusing me of being unprofessional and unethical, and who did I think I was, she NEVER would consider using any bill of sale but her own. Here's what her bill of sale says - we love that you're taking such wonderful care of our horse, we'll sell the horse to you but retain the right to receive monthly updates and pix for the rest of his life, access to your vet and farrier and copies of all records, and an open invitation to allow her access the horse "to make sure he's ok". Forever. Are you kidding me?????? This is a bill of sale????? Oh yeah, by the way, her bill of sale and her adoption contract both fail to state that she has good and clear title to the horse. Surprise!

    I don't mind adopting or buying a horse, but I will not be involved with this [person] for the rest of the horse's life. If you think you want to rescue this poor horse after we return him this week, watch Dreamhorse for a posting on a "rehab project" from rocnchocolatediesel. Our price was $1000 for the adoption, $2000 for the purchase. The horse has profound navicular, rotated coffin bones in both front feet, a deep flexor tendon trauma injury that is not showing any signs of progress after 10 weeks, and was low nerved at some point in his life. This she presented as a "rehab project" when I told her we were looking for a jumper for my husband. At least we gave him unconditional love and care for 10 weeks and put several hundred pounds on him. The rest of this poor animal's life is in God's hands and on her head.

    Wow. Thanks for the clarification. I didn't quite get the original post but now see the fruit loop side pretty clear. Sorry you have to deal with the crap.
