I'd suggest posting this saga over in the hunter/jumper forum. You are going to reach a much larger audience of JB's potential buyers there. They ought to know what a scumbag she is.
As for people doing business with her and showing her horses... why on earth would anyone do business with someone who had screwed over John French to the extent that he had to take them to court? Aside from being IMHO *the* best hunter rider out there, John also has to be one of the nicest people in the business.
In any kind of business I have been involved in, startup to multinational corporation, we don't do business with people who have a history of not paying. It's a non-starter. End of story.
I really don't understand how this woman isn't rotting in jail right now.
What I KNOW are people who have been financiall screwed by GFF and I've seen more than enough to have the opinion that this woman is a HOARDER. And the horses are paying the price now and will into the future. I would venture a good guess that she's financially bankrupt but just doesn't want to face reality and get help to do a "work out plan".
I hope the people who have horses/foals with her get them out as soon as possible. And if JB has even a partial brain in her head she will STOP BREEDING and get herself financially solvent.
At last count on HER website, she is now up to 40+ broodmares and 20+ young stock...
My search for a photo did bring up active warrants for her in the county of Washington state of Virgina from the year 2006 for writing bad checks. No wonder she is shielding herself from publically posted photos or being tagged in photos; so many warrants in so many states.
For some reason, True Colors brought my name into this thread. We do have Rapture to show and she has gone to 6 horse shows as of 5/19/12 with us. She is a lovely filly and as sweet as they come. Gray Fox Farm has paid all entries and she has kept square with us. We have a good working relation with Jill and hope to continue to do so. Who is the filly that people are trying to find?
Oh good! Well if she seems to have $ for you do you think you could get me the $2300 she owes me in import tax and maybe send back the stud fees she owes into Canada for those 4 people who bought breedings from her and NEVER got their semen...they got their breeding certificates though tell her THANKS!
I have been reading all this with amazement and distress....how can this go on? I am not great on the computer and cannot figure how to read this "blog" by JB. Could someone post the link...if it is on here I missed it. I would also appreciate the link to the stolen mare...I was confused as to which one it was. Thanks
