NOTE:  RE:  TWO COMPLAINTS FILED ON THE INTERNET

Before you look at our horses, you may have seen the two complaints against me on the
internet posted by two different families – 2015 and most recent, 2017.  If you read the 
entire complaints, and “my replies” to their false allegations, – you will find that I offered
to re-sell their two horses and refund their money.  They refused.  The couple in Oklahoma? 
Wanted  a refund— but —”wanted to keep the horse”. 
 
The woman in Georgia?   She was frantic with insisting on sending her mare back to me
to re-sell…..with me finding out later…..there was nothing wrong with the mare—and the
reason she insisted on sending the mare back to me ASAP….was because she boarded and
the boarding facility did not have an extra stall for her to have two horses……She had
found one she liked better.  She paid $1800 for this mare,….sent it back to me “after” I
explained several times…..that if it took 3 -4 months— as it sometimes does, especially
due to it was winter months ——-to resell her mare,……..our boarding fees of $400 a month,
plus shoeing, worming, etc.,  would be minused off the refund of her purchase price of $1800 
and she could very well end up with nothing!!!   She still…..after all of this…..insisted on sending
the mare back to Ky., ——and that is —–exactly what happened!!!   She then got angry
because I did not send her a refund.   As far as I know, (received photos 2016) —the new owner
of this same mare still has her and loves her!!
 
Both couples threatened basically….tried to blackmail me into “doing exactly what they wanted”,
and when I did not give into their threats of ruining my name, reputation, and stopping my sales,
…..The vicious complaints were filed for the whole world to see.   I believe in doing what is right
with all things in my life,……and I will NOT be blackmailed into doing something that is not right
in my heart.   If you saw these complaints, then I ask you to please contact the MANY families that 
I have worked with over the past ten years!!   
TWO complaints out of HUNDREDS OF HORSES SOLD!!!!   After doing this, –whatever your
decision, —-please do what you feel is right in your heart when choosing who to purchase from
when buying your next horse!   And really think long and hard – if you have Special Needs
and/or Children!!!
 
I am posting a few of my  RECENT  references on this page
for your convenience.  I am  So grateful for all the families  that I have had the opportunity to work
with over the past ten years.  Because of  them, – now – 95% of my horses are sold by
phone or e-mail,  shipped, and paid for by bank wire.  I realize how very difficult it is to trust 
that you receive the horse described to you.  The descriptions of my horses are long……I write
from my heart and describe each horse to the best of my ability ——– thoroughly and honestly.  
Because it is so difficult for families to do this with so much distrust, apprehension, and fear, I have
pasted a few names of families that you may contact.  And there are MANY! on our Testimonial page!!
Thank you so much,….Connie

From: Barbara Williams <wwllm@yahoo.com>        -      
Subject: Sadie —-Came in Person & Paid Cash
 
Hi Connie, I just had to let you know how happy I am with Sadie.
 I had almost given up on finding a horse but she is truly my
dream horse. She is everything you said she is and more.   I can’t
 believe how lucky I am to find such a perfect horse. Maybe it is
the colder weather,  but she is also far from a dead head. She has
the most incredibly smooth rack and does not  require being
 ridden a certain way. I can ride her with a loose rein or contact
and in any position and she still has that amazing rack. The only
 thing that I can say remotely negative,  is that she is the top of
the pecking order, and my husband’s horse would probably prefer
 her to live elsewhere. Too bad! I love her. –

 -And- A family in Chipley, Florida – Dennis and Linda – Have  EIGHT
 of my horses!  They came in person and purchased a horse trailer
and two horses.  Over a period of 7 years, they purchased 6 more
 by phone – payments by bank wire.   There are reference letters
from Dennis on the “Testimonial Page” ……that he wrote to
 families who contacted him.  I have several families that have
bought one horse only to come back later and buy another. 
Some families have 2 -3 of my horses.  Dennis & Linda  have several
McDonald’s restaurants. Very Busy Family!  He has been so kind
“to take so much time!!”—-to talk to so many families that have
 called or e-mailed  him.  He has sent long e-mails describing their
experiences with  me.    They are posted on the Testimonials page.

Bernadette – N. C. – December 22nd, 2016 –
Purchased “Blue” now known as “Moon Pie”..
Tue 1/31/2017 ———9:08 PM——————
From: Bernadette 

Subject: Moon Pie (formerly Blue)——-Message Body: 

Hi Connie, Just wanted to let you know, I am
madly in love with Moon Pie, he is exactly as
you described, and he is the darling of the barn
where he is boarded.  I was very nervous buying
 my first horse, and I am SO glad I found you! 
Moon Pie is truly the horse I’ve dreamed of all my
life.————-At only 5 years old, he is so kind and
gentle, and as laid back and people loving as you
 said.  If I ever decide to get another horse, I am
coming right back to you, and would gladly purchase
sight unseen (and I never thought I would be willing
 to do anything like that).
I found you to be completely honest and forthright,
and look forward to continuing to keep in touch with
 and hopefully see you in the future.  Really, I can’t
say enough good things about my experience and
my horse.  All the very best to you!—-Bernadette

PLEASE Read! -–I have had  (just this past week three families)—–several families in different states to share their horror story with buying tranquilized horses!  One was full of Bute and had laminitis.  There have been so many families that have gone through this devastating experience – and some have been seriously injured.  The most popular is the tranquilizer that last 3 weeks.—–Besides the physical injuries, – most have suffered emotionally and taken a huge financial loss.  They are sending these dangerous horses to families with children! ———We guarantee that we use no tranquilizers, calmers, or pain meds with our horses!! —-Each is vet checked, - upon OUR purchase of each horse and then vet checked again prior to day of transport —–Their teeth are checked – floated, and  other work if needed, ——– and each has current coggins/health!

SCAMMER ALERT!!!!——THERE ARE SCAMMERS USING ADS THAT BELONG TO OTHER PEOPLE TO FRAUDULENTLY COLLECT MONEY FROM INNOCENT PEOPLE SHOPPING FOR HORSES ON THE INTERNET. THIS WEEK, I SOLD OUR BEAUTIFUL MARE, BELLE, TO A FAMILY IN PA. FOR HER PURCHASE PRICE OF $4,200.——-HE WAS LOOKING AT HORSES IN THE PENNSAVANIA, NE AREA.  SURPRISINGLY ENOUGH, HE CAME ACROSS AN AD – “MY AD”  OF BELLE, THE SAME MARE HE JUST BOUGHT FROM “ME” —–THE SAME MARE THAT I HAVE ON MY HORSECLICKS ACCOUNT WITH MY OTHER HORSES…….WITH BELLE PRICED AT $1500.  THE AD, PHOTOS, AND VIDEOS WERE MINE!!!—- THEY DELETED MY NUMBER FROM THE AD.  HOW IN THIS WORLD ONE CAN DO THAT I DO NOT KNOW!!!!!——-THE TOWN ON THEIR AD WAS ELMIRA, NEW YORK. THE CONTACT INFO located on the right side of every Horseclicks ad —-WAS AS FOLLOWS:  (424) 781-4126 BUT, WHEN WE CALLED THIS NUMBER – SCAMMER TEXT BACK THAT HE WAS IN CA– HIS USER NAME on ad:  RANDYAWESOME242 —————-   I REPORTED THIS TO MANAGEMENT OF HORSECLICKS THIS DATE – 9-21-17.  THEY HAVE TURNED IT OVER TO THEIR FRAUD DEPARTMENT FOR INVESTIGATION AS WELL AS REPORTED IT TO THE GOVERNMENT AGENCY WHO TRACKS DOWN SCAMMERS.—–  PLEASE!!! —-READ ENTIRE AD!  MY WEBSITE ADDRESS AS WELL AS CONTACT INFO IS ALWAYS INCLUDED IN THE “DESCRIPTION” OF ALL MY ADS!!!   DO NOT SEND MONEY ON ANY HORSES THAT HAVE MY WEBSITE ADDRESS (& OTHER INFO)– “ INCLUDED”– IN THE —-“DESCRIPTION”—– BUT!!–  “ HAS A DIFFERENT CONTACT NAME AND NUMBER TO E-MAIL”—— (LOCATED ON RIGHT SIDE OF ALL ADS)—- PLEASE!!!—-CONTACT ME – CONNIE WESLEY, FOREST RIDGE FARM – (606)–271 —1064.  THESE SCAMMERS ARE USING OTHER HORSE ADS THAT DO NOT BELONG TO THEM!!!  (3 FROM GA. CAME UP LISTED AS “SIMILAR” ADS WITH THE SAME CONTACT INFO.!!!)-   YOU MUST BE CAREFUL!!! –

MY INFO:  CONNIE WESLEY, SCIENCE HILL KY. –

WEBSITE: HTTP://WWW.FORESTRIDGEFARM.COM

E/M:  connie@forestridgefarm.com –———-OR ——– welovehorses@twc.com

PHONE: (606) -271-1064.  “thank you”……….

9-25-17….UPDATE!!!!:  —After our attempts to obtain more information, my rider called this scammer and inquired about Belle and was told that “he” (scammer) lives in CA. – Mare is in N.Y.  When asked “why is mare in NY”…..his reply:  “because people in CA. do not treat their horses good”.  (Must have been caught off guard with that questions).  So then, – Family who “actually purchased Belle from “me”—THIS PAST WEEK –, tried to contact this scammer and found out the following:     ———- “He’s definitely foreign from the middle-east, hard to understand and goes by the name of Ive Jr Labloch.  He said he’s from Florida and they got hit by the hurricane and needs to sell her and that the horse is located at his uncle house 8025 NW 120 St. Reddick Florida 32686——He also called me from another cell phone 469-677-8323”.   —————–

All my horses will be on my website as well as other ad sites.  I have been doing this for ten years, and I have MANY references and testimonials from families I have sold to…..most all payments made by bank wire.  Because of the testimonials, 95% of my horses are sold site unseen, payment by bank wire, and shipped.  I take care of transporting arrangements and I am here for you “after” the sale…………What happened this week is just unbelievable……and so very scary.  It would break my heart for a family to buy from this scammer,…..thinking they were getting the beautiful horse in one of my ads, like Belle,……and not get the horse…..This is really bad………When searching for a horse on the internet, you have got to be sure…you are communicating with the person who actually owns the horse!!!
