*Question of the day*

If you caught your horses herding next to the neighbors fence line on numerous occasions and on this given day you had just fed the horses within the hour, there was a huge hay roll in the field, no horses eating hay, but 8 horses were gathered at the neighbors fence line watching the neighbor, what would this make you think? If all of the fence poles in the entire back pasture were undamaged, except for the two facing the neighbor’s property, what does this tell you? Isn’t it true that horses chew wood as a bad habit because they are bored? Why would horses stand and chew at the same 2 fence poles in front of the neighbors house when there are at least 50 other fence poles to chew? Why do you suppose they spend so much time standing by the fence, in front of these 2 fence poles right in front of the neighbor’s house where she works at all day.

LET ME TAKE YOU ON A TOUR OF THE BACK FENCE LINE

Here is the West side of the property. Notice fences are stretched tight and all poles are intact.

At the Southwest corner I turned, facing the property, and took pictures of the property at an angle.

The next set of pictures are the back, Southside of the property, facing the area that we have not fenced off as of yet.

As I reach the Southeast corner of the property, I turn around to take another photoshot of the property.

Now I am following my way down the East fence line of the property that separates us from the Korans. The fence is very old, rusted, and falling down. It has been here for many years. Bob put a strand of barbed wire over the top of their fence to keep the horses from pushing their fence down. As I took my walk of the property the other day, I discovered that the back, 3 sections of fencing, the barbed wire has been cut down from the pole and the barbed wire was thrown on the ground on our side of the property in coils where the horses could step into it and get tangled.

Then we follow the fence line down, all poles as you can see thus far are still intact, even on their side.

Right here at this point you will notice that the next few fence poles are chewed in half. Notice in the background of these pictures that this area is directly across from the front area of the Koran’s home where Karen feeds Mattie and waters the sand, so the weeds will grow.

I turned around to take a picture of the RV, just so you could see the position of where the chewed fence poles were and the RV blocking our view behind this.

When I first discovered 8 horses herding by the fence line, I did not have my camera on me. After directing the horses back to the hay roll and having a few words with Karen Koran, I then went into the house to get my camera. As you can see by these 2 pictures below, Matilda made her way back over here to look for more yummies. You can see I caught her from behind, she was scanning the ground and looking towards the Koran’s.

As you all know we have experienced a lot of flooding this summer due to the torrential downpours. Our property has picked a favorite spot to flood here in the front yard, leaving the rest of the acreage dry after the rains. Due to many horses being rescued and rehabilitated here at the DERR, we do believe that a layer of manure was keeping the grounds from soaking up the water in the front pasture, as well as this area being much lower than the rest of the property, leaving the water no place to run off.

Ted Koran has taken advantage of this catastrophe, using this as a way to rally others against us. I had personally taken pictures of the flooding grounds over the summer, in which Ted Koran had used our pictures against us to paint an ugly picture.

standing water

We vowed that after the season had passed that we would bring out a tractor to clean the grounds and remove the top layers of the soil and replace it with clean dirt.

Just this past weekend on December 1, 2013, a Facebook friend loaned us their tractor to clean the grounds. Bob started cleaning the grounds and piling the dirt over to one side. His efforts have been slowed down due to a faulty welding job on the bucket arms. His work came to a stop temporarily while the tractor is being repaired.

Ted Koran took the liberty to post a few of his own pictures at a distance, probably taken from his video camera that is mounted on his house.

His caption is as follows: “DE piling the horse poop on the property line and onto our property. I will wait for him to get done, return the tractor, and call the sheriff.”

Here’s yet another horse, Mikey, that he has chosen to do his own photo-op with his cellphone camera to show a photo comparison (before and after) of horses here in our care.

The picture below was a picture of Mikey on arrival to the DERR on October 2, 2013.

Ted Koran then took several pictures through the fence, at a distance, with his cellphone and made claims that Mikey was losing weight.

I then went outside to take a comparison picture of Mikey on October 30, 2013, at the same time at night, facing the same way, so that people could compare the picture of him when he came in until the date of the picture.

Below is a picture I took of Mikey when he arrived here at the DERR on October 2, 2013 combined with another picture taken on October 30, 2013.

Mikey October 30

He then proceeds to explain these comparisons to a Facebook friend by using his pictures and my pictures, but yet no one seems to know that the original picture of mine that started the post that Lizzy Taylorhaiflich posted was taken originally on November 8, 2013, and he is looking great.

Here’s a series of other picture comparisons posted by Ted Koran against the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch.

Below are pictures that belong to the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch regarding Chatterbox that Ted Koran posted on Facebook via Internet.

His first picture is Chatterbox dated 3-28-13.

Ted Koran then proceeds to post another one of my pictures dated on 5-3-13 of Chatterbox. If you notice in the picture, she has her back legs tucked under her flexing her buttocks causing there to be less rib show than in an outstretched picture.

This last picture that Ted Koran took from my Facebook page is Chatterbox dated on 5-23-13. Ted Koran’s caption is “See the difference” along with a few other not so tasteful comments.

BUT, my question is this: WHY DO THE PICTURES STOP ON 5-23-13???

WHY DIDN’T TED KORAN POST THIS PICTURE OF CHATTERBOX DATED 5-23-13???

HOW ABOUT THIS PICTURE OF CHATTERBOX DATED ON JUNE 16, 2013.

MY QUESTION IS THIS, IS TED KORAN TRYING TO PAINT A PICTURE THAT HE WANTS EVERYONE TO SEE OR IS HE POSTING FACTS???

Ted Koran has been playing picture games with us since 2010, and is still toying with us today.

Below are pictures that Ted Koran is posting in a “CLOSED” group trying to mislead people about the rescue and suggest that horses are losing weight over a period of time in our care. In fact, the pictures below, Ted Koran is suggesting that the horse in it’s emaciated state is from the effects of being at Domino Effect.

Below is Ted Koran’s first screen shot of my pictures that he took off my page. He posted this screen shot in a “closed group” regarding Leah who arrived here on February 10, 2012. He dates this screen shot “2-10-12”

ted koran 2-10-12

The next screen shot that Ted Koran posts in this very same “closed group” is this one below. His caption is as follows “Leah 10-13-12, she didn’t arrive this way”

Below is also my picture that he took off my page and added it to the computer from his computer

ted Koran leah 10-13-12

BUT THE TRUTH IS, THE PICTURE ABOVE WAS NOT TAKEN ON 10-13-12.

THE ACTUAL PICTURE WAS LOADED TO MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE ON MARCH 4, 2012, 3 WEEKS AFTER HER ARRIVAL TO THE DOMINO EFFECT, THE DAY AFTER SHE MISCARRIED A FOAL.

This was Leah on May 23, 2012, just 3-1/2 months after she arrived here to the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch

This was Leah’s Evaluation Day:

Leah's evaluation


Leah was adopted out to Melinda Ashby in Port St. Lucie, Florida on July 20, 2012.

We received a phone call 5 months later from Melinda Ashby. She called to tell us that we needed to come get Leah because she had to move out of state and could not take care of her anymore.

This is how Leah was returned on November 27, 2012, from the adopter, Melinda Ashby, after 5 months of being in her care.

This was Leah’s last ride with a 12-year-old boy. She will be forever remembered.

Unfortunately, after almost successfully getting her weight back up to normal once again in the spring of 2013, we lost Leah to a strangulating colic.

We had a necropsy done and it was found that a large portion of her intestines to be necrosis due to the intestine twist.
