Archive for the ‘The Tobins ~ Call A Spade A Spade’ Category

A local hate group here in Brooksville, extending down to Gallops Stable in Ft. Myers, called for an investigation here at the DERR several months ago after we lost a horse to liver failure.

This group has been following our every move for several years now, insinuating and publicizing the worst possible scenario in every action, photo op, or status post to paint a horrific picture to the public with never seeking documented facts in any given situation.

After these fine folks called the Hernando Ag officer out to the DERR, the very next day Maryann Tobin posted on the Examiner this article with the assumption that Deputy Adkins had passed the inspection here at DERR. She worded the article to reflect her own opinion rather than to wait 2 months later for the “official document” proving the outcome of our inspection.

Maryann Tobin is a journalist who has been slandering and harassing the DERR since 2011 after her daughter and I had a disagreement followed by threats from her daughter stating that her mother would write false reports against the DERR to have us shut down.

Each article that is posted gives this “hate group” another link to spread around FB to influence others to view these negative reports as truth. Each article that is posted against the DERR remains tagged to our name on the Internet and can be viewed anytime our name is Googled. False reports written by Maryann Tobin with the personal intent to destroy the DERR.

These reports with Documentations can be found within my blogs under the category “The Tobins ~ CAll a Spade A Spade.”

Last week we did, however, receive the final report on the investigation that this hate group called for several of months ago. The report was unfounded and we were given a thumbs up for the great job that we continue to do here at the DERR.

Below is the small clips of the article that Maryann Tobin posted in the Examiner on May 17, 2013, the day we put Leah to rest. I will NO LONGER share Maryann Tobin’s links on my FB page or blog page because she gets paid for every visitor that comes to her page. In essence, she is profiting with her efforts to destroy the DERR with her misinformation to the public in the form of insinuating malpractice on our part.

Below is the first part of Maryann Tobin’s article copied from her online post.

    Maryann Tobin States:

“On Friday morning, Robert and Dinelle Ashcraft of Domino Effect ranch in Weeki Wachee, Fla., waited for a backhoe to arrive so they could bury “Leah,” the third horse that has died in their care during the past 6 weeks.

On the Domino Effect ranch Facebook page, the Ashcraft’s said, “There is nothing fishy going on. We did lose 3 horses in the past 6 weeks and have vet reports documenting each one. All died from unpreventable causes. Each one was seen extensively by a vet and ALL were treated by the vet and us to the fullest extent. We have vet records documenting this.”

Leah’s sudden and rapid death was attributed by Ashcraft to “knotted up intestines,” more commonly known as colic.”

    Domino Effect shares EDUCATIONAL information:

Colic in horses is defined as abdominal pain, but it is a clinical sign rather than a diagnosis. The term colic can encompass all forms of gastrointestinal conditions which cause pain as well as other causes of abdominal pain not involving the gastrointestinal tract. The most common forms of colic are gastrointestinal in nature and are most often related to colonic disturbance. There are a variety of different causes of colic, some of which can prove fatal without surgical intervention. Colic surgery is usually an expensive procedure as it is major abdominal surgery, often with intensive aftercare. Among domesticated horses, colic is the leading cause of premature death. The incidence of colic in the general horse population has been estimated between 10 and 11 percent on an annual basis. It is important that any person who owns or works with horses be able to recognize the signs of colic and determine whether or not a veterinarian should be called.

    Domino Effect States:

In the morning on May 16, 2013, Bob awoke to Leah being down. Bob immediately called Brian, who was delivering a foal, and then Sarah. He was on the phone with both Sarah and Brian the whole morning and they were instructing us on how to treat her before they could get to us. Brian was delivering a foal, so he could not come right away. Leah had reflux with fluids coming out of her nose. Sarah thought at first it was choke.

Leah, May 3, 2013, just 2 weeks before she passed.

945719_608104445867227_1449354620_n

We were able to get her on her feet and give her fluids just as we were told. We had her up and she was walking around on her own will with me leading her. Brian said he was on his way and that it was okay to let her lie down. We stopped walking and let her relax and within a few minutes she lied down. She started thrashing violently and then got a bad spasm throughout her whole body and then she died.

Brian arrived and we asked him to do a report for our records. He did a necropsy and found the small intestines to be twisted. Bob took pictures and you can see where there is healthy, white intestine, leading to red and then dark, purplish black where the intestines had knotted and died. There was no impaction and no way to prevent what happened to her yesterday.

After Leah died, Dr. Dillard did a necropsy and diagnosed her to have a strangulated lesion.

Leah's vet report-page-001

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_colic

    Definition for the diagnosis of a strangulating obstruction [edit]

Strangulating obstructions have all the same pathological features as a simple obstruction, but the blood supply is immediately affected. Both arteries and veins may be affected immediately, or progressively as in simple obstruction. Common causes of strangulating obstruction are intussusceptions, volvulus and displacement of intestine through a hole, such as a hernia, a mesenteric rent, or the epiploic foramen.

Maryann Tobin States: “The other 2 horses that died at Domino Effect ranch, the most recent about two weeks ago, also suffered from similar colic-like symptoms.”

Domino Effect States: Maryann Tobin is very wrong with her above statement. The 2 horses that died previously here at the DERR did not die from the same “colic-like symptoms.”

    Justice’s symptoms were in no way related to colic.

Justice came to us just 10 days prior before we laid him to rest.

164244_601695763174762_1932456810_n

Each day that Justice was in our care his symptoms progressed. He arrived very lethargic and depressed.

936502_604565876221084_44932747_n

His stools were loose with diarrhea. Within the first 2 days we noticed that he had no appetite. We also noticed that he was pinching the top layer of feed with his lips. Bob checked under his lips and found ulcers in his mouth.

ulcers

At the same time, he was noticed to have a bulge at the anus opening.

hemorrhoids

“Diarrhea or constipation may be seen in animals with hepatic disease. Diarrhea is more commonly seen in cattle than in horses with chronic liver disease or in animals with chronic fascioliasis and hepatotoxic plant poisonings.”

Bob immediately called the vet and scheduled him to come out first thing in the morning. Dr. Brian arrived to find Justice to have a protruding rectum. Dr. Brian had thought at the time that this was due to the excessive diarrhea. He was thought to have stomach ulcers, as well as the mouth ulcers. Dr. Brian floated Justice’s teeth and put him on ranitidine for the ulcers.

“Tenesmus followed by rectal prolapse is seen in some ruminants with liver disease. It may be associated with diarrhea, hepatic encephalopathy, or edema of the bowel from portal hypertension.”

The following day, the walls of Justice’s anus ruptured causing him to hemorrhage out his anal opening.

hemorrhaging

Bob called Dr. Brian out on a 911 call to check Justice. Dr. Brian gave him medications to stop the diarrhea and other medications to help restore the nutrients, electrolytes, and absorb any toxins that may be in his system. Dr. Brian also did blood work on Justice to check for any organ damage.

“Clinical signs of severe or terminal hepatic failure include coagulopathies and hemorrhage due to decreased production of clotting factors by the liver and possibly increased utilization in septic or inflammatory processes.”

Justice’s condition was quickly progressing. He was aimlessly walking, circling, head-pressing, and resting his head in our laps or on the steps. Justice’s condition accelerated to the point where he was suffering from HE (hepatic encephalopathy) with severe cerebral dysfunction causing him to be a great danger to himself and especially to others. First his front knees kept buckling underneath him and he would fall forward into the ground. This behavior became more violent, as he continuously lost control of his body, falling into anything or anyone that surrounded him. By the time we received the phone call with the test results, Justice’s condition was in the advanced stage of liver failure and within 24 hours we had to put Justice to rest.

“Horses with hepatic encephalopathy may be aggressive or demonstrate repetitive behaviors that make restraint difficult.”

“Signs of hepatic encephalopathy range from nonspecific depression and lethargy to head pressing, circling, aimless walking, dysphagia, ataxia, dysmetria, persistent yawning, pica, increased friendliness, aggressiveness, stupor, seizures, or coma.”

30347_604565902887748_1576754580_n

“In advanced cases, somnolence develops and obtunded behavior ensues. At this stage horses often show aggressive or violent behavior interspersed with the periods of stupor.”

After Justice’s diagnosis, we did some research concerning his condition. We learned that there were 8 horses that were seized from FER who suffered and died from liver failure due to eating poisonous plants out at FER. At the time the horses were seized from FER, a vet came out to update a coggins on each one of the horses. Justice had been seen to have “blood” in his urine prior to this, so his condition was described to the vet and the vet, therefore, prescribed an antibiotic for Justice without actually testing the urine.

After doing some research, I can’t help to wonder if this too was a sign. One of the symptoms of liver disease is high volumes of bilirubin being excreted through the urine causing it to be dark in color.

“In normal horses, the total bilirubin concentration is in the range of 0.2 to 5.0 mg/dL, with conjugated bilirubin in the range of 0 to 0.4 mg/dL. Conjugated bilirubin is water-soluble and detectable in the urine of horses only if blood concentrations become sufficiently increased to surpass the renal threshold (Photo 3); thus when urine tests positive for the presence of bilirubin, cholestatic disease should be suspected.”

We also learned that horses suffering from liver disease and/or liver failure should NOT have a diet high in protein, i.e. alfalfa pellets, cubes, or hay including other feeds that are high in protein, as this accelerates their condition.

“Affected animals should be fed carefully because dysphagia may be a problem. Relatively small amounts should be fed frequently. The diet should meet energy needs with readily digestible carbohydrates, provide adequate but not excessive protein, have a high ratio of branched-chain amino acids to aromatic amino acids, and be moderate to high in starch to decrease need for hepatic glucose synthesis.”

One very important factor that we learned through our research is that when a horse is suffering from liver disease, there may be no clinical signs of the liver disease until the liver has exceeded 60% to 80% damage. This is why it is so vital to draw blood on an equine when in question of poisonous plants or if the equine is suffering from emaciation to check for organ damage of any kind.

“Clinical signs of hepatic disease may not be evident until >60–80% of the liver parenchyma is nonfunctional or when hepatic dysfunction is secondary to disease in another organ system. “

“Liver disease should always be considered when nonspecific clinical signs, such as depression, weight loss, intermittent fever, and recurrent colic, are present without an apparent cause. Differentiation between acute and chronic hepatitis or failure based on the duration of clinical signs before presentation may be misleading, because the disease process is often advanced before clinical signs are evident. Early vague signs of depression and decreased appetite may be overlooked. Liver biopsy to determine the type of pathology, degree of hepatic fibrosis present, and the regenerative capabilities of the liver parenchyma is necessary for developing a treatment plan and giving an accurate prognosis.”

I can only wish that we could turn back time and had rescued Justice sooner. If only the blood work had been done a few months back, he could have been treated for the liver disease, and the liver, therefore, may have had a chance to repair itself.

But as we cannot turn back time, we DO NOT wish for Justice’s life to go in vain. We hope that Justice’s death will be a learning lesson for all to research on such poisonous plants that may be in your pastures and to treat every emaciated horse, as if there may be possible organ damage due to the starvation, and PLEASE have blood drawn to insure the best care for your equine’s future.

Please check out the links below, as there is very important, vital information regarding poisonous plants, liver failure, and hepatic encephalopathy.

Please go to the following link and check your pastures for these weeds that are VERY toxic to our equine. The results are “liver failure”. Please understand that the liver WILL NOT SHOW clinical signs of damage until it is 75% damaged. At that point in time, the chances of the liver healing itself are very slim to none. That is why receipt of an emaciated horse, should be followed with BLOODWORK IMMEDIATELY!

Failure to do so could result in an acceleration of damage to the liver by feeding TOO much protein before its time.

Abel, R.I.P.

On Friday, March 31, 2013, around 1:30: Robert Delaney Ashcraft States: I’m hurt and sorrowed immensely to say that we lost Abel at 12:30pm. Dr. Sara did all that she could. His issue was reflux and we were starting him on IV fluids. All of a sudden Abel started a severe limp on his right rear leg. Dr. Sara said it appeared to be his stifle had locked up or severe cramps. Afterwards it was deemed that an extreme pain attacked Abel and he was kicking out on the rear leg due his colon had flipped and shut down blood flow. He collapsed spattered and we were able to flip him. He was already brain dead at that point. Abel went fast and did not suffer. 10 Minutes after I yelled for Sara asking why he was limping. Abel was pronounced dead. I am heart broken. After I return from Ocala this afternoon, I will dig Abel’s grave by hand. If anyone is willing to assist me, since I am running on very little sleep. Message Dinelle on FB. Any assistance is GREATLY APPRECIATED. GOD BLESSED ME WITH MY TIME WITH ABEL FROM 2-4am and our 2 hour walk.

Below is the post that Maryann Tobin with the Examiner wrote on May 21, 2013. I will NO longer post her articles on my page for people to see her disgust, but rather will copy and paste them here on my blog. For every time that someone visits her posts, she makes money off her lies and hatred towards us.

*NOTE* Maryann Tobin and her daughter, Nikki Tobin have been to our rescue 2 consecutive weekends in a row back in the fall of 2011. This hatred spiraled out of control shortly after we refused to adopt a horse to Nikki Tobin and she then threatened that her mother would have us shut down. Again, all of this is documented here on this blog under the heading “The Tobins ~ Call A Spade A Spade”

Hernando County Animal Services responded to Domino Effect ranch in Weeki Wachee on Monday, after complaints of visibly malnourished horses came from the Humane Society of the United States and dozens of concerned citizens.

An inspection of the horses in the care of ranch owners Robert and Denel Ashcraft was performed by Deputy Adkins, which did note a malnourished horse, according to a county official familiar with the preliminary report.

However, Domino Effect ranch still passed the inspection with no actionable violations under current Florida law.

A score based on the Henneke body condition index is used by Hernando County Animal Services (HCAS) officers to assess the health of horses during an inspection. A score of 1 indicates a horse so malnourished it is near death. The highest score is 9, which is given to an obese horse.

Preliminary inspection findings revealed that a Domino Effect ranch horse was given a Henneke body condition score of 2 on Monday, indicating severe emaciation. But that is not considered an animal abuse violation in Hernando County.

Unlike California, Ohio, Texas, and other states, Florida does not have a legal minimum standard for the mandatory seizure of emaciated horses based on a Henneke body score, even if the horse is so malnourished it actually dies from starvation or related complications.

Domino Effect ranch, or any other Hernando County, Florida, horse owner subjected to an inspection, is only required by law to show Animal Services inspectors that they have water, cover, and feed “available” for their horses. There are no fixed or specific legal requirements regarding how, or if, the animals are actually fed.

Legal terms in Florida animal abuse laws such as, “adequate” and “reasonable” are ambiguous and open to subjective interpretation by Animal Services officers. Therefore, Floridians may keep emaciated and/or grossly malnourished horses in their care, and not necessarily face criminal animal abuse charges.

Animal rights advocates who have filed numerous complaints, claim that the Ashcraft’s have been “starving” the horses at Domino Effect ranch – and those assertions may be completely true. But it is not a legally actionable offense in Hernando County to “starve” horses, as long as food, water and shelter are visible at the time of the inspection.

Every horse at Domino Effect ranch could have a Henneke score of 1, and still conceivably pass an Animal Services inspection.

Deputy Atkins and Lt. Cameron of the Hernando County Sheriff’s office were contacted for official comments regarding the Domino Effect ranch on Tuesday afternoon. At this time, no reply has been received.

First of all, I want my readers to know that Maryann Tobin is responsible for 99% of the negative posts about us across the Internet. She has been working hand and hand with Ohana for almost 2 years now trying to shut us down. Please refer to the category in our blog called “The Tobins ~ Call a Spade a Spade”, also other categories that refer to the witch hunt are “I Don’t Have to Prove that I am Telling the Truth ~ You Have to Prove that I am Lying” “Birds of a Feather Flock Together” “Ted Koran’s Tall Tails” and the latest “Don’t be Fooled by the Inexperienced”.

I REALLY wish that all of our supporters could just jump in their cars and come see us and see the truth for themselves, but unfortunately most people who see this slander live much too far away to come see us, thus, they either believe what they hear or they do their research and look for the truth.

Of course, I would hope that those who are skeptical would research and find the truth. If you found this post, you may just be one of those people doing your research and I thank you for taking the time to read the truth.

Below are pictures of ALL the outdoor animals here at the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch that I took on May 21, 2013, 1 day after the Hernando County Ag Officer arrived at our gates to do an inspection due to the high-volume calls they were receiving from this hate group.

Horse (mini) #1 Meet Rerun: Rerun came in named Sandy. He is a miniature replica of his daddy Rocket, so Bob renamed him Rerun. Rerun came in with his family last July. He was just recently gelded. He is a 3-year-old, paint miniature horse gelding. He is great around kids and very layed back. He is the smallest of our mini family and as cute as a button. His would be a great therapy mini for either the elderly, handicapped, etc. He is great around the other horses and would make a great companion horse for herd of horses or the people herd

His adoption fee is $500. Please contact us for more information. 352-596-3104.

970151_615833268427678_75221798_n[1]

Horse (mini) #2 Meet Rocket: Rocket is a 10-year-old, sorrel, paint miniature horse gelding. He too came in with Goldie and his 2 kids, Rerun and Ginger last summer. Rocket has been trained to pull a cart, but is green and needs someone to put time in working with him further. He does very well with the other minis and horses. Rocket will make a great companion horse for his new four-legged and 2-legged family. He is a very beautiful boy with very distinct personality. Please REPOST AND SHARE and help us find this beautiful boy a new family to call his own. His adoption fee is $500.

Contact us for more information at 352-596-3104.

575926_615837031760635_1464928519_n

Horse (mini) #3 Meet Diamond: Diamond is a 10-year-old miniature horse stallion. Diamond came in at the end of last year, December, 2012. Diamond came in with Gypsy. Diamond had not been handled too much, but will now let you approach him and love all over him. Diamond was scheduled a few months back to be gelded when Dr. Sarah Quatman discovered that Diamond is a cryptorchid. A cryptorchid means that only one of his testicles have dropped and he must have surgery done at an equine medical facility to remove the other testicle that has not dropped. We started a fundraiser for this expensive procedure, but have only raised $200 so far. If anyone is interested in helping us fundraise to raise the remaining amount of funds, please contact us for more information at 352-596-3104.

Horse #4 Meet Southern Seventh Heaven (Seven) Seven came to us about 5 weeks ago. Initially, he was rescued by Cheyenne Mcbryan from a farm in Dade City. There were a few stallions on the property that were continually breeding with the mares and all of the horses were running feral on 75 acres. Cheyenne rescued Seven’s mother when Seven was just 1 week old. She brought this pair of horses to Elizabeth Maddox in Shady Hills, Florida and was refused to ever have this colt returned to her. Just a few weeks back we rescued Seven and 4 other horses from this farm in Shady Hills. Seven will reside here while he grows up, gets gelded, and then later trained to ride. Seven is a big boy already standing at 15hh at just 15 months of age. He is a Standardbred/Thoroughbred cross.

Horse #5 Meet Wildfire: Wildfire is an 11-month-old Mustang/QH cross. He came to us just a few weeks ago after our friends, Janice, referred us to someone who would come rescue this beautiful boy. He was never touched before coming here and Bob was able to get him loaded within 5 minutes after arrival. Wildfire had his first halter put on him just moments after Bob got him loaded in the trailer. Wildfire instantly bonded with Seven and the two of them are glued together at the hips, where one goes, the other is sure to follow. They are the cutest pair. Wildfire will let us pet him now and hopefully by next month he will let us groom him, but for now we will take baby steps with him.

Horse #6 Meet Ginger. Ginger is the daughter of Rocket & Goldie. She is a 5-year-old sorrel miniature horse mare with flaxen mane and tail. Ginger is sporting her beautiful fly mask to keep her face protected from the buggers. She has lots of spunk and loves to get all of the horses running and playing. She is so much fun to watch. She gets along great with the big horses, mares or geldings. She is great with the kids and will stand very nicely for them while she is being bathed and groomed. She will be a great addition to her new family, as she can fit into any sequence, GREAT with the horses, kids, and the elderly. Ginger is in search for her new family now for almost a year. Her adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in Ginger, please contact us for more information at 352-596-3104. PLEASE REPOST & SHARE!!!

Horse #7 Meet Gracie. Grace came in with her brother Abel in December 2012, at a level 2 emaciation on the Henneke scale. Grace & Abel came to us from a farm in Dade City where there were many other horses in need, but the owner would only relinquish Grace & Abel, as they were both in the worst condition. Both horses had never been touched, haltered, or had their feet done before arriving to the DERR. After their arrival, they stayed in the front area where we started their reefed, handling them, and grooming them daily. Very quickly Grace and Abel grew to love the attention. Gracie has grown into a very adorable “pocket pet” who will join up with you immediately when you enter the paddock to seek affection. She will even back up her beautiful apple butt right in front of you, so that you will rub her hind end for her. She has quite the personality and is just the sweetest horse you could ever meet. She is waiting in line to be trained by Dyan Rehg. After she is trained, she will be ready for her new family.

Horse #8 Meet Beauty. Beauty is an 11-year-old Thoroughbred mare. Beauty came to us about 2 months ago from Shady Hills, Florida. Beauty came in with a thick, winter coat that has finally shed itself off. After worming Beauty, she has now put on a significant amount of weight since her arrival and should be ready to be evaluated next month. She has split poor Paulie & Gracie apart because she too loves Gracie and wanted her all to herself.

Horse #9 Meet Velvet. Velvet is a 21-year-old Tennessee Walker. Velvet has been here since the fall of 2011. She has been Bob’s personal horse for quite some time and most recently has been out to the trails with many others who have come to visit. She has been adopted out to a very good home and will be going to her new family soon. We will always remember and miss her very much after she leaves, but happy that she will have her own family instead of living here at the rescue.

Horse #10 Meet Goldie: Goldie is an absolutely, beautiful, 13-year-old, sorrel miniature horse with a gorgeous flaxen mane and tail. Goldie has been here at the rescue since July 2012. She came in with her family, Rocket and her daughter Ginger and son Rerun. Goldie was trained to pull a cart at age 2. Goldie has joined us at all of our outside events since she arrived and pulls a cart for the kids. Goldie is very well mannered and gets along very well with the kids. She stands still while the kids bathe and groom her. She is a perfect little angel and an absolute joy to have here with us.

Horse #11 Meet Paulie: Paulie is a 27-month-old, paint Quarter Horse gelding. Paulie came in to the rescue in February 2012. He was part of the herd of 6 horses that we brought in from Plant City. He came in nursing on his mom, Sadie, and his daddy, Spirit. Paulie and his sister, Pinkie, had never been touched before their arrival to the rescue. Bob and his brother-in-law spent 3 hours to load both Pinkie and Paulie to bring them back here to the rescue. At that point (1-year of age) they had never been touched, halter broke, hooves trimmed, etc. After handling them both consistently, they very quickly were tamed to human touch. He was adopted out for a very short time consisting of just 2-3 months. After a breakup with his family, we were called to go get him. He arrived back here with a huge bite mark on his side from the Arabian mare that he was with. Since Paulie arrived back here at the rescue at the end of the summer 2012, he has been gelded and trained to be green broke by Dyan Rehg. Paulie is one of the best, well-mannered horses that we have here at the rescue. After Dyan trained him from the ground up, Bob and I were the first ones to be in the saddle with Paulie and he carried us around like he had been doing this for a lifetime, displaying NO buck, kick, bite, or rear. With Dyan’s assistance, we are working with Paulie and he is making GREAT progress.

Horse #12 Meet Robyn: Robyn first came here at the end of spring in 2012. By Labor Day 2012, Robyn was up to her full weight and looking absolutely beautiful. We got a phone call and email from Stephanie Lynn who owner Eternal Freedom in the Panhandle of Florida. She explained to us that she was sending a transport down to Tampa Bay Downs to pick up a horse and that the transport was going to cost her $500 if she picked up 1 horse or 4 horses. She asked us if she could help relieve some overcrowding and take a few Thoroughbreds off our hands to help rehome them. We agreed and sent Stephanie Lynn 3 horses, Jack, Jill, and Robyn. By the beginning of January 2013, we found out that Stephanie Lynn was starving these horses and we set out to rescue them. On arrival at Eternal Freedom in February 2013, Robyn was found to be a level 1-2 emaciated state documented by our vet with severe rain rot jacketed over the complete covering of her body, including her ears with bright red and pink, fleshy sores across her body. This is Robyn today, just 3 months later with a significant amount of weight gain and new hair growth where sores previously blanketed her body. Stephanie Lynn has since been charged with 3 counts of animal abuse/neglect charges for Jack, Jill, and Robyn.

Horse #13 Meet Nugget: Nugget came here on January 20, 2013, with Bingo. The first time Dr. Dillard looked at him, he stated that he appeared to be 28-32. This was questioned, so I asked Dr. Dillard to check him again and he said that maybe he was 25+. Nugget came in with a very thick, winter coat and I and many other volunteers have taken it upon themselves to help groom Nugget when they have come to visit. He appeared to possibly have a bit more weight with the winter coat, but nothing hid the grooves of his ribs or the pelvic bones protruding. We have been trying for 4 months to put a visible amount of weight on Nugget and have just seen a noticeable difference here in the past 3 weeks. Nugget has finally shed out his winter coat into a beautiful, shiny coat. His ribs are just barely visible and he is showing veins and muscle tone in his chest, belly, and legs, which resembles positive weight gain. We have had a difficult time with Nugget’s weight gain, probably due to his breed and older age. We were told by a previous owner that they tried for a very long period of time to put weight on Nugget, but were unsuccessful. We are so thankful to see this major breakthrough with his weight gain. Nugget is a great big sweetheart and loved by everyone who comes to see him.

Horse #14 Meet Lady: She Is Are Lady is a 5-year-old OTTB. Lady came in to our rescue in January 2013. She was transported to us from Calder Race Track in Miami, Florida. Lady was scheduled to be euthanized because of a bone chip from a race track injury. Her owner did not want to give her the 90-day stall rest that she needed to recover. The owner’s vet contacted us just in time to save Lady from being euthanized. Lady has recovered from her injury and we are now toping off her weight. In a few more weeks Lady will be evaluated and started slowly on some short trail rides.

Horse #15 Meet Chatterbox: Chatterbox came to us from a farm up in Ocklawaha 2 months ago. We were heading that direction to pick up Chatterbox another mare and foal when the truck broke down less than 2 blocks away. The horses were in a large 5 acre paddock running free, as the owner had not contained them for pickup. After the truck broke down, we were offered a ride home with the horse trailer. We loaded Chatterbox, but left the mare and foal behind because the baby was running free and too scared to come close enough to load.

Chatterbox is approximately 10 years old. She came in emaciated and is now nearing a full recovery after just a few months. She still has some weight to fill in on her top line and rounding out to do on her buttocks, but she is filling in quite nicely. This mare came in without a name, but every time we would walk outside, she would whinny for us, so Bob named her Chatterbox. She too is like a pocket pet and will follow you to the ends of the earth if you’d let her. She is as sweet as can be.

Horse #16 Meet Starlyte: Bob got a call to pick up Starlyte. She was dropped off in someone’s pasture in the middle of the night, therefore, had no name or background history. Bob named her Starlyte since she was dropped off at twilight. Starlyte is estimated to be around 10-years old. She came in with an extremely thick, winter coat. She is still shedding, but her coat is thinning down and shinning up. She has been evaluated and even though she took the saddle well, she is not broke to ride. She too is waiting in line to see Dyan Rehg to be trained. Logan has picked her to be his special girl and the 2 of them spend every waking moment together.

Horse #17 Meet Logan: Logan is a 13-year-old OTTB gelding. Logan is In Search Of his new home. Logan is very well trained with no buck, bite, kick, or rear. He stands nice for the farrier, clips, bathes, and ties. He is very gentle and a ladie’s man around the other horses. He is very nice under saddle and would be great for an intermediate rider. We have taken him out to the trails and we have walked him carrying children. He is as sweet as the day is long. He will make someone a GREAT horse!!! Please contact us for more information at 352-596-3104.

Horse #18 Meet Miss Annie: Miss Annie is a BLM Mustang mare. Miss Annie was our first horse rescue back in February 2010. She had been abused, neglected, and starved by her previous owner. Annie was fearful of a lot of things upon arrival and her first year with us. She came in wit a deep gash across the bridge of her nose and was terrified of the water hose. Now we can bathe her, groom her, load her in a trailer, etc. She has absolutely perfect ground manners, except with the farrier, LOL, we are still working on that. She is an absolutely beautiful girl and would make a great companion horse to the right person.

Horse #19 (Last, but NOT Least) My Josie: My Josie is a 13-year-old Tennessee Walker mare. She came to the rescue back in October 2011. She has been a GREAT confidence builder for me and a great horse to walk children with and put beginners on to teach. Just recently we loaned her out for the week to go on the Cracker Ride and learned a very valuable lesson. My Josie suffered at the hands of her rider, literally, as she pulled heavy at the reins and cutting a groove in her tongue. Josie was shaking her head from discomfort and disciplined by her rider smacking her on top of the head. My Josie came home with a significant amount of weight loss after that ride showing her ribs, back bone, and pelvic bones. She also had a huge, open saddle sore on her left side that was bare with no hair and more sores on her buttocks and other side from where the saddle was rubbed into her skin. The first few times I rode her, she spooked on me continuously and bolted several times. When I questioned Sharyl Ranchhand about what had happened to my horse, she told me that she probably just needed to be desensitized. This floored me, as I have been taking My Josie on group rides and trail rides consisting of riding her along busy highways, trails through the woods, up and down inclines, past dogs, blazing trails, around deer, alligator, snakes, and bear, and My Josie NEVER spooked with me riding her. I just couldn’t figure out why suddenly I would now have to “desensitize her”

Anyway, My Josie has been on a long road of recovery and she is now more beautiful than ever. My Josie is absolutely amazing and gave my daughter her very first horse ride the other day. I am so proud of her, she is the best!!!

J. Grimes wrote this Ripoff Report against Ohana Rescue last week and since then Ohana and their followers are now accusing the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch for being the responsible party???

I was going to stay out of it and let the kids play their games, until Carrie crossed the line and went a step to far.

Below is one of the comments written on Ohana Rescue’s Ripoff Report

“Beverly Levitt sent me a comment on my blog on the Ripoff Report.  I didn’t accept it because it had nothing to do with the Ripoff Report or the point I was trying to get across. “
So you USE the ripoff report to make a point. whats that , nothing at all you say cna be believed.. works for me !! This is not out of context but abbreviated so not to waste any ones time with your trash. Grow up
NOW YOU GOT MY ATTENTION!!!

In regards to anonymous post above who quoted my words out of my blog:

“Beverly Levitt sent me a comment on my blog on the Ripoff Report. I didn’t accept it because it had nothing to do with the Ripoff Report or the point I was trying to get across. ”

I wrote a blog last week regarding this particular Ripoff Report written by J. Grimes. The significance of my blog was not so much to bring light to this particular Ripoff Report that J. Grimes wrote against Carrie Young and Ohana Rescue, but it was to clarify that Carrie Young with Ohana Rescue proved with the rebuttal that they wrote above that she was indeed responsible for writing a Ripoff report against our rescue, Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, last year on November 16, 2011. Carrie Young used her user name “horsesinneed” to compose the Ripoff report against us last year and then used the same user name “horsesinneed” to compose the rebuttal above.

https://dominoeffectexaminer.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/we-seen-this-with-our-own-two-eyes-no-rumor-here/

In my blog I was comparing the 2 Ripoff reports, I clarified how Carrie Young with Ohana Rescue has been trying to sabotage the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch since August 2011. Everything that is stated in this blog is factual with documentation to prove this.

https://dominoeffectexaminer.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/we-seen-this-with-our-own-two-eyes-no-rumor-here/

After I wrote this blog, Beverly Levitt wrote a quite extensive response to my blog “WE SEEN THIS WITH OUR OWN TWO EYES, no rumor here…(Quotes by Carrie Young)” Her response had nothing to do with this particular blog “WE SEEN THIS WITH OUR OWN TWO EYES, no rumor here…(Quotes by Carrie Young)”, so I did NOT accept her response, but I therefore wrote another blog regarding Beverly Levitt’s response to the previous blog “WE SEEN THIS WITH OUR OWN TWO EYES, no rumor here…(Quotes by Carrie Young)”

In the blog “Reunion of the Heart Scorned by Thrashing Waves of Fury” My first paragraph was as follows:

“Reunion of the Heart Scorned by Thrashing Waves of Fury
July 24, 2012 by Domino Effect Examiner

“Beverly Levitt sent me a comment on my blog on the Ripoff Report. I didn’t accept it because it had nothing to do with the Ripoff Report or the point I was trying to get across. ”

For those who do not understand plain English, this means Beverly Levitt sent me a comment on my blog about the Ripoff Report that I wrote comparing the 2 Ripoffs, the one that Carrie Young (horsesinneed) wrote against the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch and the rebuttal that Carrie Young (horsesinneed) wrote in this Ripoff Report against Ohana written by J. Grimes.

This is the blog I wrote below:

https://dominoeffectexaminer.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/we-seen-this-with-our-own-two-eyes-no-rumor-here/

I was simply explaining that Beverly Levitt’s response had NOTHING to do with the above blog regarding the 2 Ripoff Reports, ONE that Carrie Young of Ohana Rescue wrote against the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch and the SECOND one that Carrie Young wrote a rebuttal to, both with the same sign on name “horsesinneed’

My statement

“Beverly Levitt sent me a comment on my blog on the Ripoff Report. I didn’t accept it because it had nothing to do with the Ripoff Report or the point I was trying to get across. ” was referring to this particular blog and nothing else!!! It simply was not the appropriate spot to accept Beverly Levitt’s comment.

https://dominoeffectexaminer.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/we-seen-this-with-our-own-two-eyes-no-rumor-here/

I have been watching this unfold this past week, day after day, someone else jumping on the bandwagon to pass on hatred comments towards our rescue or whomever they think composed this Ripoff Report. I have been receiving hate e-mails from this group, seen posts here against us, and had people come to our page to attack us.

I have seen in several different spots, including here and throughout Facebook, that Ohana and their followers are accusing us for this Ripoff Report. Do you really think that Domino Effect Rescue Ranch is the only enemy that Ohana has???

Annonymous post: Unbelievable

“This is a vendetta being pursued against Ohana Rescue by another, so called rescue of questionable ethics, run by a convicted felon with no training, which is clearly shown in their pics on their FB page. This person, along with another, equally unbalanced person, is waging this war.”

Jennifer Facer Brown

“Why do rescues do this stuff? Pick on each other? This all so wrong. And it gives rescues a really bad name. And rescues, all of them will pay for this, by losing donations. people will not donate to drama. Ohana is one rescue I have known, and have for a long while. The negative reports are just that, and nothing more. They work very hard, as you probably do as well. This is wrong on so many levels, and only hurts the cause and the horses. Ohana through this situation, has not been as concerned about what you say, as they are about what folks read, and how that will effect the horses currently in dire need at their facility..So why cant you be that concerned, as well?”

diana628

Ya’ll need to knock it off. Rescues bashing rescues just doesn’t work. From where I stand it looks like Domino started this round with their unfair Ohana bashing. I say unfair, because I know some of the work Ohana has done with horses others couldn’t take, and I know the kind of help and advice they share freely FOR THE SAKE OF THE HORSES. Ripoff Report is a ripoff in it self. You should be ashamed to use it. They take claims from anyone and charge over $2000 to take false claims off the site. Domino you best hope you aren’t the next one reported to Ripoff.

Ohana Rescue, is one of the good rescues and Dominos “Rescue” is one of the bad.

Another Ohana Follower: Lee Buckley Ellis

I didn’t see that I was insulting you! Only asking a question or two. I see you have nothing nice to say to a curious new comer? That’s a shame! You are a true F*CKTARD! Really you are! Stop abusing and neglecting horses and Gods creatures! Stop blaming everyone else because you are too damn stupid to give a sh*. Grow the hell up and own up to the responsibilities that you have brought onto your property. Oh and another thing….you idiot….Feeding a horse hay off the ground will cause them to colic. You are the reason the one died! You are so dumb! You think they are not eating dirt along with that hay? DUMB*SS!

Your instincts are sh*….look at the pictures of how you are treating the animals! Oh and googling your name was HORRIFYING. You call yourself a “rescue” and I call you a pile of shit.

And then I see this today written by Ohana Rescue on her FB page:

Ohana Rescue “I am sure that is the name that they used..but they made a mistake on their blog, she admitted to writing the rip off..I will tell you more later, have to run…check out what is going on now…see the above picture, Kelly Blevins and Domino seem to think this is me, and that is more prove of slander because DE has met me, so they are letting Kelly run with this.”

After seeing this, curiosity brought me back to this page to indeed see another post against the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, but this time specifically referring that we are responsible for their Ripoff Report.

Domino Effect Rescue Ranch Robert & Dinelle Ashcraft This is a fake rescue that asks for donations to help the animals in their care and they do not use the donations for the animals. Weeki Wachee, Florida

Domino Effect Rescue Ranch is owned by a Robert and Dinelle Ashcraft. They portray being Christians who care about animals. They find free animals on Craig’s List and then state that the animals are rescues and plea to the good hearted people to donate. These funds are not going to the animals because: The horses are eating the bark off the trees, the leaves off the palmetto bushes, and they are given cow hay to eat. Only getting fed once a day when they are fed, and only when people are coming out. Their feet are not seen by a farrier, and the horses have no vet care. They adopt out the horses at ridiculous prices, and without coggins. They preach that they are Christians and they talk a great talk, but if people would go out and see just how the horses are living. The number of horses at this time are 13 and they are living on less then two acres of sand. They are tied to barb wire to eat. They are chased by a pit bull all day long. The legs of the horses are constantly being cut by stumps in their yard. Please do not give a horse to Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, please look for another reputable rescue to rehome your horse too. They have been the cause of many horses being injured, and several deaths of horses due to their negligence. BEWARE, THEY TALK THE TALK, BUT CANNOT WALK THE WALK.

Just be wary of her. Dylan Spin: horse trader Samantha Lynne??????? unsure!

CARRIE YOUNG HAS BEEN THE MASTERMIND BEHIND TRYING TO SABOTAGE THE DOMINO EFFECT RESCUE RANCH SINCE AUGUST 2011.

IS THIS APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR FOR ONE RESCUE TO TREAT ANOTHER???

WARNING TO ALL RESCUES* YOU COULD BE NEXT ~ IF WE DON’T PUT A STOP TO THIS!!!

Carrie Young States “Things don’t just come your way and happen, you make them happen.”

How many times has Ohana claimed that “everyone” is out to get her and “everyone” is falsely accusing them for attacking others. How many times has Ohana protrayed themselves to be the INNOCENT PARTY…….Just sayin.

In the future, don’t publicize information if you don’t want recognized for doing this, because if you’re posting negatively against the Domino Effect, you may be seeking all the attention you desire. I’m not into the kid games. I don’t bash others in the privacy of my home hinding behind a screen name. I speak the truth and I post my documentation regarding what others have posted against the ranch. I am not seeking to hurt other rescues or other people, but to defend our name with the truth. You will never see me post an “anonymous” article without leaving my name. If you can’t leave your John Hancock, then you have no business posting it.

I DID NOT write this Ripoff Report above, but I tip my hat to the one who did, as it revealed the “anonymous” writer to our Ripoff report out of the wood pile, noneother than Carrie Young, herself, horsesinneed. This Ripoff Report above is not how I write and I don’t write things without documentation. I am not afraid to admit when we have done wrong and I am not afraid to confront my accusers. I do NOT hide behind an anonymous name and everything I write I sign my name to it. Just because I have an enormous amount of evidence against Ohana Rescue for trying to sabotage us, doesn’t mean that I am the only one out there that doesn’t care for them. If you have proof that I would deliberately post the above stated garbage, then let see it. Otherwise, you all are barking up the wrong tree because the only one who is responsible for such acts against another rescue is yours truly, Ohana Rescue.

One Rescue SABOTAGING another Rescue

*WARNING TO ALL RESCUES* 

YOU COULD BE NEXT ~ IF WE DON’T PUT A STOP TO THIS!!!

For any of you who needed proof that Ohana is responsible for trying to SABOTAGE our rescue, HERE IT IS!!! 

Last weekend one of our Facebook friends came to us and told us that Ohana had been on the news for rescuing a horse from a rescue that was burned up in flames down in Pasco County.  Sunday morning we were also notified that someone in Pasco County did a Ripoff Report on Ohana on Saturday, July 21, 2012, just after they were seen on the news.   The author to the Ripoff report is someone in Pasco County, which is where Ohana Rescue originated from in Hudson, Florida.   Judging by the information in the Ripoff Report it must be someone who has been their follower for quite sometime who must not have liked seeing Ohana’s recognition in the media. 

We googled Ohana Rescue and found the Ripoff Report and read it.

Ohana Horse Rescue 501c3 non profit Carrie Young / Allen Wilson Fake Rescue / Fake Christians / Lie To Receive Donations / Lie About Adoptive Horses / Adopt To Minors / Lie About Equine Medical Conditions Brooksville, Florida

Ohana Rescue receives donations for horses and then puts the horses down and/or uses the money for other services that the donations were not solicited for. They refuse horses unless they have an extreme story that will bring in donations. They have been seen breeding Isabelle to a stallion claiming that it will help the mares skin condition. They adopt horses to families claiming they are sound to ride and really are out-of-control. They have adopted a horse to minors causing injuries to one of the minors. They are always attacking other rescue facilities trying to alleviate competition as stated by Carrie Young. Carrie Young has been noted for stating that her State Representative Uncle keeps her skeeky clean with the authorities. Carrie young has been reported as turning individuals into the authorities that call her for assistance with their animals. This rescue organization uses equine to beg money from the public and operates as a heartless business rather than a loving community service. They recently brought in thousands of dollars of individuals hard-earned money for a horse with a cracked skull from out-of-state and then immediately put the horse down. No offer of or return of the received donations. As an advocate for the horses it is my duty to warn the public when I am informed of individuals claiming to be a community service, that undermine true rescue organizations, and scam the public.

Domino Effect Rescue Ranch Robert & Dinelle Ashcraft This is a fake rescue that asks for donations to help the animals in their care and they do not use the donations for the animals. Weeki Wachee, Florida

Domino Effect Rescue Ranch is owned by a Robert and Dinelle Ashcraft. They portray being Christians who care about animals. They find free animals on Craig’s List and then state that the animals are rescues and plea to the good-hearted people to donate. These funds are not going to the animals because: The horses are eating the bark off the trees, the leaves off the palmetto bushes, and they are given cow hay to eat. Only getting fed once a day when they are fed, and only when people are coming out. Their feet are not seen by a farrier, and the horses have no vet care. They adopt out the horses at ridiculous prices, and without coggins. They preach that they are Christians and they talk a great talk, but if people would go out and see just how the horses are living. The number of horses at this time are 13 and they are living on less then two acres of sand. They are tied to barb wire to eat. They are chased by a pit bull all day long. The legs of the horses are constantly being cut by stumps in their yard. Please do not give a horse to Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, please look for another reputable rescue to rehome your horse too. They have been the cause of many horses being injured, and several deaths of horses due to their negligence. BEWARE, THEY TALK THE TALK, BUT CANNOT WALK THE WALK.

Of course, amongst everything that was coming against us with this group of people attacking us, I did write a rebuttal on our behalf.

SUBMITTED: Sunday, January 22, 2012

The Domino Effect Rescue Ranch has been falsely accused by certain individuals in order for them to serve a vengeance against us. There are no proven allegations against the ranch, but their hearsay to persuade the public to believe their lies with their motives stemming from pure hatred.

Please check out our video in which we just posted on You Tube presenting to the public the progress we made in 2011:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhGR-uLwFiE&feature=youtu.be

Furthermore, please join us on Facebook at the “Domino Effect” to see our daily progress here at the ranch:  https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000030326601

Unlike other rescues, We provide a service here on Facebook for those who have surrendered their animals to the ranch, those who visit the ranch, and those who adopt the animals from us to join together to share in the progress with pictures and updates of the animals we take in, the time we share with them, and continue to give updates after they are adopted out. We provide this to the community, so that people can follow their loved animals and see the great homes they are placed in and the animals second chance in a new family.

We are open to the public and hope for you to comes see us here in Weeki Wachee area, expected or unexpected, as we are always open for visitors.

With many visitors who come to the ranch weekly, over 2,200 people who view our Facebook, over 200 whom have viewed our video of 2011, no proven allegations from the Department of agriculture or Animal Control, I’d say these allegations are proven to be false. As they say “The proof is in the puddin” Check us out, as we are truly the real deal and put countless hours into our rescue and spend many days serving the public, as they come to interact with the animals. We love what we do and it shows. It’s not about the monetary value, as we know that God provides and will keep our facility standing strong.

The Domino Effect Rescue Ranch is a Christ-Centered facility with a mission to first rescue, rehabilitate, and find “forever homes” for the animals that are taken in to our care. Secondly, our mission is to give back to the community by educating and entertaining through interacting the animals with the community as a public service. This not only serves as a therapeutic tool to the public, but also helps to rehabilitate, humanize, exercise, train, and evaluate the animals, so that we can better place them in more suitable homes that will best fit their needs.

As people from all walks of life meet us and interact with the rescued animals, they are learning a great respect for the work we do, bonding with these animals, and being a part of the “Domino Effect.”

Their connection makes a difference in these animals’ lives and ultimately in their own. As people join in on our daily activities and events, they are better able to see the needs here at the ranch.

The events and activities may vary from year to year, but the ultimate goal is to provide for the rescued animals and give them the best quality of life while they are in our care and place them in the best home suitable for their needs. While interacting these animals with the public, we are giving them a good quality of life, as well as therapeutic to everyone who joins us in our mission to be a part of the “Domino Effect.”

Join us on FB @ Domino Effect:

Second Opinion

AUTHOR: horsesinneed – port richey (United States of America)

SUBMITTED: Monday, July 23, 2012

I would like to thank those that have defended Ohana in the course of all this. I had refused to rebut until it was suggested by a professional.

Lets start with me calling the authorities about a horse that Ohana was called on to rescue. This horse was so far emaciated that it would not have made the trip. The woman waited to long for the call for help. Yes, I did call the authorities. Our trailer would not have made the trip down the dirt road that was filled with ruts safely with a horse that couldnt even stand. Guilty…and thank you, because we know where this came from.

No, there is NO breeding here. It was mentioned that a pregnant mare’s hormones changed while pregnant and it could help a horse with skin problems, but it was never done. We are a rescue and we try to stop the over breeding. We geld all the stallions that come here. All are separated into their own paddocks until gelding is done. Again, we know where this came from..thank you..:)

??? Rehoming to a minor, and one that got hurt? Everyone that comes to Ohana signs a release form, and if they are underage, their parents have to sign it… we would never rehome to a minor, that would make the contract null and void, so not sure where this one came from..

Asking donations then putting a horse down??? They do not have their info straight. The horse that had the serious brain injury was brought to us from a Florida Show Barn, which we will not speak the name. We did everything we could for her, and all reports have been posted. Ohana has an open door policy and we have unexpected visitors all the time. We have nothing to hide.

The report states info about my family, big mistake, because they insinuated that he protects family by covering with his authority…oops, real big mistake…and what was said was..BECAUSE I GREW UP WITH A CONGRESSMAN AS AN UNCLE, THAT TENDS TO KEEP A PERSON SQUEAKY CLEAN, you know, protecting your name.. Competition, you have got to be kidding me..we have our hands full..please please more decent rescues open..the horses need more safe havens.

Ohana does take in the hard to place horses, the injured and the starved. We might get in a horse that is healthy once in a blue moon. We have horses here that have been with us for years. As far as EXTREME story….every horse that ends up in a rescue has a story..every horse. We do not scan Craigs List looking for free horses as others do, that can be flipped over for a profit a few days later…we receive calls and emails on a daily basis. If the horse isnt in real bad shape, we will try and help find that horse a home. If it is an emergency then we will make room here. We do not need any more horses here, but when a call comes in we will do our best to help. We are not in this for profit, there is no profit. We do not take in horses, and then turn around and adopt them out for monies. The last two horses that were rehomed, had no adoption fee…this report is just another way to try and bring Ohana down. Which hasnt worked..if we cannot take in the hard to place horses, and the horses that are in need of medical help, it is the horses that suffer. So this report attacks horses, not Ohana.

Everyone deserves to write a rebuttal in their defense, I totally agree.  ……But there is something VERY significant about this piece that was pointed out to me that I want you to see.

If you go back to the top of the page where someone wrote a Ripoff Report against the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, you will see the author for this report:

People who love and rescue horses do it for the good of the horse… each has their own way of doing it.. Much like the way we raise our children…. We will not please everyone with our decisions on how we do it… It is not our right to judge how its done…. the end result speaks for itself happy re-homed horses.. Not all make it not all are successful but in the end we all have learned!

Kammey Schultz This is a sad but great ending to a horse that I adopted when I got him he was nothing but skin and bones I was told he was 5 found out he was 2 When I called the rescue whome had never done a home check or anything because he was never trained and I was having all sorts of health and training issues with him they told me to sell him that they wouldn’t take him back very scary i now but very true. I have him still he is healthy and doing great here with me I would be lost without him but this could be the same situation

Rennie Taft There will never be a “standard” of care among horsepeople. YOu get everything from the worst to the best, just like with people in the world. All anyone can do is to keep your eyes open, have a camera ready document it if there is any abuse, and charge them legally…Othere than bitch about it, which does absolutely no good and does not help the animals. IF you see abuse report, it document it. get it out …make them own up.

Debbie Sharp you can make all the stink you want, call ALL the authorities, involve PETA and even state agency and still not get results….been there, done that just like alot of others who care…counties claim no money and they have to follow procedure which takes forever while the horse is starving, in pain or ready to literally die. Sometimes sharing on fb, “bitching” about it helps to find someone who DOES have a spot for a horse or is ready to take on the monumental task and expense of bringing one back from the brink of starvation. I have also seen instances where posting will bring witnesses forward with info that helps prosecute these degenerate, low life, scumbags

rehomes 72 horses in 90 days? What is happening to these horses?

 

Nikki Tobin he told me they all go out on adoption contracts….does he have these? the information on where the horses are now? recent pics? did he do a home check? i highly doubt he checked 72 homes in 90 days for all the animals he adopted out.they also have several cats that are unfixed and more than liekly breeding with each other i personally saw two pics male and female in the same pen breeding im assuming so he can sell the babies

Tracie Huff I was thinking along that line. ANYONE can claim they’ve re-homed 72 horses in 90 days, but to actually prove that is another story. AND…to prove they went to good, loving home where they will be cared for properly. I’ve watched a dear friend of mine care for three Haffies, and a mule. It’s a lot of work. Between the feeding, grooming, floating, shoeing, and exercising….it’s not a relationship that is for everyone. So it makes me wonder a bit, at who these 72 horses went to if there even were 72 to begin with.

Debbie Sharp Carrie, I am in Fla. too and the economy is no better here than anywhere else. You know as well as I do that if someone could rehome that many horses, they would be lining the farms from you to me in St. Augustine. No one is paying for shipping out of state to “adopt” a horse that could be found close to home EXCEPT the rescues who are saving them from slaughter/kb. There is NO WAY he found homes for that many rescues!!! And the fact that they have to starve, on their journey to hell, when this lowlife is gonna make money on them, makes me want to clamp battery cables to his b**ls, hang him in the tree the horses were eating, and switch the power on every 15 mins for the rest of his disgusting life……….oops, glad it is so late, don’t want the kids asking what that means 🙂

AND NOW WE ARE BEING STALKED BY OUR NEIGHBORS DAY AND NIGHT WHO HAVE JOINED OHANA’S MISSION AGAINST US.

Last night our neighbor, Tom Logsdon left in a hurry and returned with a van following him back into his property next door to us. The van left an hour or so later going really slow past our property and stopping on the East corner of our fence line and let Tom Logsdon out to walk on foot slowly back past our place.

Early this morning at 7:00 a.m. this vehicle was found to be sitting next to our fence line, as who ever was attending this vehicle was stalking our property.

 

Later this morning Tom Logsdon was seen standing at our fence with his back turned the other way, as if he was up to something. He knows he does not have our permission to touch the horses, but clearly does as he pleases anyway.

 

Early Afternoon, Tom Logsdon and Kathleen Walton spent the day camped out on the porch glaring at Bob all morning and afternoon while he worked with the horses.

He was also seen lounging next to the corner fence line in a camping chair with binoculars watching our place and watching Bob.

Next thing you know they called the police department out to complain that we were guilty of taking pictures of them while they were spying, harassing, and stalking my husband all night and all day long minding our business instead of their own.

There were no charges placed on us for documenting their harassment and stocking against us.

ARE THESE PEOPLE CRAZY???  They are accusing us of adopting 72 horses out in the past 2 months.  They are accusing us of stealing horses and selling them to kill buyers or sending them to slaughter.  These people are stating that we conduct our business in the middle of the night when everyone is sleeping.  And to top it off, there are 150 comments above of people who actually believe this garbage!!!  Where is your common sense people???  We have adopted out over 100 ANIMALS in the past 2 months, not HORSES!!!  We have adopted out chickens, baby chicks, goats, a cow, pigs, piglets, donkeys, rabbits, ducks, birds, kittens, miniature horses, and horses.  Every animal has been documented on my page when it has left this ranch.  Every animal that has been brought in and gone out is accounted for.  These people are calling numerous agencies and fabricating stories to have them seize our horses and shut our doors.  We have been very successful for finding good homes for these animals and I guess have bothered a few people along the way.  This is unbelievably sad that people are going to extremes to hurt us and hurt these animals!!!  We don’t even feel safe in our own home with these attacks against us.  How dare people be so cruel!!!

Nikki Tobin  since you like the “truth” so much heres some for you….

you claim to be christain yet you lie to everyone around you, you hurt others, you hurt animals
you use the horses to make money not to rescue them, they are a source of income for you thats all
you are no better than the people who sell horses to slaughter.Im sick of it! your lies, your deciet, any time someone confronts you
with the truth you delete them and block them and hide behind your fake christain personas, you and bob are horrible excuses for human beings
why dont you just stop abusing the horses and just get out of town,or whatever idc but the abuse needs to stop and its going to one way
or another

HERE ARE THE ANIMALS THE 2 TIMES SHE CAME OUT TO THE RANCH

There were NO animals in need of medical care or that appear to be abused, starved, or neglected. 

Nikki States

Wow Domino Effect I’m shocked.. Why are you spending your money from adoption fees on YOUR PERSONAL BILLS AND A CHRISTIMAS PARTY?? After just complaining you were broke and close to shutting down, now this….

We were able to bring in enough money this weekend to get some groceries, stock up on feed, send money towards bills we were behind on, and take care of further vet expenses here within the week.

And because we had this AWESOME breakthrough to place us back on our feet, we will be having our Domino Effect Christmas Party as planned on Saturday, December 10, 2011, starting at 4:00 in the afternoon until 8:00 in the evening. Everyone is asked to bring a dish for all to share. The children will be given horsey rides around the Christmas tree that will be centered in the yard with Christmas lights to light the way.

Get your priortiy’s straight this is wrong, get a job and stop making those poor animals feed you rather then the money going to feeding
them
Some things folks should know they personally posted they had no money to care for their animals yet they continue
to “rescue” them.They do not give the horses proper care and they injure horses as well
they used to have a public FB page but apparently they cant show what they do to the public anymore WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE DOMINO?

POSTED BY DOMINO EFFECT
“Due to the inability to adopt out horses and lower our feed expenses, we have maxed out our financial capabilities. We are still fighting to stay above water, but we have too many unpaid debts to continue for too much longer. We have been shut off to advertising to the public, as we fight constantly to keep our ads active before they are deleted. With the negative publicity and constant attacks, we have been backed into a corner. We are praying for a miracle to bring us out of this financial bind before it is too late. Please repost any adoption ads that you may see come through the feed to help us move these animals. If anyone can help with feed, hay, or other animal supplies, we could use your help until we are able to downsize and start adopting out animals once again. Please keep us in your prayers, as we are looking to God for discernment on the right decisions to make regarding the rescue and its future.”
They both have criminal records and the woman has child abuse charges on her record

http://www.examiner.com/animal-welfare-in-tampa-bay/florida-horse-community-outraged-by-alleged-abuse-at-domino-effect-rescue-ranchhere are other articles as well these people are uneduacated and should not be around horses or any animals for that matter

if anyone wants more info feel free to email me,im not hiding like domino is……

you are obviously unable to care for you animals properly so why not give them up to
real rescues who can save them before they start dropping dead in your yard….if you truly cared for them
you would do this for them instead of starving them and wanting to get money for them…give them to people who
can actually save them…please,please,please stop hurting them,give them up save their lives or you will be the abuser
instead of the rescuer you claim to be……i beg you stop hurting the horses and get them to places that can help and afford to feed them
and give them proper care otherwise their deaths will be on your hands

im not hiding like you are domino i have my email unhidden so people can know the truth
if they ask im going to tell them…..grow up and face the truth and stop lying and avioding what everyone else but you can see!!

Nikki Tobin this also has nothing to do with bob and dinelle,its about the care of the animals which they arent providing for them…for you or anyone else to try and turn the light away from the truth by slandering my name and posting lies about me shows that you all have something to hide…i was out to the ranch 3 times and every time i saw horses without their hooves trimmed,horses without food,horses that clearly needed medical care and had not recieved any….this had nothing to do with anyone getting their way it has to to with whats right and wrong and what DE is doing to those horses is wrong! if you have anymore isssues feel free to PM me as i have nothing to hide and everything on my page is still public unlike some people who are hiding from the truth and have since changed their status to private.my mother knows more about horses and their care than you ever will! and she offered advice and i offered advice and help and it was ignored so now steps must be taken to ensure the horses get the REAL help they need

She claims she had been here 3 times, but yet she has only been here twice, 2 Saturdays in a row.  She claims the horses have no food either time she came out.  But yet behind her is a HUGE roll of hay, it could have rolled right over her, had she not been looking, LOL!!!

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.294821620528846.81451.100000030326601&type=3

The second weekend she and her mother, Maryann Tobin, came out, there was still plenty of evidence of food for the horses.

And it is clearly evident that Bob accepted the assistance of Maryann Tobin, as you can see in the picture that Maryann Tobin and Bob were going through a box of bits that we had received as a donation from a FB friend and were also going through the saddles, saddle pads, bits, etc. matching up the proper, best-fitting set with each horse according to their size and needs.  We were very open to their help, just not their criticism, there is a HUGE difference between the two.

It’s amazing the lies that have been put out there by these 2 ladies and their circle of friends, but yet the evidence clearly shows their deceit towards the public, as their claims are proven to be lies.  Where does this leave someone’s credibility when everything they claim to be truth has been proven to be lies? 

Someone once said “I don’t have to prove I’m telling the truth, you have to prove I’m lying”

THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

Below are two letters that were sent to the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch, 1 to the Domino Effect Facebook account and the other to our e-mail account.  Both of the letters came to us, one from Nikki Tobin on March 23, 2012, and the other from her mother, Maryann Tobin, on March 28, 2012, just 5 days later.  Both of these ladies have been harassing and slandering our organization for months, along with posing threats towards us.

Letter from Nikki Tobin to the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch

  • Domino Effect

I am sick to my stomach everytime I see that someone was stupid enough to give you a horse , I cry for that animal because I know the hell it is going to be forced to go through before some poor sap is suckered into buying it from you and I say buy not adopt because you don’t care who gets your animals, youre just in it for the almighty dollar, you don’t care about the animals you use them to pay your personal bils. I hate that I have to see the abuse that goes on daily at your place and knowing I cant do something emmediately about it literlly breaks my heart into pieces , I have seen photos of horse detioriorating in your care, horses without medical attention , horses without their feet done , if not for the sudden light being shed on you and your husband would you have made any changes at all? Or just kept going the way you have been , This is not a personal vendetta it is about saving th animals from you, I don’t care about your past , I care about what you are doing now and its wrong , how you can continue to lie to people and feel like its ok its beyond me, more and more people are finding out the truth about you and it will all end soon, what you are doing is causing an uproar in the equine community and it will not be ignored ! You cannot continue to lie to people, threaten good homes with taking the horses back because you cant find anymore free ones to pick up and sell, you cannot continue to “foster” out the horses that need medical attention because you cant afford it, if you want to be a true rescue then do it right, plan ahead and have the money to care for the horses don’t rely on others to do it for you. What you do is not rescue it is horse trading plain and simple, once you admit that’s what you are things will be easier . Please stop hurting the animals for your own selfish reasons and only take in what you can afford or have room for , it doesn’t matter how many pens you build what you are doing is building a prison for the horses, it only takes two weeks for a thin horses to start showing weight gain when fed properly I have seen horses lose weight at your place so I know you are not feeding them what they should be getting , im just at a loss and in so much hearteache over all of this I just want to cry for every horse that goes without food , that’s mouth in is agony as it tries to eat what messly ammounts you feed but its teeth are in just such poor condition it hurts to much to eat or what they do it gets packed into their cheeks making bloddy sores in their mouths, for every horse that has to walk on split cracked, feet or is ridden with dry, cracked feet, for every horse ridden with ill fitting painful tack constantly getting their mouths yanked on by the ignorant, ineexperianced riders you let on them . Please in the name of the horses do thing right or stop what you are doing and give up the horses and just live normal lives like everyone else.

P.S. I would love to run a series of articles singing your praises if you decide to play by the rules and go commercial. It’s a great human interest topic. There is no vendetta, just want you to play fair.

A message to Domino Effect ranch in Florida

There is an easy way to end the Domino Effect scandal, if only the Ashcraft’s would do it.

There is something fundamental about the Domino Effect ranch scandal that is being missed and really needs to be pointed out. The Domino Effect ranch cannot legally operate as a non-profit business with two convicted felons at the helm. It’s just that simple.

I don’t think anyone, including Maryann Tobin, wants to stop the Ashcraft’s from earning a living – and the only vendetta going on is the one the Ashcraft’s have created.

If the Ashcraft’s want to operate as a commercial horse stable there would few issues that could not be easily addressed without all the “drama.”

So if the Ashcraft’s really want all this “drama” to go away all they have to do is stop trying to operate as a rescue and start operating as a commercial horse operation — and bingo – it all goes away overnight!!!

Getting around the rules and calling in favors is not the right way for a Christian to operate, or anyone else for that matter.

Part of proving yourself in this world includes accepting your personal limitations. Domino Effect ranch is a perfect example of where that theory went wrong.

There is no vendetta by Maryann Tobin against Domino Effect or the Ashcraft’s, just an effort to call a spade a spade.

Domino Effect ranch does not have the facility or resources to run as a genuine rescue. They need to accept that and move on.

Anyone who has ever done serious horse rescue and rehabilitation knows that it is an expensive proposition. It can take thousands of dollars and many months or years to rehabilitate a single horse, if it is in bad enough condition.

There are a lot of people involved in the Domino Effect ranch scandal and they would all be happier if the Ashcraft’s would just stop trying to get around the rules and just run as a commercial stable.

It’s an easy solution…..The question is…. do the Ashcraft’s have too much pride and anger in them to admit that they made a mistake and just start over?

After the incident of Maggie’s injury, I documented the event that took place on FB in a note, as well as on the internet.  I had been circulating the truth about Maggie through my FB page and months later notice that the site I posted it on in “All Voices” did not copy the full post.  I didn’t want to rehash this at the time, as I had figured that many were already set in their ways with the misleading tales that had been told regarding the events that took place this day.  I do now, however, want my original post that I wrote in an note on FB to be public for anyone out there searching for the truth and willing to hear our side in this matter.  It was an unfortanate accident and we were very upset that this had taken place.  We shared our condolence with Maggie’s owner and we were very glad to hear of her recovery.

THIS BELOW IS THE ORIGINAL POST ON NOVEMBER 10, 2011, “The Truth About Maggie”

http://www.facebook.com/extremefaith1/posts/222175314559839?notif_t=like#!/note.php?note_id=284334954931686

Bob took pictures this day as well.  I had them saved on a computer that crashed in late November and lost them.  He may still have them on a camera card, but unsure at this time.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MAGGIE

Bob went to rescue this horse, Maggie, from Clearwater back in the early part of October. The horse was very high-spirited and fearful of the trailer. Bob tried several different ways to load her before telling the lady that the horse was not going to load. The lady insisted that her 2 sons could get the horse to load if he would just give them the chance. Several times the boys let the horse get away and had to continue chasing her down. The oldest son said “why don’t we cover her eyes, so that she doesn’t see the trailer?” Bob asked the lady if the horse had ever loaded before. She stated that only once had the horse been loaded on the trailer and her boys were the ones to help get her to load. Bob stated that he had a feed bag on the front of the horse trailer. Bob stated to her older son that they had to maintain control of the horse if her eyes are being covered. The lady’s son stated that he had a hold of the horse if Bob could cover her eyes. As soon as Bob covered her eyes, Maggie jerked and the boy let go of the lead. Maggie then bolted off hitting a trailer, went around the edge of a pond, and then took out a chain link fence ripping a gaping wound in her chest and other abrasions on her as well. Bob was sickened by having to witness such an ordeal. Bob started to dial for a vet, but the lady had already called and was talking to one. Bob went to the truck and retrieved his camera and began taking pictures of Maggie. He was waiting for the vet to arrive when the property owner showed up being loud, rood, and belligerent. Bob went and spoke with the lady about the property owner’s rudeness and expressed that he would like to wait for the vet. The lady told Bob that the property owner is a hothead and likes to blow off steam a lot. “It was not your fault Bob, you did everything possible to try to keep her safe while loading. It was not your fault.” She said “I have property renter’s insurance that will pay for the damage and Maggie’s care, that is why I carry the insurance.” She told Bob that he could go ahead and go and she would take care of the situation.

When Bob arrived home to tell me the horror of what had happened and show me the pictures, he was in distraught over the incident, as the horse was out of control with no one to stop the series of events that took place. He spoke with the lady that evening after arriving home and she told Bob how the vet visit had gone and still reassured him that this was not his fault. The next morning Bob got a text message from the property owner stating that he was at fault and how did we wish to proceed. So you see from the time that he left until the next morning the acceptance of responsibility changed feet. Bob drove 75 miles one way to pick up a horse that these people no longer wanted and needed removed, just as they had one removed before it. Bob also has multiple pictures of this day and pictures of this lady’s boys chasing Maggie down, as they could not keep a hold of her or get her remotely close to loading her in the trailer.

The property owner has now posted a video that he took after Bob left his property that day showing Maggie’s trauma and gaping wounds, accusing Bob for this tragic event. She or he has also posted a picture of Maggie’s gaping wound on her chest with their version of what happened that day holding Bob to blame for this event. Of course, it was just a matter of time last evening when these pictures and video fell into the wrong hands last night and are now being used against us on Craigslist and all over Facebook, as if we are responsible in abusing this horse or any other animals.

This man has made accusations that he has tried to contact us, but has not contacted us since the morning after this took place asking Bob how he wished to proceed. This man is making accusations that he was trying to press charges or take legal action, but obviously this man has nothing to work with, as Bob is not to blame and he holds no negligence for this. This lady and her sons lost control of her horse on his property. Bob was there to take the horse into his possession, but was not able to do so due to the demeanor of this horse and the way her boys chose to take charge of the situation, after Bob stated that she would not load.

Of course, we have many that are having a field day with this knowledge and once again are trying to use this against our reputation. Bob has loaded many horses on trailers and many that were very stubborn and unwilling to load. I have witnessed quite a few myself and quite a few others have also witnessed their horses difficult to load, but Bob has worked with them and successfully loaded each one of them, when others could not. It amazes me the length people are willing to go to in order to hurt or tear someone apart. If Bob was at fault, then why hasn’t he received a lawsuit or criminal charges brought against him. Surely anyone can find our address and phone number, as it is posted all over the Internet, simply by googling our name. Why is it that this man chose to exploit us on the Internet, unless this was his last option to try to do damage to our reputation because he had nothing else to stand on. Animals are unpredictable and the most experienced horseman cannot control a horse with their great strength if they are out of control. The lady was searching for any way possible to get Maggie loaded and took her son’s advise to do such a stupid thing as to cover her eyes. Because this lady was so sure that these boys had done this before to get Maggie to load, Bob did take part in this idea. It was an all around bad deal and truly the wrong choices were made, as this lady was desperate to get this horse to load.

From experience, Bob has many people who will vouch for him that he has successfully loaded many horses into the trailer that have been quite difficult. We are experiencing a high volume of people here in the area attacking us and using any information possible to hate on us and tear us down. These people have gotten their feelings hurt for whatever reason and lashing out to hurt. We understand it for what it is and pray these people will see the error of their ways. In the meantime, we will continue forth in our mission here to work with these animals with the community and place these animals in loving homes. We cannot possibly waste time measuring our worth on other people’s opinions, but our worth is the good we can do for these animals in placing them in forever, loving homes.

We encourage anyone who questions are facility and cares enough about what we are doing to please come and see us and meet the animals. We have had an open-door policy since day one of opening our doors. People show up at the gates unannounced daily and call to make appointments within a half-hour’s notice. We hold the Domino Effect Adoption Day/Open House here every Saturday and invite the community out to be a part of what we are doing. We have adopted out over 60 animals since September and continue to do so. We take in rescues and we take in animals that are not rescues, but their owners have entrusted us with finding them good homes and we do so. We post everything we do daily on Facebook. We post pictures of every animal when they come in, while they are here, and pictures of them with their new families. If you question our rescue or motives, most of it is outlined on our Facebook with archives of the last 2 years of photos of everyone who have visited the ranch and every animal that has come through our doors. Everything is accounted for and through stories and updates everything is spoken on our daily progress. Please feel free to check out our rescue, we encourage you to do so. People who have surrendered their animals to us are on our Facebook and people who have adopted our animals are on our Facebook. We are trusted by so many because we do not hide from anything, but we are honest in everything that happens.

Do you know about your local rescue? No rescue shares as much detail about their rescue as we do and sometimes this information is used against us out of context to mislead people into thinking we are doing something wrong. If you have questions, ASK, we will answer to the best of our knowledge. This is what makes our operation unique, is that we are so open, honest, and down to earth.
