Please see the previous News page before reading this. This is a very short version of the tragedy that occurred. Being   in   graduate   school,   money   and   time   was   lacking   and   I   had   advertised   that   I   was   going   to   reduce   my   horse   herd   (I   had 30)   until   such   time   as   I   completed   my   studies   and   obtained   employment   (the   whole   purpose   behind   my   going   back   to   college was   to   earn   money   to   support   my   equine   family).   Rachelle   had   come   and   seen   Magnifico   and   fell   in   love   with   him.   I   fell   in   love with   Rachelle   --   a   very   sweet   person   (so   I   thought).   Her   father,   Dick   Edwards,   called   me   later   and   offered   me   a   business arrangement. Dick   Edwards   made   me   a   proposal   tto   go   into   partnership   with   him.   He   would   use   most   of   my   horses   in   an   equine   center within   a   housing   project   he   was   building   in   Redlands.   Anyone   who   bought   one   of   his   homes   would   have   riding   privileges.   In addition,   my   stallions   there   would   breed   my   mares   and   the   offspring   sold   to   his   Turkish   clients.   There   are   big   Arabian breeding   facilities   in Turkey   and   the   offspring   is   prized   for   their   athletic   ability.   Dick   said   he   saw   that   same   ability   and   quality   in my   Whispering   Oaks Arabians,   as   well   as   the   love   I   had   for   them,   evident   on   my   web   site.   He   understood   the   financial   burden we   were   experiencing   while   I   went   back   to   college   and   said   he   wanted   to   help   us   out.   He   even   built   into   the   contract   that   I could   reclaim   some   of   the   horses   when   finances   were   better.   So   far   as   our   partnership   was   concerned,   I   was   to   be   paid   25% of   the   profits   made   from   my   horses,   i.e.   breeding   and   offspring   sales.   I   was   to   continue   advertising   them   and   updating   the web   site;   that   is,   I   was   to   stay   involved   (which   I   did   through   many   long   phone   calls   to   Rachelle,   emails,   and   upkeep   of   the web   site).   I   sent   my   2   stallions   (last   uncut   son   of   TLA   Halynov   and   Explodent   --   both   Champion   stallions   and   sires   of champions)   along   with   champion   producing   mares   and   2   offspring. As   you   can   tell   from   my   last   news   post,   I   was   really   happy my   horses   were   all   at   Rachelle   Martin’s   place   in   Redlands,   and   when   I   visited   them   and   took   Rachelle   the   papers,   they   were healthy and happy. Then   Rachelle   suddenly   called   me   and   needed   the   remaining   unregistered   colt   papers   transferred   to   her,   reportedly   for investors   in   the   real   estate   deal;   I   explained   I   had   already   started   registration.   Unless   she   wished   to   be   charged   a   late   fee, she   would   have   to   register   in   my   name   and   then   I   would   sign   the   papers,   just   as   I   did   for   the   other   horses   with   her.   Less   than 3   months   after   I   signed   and   delivered   the   papers   to   her,   I   was   contacted   by   a   person   who   was   interested   in   buying   Solstar, yet said Rachelle was reluctant to show her the papers. She tracked me down through my web site. I   was   in   shock.   Rachelle   refused   to   answer   my   email   asking   her   to   talk   to   me,   nor   did   she   answer   my   phone   calls.   I   blocked my   number   and   she   picked   up   and   answered   in   a   hostile   manner   once   she   recognized   my   voice   and   asked   me   why   I   was calling.   I   told   her   I   wanted   to   discuss   what   was   going   on,   and   she   replied   I’d   given   her   the   horses   and   it   was   none   of   my business.   When   I   pointed   out   that   we   had   a   contract,   she   was   surprised   and   said   her   father   was   in   critical   shape   in   the hospital   and   she   let   me   know   the   horses   were   none   of   my   business,   in   so   many   words,   and   hung   up   on   me.   I   had   already   told her   that   money   was   not   the   object   and   that   I   was   just   concerned   about   my   horses   and   offered   to   work   out   a   financial arrangement.   I   offered   to   let   her   keep   all   the   money   for   the   lease   for   Solstar,   so   long   as   I   could   get   him   back   after   the   lease, should   the   person   who   called   me   not   want   him   past   the   year   she   wanted   to   breed   her   mares   to   him.   Nothing   I   wrote   or   said   in that phone call made any difference. It   appears   she   has   done   this   before   as   she   never   gave   me   the   actual   address   of   my   horses’   location   (just   directions)   nor   her home   address,   nor   did   her   father.   There   is   no   place   to   serve   papers   if   I   went   to   court;   I   was   only   given   an   LA   business address   for   her   father   and   when   I   called,   the   receptionist   would   not   tell   me   when   her   father   would   be   there,   or   if   he   even worked   there.   I   traced   down   the   company   accountant   through   LinkedIn   and   told   him   I   wanted   to   send   Dick   flowers   and   he was   shocked   --   he   obviously   did   not   know   anything   about   any   hospitalization   story.   I   asked   him   to   call   me   back   after   he   spoke to   Dick   or   have   Dick   call   me;   no   one   ever   did.   Sheriffs   will   not   get   involved   in   civil   matters   and   the   contract   I   have   says   the case   must   go   to   arbitration   before   any   legal   action   is   taken.   By   that   time,   the   horses   would   be   dispersed;   no   way   to   trace them as she is obviously selling them without papers. Oh, I do know she runs a bar in Norco. If   you   have   run   across   any   of   them,   please   contact   me.   The   horses   she   sold   or   gave   away   are   on   my   web   site   --   either   the stallion   or   mare   pages.   They   are:   Hals   Riverdance ,   IIWP   Solstar,    Mamma   Mia    (my   halter   champion   daughter   of   Halynov).   RS Silver   Song ,   LTH   Haleah ,   “Boots”   or   WOA   Halyva   Explosion    (my   last   son   of   Solstar),   WOA   Halyva   Romeo   (my   last   son   of Romanov);   fortunately   we   were   able   to   recover   WOA   Sheza   Showoff .   from   a   rescue   center. Thank   you,   Lisa   Bone!   She   heard from   Rachelle   that   all   the   horses   were   gone,   save   Magnifico,   and   possibly   Riverdance.   I   cannot   afford   the   attorney   cost   of   a law   suit   and   reportedly   Dick   Edwards   is   a   man   of   great   means.   I   later   learned   from   our   equestrian   Olympic   trainer   that   Dick’s partner,   Jane   Un,   was   prosecuted   for   real   estate   fraud.   This   is   apparently   not   the   first   time   that   shady   deals   have   been perpetrated   on   honest   people.   Bad   things   happen   to   many   good   people   and   all   you   can   do   is   walk   away   and   leave   hurt, anger   behind.   Again,   if   anyone   has   information   as   to   the   whereabouts   of   any   of   the   above   horses,   please   contact   me.   I   am not concerned with any monetary payment -- just want to make sure they have good loving homes.
