DATE: May 21, 2009:
The woman that owns Rainey Hill Ranch - Lori Lorini - tries to pass herself off as a "horse rescue operation". When in fact she is nothing more than a horse dealer that buys horses for cheap at auctions, brings them back to her 2 acre "ranch", and then turns around and sells them at bargain basement prices for a quick turnaround profit. As of this date she has a horse's picture listed on her website for sale named "Fancys Magic Moment". The Auction Sales Tag is clearly shown on the horse's hind hind (photo attached) which BTW are cemented down. There is also another photo of a horse she has for sale "Mouse" tied up to a chain link fence. A picture is worth a 1000 words. She had advertised recently that she was getting horses in on May 16th. MEANING: Getting them from an auction. All one needs to do is scroll around her website and read where she states under the section: DO'S AND DON'TS which proves this lady is a scammer:
??Some Common questions??
Can I make payments? No ! I am a small business and need to repurchase horses to continue my ability to sell at low prices .
Deposits -Deposits on horses are NON-REFUNDABLE! NO EXCEPTIONS! 10% min $100.00
A DEPOSIT WILL HOLD HORSE FOR 5 DAYS ONLY !Horse will not be "held" unless a non refundable deposit of $100.00 is made or 10% of the cost of the horse which ever is greater
Terms- Payments must be made in full within 5 days . BY CASH. NO CHECKS!
Fees -Any horse left more than 2 days will be charged A $5.00 PER DAY BOARD FEE
Trials- Do you do trials ? NO !!!
Trucking- Trucking is NOT included in the price of the horse. I DO NOT TRUCK! No exceptions !!! I can give you the names of horse transporters
Guarantees Is this horse guaranteed ? Again No! ONLY god Knows what is going to happen from day to day I can guarantee this horse only as it stands on our property .
With any Live Animal It Is IMPOSSIBLE To GUARANTEE what it will do when you change its home, rider tack, circumstances, feed, owner, etc ... I make every effort to tell you everything we know, but I have not owned these animals all their lives, they are purchased for resell, so we can only tell you what I know.
Vaccinations Does the horse I am buying have all its shots? Most of the time they do not have records with shots. If they do you will receive them with the horse, I do worm all horses coming in and try to have their feet trimmed. These again, are bought for resale, so rabies, 4 way, etc is not required to be done. Only a coggins is mandatory in NY.
All Sales are Final !
No Cash Refunds, Sorry NO exceptions!
