Do Not buy any horses from Angela Jones, aka Angela Lawson, Tiffany, Eugene, Lynn XX, Joe(y) Lawson from the McMinnville, Morrison or Smartt, TN area.
I had responded to an online add on Horseclicks for a beautiful mare and spoke with Angela, aka Lynn on several occassions for hours at a time.
I was looking for a safe, almost bombproof TW to help restore my confidence in riding as I have had a multitude of injuries from young, greenbroke horses. I explained my needs and was assured by Lynn that this would be the perfect horse for me. She claimed that she has owned the horse since it was 6 months old and that she had taken it out on trail rides - even night rides - every week and that very little would spook this horse. She even claimed that her neice (8 years old) who had autism, rode this horse without issue and that I couldn't find a more laid back animal. I asked why she was selling her and was told that she no longer could ride due to past injuries and that it wasn't fair to the horse to just stand around.
Lynn was coming my direction within the next couple of weeks, and was willing to bring the horse out to me - we agreed upon a price and I was looking forward to having this perfect animal home.
During our conversations, she mentioned that the she owned the father of this horse and that he was for sale also if I would like to have a slightly older horse - as they were pasture buddies and she didn't want to seperate them if possible. She sent me a picure and I thought that it might be nice to have a pair so that my friends with little riding experience could enjoy the trails with me.
3 weeks came and went and no horse - only excuses as to why she couldn't bring the horse out - so I decided to make the trip to TN to pick up the horses - When I got there, the paperwork that she had told me was completed - WAS NOT!!!! There was no vet check, no coggins, no registration (the mare was advertised as a fully registered TW). I had no choice at this point but to load up the horses since I had driven so far and take a chance with no paperwork.
The horses that I got home - not kid friendly, not bombproof, SPOOKY at the simplist of noise including ATV's and birds!!!! (I was told that the horses use to flush out quail) - More like the quail flushed out the horse - One horse has had such a bad abcess that the hoof is split all the way up and will take months if not a year to grow out - if ever. The mare is underweight and skiddish.
Then, I find out that these two horses came out of the livestock auction and the mare is still being advertised under another website, under a different name and different registration. When my friend called the other day to inquire about the horse, instead of being told that the horse was sold, she was told the exact same story as I was, and that if she was interested in her, Lynn was heading towards Nebraska and could deliver the horse in the next couple of weeks - Watch out - she will have an accident over the weekend and injur her leg in a Quad accident - then have to go in for surgery and will not be able to find anyone to bring the horse to you. She will refer you to USHIP for a quote and then, when you don't have the animal picked up within the week, demand that you do - She will not provide the necessary paperwork - even though you are told that it is done.
I even went so far as to call the vet that she supposidly used to get copies of the paperwork - and they informed me that they had not seen these two horses.
Please - stay away from her and her KID BROKE, GENTLE, BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, ANYONE CAN RIDE HORSES!!!!! SHE IS A LIAR AND WILL DO NOTHING BUT TAKE YOUR MONEY!!!!!
