Laurie Shelton claims to be a horse breeder and has a paint stallion named Goldschlager, which she says is a reining horse. I paid her a fee for shipped semen from this stallion to breed my mare so I could raise, train and show the foal. I paid the money, signed the contract and returned the contract to her. After several attempts to contact her I finally got back the contract signed be her.
Fast forward to this spring (2006) and time to breed my mare. Lo and behold Laurie cannot be reached. She finally contacts me and says all is well, let me know when we need to ship. Shipment time comes, once again she cannot be reached. In the meantime, I find out Laurie is suspended from the breed association. Being suspended she cannot legaly ship semen, nor can the foal be registered even if she did ship semen. Finally, after threatening to go to authorities, Laurie contacts me to say she is taking care of everything and we can get the semen shipped by the end of April. It's the end of July and nothing has changed and now once again Laurie is not returning contact attempts.
I am NOT the only one! I was contacted a couple of days ago by another unknowing person trying to get Laurie to ship semen. Another sucker. Don't do business with Laurie Shelton or Shelton's Ranch home of Goldschlager. She takes your money, gives you a signed contract and never follows through. I am outover $600.00 and lots of time spent trying to contact her and listening to her many, many excuses.
Good thing is...she took enough of my money for this to be a felony and it is being pursued by the authorities. She is in big trouble and doesn't even know it yet.
What is stated here is truth and is what has happened in my case with this individual.
