AC4H is a complete scam. A majority of the horses listed are at no risk for slaughter. Jesse Austin and Brian Moore are their "kill buyers". Jesse Austin does not even have a slaughter contract and has not sent to slaughter in years. Brian's listed horses are horses bought for resale. The horses he buys for slaughter have no "second chance". The Sheidys tack on $100+ on every horse they list. They also charge $55 for a $22 coggins along with a mandatory "donation". The are totally incompetent on basic horse knowledge such as determining height,age,breed, and sometimes even color! The kids are brats and constantly bicker and have very little respect for horses. Everything they do is to make money, they don't care about the horses at all! Also, NONE of the broker owned horses are located at their farm! They are at the brokers farms! Jesse Austin's in in Louisa,VA and Brian Moore's is close to Allentown,PA. The only time they are in direct care of any of the broker horses is when they are dropped off Sunday might by the brokers until they are picked up from the new owners. They receive MINIMAL bedding (like maybe one scoop per stall), a flake of hay, and a bucket of water. They claim they have sooo many expenses....the only expense they have for the broker owned program is renting the pickup barn for $100 a week. Also, they push horses that aren't even the type to be at risk of slaughter! Minis, ponies, greys, studs, anything under 600lbs, shippers don't ship! Instead of being scammed by them, contact the actual owner of the horse (most likely Jesse Austin or Brian Moore) and buy it from them for at least $100 less. Also, THEY ARE UNDER INVESTIGATION BY THE FBI! Don't believe me??? Contact Cedar Ridge Farm and ask! They are on Facebook!
