Review for Horsesisters & Associates Inc, Titusville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  


My review is directed toward the misinformation and half truths spread by one, Lynn Lambo. Ms. Lambo has provided reviews to discredit HorseSisters as this organization struggles to maintain their donor base so essential to all charities. As stated by Ms. Lambo she does indeed spend an inordinate amount of time maintaining a Facebook group dedicated to presenting HorseSisters in a negative light. There are a handful of members of this “group” page and it seems Ms. Lambo does the lion’s share of posting, with no check and balance as she chooses who and who is not a member. Basically, no one challenges her. With that said, HorseSisters is a charity which survives on donations. Ms. Lambo attacks HorseSisters’ work to secure donors. Why? These donations provide the necessary funds to care for the horses Ms. Lambo so emphatically states she worries about. ??? Ms. Lambo, though not participating in any feeding or other care of these animals, presents the horses as “food insecure.” One has to ask, “how would she know?” What intimate knowledge could she possible have? ??? According to public records, three horses were removed from HorseSisters and a Fit to Own hearing held by Brevard County. One was returned, and even as admitted by Ms. Lambo, was “deemed healthy” by the Court. The other two horses were of advanced age and were “remanded” to the individuals who were in the process of adopting them. For those who don’t understand the legal term Remand… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remand_(court_procedure) Based on the definition, it is obvious that by remanding the horses to the care of the adopters, the Court was taking the animals from the care of Brevard County Animal Services and placing them BACK IN THE CARE of the adopters. The Court, citing the financial difficulties facing HorseSisters, did not remove any horses from their care but in fact, found HorseSisters FIT TO OWN. To ensure the correctness of the decision, the Court allowed Brevard County Animal Services to monitor HorseSisters for a period of one year. That has been several months ago and no adverse actions have been instituted against HorseSisters to date meaning…. THE HORSES ARE BEING CARED FOR. Therefore, it is my position that Lynn Lambo is single handedly blocking donations to HorseSisters based on misinformation which, in addition to reducing funds to the charity, also has served as interference to the investigative function of Brevard Animal Services in contradiction to Order of Judge Friedland and the law. Lynn Lambo’s actions to interfere with this charity have created the false appearance of failings on the part of HorseSisters but even with the set backs, they have persevered and continue to move forward. Lynn Lambo appears to live in a world where she believes herself the moral compass by which we all must live. She appears to not be able to recognize that others have benefited from this charity and that many people would like for the charity to continue its operations absent her interference, including with the lawful processes designed to reveal the truth and justice. Where I come from, this is called DELUSION, Ms. Lambo.

Thank you so much for your great research and the time you took to write your very factual and honest review here for all the public to see. Lynn Lambo is a fake profile - a fake person - hiding behind a computer screen as the worst kind of bully imaginable. Those she has gathered near her in her little "posse" of hateful folks have some sort of past with us through the 14 years as people who were perhaps ONCE a part of our HERD but asked to leave for their criminal, negligent, abusive acts or their drug/alcohol use. A few have been denied the opportunity to adopt because they refused to submit the necessary paperwork or were deemed unfit by our board of trustees - of which the Director is NOT a part of, therefore she cannot vote. Sadly this has always been a personal vendetta against Clairese and they have made the most unkind, untrue comments and now have included her entire family. Such hatred is pitiful. And the harm to those horses, our fragile clients and wonderful volunteers has been severe to the entire charity. The facility looks like a ghost town compared to what it was last year as a result. But still we stand tall - providing paperwork and references in complete transparency and truthfulness and continue to role model for our youth in how people MUST treat others. Thank you again, Clairese Yuhasz Austin, Founder and Director
