NO PHONE NUMBER COULD BE FOUND TO CONTACT PARKER???? The number was PRINTED DIRECTLY ON the flyer, calling for riflemen to execute the horses!!! Call the number the first week the flyer went out, and you got Trenton Parker, himself, or a voicemail, giving instructions as to where and when to show up to shoot the horses. Call the SAME NUMBER a week later, and you get the "National Horse Rescue Association", a fraudulent rescue group that was filed for an Article of Incorporation on Sept. 1, 2009, 3 days ago...and does NOT have a 503C1 status. Parker made it VERY CEAR as to how to contact him if you wanted to shoot the horses. HIs own voice was on the recording linked to the number, again, if you called the first week wanting to show up as a gunman. How FASCINATING that later, the same number was there for the purposes of "SAVING" the horses. In the form of a donation, of course. Parker is a habital criminal, with a long list of fraud charges.'Anyone else smell a SCAM on this one?

I have known Trenton Parker for 33 years. Is he a bit daffy? Certainly, but he is no animal killer. We’ve stayed in touch on at least a quarterly basis over the years and I can tell you that no one has sacrificed more for his horses than Trenton. I’ve been urging him to get rid of his “horse burden” for over 15 years but his love for these animals – caring for them in bitter cold winters and stifling heat with little-to-none of the “human comforts” that most of us cannot live without – always trumped his own well being.

Is he “crazy?” Yes,“crazy like a fox.” Out of desperation he used the press to make his point about what he considers to be unfair treatment by the local zoning authorities, and he got his horses taken care of. I don’t know what punishment this merits but, in my humble opinion, it should not entail jail time.

If I can amplify any aspect of this memo please do not hesitate to contact me.

Trenton H. Parker,Horse Killer?

I'm resending this because your system does not accommodate quotation marks.

Gregory, there seems to be a lot of evidence to contradict the picture you have painted of this Parker feller. According to VoiceOfReason, it was his phone number with clear instructions on where to go to shoot the horses. And now, a week later that number goes to a "horse rescue outfit" that apparently up until three days ago didn't exist. Whether he's your friend or not, you have to admit there are a lot of red flags here. And what about VoiceOfReason's claim that this Parker feller is a habitual criminal with a long list of fraud chatges? Do you know anything about that? It seems you consider him a freind, but at some point you have to acknowledge that it appears he really screwed up!

Screwed up indeed. Did I not hear a recording of this dude saying he was going to shoot them in the belly with bows and arrows? And take sledge hammers to their heads?

Hi Dizzee, it's been a long time. Uh, you don't know who this is, but we used to post back and forth a while back under another name. Good to hear from you again. Raysmom already remembers me and I think GJFlash does too and GarageGuy as well. Haven't heard from Fishermike. It was back then that I knew you all. Anyways, I hope you figure it out.

Rolling On The Floor (laughing)! So you guys finally met up- nice!

This guy couldn't shoot his own horses because he's a convicted felon and can't own a gun- he stole 9 Million from investors.

Maybe, just maybe, his buddy is right that it was all a hoax to get the horses cared for, but if so, it was just another scam, right? All that land he says isn't his IS his- under different land trusts.

I hope they throw the book at him for anything they can.

This is a sick (man) animal, he needs to be put down on the ground and have his brains (if any) smashed in. He should lead the life that his horses have led. They did not ask to be put on this (sickos) property. Parker should have a complete mental evaluation and then he should be locked up for the rest of his life. If Parker could do this to an animal WHAT WILL OR WHAT COULD HE DO TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR SONS & DAUGHTERS...COME ON PEOPLE TAKE OUT THE TRASH.

My precious Arabian mare just passed away. I miss her terribly and am very heart broken as is her 5yr old filly . Can anyone tell me if any of these rescued horses are up for adoption?
I provide a safe and extremely loving home. Each of my horses have a wonderful stall with infra-red heat lamps to keep them warm on those freezing nights. I have 21 acres for them to romp in. However, all my horses are brought into the barn at night and during bad weather. They are very much loved and somewhat spoiled.
Please be so knd as to let me know if this is an option.
Thank you.

Yes, you can call the same number and get the Parker ranch.
Currently the horses are somwhere else. There are some really big hearted folks who are cleaning up the property in hopes of taking it over with proper facilities to care for the horses.
Trenton is out of the picture.

I know Trent, I have worked with Trent he is not a bad man. Give it time and a lot of horse will have the pleasure of being under his care. I don't know a better horsemen then Trent Parker did he make a threats to kill the horses to bring public attention to land control issues, yea he did. But did he kill the horses? NO HE DID NOT!!!!! To many people lost prospective of the the issue who is control of property the land owner or the government?
If I own a peace of property why should big bother be able to tell me what I can and can not store on said property? Who gave them the right? People need to focus on the bigger issue did Parker do anything wrong in the first place other than own property in the middle of no where that the government wanted for a road? Before all this happened were the horses taken care, yea they were for many years and better than most horses are today. But if you don't sell out this could happen to you.
How else does someone bring attention to matter in today's world without a catch? If Trent said I'm getting screwed because people that don't own the land are telling me what to do with my land would it have brought this much public attention? I don't think so! If you think I am wrong please say so but ask yourself this first what brought on the 90 day jail term in the first place and what would you have done different that would have got results?
Thanks,
