"Imitation is the flattest form of sincerity," but what would one expect from the feral farmer and money moocher?
anyone tell Katz?
Sounds like she's a copy-katz
Damn, that post has 156 likes so far. Wow. I didn't know that many people were paying attention lol
"If I have one wish for you, it is that you someday get to walk inside a warm house after hours in a cold wood."WTF? Does she think she's the only one to spend time in the woods? That's her one wish for people?I spend plenty of time in the woods in all weather. I hike year round (yes, even when it's cold and snowy), I cross country ski, and I've even been know to ice-bike. In fact, I spent a lot of time in my childhood playing for hours in the woods behind my home, coming inside red cheeked and frosty, to a warm house and cup of hot chocolate.Oh my goodness - she was outside in the woods and came home to a warm house. How special!
The difference is that you didn't sit in a cold wood thinking about how awesome you are. You were *gasp* playing or hiking. Talk about a missed opportunity to reflect on your own awesomeness and how you give to society just by existing.
I read that with dismay. For years I spent many a cold day or night tending sheep or watching for ewes to lamb. I walk in all kinds of weather, and yes, it is wonderful to come home to a warm and inviting house with the smell of a bubbling crock pot, but it is hardly unheard of.It's what I call a simple pleasure.
Jenna: "If I have one wish for you, it is that you someday stop scamming people and get a real job."
She posted a pic of Friday in her truck and said that is emotional pornography to her.She. Is. Nuts.
Everything is simply a show-off-my-coolness prop to her. Life as stage set. I know she IMAGINES she is living authentically - even bravely, haha! - but her animals are poorly cared-for props,for the most part, the house a filthy yet artfully arranged set, at least from audience/camera distance, CAF a poorly written drama, and the farm show lass a sham, desperately hawking crap on the sidewalk and trying to shoo potential audience in to fill at least enough seats to keep the lights on for one more matinee.It could be sad, and I could feel bad for her - if only she wasn't so transparent, taken to lying and scamming, and utterly full of herself to a point far beyond unearned arrogance. And stubborn, obnoxious, and distasteful in so many ways.Yet still fallen for by.......?????? I don't get it. I guess people who still stumble upon her and haven't followed closely for years. Or someones. Or somethings. Whatever. Gggggohhh jeennnnnnn=NaH.Otherwise, I might have had empathy to spare - because many of us are not able to happily and successfully pull off living our dream life, or even living a relatively content and peaceful one for that matter.
You've succinctly summed it up: "It could be sad, and I could feel bad for her - if only she wasn't so transparent, taken to lying and scamming, and utterly full of herself to a point far beyond unearned arrogance. And stubborn, obnoxious, and distasteful in so many ways."Eventually, all of those character flaws will bite Jenna in her fat ass.
Yep she is full blown nuts and has been for some time. Her attempt at edgey: "emotional pornography" in reference to her dog shows what her writing has become. Half wit at best.
I know. She takes common everyday experiences and treats them like they were heroic acts. The one about being outside in the cold and coming into a warm house takes the cake. Anybody who lives in an area that gets cold has had that experience. Sounds like she is running out of things to write about.
I can see the title of her next book: "The Gal That Came In From The Cold".
Anyone try attaching a #coldantlershamtoo tag for this site on everything she posts on Twitter? That would be great. Think you're getting a new crop of fools to buy in? Think again!
Having trouble posting here? Use Google Chrome for your Browser. Not safari. That should solve it.
Jenna is so desperate, tweeting so many pics of her animals/Anna Kendrick's book to Anna...so far no response. And big deal if Anna (more like her hired help who tweets for her) does respond. Jenna is so foolish -- she could be doing some amazing things...but no...
She brings up her dog's bedroom eyes and obsessively tweets annoying minor celebrities in the same week! Good job, Jenna, you dirtbag! Also, can you please stop ending every sentence with a question mark? It makes you more easy to hate, thanks.
Another pathetic holiday at Jenna's CAF. She claimed to be "sick" but not surprisingly was well enough to post on social media for the rest of the night. Don't worry Jenna. We know that you spent Thanksgiving alone because you have alienated yourself from every human being within a 100 mile radius.That's what happens when you take advantage of others and burn every bridge presented to you. You end up all alone.So far today it has been yet another episode of "Look at me! Look at me!" with Snowflake's Twitter posts regarding her black farm animals on black Friday.Hey Jenna: Time to do a new dance. We've seen this one a million times before.
She's "sick," all right. What a delusional dipshit, constantly seeking attention from stupid celebrities.
Jenna: 1)Take a shower and 2)stop wearing clothes that you have put into the freezer to "clean" and maybe you will rid your home of the "moldy cloth" smell you can't seem to locate.
Oh my god, what an insufferable, thin-skinned baby. She's mighty defensive about her social media and movie habits. She unfriended (or was unfriended by) someone who asked her how she managed to get any work done with all the binge watching and FB/twitter posting and whatnot--- Jenna took the time to make a five part response and then screenshot it so everyone else could enjoy. And what is up with that bully Tina Cook? Not sure but I think Jenna is paying her for her expertise in social media yet I'd say her behavior is likely driving people off from the scene. There's something so gross about the way she has to make a display of her exchange with the former fan so that all the usual suspects can come out and like her comments and support her. Such a frigging child.
"I work usully from 10-2 and then more after dinner, at computer stuff. Farm stuff before coffee and after dinner." So which is it? Farm stuff or work stuff after dinner??? (BTW, typo was hers as per usual) OK if she works 10-2 that's only 4 hours, and all that time she's also watching movies and FB/tweeting? So if she works 4 hours in the day then "after dinner" she'd have to put in an additional 3 hours to even call it a workday. NO work is getting done, I guarantee you.
I can see watching shows or listening to audiobooks while doing a drawing. I cannot see doing either while doing graphic design. Particularly audiobooks which require nearly as much attention as reading. You can't think about something else and listen to an audiobook. Doesn't work. Movies are more forgiving. But why would you want to? If it's worth watching -- then watch it, give it the attention it deserves.I'm simply floored by her movie watching. To each their own, sure-- it's just that I can't imagine it. She watched the new Gilmore Girls which is six hours and started right in watching it a second time. Like wtf? How do you even begin to watch that much freaking TV? I would not be surprised if she's trying to drown out her own reality.
Has anyone local driven by there lately. O.M.GIt isn't scrappy, it isn't disheveled, it isn't a working farm, and it doesn't have any working livestock, pets or people on it. It's a run down house on an unkempt 6 acres of uncut and uncared for woods with fallen down broken buildings. Sometimes there is a light on and one can assume since Jenna is online ALL DAY that is why. Other times her vehicle is at the brewery. I almost always see year round her goats standing on 2 feet of shit packed straw. Farmer-ha! That's not what anyone that knows her or lives in Cambridge calls her. She's really got these fellow crazies fooled. I think she should copy all her posts from all her social media sites and quite a few of her crazy followers posts. Call the book-- Living in a Sea of Denial; my life at my fairy tale farm supported entirely by social media followers swimming in the sea of denial with me. smh
If you like what you are doing then why the distraction? I've never seen a farmer around here watching television why he or she is milking. Is the radio on in some barns- yes. I have never seen a veterinarian listening to an audio book while attending to livestock. Or the mail person tweeting while delivering my mail or my accountant with their FB up and typing while they are filing my taxes. What I have seen is an uptick in idiots on the highway using their cellphones to text while driving, or applying make-up while driving or watching television while driving. It sounds like people like that and JW would fit right in with each other. It's clear she has ADD so why would she want to put so many other things in the mix when she really should be studying and learning how to be a better graphic designer. Could this be why her drawings and logos look like they were done by a 6 year old?She's using social media to escape her life. The one her followers and fans bought for her. She can't even draw or perform an actual task without checking in on social media to make sure her created illusion is still getting a pat on the back. Pats on the back and amen charlies mean-$
I agree with what you wrote: "She's using social media to escape her life." Exactly.
We live locally, too. And I agree about her faux farm. It's an embarrassment to the area. She should cut her considerable losses, and move back to Tennessee.
Jenna Woginrich: I have 95 notifications pending I just checked on and half of them are about Anna Kendrick.That's sad. She probably thinks it's cute but seriously. I haven't seen an infatuation like this since my grandma and Elvis.
The weird way that she names hawks after female celebrities is almost stalkerish, too. It doesn't make a difference, but I've detected a dyke attitude about her for years. But she's probably afraid to come outta the queer closet.
I think she is hoping that during one of Anna or Aya's late night talk show appearances, they will actually mention her, the hawks, her farm, something that will give her the attention she craves.
I have ADD and have a job crunching numbers that is so detail oriented to the point where people go out of their way to say they're glad they don't have my job. Sometimes I need to listen to talk radio, sometimes music, in order to focus on the numbers. Doesn't make sense, but it works to keep me on task. The distraction helps me focus. So when Jenna has stuff she's listening to in the background, I get it.It's her not finishing the work I have issue with. That's where she loses me.
Jenna via Twitter:"I feel the most me with a kilt around my waist, a knife in my boot, a horse in my yard, and a hawk on my fist. Grow up to be want you want."Keep perpetuating that lie, Jenna. She is trying so hard to be bad-ass and she is far from it. Posts like this one are just downright embarrassing.
You mean grow up to be a beggar and moocher?
How about adding a steady job under your belt?
I can understand listening to music while working. My daughter is a graphic designer and she can't work without her music. It's the binge watching TV I don't understand. You need to use your eyes and ears plus brain to focus. I'm sure this is why she is always so behind in her work. Being on social media gets her further behind too. You can't type, tweet, write and draw at the same time. Every time she stops to post on Facebook or tweet something it's time away from her work. And since she is tweeting and posting all day it's no wonder she can't catch up.Thus the reliance on donations.
To anyone considering taking "fiddle" lessons from Jenna Woginrich:Put the $375 she charges toward a decent instrument and teach yourself via YouTube instructional videos.A cheap violin will always sound like shit no matter how talented the player is. A good instrument makes all the difference.
Excellent advice! I think the fiddle lessons baloney was one of the first things that really annoyed me about CAF. Although, now that I think of it, alarm bells were going off in the early days when she held a workshop to teach someone how to make mozzarella....like, come on! Did she discover some of the last people on earth who don't know how to YouTube or something?She's self-taught and not at all qualified to be teaching anyone else anything about music. It's absolutely criminal that she suckers people into buying a craptastic violin, traveling to her farm, and then (worst of all) subjecting them to her incompetent tutelage.
Jenna Woginrich: I am bringing my hawk inside, lighting the wood stove, candles, and planning to do nothing but cook dinner and watch a LOTR marathon this Saturday. Farm chores will be breaks between films. I need a day off.If Jenna were family, a friend or anyone I cared about I would be staging an intervention. The sheer volume of TV watching is staggering. She watched Gilmore Girls twice in the last couple of days..that's 12 hours worth of screen time. Now she's on to Lord of the Rings. Does she not tire of living in someone else's fiction? She must be so dull in person given the importance placed on pop culture and all the binge-watching and re-watching of the same damn movies over and over and over. She once claimed she'd watched Braveheart over 600 times, she used to watch it every time it rained. Tell me that isn't some kind of self-soothing behavior. That's a lot of time down the toilet never to be gotten back.
I think it fits in well with her drinking routine. Everything she does and says screams addict.
From Facebook: JW: “I am bringing my hawk inside, lighting the wood stove, candles, and planning to do nothing but cook dinner and watch a LOTR marathon this Saturday. Farm chores will be breaks between films. I need a day off.”Response: “You are an amazingly strong woman, you deserve some down time!! Enjoy!!”OMG It always amazes me how these numb skull amen charlies just DON'T PAY ATTENTION. A day off??? Her ENTIRE life is a day off.
How can bringing a wild animal into a warm home and then back out into the cold be good for it? Going back into frigid temperatures, after spending time next to a wood burning stove, must wreck havoc with its system.
Jenna Woginrich: Here's an idea! Instead of being a critic of movies, books, art, and plays already created - how about you write some essays about or create the art YOU WANT beforehand. Do not lay all your desires at the feet of strangers. Because they choose what genders your Ghostbusters are, Logan or Jess, or what the next Marvel superhero will be. Not you.Bitching about something like a movie you didn't like - which you paid $10 to go see (which wouldn't cover one strand of hair extension for the actress in it) and took 300+ people to make, who paid their bills and fed their families with - how about you just don't.I am so sick of people who create nothing demanding things from people who create. Either ask for what you want beforehand or create it YOURSELF. Or, accept that you are paying for the ability to see into someone elses brain for a small moment. And that creator doesn't owe you anything but their best effort and honesty........this is highly weird. Why the hell wouldn't you critique art, movies etc? They're produced to be consumed by others (usually for profit). You damn well bet I'm gonna bitch if I lay out $10 and get something as shitty as Ghostbusters in return. Is she really so fragile she can't handle people shitting on things that she's (presumably) enjoying? Yikes. This is really possibly one of the stranger ideas she's put forth. Furthermore, she's at it again with the false arguments -- assumes the people doing the criticizing are not also creating-- she can't possibly claim that's a true statement.
It seems to be her desperate attempt to have a conversation with someone (anyone). She is mostly ignored so she attempts to start an argument. She leads a pathetic, lonely existence.
Is she referring to herself? That she doesn't want to be criticized for her 'work'?
Jenna via Twitter:"Guys, if you think Falconry is impressive, please note I am in awe of anyone who created and raised a human child that says please."That would count Mama Woginrich out. Especially when it comes to her crazy daughter, Jenna, saying Thank You. I've never seen a more ungrateful person in my life.
Hahahahahaha!!! Excellent point!
Ironically, I was banned from her Facebook for making the same point to Mama Woginrich. I said that "her daughter was ungrateful."
Jenna via Twitter:"@jodiroper222 oh you can't see it but she already ate the head shoulders and one arm. I put the thighs in the freezer for me. rest is hers!"She put the hawk's rabbit leftovers in the freezer so she (Jenna) could eat them later?! Are you f'ing kidding me?
Jenna's latest blog post- "I felt a pride that could make a sponge drip."Does she realize that she doesn't make a damn bit of sense? If she's trying to be out there and edgey, she has completely missed the mark. Jenna had better improve her scam game because whatever writing talent she had has disappeared.
"In other new: I think Gibson has a broken toe. There is nothing for it other than rest and pain meds." How about taking him to the vet???
I think this is the fourth or fifth broken toe Gibson has had in the past year. And by broken toe, I mean rallying cry for donations.
You are so right! She's just waiting for someone to ask if she took him to the vet so she can reply, " I can't afford it."
Is it not a bit weird how Gibson is sidelined several times a year? Pretty sure this is the second incidence of a broken toe. Previously, he's had cut paw pads and a leg strain. Seems to be injured an awful lot which is convenient if you're hoping to get folks to send in a little something. If he truly is hurt, she should take him to the vet. She's a complete numskull and has no animal sense whatsoever. Definitely not competent to diagnose her dog.She's absolutely shameless carrying on as if she needs either of those dogs to handle the sheep. Where would she be herding them to? She only has a 5 or 6 acres. Solid fences would prevent escapes and no way should either of those dogs be herding outside the confines of a fence, anyway. They are not trained. When I see her writing about Gibson "herding" them in/near the road...I just can't deal with how reckless she is with her supposed beloved dog.
There she goes again. How many times is she going to trot out the old "Gibson has a broken toe" routine? It must generate a lot of money. She is absolutely waiting for the opportunity to say she can't afford a vet. Shameless.
If she cannot afford vet visits, she should not have animals.
CAF = ColossAl Failure
Jenna via Twitter:"Truck broke down. this is not a good day."The dog with the broken toe story must not have brought in enough cash.
It's probably the same repair needed a few weeks ago- not starting in damp weather. She said it would cost "several hundred" dollars to fix. Nice try Snowflake. More like a $30 distributor cap.
Jenna Woginrich: Truck broke down, steering column again I think. Worried and frustrated.Jenna Woginrich: good news, friend got it startedlol-- what does the steering column have to do with it starting or not? Could she be that clueless about vehicles? Buying that truck was a vanity decision and now she's paying the price. Unreliable and ugly as sin to boot. Way to go, Jenna.
She wouldn't have to worry about vehicle repairs if she actually worked for a living.
Shes an idiot. If she's going to try to scam people out of money for non-existant truck repairs she at least needs to know something about which repairs to fake. I especially like when she gets repair suggestions instead of donations and she completely ignores them.
She must be getting desperate. Bringing out the broken truck and broken toe story. Send cash, send cash, send cash.
Well she's all gung ho about the hawk hunt yesterday so she is probably trying to come up with money to buy the hawk tracking system she mentioned last month. It was around the time she mentioned that her truck would need several hundred dollars in repairs and coincidentally the hawk equipment cost $800.
Just like when she got Friday. Root canal needed! Will cost $1,000. A few weeks later, her $1,000 puppy shows up.
Exactly Anon 12:39!
I would hate to be her nearby friend...because by now I would have to distance myself from the constant call to action under the guise of 'this is what community is all about- helping each other!'
Knowing her reputation in her town, according to locals who comment here, that friend probably doesn't even exist. She was called out on fishing for money for non existent truck repairs and she decided not to take it any further.
I'm about to send a waaaaaambulance to Jenna's "mountainside". She's really laying it on thick over on fb today...
Oh, boy. Someone sent Snowflake an email about her hair extensions. One of the responses: "Some people have WAY too much time on their hands if giving you grief about something as asinine as that is worth their while. Wow."To that I would say, Wow. Someone must have way too much (dirty) money on their hands if they buy hair extensions when the truck needs fixed, the dog needs a vet, the mortgage is behind and the power was almost cut off. Sheesh.
So...if I'm piecing this together correctly.....her truck wouldn't start due to some steering column issue (HA!). But she is in the laundromat contacting some friend about the dead truck?Something continues to smell fishy at CAF.
Earlier this week, Jenna had a little rant about working with movies on (she had been questioned about it). Now someone has sent her a hateful email about her hair extensions (supposedly). I think when she gets to be a victim it's profitable. Isn't it kind of funny that she's had two defend herself twice this week, her truck broke and the dog has a broken toe? This has played out before. Something bad happens, something else bad happens, she gets attacked in some way -- all at once. Cha-ching! This is absolutely a fundraising tactic on her part. I read an interesting book about scam artists and one of the elements of a successful scam is conning your targets into a heightened emotional state. People don't think clearly when they're upset and they're much more likely to give. Jenna is making people upset/worried for her. Her truck doesn't start, she explicitly says she's worried, Gibson's injured, then next thing she's been the victim of a nasty email. Of course some of the people following along will be thinking "Oh, that poor Jenna! If only I could help in some way...." and that's how it all goes down.Jenna Woginrich: Someone just sent me an anonymous email calling me a "fake" and "liar" for wearing hair extensions some time. WTF. I don't know an actress, public figure, vlogger, or anyone who had thin hair that doesn't wear fake hair. This is common. And calling people on it is the same as calling people out on wearing mascara for "fake lashes" or dyeing their hair as 'fake youth"Listen. You do whatever you want to do with your body that empowers you. Or makes you feel in control, sexy, or strong. Hair is just another tattoo, or dye job, or gym workout. We all augment our bodies - be it in wardrobe or skin or adornments. Stop treating people with hair, ink, holes, or dyes as lesser.
If someone on here sent her that email, please own up to it on here (anonymously, of course). Why? Because if someone from here did not send it, then 99% it does not exist. Only in Snowflake's scamming mind.
My bet- totally made up like the job app!
I guess she doesn't know me then. I have thin hair and have never worn hair extensions. Not that I care if anyone does. But when that person whines about wolves at the door ad naseum and hints/begs for donations, then why the heck is she spending money on a luxury?
Anonymous 1:22- I've always said that about her bills. If she really received disconnect or mortgage default notices, then black out the personal info and post pics of the notices showing her name, amount due and date. I don't think she could because I don't think she's behind in her bills at all, as she has everyone believe.I think Jenna gets more than enough in donations and scams (promising goods/services paid for but never sends/provides them) to pay her bills on time and pay for her asinine monthly extras.But paying your bills on time won't get you more donations. So she has to sing her sad song on a regular basis about the "wolves at the door."If people would simply ask for proof of her financial "emergencies" her scam game would be over.
Her comments about $10 entertainment and finding hair extensions necessary show how disconnected she is from budgeting or living paycheck to paycheck. The girls got more dough than she can shake a fist at.
I posted the anon 4:25 comment and you are right Meredith. She has a lot of people fooled.
Oh, man, this comment in response to Jenna's little rant about hair extensions is too good not to share. The idea that Jenna is living large is beyond preposterous. A narcissist like Jenna can only ever lead a shabby, shallow existence that revolves around one thing only: herself. I didn't send her any email but jesus lady, people pick on Jenna cause they love knocking that asshole off her pedestal. Delusional.KA: What a small life she must lead. And your life that is lived so large must cause them tremendous pain.
Jenna, I know you regularly stop here for fodder. Please please post the supposed email from the person calling you out on your fake hair. Because unless we see it we don't believe it. lol The above poster is correct in the formula she uses for caching!Soon she'll report a tooth ache, or no wood or no hay or ya the truck still isn't working. To defray from all obvious observations by the public of her poor decision making, lack of employment and ambition and poor animal husbandry we'll get the mean girl letters and emails supposedly sent to her. She loves calling herself out and shaming herself -- it takes all scrutinizing observers off the real focus and instead some will defend her because someone is being mean to her. Anyone remember her sh*tting in the woods and showering outside? This confession was made when she needed her septic tank emptied but had no $ and needed her broke pipes, that people had offered assistance with ALL winter, fixed. Again no $. Once she confessed about using the woods for her toilet and shower donations rolled in and her septic was pumped and apparently the pipes were fixed or unplugged.Same thing was used for Friday. First it was a toothache and then two tooth problems over a period of 6 months were described. No one could get a straight answer out of her what tooth, though she said several times it was a front tooth. She stated she was a public person who could not go out in front of her minions with a front tooth pulled. A 1000.00 + later in donations Friday showed up. When called out on it, it turns out she had been making payments to someone for Friday for months. She likely needed $ for the expensive shots and plane ticket it took to get Friday to CAF. Suddenly down the road she got a tooth fixed- it was a molar. So where or where did the front tooth that needed fixed go.Ya- to pay for a 2nd dog when she can't even afford Gibson. smh
How often do you need to have hair extensions replaced? Maybe "broken truck" or "broken toe" are code words for "need new hair extensions".Hair extensions need to be professional applied and require maintenance visits. Not a good idea for someone chronically broke (or who claims to be).
So yesterday I watched "Farmland," a nice piece of propaganda produced by the U.S. Farm and Ranchers Alliance. I was struck by the lone woman farmer from PA, who seemed to work about eighteen hours a day and sold her vegetables at the farmers' market on the weekends. She was tough, hardworking and focused. A real farmer.You might even call her scrappy.And while this is not a new thought to me--or to any of you, probably--watching this woman on her farm underscored how much Jenna is not a farmer, though she likes to call herself one. She's not a dairy producer (as she referred to herself as the other day on Twitter), and not only does she not qualify as a homesteader, she's barely (and maybe not even) a gardener. She is a woman who lives alone with a few animals on six acres and watches TV. She has hair extensions because she sees herself as a celebrity. She essentially says this ("I don't know an actress, public figure, vlogger, or anyone who had thin hair that doesn't wear fake hair"). I know tons of people who have thin hair who just wear hats.I wonder if she knows of any farmers or homesteaders who have hair extensions? Let's ask Wendell Berry if he wears hair extensions. Or Joel Salatin or Wes Jackson or Kristin Kimball.I don't care if she wears extensions or not. But I do care that she makes claims for herself that are so patently false as to be utterly ridiculous. And people buy it. Like most of us bought it at some point. But back in the day, while she cried wolf at the door a lot, she also seemed to be out there planting seeds. Those days are gone.To be honest, I'm just tired of living in a time where if you say "This is true," everyone nods their heads and says, "If you say it's true, it must be true." Jenna says she's a farmer, a falconer, a homesteader, a fiddler, a fiddle teacher. That's her truth.But none of it's true. And Anna Kendrick's never going to be her friend, no matter how many hawks Jenna names after her or how many times she hashtags #scrappylittlenobody. Just needed to get that off my chest. Thanks.
I think this is the source of her real problems. Years ago, I remember her doing a confessional post about being a big fan of Vogue magazine. Her mother is a big fan, and Jenna had a subscription and read every word. Nobody can live up to a comparison with Vogue models, least of all Jenna. It will leave you feeling ugly, inferior, fat, etc...I remember wondering about the real Jenna at that point. Don't get me wrong, I don't think having a model's looks make you a better person, and I don't think you should compare yourself to a magazine image, but I think Jenna does. I think she would love to have glam shots of herself with a full head of hair, perfect make-up, pseudo-medieval costume, with her black pony and hawk as props. She could plaster them all over twitter, facebook, memoirs and magazines, then someone would notice her, and she could become a celebrity.I don't think Jenna likes herself at all, and it leads to all sorts of things, like alcoholism, addiction to video games and social media, dishonesty. I don't think she would live the way she does if she could find a way out.
I think all of this is spot on, especially the last sentence!
And all the stuff about the gilmore girls like she is a tv critic now? Saying things like well "amy and dan had to end it like they wanted" like she knows the writers? So freaking bizarre. Amy and Dan OMG SMH!
Jenna is straight up nuts. Amy and Dan would file restraining orders within the first five minutes of meeting her.
Someone please remind me how Jenna Woginrich is a public person beyond the fact she herself has made herself a public spectacle by 1- creating a blog and blogging about very personal things like (using the outdoors as her toilet and shower, panhandling and sleeping naked with dogs among many other things) 2- creating public fundraisers online to fund her lifestyle 3-written 5 memoirs YES 5 memoirs about herself lol. Other than that how is she a public person? Why would a reclusive anti- social person whose friends are all strangers, or hollywood crushes need to wear hair extensions? I think she is so delusional that she forgets time and again, maybe conveniently, just who she is and what she has written online. For the most part her heathen clan is a failure, her hawking a failure, her likelihood of ever publishing another book- zilch, her ability to be taken as a serious graphic designer- epic fail and homesteader/farmer/gardener- not happening ever. She threw that entire scheme out the window with her addictions to gaming, netflix, hulu and her inability to spend donations on anything but herself. Her animals don't get vet care, her fantasy truck doesn't get real maintenance, her buildings don't get maintained, and her house is close to molding over. All so that she can get drunk, tweet to celebrities, write mean girls letters to herself and try and rationalize why she spends so much time and $ on her appearance and on her hobbies. I've said it once and I'll say it again- her fans/readers and followers and all those that enable her through donations are seriously harming her. She has gone from what I once thought was possibly a young writer writing about her early homesteading experience to a middle aged unemployed or seriously under employed internet pan handler. And with that money she has been able to fuel some serious addictions. Those who donate seem to miss or ignore her constant statements of addiction. She has stated she is addicted to television, movies, netflix, her smart phone, carbs, sugar, gaming, social media and alcohol to name a few. She is addicted to everything. Thanks to her followers she lives a life of daily addiction. It's not doing a lot of good things for her. She has become shallow, more self centered, more delusional, more paranoid and is prone to more desperate measures than ever to provoke people to worry- and donate $. It is sick to look at and I wonder if any of it will ever end. And what will that end look like to Jenna, to her enablers, family and those here?
I think Jenna was a public figure in a pretty small pond for several years after her first book was published. Made from Scratch came out two years after The Omnivore's Dilemma and a year after Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which were seminal books for the urban farming/farmer's market boom, so there was a ready audience for Jenna's work. Jenna was writing about homesteading for the Mother Earth News website as early as 2008 (and referred to as a "Modern Homesteading Expert" by said website) and began writing for Huffington Post around the same time. For a period of two or three years, she was the go-to expert on young farmers and homesteaders. Jenna was 26 when Made from Scratch came out. She was young, idealistic, and talented. Her timing was impeccable--Made from Scratch was a book that plugged right into the zeitgeist. So what happened? How did young farmer Jenna become this lonely woman on the side of the mountain who keeps insisting she's a homesteader but seems anything but?One of the reasons I come to this site is that I continue to be baffled--and, it must be said, intrigued--by the arc of Jenna's story. Imagine if she'd really built a farm or a self-sufficient homestead. Imagine if she'd continued to write seriously about raising livestock and growing her own food on six acres. Imagine if she'd taken the generously offered advice from the homesteaders and small farmers who'd been at it a lot longer than she had?But she did none of these things, and it recently occurred to me why not: Jenna isn't really a farmer or a homesteader. I don't say this critically, I'm saying this based on empirical evidence. She really seems to have very little interest in growing food or raising livestock, though she does a little of both, albeit in a way that seems more recreational than anything else.No, Jenna isn't a homesteader or a farmer; she's a world-builder. But unlike other world-builders who create their worlds in novels or movies, or immerse themselves in weekend Renaissance fairs, Jenna seems to need to live on the set of the world she's imagined. So when she got caught up in the idea of homesteading (as many of us did after reading Pollan and Kingsolver), she wasn't going to be content with a few chickens in the backyard and a plot in the community garden. No, she had to have acreage and horses and dogs and a truck (and not just any truck, but an iconic sort of truck). The reason Jenna wasn't interested in advice from other homesteaders and small farmers was because in this world of hers, she was already an experienced farmer and homesteader, even when she invested in the wrong kind of sheep for wool-producing, even when her animals kept getting killed, even when all evidence pointed to the fact she had no idea what she was doing.It's actually sort of fascinating. The problem is, Jenna built a world and now she's trapped in it. I think that's one of the reasons she's tweeting and retweeting celebs: she hopes one of them will become intrigued by her story and want to work with her in some way--whether it's make a movie about CAF or work with Jenna on a screenplay or whatever. She needs a way out of the world she's built, but she's not willing to risk obscurity. At this point, it's hard to see the story ending well. I hope I'm wrong, but it seems to me that what captured Jenna's imagination back in the day--living sustainably, growing her own food, taking care of animals--was pretty life-affirming stuff. Now it's comedy podcasts and Gilmore Girls revivals. That doesn't bode well for the future.
Anon 7:22 this is one of the most thoughtful and well written explanation of snowflake. I hope she reads this one it just might do her some good. Man did you hit the nail on the head. Shes built up a fantasy world she no longer wants but can escape.
Very very well said Anon 7:22. I was one of those with helpful advice to give. I would write and rewrite my comment for her blog, hoping to word it in such a way as to not 'offend'. Eventually I gave up and am just following along to see how this all plays out. Karen
I think it's important to point out Jenna wasn't discovered for any type of talent, success, or expertise. She never built a business. She contacted a publisher that was foolish enough to give her undeserved credibility through a trendy book.My mom read it and passed it on to be. I recall being so confused how such an idiot managed to get published I looked up the blog out of pure curiosity.Donald Trump is the president elect with no experience in politics who literally fabricates facts and experiences as he goes.Jenna is a farmer (or whatever) with no experience in farming and fabricates facts and experiences as she goes.This happens all the time.
Timing and luck in her first publisher was definitely her friend. Our 4-H club found her book on chickens at Farm & Fleet. It was being discounted and thrown in the discount bin so we could afford 5 copies. I was one of the parents that got a copy. This is truly an absolute beginner's basic book loosely put together, poorly written and short on information. The conclusion we came to was this was a book with short notes, poorly written essays about her experience not a book that was written to help others. One of the things that turned me off about the book, and caused me to change my mind about sharing it with our 4-H group was the advice she gave came from a very unlearned place.I have read reviews on her other books and it appears a lot of reviewers feel the same way about her other books. The comments above are so true- right time, right publisher and very quickly became one of the first to speak on homesteading at the time. Unfortunately before too long much more learned and experienced people came forward and by comparison we could see, and still do that Jenna stopped learning, stopped growing and has now traveled down a whole other path of celebrity worship and almost a complete submersion into social media and Netflix.
Monday mornin from Cold Antler Faam!Well me thinks Mundaze be the most depressin day of the week and Iz agrees. Cee the brewree be closed tonight, all my fiernds who start my truck and pile me y wood have to actually go to work. Not mee's! Yessir I gots some chores, throw some hay around and give the critters water, clean the dookie off my shoes and make some more bitchin coffee, and an fuk, I gotta put up another "Come on in" and Logo sale for da community. But fuk you, my hawk caught me two 1 ounce rabbit legs that I will braise in bourbon and then sandwich between bacon grown write on this faam!!!! I'm a word faamers suckas, now let me plow the internet to harvest some more spring greens! Forgot - Gibby broke his toe, I was sick on Turkey Day, winter is almost here and people be criticizing me - think about that and consider supporting this here FAAM!
"Jenna Woginrich: Here's an idea! Instead of being a critic of movies, books, art, and plays already created - how about you write some essays about or create the art YOU WANT beforehand."Haha - Anon 6:29, you are the Queen of Creative Writing!
(Anonymous at 6:29) That almost made me choke on my coffee. Thanks for the Monday merriment.
Earlier than I expected, Jenna has morphed into a bitter middle aged woman whose entire existence is ruled by her addictions. Booze, tv, movies, video games and being on the internet (twitter/fb) 24/7. There isn't anything in her life right now that is worth blogging about. As long as she has her animal props, she'll be able to fool some people. But as far as living out her original dream and purpose...forget it.This will continue to downward spiral into more bitterness, more addictive behavior, and more entitled begging. The only way she will change is if she hits rock bottom...I wonder when that will happen.
Unfortunately, it will never end. There are always fools and enablers around. Plus, her stable of sycophantic fans.
Snowflake posted a pic on Twitter of an axe with an elaborately carved handle stuck in a log next to a wood pile. She said someone sent her the pic and said it reminded them of Jenna. Jenna in turn said that's the exact vibe she's trying to put out there (eye roll).When I saw it, it reminded me of Jenna too- because she is a total whack job.
Puke. I don't think Snowflake could chop wood if her life depended on it. Unlike the many homesteaders and homesteading writers whose lives she pretends to have.
I agree. Based on that photo of her making the muscleman pose, Jenna doesn't look physically fit at all. She couldn't handle the exertion of chopping her own wood. Hell, I bet she can barely stack it.
I have a suggestion. I've sent this site's link to several of her supporters, so that they can see the truth about JW. If others do the same, it will help spread the word.
Thanks! It might be a small suggestion, but it could influence some of her supporters.
I did a google search on cost of hair extensions. Here is a sampling:"The bad news: Hair extensions aren't cheap. Depending on how much you get, how you get them attached and the type/grade of hair you use, the cost can range from the hundreds to the thousands of dollars — and that's not including maintenance every six to eight weeks.""How much does it cost? Olmedo says her extension styles start at $275, plus $60 for each additional track she sews in. Antonelli says keratin bond extensions cost between $800 and $1,400 because stylists add between 80 and 150 pieces of tiny human hair stands throughout the hair""If you are looking for something long term you will spend between $200-$2000 at the salon for application, plus maintenance every 2-3 months (***does not include the cost of hair)."" Hair Extension Costs In Salons *Averages* (Does not include cost of hair)$ Clip Extensions Applied and Cut By Stylist: $100-$200.$ Sewn In Hair $100-$400 $$ Tape Extensions $200-$800."Maybe her begathons are not for truck repairs or vet bills, but her salon maintenance costs.
Maybe... but you can get hair extensions at Target for 40 bucks.
Yeah, seems unlikely. If she'd spent a lot of money I think the outcome would look a lot better than it does. Just by looking at the pics, I'd guess she's just getting some cheapies to make the length look fuller.
I think her latest begathon is to raise money to buy the $800 hawk tracking system. Jenna should spend the money on a mental health evaluation and some psych meds.
Her extensions are terrible quality, and don't even match her hair. I doubt they are done professionally. They are most likely clip in extensions which will run you depending on how many anywhere from $20-$140. I'm guessing hers are on the lower end as it doesn't appear to be a full set.
They are probably Dollar Store extensions by the look of them.
Jenna said via Twitter that the new movie Moana was fantastic.So she is worried about her truck not starting but spent money to go to the movies.Basically she thinks that her readers are morons and she doesn't have to bother hiding how frivolous she is with money because they will just donate to her anyway. How does she continue to get away with that?
lol did she take in the matinee? You know, all the farmers I know definitely go to the movies in the middle of the day. What an idiot-- it was such a nice day today. You can't tell me she couldn't have found a better use of her time around her "farm" before winter sets in.She spends so much money on non-essentials. I'm not a total hard ass or anything, not by any means, but she can NOT say no to herself! She just spends, spends, spends. $10 for a movie is a LOT if you're actually broke. And at the rate she's going to the movies it really adds up. Seriously, she just indulges herself non-stop-- she's always got a new book, new album or is going to the movies. And it's not enough to get the new book, she's happy to shell out for the audiobook versions in duplicate. Easy come, easy go I guess. So disgusting to think of people sending her money thinking it's for her injured dog or a goat she's supposedly scraping up the money for. No, people, you're money is being used to facilitate an ungrateful entertainment addict.
Tomorrow she's going hunting with the hawk again. What a frivolous waste of time. Just so the hawk can catch measly prey that it could totally catch in the wild without Jenna. Summers spent in the river and winters so far spent hunting for hawk food. I hope someone reminds that jackass how she wasted so much time on such idiotic pursuits the next time she is "worried" about paying for something. Jenna, you suck.
Jenna via Twitter:"You don't have to be a falconer to buy these handmade goods. Pineo makes AMAZING gloves packs, & more here in the US https://t.co/2h6wfkYGZJ"Holy shit the hawk stuff is expensive. Once again, how could anyone donate money to Jenna to pay her bills, truck repairs, dentist visits, etc. when she posts things like this showing how expensive her worthless hobby is?
Why on earth would anyone want any of those items if they weren't a falconer? You wouldn't wear leather gauntlets casually or carry a game bag as some kind of fashion statement.
Jenna probably meant you don't have to be a falconer to buy this stuff for HER
That's exactly what she meant anon 6:47. She even tweeted after that the exact item she wanted. She's not bashful when it comes to begging- that's for sure!
Oh, you're sharp Anon 7:47! I thought it was strange to begin with and then she adds the bit about what she would like including size. JFC she's shameless. Gimme, gimme, gimme. There's no reason anyone would want anything from that company UNLESS they're into falconry.
Still posting her wish list? Shameless.
When I see her ebegging like that, with what she thinks are "subtle" hints, I feel embarrassed for her. Her lack of morals and self respect are mind boggling.
Wow, a three year old has more self-restraint. Someone call Supernanny!!!
I'm sure that she already has a public wish list on Amazon.
And human hair extensions are the only thing current on the first one I found.She has another wish list 2 pages long.https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/search
I guess the rogaine didn't work. Remember when one of the dogs ate some of the rogaine? She is so utterly irresponsible.
Jenna via Twitter:Well, 45 minutes into Imperium and this is the scariest movie I have seen in years.Jenna is watching yet ANOTHER movie!!! Hello donors! Do you see how lazy Jenna is and what a waste of your hard earned money it is to donate to her?!
Oh, boy this excerpt from a recent blog comment is RICH! Too bad Anne wasn't on the scene when Jenna ordered the third party voters off her feed not once but twice. She just keeps luring in the suckers, doesn't she?"I think you mentioned in one recent post that you made political statements and "offended" some readers. That makes me sad, and I want to comment about that. First of all, please remind yourself that, as far as I can tell from what I have read of your work so far, you are not a judging or "I have the only truth" kind of person. You write in an inviting, accepting way, saying, "here is my truth, here I am trying to live my truth" and you don't attack or reject anyone. So it is sad to me that others would do that to you. Try to ignore them!"
So I think it is safe to say, and I would hope I would get no argument from her fans, that there is very little to no homesteading going on anymore at CAF. It would seem property values are going down in Cambridge or maybe just at CAF. Under ownership information it has a Vermont address for Jenna, weird. Did she used to live in VT. Seems weird the address you may once have been at is used on a property tax site as ownership information. The property was purchased in 2010 for 158000 and was just assessed for property tax 2016-FMV 86,571. Just quickly going down her Facebook I see 2- 6 hour Gilmore Girls marathons, Zootopia, Moana (went to theater), Frozen in 40 hours.If she sleeps 6 hours a night that leaves 28 hours. In the 28 hours left 18 went to watching the movies, I'm assuming she had to drive at least an hour to see Moama leaving just 9 hours in almost 2 days (4.5 each day) to hawk hunt, feed props and eat, drink, and be merry. But wait- she posted 23 times on FB during that 40 hour time period and 28 times with some new photos on Twitter in that time. If each post or tweet takes 1 minute to post then at least one more hour for social media. This changes the roughly nine hours left after her consumption of movies to 8 hours left for two days to eat, sleep or ? From midday on the 25th to midday today that means about 2.5 hours each day for actual work and/or anything homesteading related. smh
You summed up exactly what I was thinking.Sad that she's wasting most of her waking hours not living an authentic life.
In Missouri, the only properties that have a different mailing address from the property assessed are those that are owned and rented out. That is strange that her property is listed that way. Google search the VT address and see what name shows up. My curiosity is piqued.
What state do her parents live in? Wouldn't that be the ultimate scam if mommy bought/co-signed on the house and Jenna pocketed all the $$$ people gave her for the down payment.
JW used to live in Vermont, I assume at the address listed on the tax assessment document (that I'm looking at). I don't think there's anything nefarious going on. Probably they plugged that address in when she first bought the place and have never corrected it. Your super-efficient government at work.....
Her parents live in PA. I'm sure the family gave up on helping her YEARS ago.
For tax assessment purposes, they use 50% of the market value.
Ah ok. That's not how they do it here. I guess every place is different- they don't use the address we were at when we bought our place. Ownership address is either the present address or where we are currently living if not at the place we pay property taxes for. Other states we've lived in have been the same. I googled the address and it looked like a house in town. Thanks for your response.
Anon 10:47, same with where we live. If the mailing address is different from the property address it's because the owners rent the property out and live at another address. They don't put the address the owner was at when they purchased the property.
I think what's even more telling with your list is that they are mostly children's programs. I always found it very strange how quickly she flits from edgy, hard adult stuff to animated child friendly stuff. So creepy.
Creepy is a great word to describe Jenna.
We live a town or two away from Jenna and we are at 100% assessment of market value for taxes. I don't know about Jackson.
Jenna Woginrich @coldantlerfarm"Short hunt. Caught a fat vole 5 mins in. I nearly lost her with that meal. She took off & had to throw out lure to get her back. Lesson learned."Yep. Just as I predicted, she really wants that hawk tracking equipment. She will either mention it in hopes someone buys it ($800!) or come up with an expensive emergency to get donations.Yet another animal prop she wants to keep around because she thinks it gives her coolness points. Smh.
You are absolutely right. We've all been reading her blog long enough to know her MO.Let's see. We have Gibson's broken toe, broken truck, a link to a falconry supply website and a near loss of the hawk.Dear Jennafans - Jenna wants a new toy but she wants you to buy it for her.
she can add the vole to the half eaten rabbit in the freezer. Hardy, badass, rebel, huntress, farming, mountain girl eats the equivelent of roadkill. Yum.
That is really disgusting that she let the hawk chew on the rabbit, eat part of it and then kept what's left for herself. But what do we expect from someone who has hawk shit on her walls, rarely showers, puts dirty jeans in the freezer to "clean" them and shits in the woods rather than pay to have her septic system maintained. She really is stomach churning.
Tyr's Good Hand meetup Dec. 3. So far two are going. Down to 5 members excluding JW.
And don't forget she's adding throwing an innocent reader to the wolves to generate sympathy. This on her latest blog post comments, where she asked for comments because it helps her to hear from strangers on the internet:Blogger hart said...Poor Gibson, a broken toe and you can't even tape it to the next toe like people do..November 28, 2016 at 5:59 PMBlogger Jenna Woginrich said...hart? why the hell would you assume that my dogs aren't getting medical attention? Because I didn't write about it in detail?! Creeps.November 29, 2016 at 1:08 AMWhat an asshole move for her to let that comment through, then deliberately misunderstand it and lash out at hart when they can't defend themselves. That comment is obviously sympathetic, not critical, using "you" in the universal, any person sense, i.e. "one cannot tape a broken toe to another toe on a dog, which humans are able to do to provide some relief when humans have a broken toe." So what, 1 a.m., just finished a movie, drunk, and scheming. She will never allow any evidence through that she was wrong much less apologize because she is using it as another piece in the scamming puzzle to get her $800 tracking thing for her hawk who doesn't need her help to catch and eat rodents.
Me thinks Jenna doth protest too much! We assume he's not getting medical attention because no one has donated money to cover it. Also, isn't this the third time he has had a broken toe? Jenna, maybe he wouldn't have three incidents of breaking his toe had you had it treated and wrapped the FIRST time! My guess is that it's the same toe each time. If it's not, she needs to do some landscaping because he is obviously stepping in holes or uneven ground to have THREE broken toes.We assume you haven't sought medical treatment for Gibson because you are a narcissistic hag who saves any extra cash to pay for entertainment and hair extensions.
Wow I really can't believe she did that. It is so obvious hart was posting sympathetically that dogs' toes cannot be taped together. Not at ALL implying anything other than that. Drunk, indeed. JW = jerk wad
And another thing... LOL Do you think she would ever, EVER in a million years (having probably already realized her own misinterpretation) apologize (gasp!) to hart??? I'm so pissed. I hope hart comes over here.
Jenna knows damn good and well that she does not provide decent care for ANY of her animals. I hope someone calls animal control if she keeps posting about their injuries. Her ebegging via asking for money to cover vet bills could end up biting her in her fat ass.
Yes because you didn't write about it in detail. You brought it up, you should have followed up. She has absolutely no problem talking about movies in details, or her obsession and stalking of celebrities. creeps
From Jenna's blog: " I think Gibson has a broken toe. There is nothing for it other than rest and pain meds. "Why would Hart assume her dog was not getting medical attention? Because Jenna said so.
Apparently, JW ass-holery is just going to escalate as the CAF ship slips further down into the sea of neglect she floats it on, rudderless and without a competent, adult captain at the helm. I think she's starting to get the drift of "things", the arc of her pretend, insufficiently supported or thoughtfully steered LIFE - and nasty lashing out along with proudly announcing her addictive behavior is surfacing more often. Sick trapped animal, claws out - rather than slinking off quietly under a bush and giving in to the end of things, with dignity. Heaven knows she'll never just show up for once and dig in with steady, outside work - or even create a set-up for going freelance - or actually create and sell something with real value to people. Cartoon animal postcards! Good Lord. Talk about over-valuing her useless, juvenile, unprofessional crap - and undervaluing what she might actually be able to do to legitimately support her shell of a stage-set lifestyle.And really, I could hardly stand her less than I do already. Just remembered our old fav, non-existent, sucky money-grabbing/stealing work of fiction: Birchthorn. Think I'll trot on over to Kickstarter and see if she's added yet another lying gem of an update since I was last there a few months ago.
I looked just now, and the last update was in October. I guess that the over $15,000 was spent on cheap hair extensions, hipster kilts, expensive jeans, and albums. I also include attending new movies, buying books, and probably eyebrow products. Whoever donates to this faux farmer is delusional. She is despicable.
Jenna's dog comic strip is really bad. She doesn't make sense at all. Keep chugging that booze Jenna- Glug,Glug, Glug!
How many people with dogs have had them break their toes. How many have broken toes multiple times? In my experience of having more dogs for longer I've had no dogs break toes. Several issues with nails but not toes. What about you all?The Berkman contest she won was specifically to invest in the winners farms. It clearly stated it not be used for mortgage or rent. Too bad they didn't require updates. What has Jenna invested in?
I'm 45 years old and have had dogs since I was a toddler. I have never had a dog with a toe injury if any kind.Many of my dogs lived long lives. My first dog, a cairn terrier, who I grew up with lived to be 18.
Meredith, I'm almost 59 and have had dogs almost my entire life, including farm dogs (I grew up on a farm). In my memory I've never had a dog with a broken toe, either. One with a nail problem, like you had, but never a broken toe. And yes, you're right! What about that Beekman money to be invested in the farm? Someone should call her out on that on Facebook. (But prepared to be banned.) Duckmama
But don't you people forget, if you're daring to compare Gibson to an ordinary, indoor - or outdoor leashed - house pet - who may not ever have suffered a broken toe: Gibson Special Snowflake is a highly-trained WORKING border collie, with a large flock to manage daily - moving them over rocky, treacherous, side-of-(this)MOUNTAIN terrain, guiding thundering, heavy-footed sheep from "this farm's" Upper Mountain Ledge Pasture to the our Broken Brick Lowlands, over acres and acres and acres of hardscrabble land, with broken glass and junk and gopher holes all over the damn place; then he's got the bi-monthly road & forest fetching from our open/broken/non-existent fencing. It's a tough life out here in the middle of nowhere, and being single, he is my Everything. It's easy to break toes and shit.Sheesh...you imagine he mostly lies around and I go after his toes with a hammer or a frozen book or pair of dirty jeans? I don't even have a damn hammer. Why in hell would I even need one? He is a herding hero, without whom I could not begin to run THIS farm - and it's a dangerous life my brave prince leads.
Gibson is definitely the herding hero of this faux farm. What a delusional dipshit she is.
Life long dog owner-- no broken toes. And yup, they're farm dogs. I don't trust her to diagnose any animal issues, she's clueless.
I'm in my 60s, lifelong dog owner and active in many different dog sports including sheep herding. I've never had a dog with a broken toe and I never heard of any of my dog friends dog's having a broken toe.
LOL Anon 3:01! Now Im picturing Jenna as Kathy Bates in the movie Misery. Instead of hobbling her favorite author, Paul, she's hobbling poor Gibson to try to get donations!
I grew up on the farm my husband and I are now farming and have been for 32 years. We have 2 Border Collie's age 8, 10 respectively who herd 100 sheep and 50 milk cows each day. We live in rocky terrain, have gopher holes galore, gravel roads and many sharp and hard objects (rocks) in our soil and pastures. We've always had Border Collie's here. When I was growing up my Dad raised German Shepherd's for the local police and state patrol. My brother and I helped with some of the training as young adults. He is now the K-9 officer for our Sheriff's Dept. In all the years I've lived on this farm- 54 years and with probably over a 100 dogs none of them have ever broken a toe or cut a toe pad. I asked my brother about his present and past K-9's and none ever had broken toes. Gibson- cut toe pad 6/14; cut toe pad 8/15 (both times photos taken with paw bandaged in vet's office or with vet's address to send payment). Because as we all know she also expects her readers to pay for all vet bills. Then 3/2015 Gibson sprained his hip?; 7/2014 positive rare tick borne disease? and then not positive? I liked this statement she made when she found out he was negative for tick disease- " I am a very religious person, devout as all get out." Also twice bills were paid fully by a reader and twice Jenna put up the ole wool hat to assist with vet bills. She also tried the torn paw pad on Friday 5/2016. On FB from 2013 to now, the entire time I've followed her, Gibson has had 3 broken toes. So Gibson has had at least 7 emergencies in 2 years time. I observe all of this as carelessness, recklessness and neglect by the owner and Gibson pays for it. She doesn't know how to take care of land, livestock, dogs or home. Taking care of herself-- well she self medicates, is a shopaholic and movie addict. Though she is prone to tooth problems. Wink Wink
The hawks first rabbit? How the hells bells does Jenna know what she hunted before being trapped and held captive?
I was disappointed she was able to get the hawk back earlier today. The more she discusses hawking, the more I'm certain her last hawk met an unfortunate end. She was explaining to someone that hawks often fly off, yet she never says that's what happened to Anna Kendrick. If she had simply flown away there'd be no reason to conceal that.
Talking about falconry on a blog that solicites donations is illegal. Which is why way back when she said on the blog she couldn't discuss falconry.Furthermore using her hawk as a fiddle workshop advertisement is also illegal. (See the talons on the fiddle blog post)I imagine She thinks she's above the law now. I've sent an email to the feds, will you?http://highstfarm.blogspot.com/2016/11/falconry-regulations_29.html?m=1
Awesome Meredith! Yes, I will!
Meredith, I'll report her too. But the amount of information on that site was overwhelming. I don't process well that way. Could you please post either a phone number or email address? I appreciate your efforts, thanks.
There needs to be a Free The Animals Of Cold Antler Farm Facebook page. Those poor creatures have a lousy life.
I wonder if Munchausen by proxy syndrome, where people make their children sick for attention, could happen with pets? If so, Jenna Woginrich can add that to her current list of mental disorders.
I was thinking of the same disorder in the midst of dreaming up her imagined whiny query about hitting Gibby on the toe with frozen jeans or a hammer!I think, though, that she's more into weaving tall tales for the sake of donations rather than purposely harming the animals. Surely there is significant, ongoing endangerment by way of shoddy overall management, attention, exercise, and taking care of safety issues. Heaven only knows about the level of preventative care and nutrition she provides - likely at the bare minimum, as substandard and haphazard as everything else she does.Because appearance, getting attention and likes, pop culture/celebs, panhandling, and every sort of media saturation 16 hrs/day - is where it's at for her. What animals? What crops? Oh, the horse is real? Living in my back yard? Oops, haha. Well, ya know, he's not really into me, so I don't hang with him much. He's kind of just stubborn and annoying and, like I said, he doesn't seem to enjoy having me on his back and wandering up our mountain. Ingrate. I mostly just like an excuse to wear my cool kilt, anyway, and being able to say I did and he's mine.Poor Merlin.
I feel the same way too. The adults that choose to donate who are fully aware of her scams feel free to keep pouring your retirements into someone else's addictions.Those that have been scammed by Birchthorn or wool shares or logos etc. I feel for those people because willingly or not some thought they would get what they paid for. She cannot hide anymore or make excuses or wave people off and call them meanies. She is a scammer and a liar and knew exactly what she was doing with Birchthorn.I feel the most sad for her animals. She doesn't hide her neglect, and she doesn't hide the fact they are all really just props to her ever changing narrative. I live just a few miles down the road and can attest to the general care, or lack thereof of the animals at CAF. They do not have proper shelters, their broken down shelters are maybe, maybe cleaned x1 a year if a friend (Miriam or Patty) take pity on the animals, they are fed hay. The pigs used to get garden scraps, but there hasn't been a garden for years. Besides the occasional scraps they get apples that fall down and hay. The chickens or any other fowl she has eat bugs off the ground and? Years ago I saw her buying chick feed, but I haven't heard of her buying feed for her chickens since about 2014. They fly around loose they are not kept in pens or coops. Her sheep and goats get hay and when they break out they travel to her neighbor's yard and eat grass. The grass in her basically dead pasture is not sufficient by anyone's standards. Merlin stands out in a small area with a lean to day in and day out. He used to get some exercise with the cart or her riding. I think she rides him about 3-4 times a year now and that is usually in the spring of the year. He stands with his head down lonely and forgotten. In the winter he stands there covered in snow and ice from head to tail while she sits inside binge-watching Netflix likely drunk every night. She is unable to even get him out of his little area in the winter once the ground freezes because the shit is so high and frozen right into the gate. Many many people in the area know what kind of person she is. She hasn't really fooled anyone that I have heard talking about her.
Yep. Not a farmer, not hip, not trendy at all. She's lame. Stale. Over.
Anon 9:27 your post breaks my heart. I have a real love for animals (and have owned many types, and still do). The tears are streaming down my face now for Merlin, especially, and all the others that came to an untimely, horrific death under her neglectful hand.
Can animal control be called about Merlin? If his gate freezes shut every winter that can't be safe, what if there's an emergency? I feel so sad for Merlin. A beautiful horse wasted on an unappreciative idiot that treats him like a prop in one of her fantasy novels.
Is there a way to see pics of her "farm", maybe via Google street view?
It can't hurt to call animal control. If everything is OK with the animals then no harm. If it's not then thank goodness for the call.I would wait until it's snowed fairly heavily and temps are really low. So that when they see them without the proper shelters in those conditions, they will be more likely to do something.
Someone local needs to call and get involved. Animal control isn't going to take it seriously when people 500 miles away are calling with claims that sound like gossip.
Yes, the person who is local who posted about the horrible conditions would be a good person to call. Someone who has seen it all in person.
Agreed. It needs to be someone local. I'm hoping this winter is when the tides turn for those poor animals.
I agree it needs to be a local person. Someone who has never been to that area won't have much credibility. Also, she may have enough friends left in the area who would start a gofundme for legal fees, like Jon Katz or Patty. I wish like hell that she would sell or give away all her animals. I wish she would give Merlin to Patty, who at least takes care of her own animals.
Someone local should take pics of the hovel that is CAF. Possible future donors/victims of Jenna's could see what a dispicable person she is and how she doesn't put one red cent towards the care of her animals.
The only shelter that Ag & Markets require for livestock is a windbreak. That could be considered a fence or line of trees. Since Merlin has a run-in shelter, he is covered under the law. He would have to show signs of physical neglect for an ACO to do anything. I will check the local statutes though. I will ask the local ACO if the windbreak law applies to horses.
Anon 10:19 do you know if sheep and goats standing in two feet of poop would be considered animal neglect under the law? Or are they lax when it comes to livestock?
I've often wondered how her pigs can be the quality pork she touts? She is only one person, so even if she had garden scraps, it wouldn't be much. It's not hard to imagine her feeding them the bare minimum/cheapest food to get them to butchering weight. I've noticed that she's having a difficult time selling her spring shares. I'm hoping that the quality of pork was so bad that she doesn't have any repeat customers. One can hope...
Jenna via Twitter:"@PatrickRothfuss @Lin_Manuel Darlings, we saw this coming. We are excited, proud, and validated in our love for your minds and worlds. GO!"When Jenna calls someone "darling" it makes my stomach churn. It is creepy and condescending all at the same time.
I agree, especially about the creepiness factor. It's meant to suggest that a relationship exists, and moreover it's a peer-to-peer relationship. It's another way Jenna attempts to claim ownership and primacy. Patrick Rothfuss and Lin Manuel Miranda are now hers, darlings.Jenna is still relatively young, but at what point does this move into the realm of point of no return weirdness? As in "that creepy old lady that lives in that falling down shack with all the birds and animal bones"? At what point do all her beloved celebrities put out restraining orders? (And who's this "we" and how did they see this partnership coming?)
Also, why "validated in our love"? Did she somehow feel her late-to-the-party love for LMM and "Hamilton" was invalid? Have people been asking her, "How could you possibly love him? Everyone knows he's a loser! To hell with all those Tonys--your love has no validity!"Her inability to write clearly suggests an inability to think clearly.
She's also done the "darling" crap on Reddit, too. It comes across as condescending and demeaning. Frankly, it's flabbergasting, that she doesn't realize how pathetic her lame tweets appear.
I've always thought that she has some form of autism because of her lack of social skills. She tries way too hard and it's embarrassing.
Snowflake tweeted a pic of Gibson laying on a bench in her shack. He has one leg hanging down and it looks caked in mud. She tweeted within the last few days about how the snow had melted and left behind a lot of mud.She doesn't wipe off her mud soaked dog when he comes in from outside? Not surprising for someone who has hawk shit on her walls but still. Jenna is just dirty and gross.
What is with these people? Bamboozling is her one true talent. Smedette @Smedette @coldantlerfarm Do you run a summer camp for adults? This Oregonian would seriously consider the trip to see you and the farm.
And I'd pay good money to see the look on this person's face when they see the reality of "this farm."
Wear your waders because you will be swimming in shit!
A summer camp for adults? That sounds as "special" as Snowflake.I can only imagine her answer:"Why yes, I'm offering a three hour summer camp for $1300. Payment is due now and the camp will take place in the summer of 2025. You will have to shit in the woods and will need to bring your own roll of toilet paper. You will also need to sign a confidentiality clause. (And yes a confidentiality clause written in crayon is legally binding)."Hope to see you there darlings,Jenna
She just tweeted a Scottish crest for CAF. Like her logos, it is terrible. What animal, that has a rack of horns, has sharp fang-like teeth? Have another drink, Jenna.
She's having another meltdown because someone "disrespected" Obama on her page. Can you imagine how tedious she must be in person? The tiniest disagreements, real or imagined, cause such a terrific overreaction in her. And it's not just politics. You didn't think Gilmore Girls was great? How DARE you criticize the Creative Class! Zootopia was too preachy? You gotta problem with the anti-racist message??Imagine preferring to go through life without opposing viewpoints or opinions presented to you. A monotonous echo chamber of bland approval and agreement. So, so unhealthy.
She sure reminds me of someone else who has social media meltdowns on a regular basis because he can't stand opposing views, or rules or written law.
Jenna Woginrich@thelaurengraham I absolutely loved the book and especially appreciated the parts on writing. Thank you so much, and please write more......so she's already plowed through Lauren Graham's book which came out on Nov.29? Kindle $14.99. This is the fourth celeb memoir she's bought just lately. Don't anyone for a second think she's hurting for money. When you see how often she goes to the movies and buys books and music-- those are not the spending habits of a broke person. She's either lying about her financial situation or extremely reckless.
Shes lying. She makes more than enough money through donations and scams. I bet that she's never behind on bills. But she has to perpetuate the whole wolves at the door myth to get more pity donations.
