Prayers and Bewares: Fires, Storms & Brandy Woolums

A powerful windstorm swept through my area Tuesday night, and I am still picking up debris and repairing damage. The National Weather Service called it a "heat burst." We had very little warning. Farmers in my area have lost barns, silos, outbuildings and cows. Some people had major roof damage and small fires. My thoughts go out to these people, especially farmer Krause. In the past dozen years, he had a barn struck by lightening, killing all his milk cows in the process, his wife passed away, he broke his leg, he lost a field of wheat to a fire during the drought last year, and now this.

When I see what happened to others, I'm quite happy to deal with my broken fences, ripped-off shed roofing, a wagon that got blown into the pasture, and other "small stuff."

Prayers should also be directed to those folks in Wisconsin and Minnesota still fighting the wildfires that are ripping through thousands of acres. The National Guard and Red Cross are helping, and firefighters are working their butts off, but the fires are not nearly contained yet. Scary. Reminds me of the Great Peshtigo Fire, though of course that one was far, far worse.





Speaking of disasters, BEWARE of Brandy Nichole Woolums. She lives at 1728 Birchwood Street #3, Delavan, WI  53115. She is 27 years old (born 1986) and 6 feet tall. She is originally from Skandia, MI. She has a young daughter, who may have the last name "Blum." Woolums commonly uses aliases, which have in the past included Jade, Brandi or Brandie Williams, Nikki Knight and Nichole O'Connor. Her online aliases are too many to list, but have included Smokinsmart1, wickedlysweet, nikki b, Jade, and CrystalraneX. She has resided in Baraboo, Lake Geneva and Bristol, WI as well as Illinois in the past..

Brandy's favorite scheme is to sell tack... but never actually ship it. She will ask you to pay via Paypal and send the money as a "gift" payment type. She will probably give you some sob story about how doing this saves her money that would otherwise go to sellers fees, and she and her fatherless little girl really need every dime, etc.

Once you send the "gift," Brandy pockets the cash and never mails you the stuff. Because you sent the money as a "gift," you aren't eligible for Paypal buyer protection and you will NOT be able to get a refund or open a claim against her.

Brandy was recently involved in a lawsuit where it appears she "bought" horses, never actually finished paying for them, and was attempting to resell them. Brandy may also be involved in welfare fraud. I can't confirm this, but it is reported that she was convicted of fraud and animal cruelty in Illinois. She has been evicted from at least one boarding facility and at least one apartment building for non-payment of rent.

Woolums has owned, and may still own, the brown AQHA filly Eyed Be Smokin Smart, barn name Cinder or Cinders.

Brandy is an "adult model/actress" and "dancer" and may be working at a strip club. She describes herself as "bi-sexual." She may be moving to Florida.

That's all for now folks. Stay tuned for more.

  6. She is currently facing charges for two counts of theft of movable items under 2500. and trying to raise money for a foal she is trying to "rescue" she is very bad news. Not to mention she brags about all the guns she has and carries but is a felon and NOT ALLOWED to have. Avoid, avoid avoid Brandy Nicole

  7. I personally know this person. She has her CCW. She is not a felon. She wouldn't be able to buy said guns if she was. Where do you see she is a felon?

    As for "stealing" a horse, look on CCap. Horse is hers.

    A bunch of this is pissed off people stirring the rumor mill.

  8. Actually, no she is not allowed to own a fire arm due to a conviction in Illinois. The guns belong to her boyfriend. And fyi, Illinois records are now available online

  9. The IL conviction was pled down to a misdemeanor by the DA. I didn't steal a horse. This is all B.S. I have my concealed carry in WI. They do a FEDERAL check. Well aware IL now has records online. If you were to actually LOOK, your so called *felony* isn't as such.

  12. This Brandy girl is ripping people off left and right on tack selling/trading pages on Facebook. Pathetic.

  13. This Lady sounds like a piece of crap, who has nothing else better to do then rip people off & think she is going to get away with it. My question is why is this Brandi lady using different names on different fb groups and what not? People need to block this fruit cake and protect your self from idiots like her! Karma is a bitch " Brandi" remember that..

  14. so Brandy Nicole what about all the money you have taken for sold Tack??? Surely ALL these people from all over are not just out to tarnish your name???

  15. Brandy is a piece of crap. Many of us in the horse industry know her, and she's a lying thief. She lies about EVERYTHING -- from her name, to her children, to where she's from, to where she lives, to what she does for a living. Just so everyone knows, she is also an escort in the Milwaukee/Madison area. I am sure if she counts on her looks to make a living, then it's no wonder why she's stealing and ripping off all the rest of us honest people in the horse community.
