I'm MAD as @#%% and very upset!!!!!!
While we were stuffing ourselves over the Thanksgiving holiday, Prez Obama was signing a law which will now allow horse slaughter, once again, here in the U.S. Yes, I understand those who argue that sending horses to slaughter in Mexico or Canada is inhumane, but so is horse slaughter in the good ol' U.S. of A. Horse slaughter is INHUMANE, wherever it is. PERIOD. And, our mustangs are in great danger. Mustangs like Scout and Cali, who are my two most sensitive horses. You cannot BELIEVE the number of people I've had up to the ranch for some "horse time" and the ones they enjoy the most are the two mustangs. They are exremely sensitve to peoples' emotions and they KNOW when somebody needs their love and attention. And, they freely give it. And, for me to even THINK that their herd mates or siblings will be slaughtered just SICKENS ME. I cannot say it more forcefully. I don't really have anything else to say except that I'm begging you to do whatever YOU can do to stop this. ENOUGH is ENOUGH! Thank you for allowing me to vent. I seriously have nightmares over this issue. Here's a link to an article discussing this horrid turn of events: http://technorati.com/lifestyle/article/obama-legalizes-horse-slaughter-for-human/ Just LOOK at these pictures from last weekend of my friend Susan with the two mustangs...and think of other mustangs that will now go to slaughter...
