    What a sad, sad day!! As times get tougher and with the weather patterns we are having that could cause a huge problem finding enough forage, you will see more and more horses ending up at the slaughter houses.

    I’m in the US and what I’m really afraid of is that this insane amnesty that this crooked government is trying to push through would help some of the ranchers here to eventually start raising horses like cattle for human consumption. Because the Mexicans eat horse meat when they can get it. Because in at least one of the Mexican slaughter plants they were serving it to their workers for lunch. With the huge rise in legal immigration that this bill will cause in less than ten years I put nothing past these crooks. If there was a market or a demand for horse meat by the immigrants I have no doubt this crooked senate would accommodate if they could.

    It’s far from over, and in my heart I still believe this will stop, now on the other side of the coin their is so much corruption and money swapping hands in this, that I am very worried and sick to my stomach…. BUT I HAVE to keep hoping that TRUTH & JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL….. WE all stand together to FIGHT this horrible inhumane slaughter, right!!!!!! 🙂
