    Animal hoarding is a sickness and we need to identify these people before the situations become this dire. Authorities are notoriously reluctant and slow to respond to these situations and prevent...

    She is truly delusional. Definitely went to the PR school of "if I say it, it is so".

    And she wonders why she has no credibility??
  3. Bluey, can you ever use facts to support your...

    Bluey, can you ever use facts to support your anti-animal welfare agenda?

    The legitimate animal welfare folks who worked with HSUS after Katrina give rave (and accurate) reviews of their help...
  4. Amen Frizzle.

    Amen Frizzle.
  5. WOW. I definitely think an extra-strength tinfoil...

    WOW. I definitely think an extra-strength tinfoil hat is in order.

    Again, portraying a mainstream animal welfare organization as extreme, so people won't support their positions is transparent to...
  6. AMEN! Bluey's transparent attempts to...

    AMEN!

    Bluey's transparent attempts to marginalize those of us who legitimately care about animal welfare as animal rights extremists is a very tired tactic, used by those who cling to the status...

    *head desk head desk*

    You missed the point. I wasn't speaking of a singular breeding (which was pretty clear), I was speaking of the practice of taking a stallion and breeding to a herd of mares,...
  8. The problem is there will never be 'local...

    The problem is there will never be 'local abbatoirs'. That model isn't profitable, hence why it hasn't happened. The profitable model is factory horse slaughter and the North American market will...
  9. Thanks for that. There is abuse in the slaughter...

    Thanks for that. There is abuse in the slaughter pipeline, though not all horses are at the receiving end. I've had non-horse trucker friends call me from truckstops to tell me horror stories about...
  10. Agreed. And I'm not proposing they should either....

    Agreed. And I'm not proposing they should either.

    But I do believe our equine partners shouldn't spend their last days enduring the inherent suffering of the horse slaughter pipeline.
  11. Garsh, it seems you might need an extra-strength...

    Garsh, it seems you might need an extra-strength tinfoil hat for that paranoia about 'animal rights'.

    The information I cited is all based on cold, hard evidence. Photos, videos and official...
  12. Speaking of farting rainbows and pooping...

    Speaking of farting rainbows and pooping butterflies.... there has been evidence, piled on top of evidence that factory horse slaughter has never been humane (and for us realists cannot ever be...
  13. Speaking of small pets, if we had dog/cat meat...

    Speaking of small pets, if we had dog/cat meat factories, you can be sure the puppy and kitten millers would be their highest users.

    We need to apply basic economic principles here. Horse...
  14. Because goodness knows, the USDA did such an...

    Because goodness knows, the USDA did such an exemplary job when the US plants were open, LOL. Did you miss all the pix of horses arriving with gouged eyes, limbs torn of, broken necks or dead?

    Or...
  15. Here's the fundamental problem well-intentioned...

    Here's the fundamental problem well-intentioned pro-slaughter folks are missing: Slaughter begets slaughter.

    The availability of horse slaughter enables irresponsible, unnecessary breeding. Most...
  16. Did you miss the memo that we're still exporting...

    Did you miss the memo that we're still exporting the same number of horses for slaughter as when the US plants were open? A little deductive reasoning, please. You can't attribute negative...
  17. Ahhh.... more paranoia about animal rights...

    Ahhh.... more paranoia about animal rights propaganda and HSUS. Oh no - they're coming to take your cows! And horses! And guns!!! Your husbands are next!!!!

    I definitely need to go into the tin...
  18. Yep, the world's largest registry that needs a...

    Yep, the world's largest registry that needs a system to make room for the continuing mass production. Bingo horse slaughter. I know it's long, but you might want to read the article, regardless of...
  19. "The object that drives the horse slaughter lobby...

    "The object that drives the horse slaughter lobby is money. It has never been about equine welfare, humanity, professionalism or reliability. Like in most political issues, those defending horse...
  20. Who funds the horse slaughter lobby? All roads lead to AQHA and Agribusiness.

    A great expose in the role of slaughter facilitating the unfettered breeding of horses. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the forces behind promoting horse slaughter in...

    ROFL... Keith absolutely has this information, I spoke to him about it at an event last night.

    He's pretty busy walking the walk helping horses - not from behind a computer. I'm sure he'll have...
  22. COTH article re: American TBs vs Euro Warmbloods?

    There was an article some months back in COTH about how America should go back to its signature TB jumpers a la Gem Twist, instead of importing $$$ warmbloods from Europe. I've searched in vain and...

    Hi Pot? It's me kettle. Were you aware your poor little slaughter and animal agriculture industries spent $3.5 Million in the last session of Congress, outspending the big bad "mega million...

    Bingo.

    I for one am unconcerned what happens to the carcass of an animal that has been humanely killed, via accurate bullet or veterinary euthanasia. The issue for me is the inexcusable inhumane...
  25. Where are the tens of millions of dollars in...

    Where are the tens of millions of dollars in increased oversight of local auctions, transport across the US and the individual slaughterhouses going to come from?

    Slaughter pushers need to remove...
