    Default KY pulls incentive fund money for "injured" Tennessee Walkers

    http://www.kentucky.com/news/local/story/926968.html

    Along with yanking the incentive money on horses that have been "sored", the Kentucky Walking Horse Association can no longer use its own inspectors to determine if a horse has been sored, thus closing one of the ugliest loopholes in the whole soring fiasco.

    Now, if they can only get a certain high-ranking US Senator (coughcoughmitchmcconnellcoughcough) to stop protecting the Tennessee Walking Horse industry by threatening to cut funding from the USDA unless they "back off"....

    If we could get rid of a certain high-ranking US Senator (coughcoughmitchmcconnellcoughcough), a lot of our horse problems could be addressed without running into major road blocks.

    Thought he would get voted out last round, but no such luck.

    The KWHA is known for it's, uhm ... , apparent blindness when its' members "fix" thier horses. Showed at two of their venues and just could not do it again.
