To help fight Horse Slaughter please read

As I'm sure you know three senators recently added a rider to a bill that has revived horse slaughter. If you are for slaughter please respectfully just move on, you won't change my mind, I can't change yours, this is for those who want to fight it.
This is a fight against big Ag , the QH industry and their propaganda, and the race horse industry as well. We need every voice, because the horses don't have one.


Here is the quick contact info for the three politicians directly responsible for adding the horse slaughter line to the Bill. CONTACT THEM, PLEASE! To contact via e-mail you need to go to their websites. FAX them...
Senator Roy Blunt
260 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Phone: (202) 224-5721
Fax: (202) 224-8149
Senator Herb Kohl. Had to go digging on his website to find the number in small print..by the way he was the Chairman of the commitee.
Washington office.
(202) 224-5653 No fax number provided.
Rep. Jack Kingston
Washington Office
2372 Rayburn HOB
Washington, DC 20515
Phone: (202) 225-5831
Fax: (202) 226-2269



Make sure to call the hotline !!!!!
Also this is a hotline # 1-202-456-1111 and should get you to a live person. Tell them you want S. 1176/H.R. 2966 to be passed, it is the horse slaughter prevention act. As usual contact your senators and tell them to support it.

Thank you.

So those big organizations like AQHA that support slaughter are just spreading propaganda,Just because their view on things is different? Only those alike yourself spread the truth & solutions:roll::roll:

The bill has already passed. I don't see what you're hoping to accomplish.

It's called a counter canter...

OP, if you had bothered to actually look around this board before posting, you would know that the majority of us are actually pro-slaughter and you could have saved the time it took to post this....

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Moved to Horse Protection, which is where all the slaughter threads go.

Also, while I disagree with the OP, her views are allowed, and she can post a thread if she wishes. Her post was not mean or abusive in any way.

Op has a right to post. OP - I noticed you placed a caveat that folks that are for slaughter need not reply. It doesn't work that way on this forum. Everyone is allowed to participate on threads as long as they are respectful and in a case like this, they'll want to be able to explain why a ban on horse slaughter actually hurt the horse industry, which is why they are re-opening plants.

At least this OP is asking those who wish to change this new law to take action, rather than just whining or complaining . Fair enough.

If you would have read all of my post it says at the bottom there is a bill to support that is the horse slaughter prevention act that is due to come up for vote. And yes the QH industry does use propaganda to further their agenda. Since they are the puppy mill of the equine world, they like having this in place to clean up their mess. Along with big Ag and the race horse industry. Personally I would rather see a horse take a bullet in the head than to go through the cruelties of slaughter. And this is not to cure some neglect problem. I'm looking for those who actually look a little beyond what they are spoon fed by the big money lobbyist and horse industry and those who care about the treatment these horses get. My apologies for forgetting about free speech and all that. Funny, one person said " Another thread about Horse slaughter" so I'm guessing there are a few of "my kind" here after all.... I only put the " if you are for it respectfully move on" to avoid this very thing. I'm not after a debate or snide remarks, although I can back it up .... they were quite rude considering what I posted....... just wanted to provide info to those who care and might want it. Thanks for the welcome, I haven't been here for quite some time and have not checked the forums...... I'll monitor this thread briefly for a day or so , but no worries I won't be back.
