Here is a link to United Horsemen. Org. We have been members and have signed every one of their petitions to Congress and the President. It is through the efforts of Sue Wallis and this organization that the government leaders are finally hearing the truth and hearing OUR SIDE of this sad story.
This is the ONLY Lobby group that I have EVER donated a dime to. I have sent this link to everyone I know that wants to see humane and well regulated slaughter returned to the US where it belongs.
This group is also sponsoring a 'Do Not Slaughter' Registry where everyone of us who has a personal connection to the horses we have raised and ridden and DO NOT want those horses slaughtered and would provide a retirement home or different end to their good lives can have those horses micro chipped and identified if they ever arrive at a US slaughter plant. This registry would insure that any horse with such a chip would not be slaughtered HERE in the US.
Here is the link to this organization. Everyone with a stake in the horse industry should become a member. United Horsemen
Thank them for any progress made. Slaughtering horses has never been illegal in the US. But, the HSUS and other /animal Rights terrorists got the USDA to stop providing meat inspectors so that horse meat could be sold for human consumption. They would not let the plant owners even pay for the USDA inspectors. So in effect, that inability of the plants to have USDA meat inspectors in them stopped all horse processing. That is the ban that has been lifted. A lot more lobbying needs to be done to actually restore USDA inspectors to any future plants that would process horse meat.
