Ok your kind of fooling me.
Ok so before the plants shut down in texas (the one in illinois had afire and had been closed for a while before this if im correct)..That would mean horses sold at the new holland (PA. I believe) sale were still hauled well over 2,000 miles to dallas. Horses picked up in nevada had roughly a 1,500 mile trip, while horses from up in the northwest area (enumclaw action comes to mind) are in the same boat as the the new holland horses. My point is that these horses STILL had to travel before being exported. The only difference is its a different set of horses traveling. AND an FYI the same amount of horses are still being slaughtered as before, just NOW because of the exportation, we arent seeing the prices per pound we did before.
