Start with good news: The Navajo Nation has reversed its stance on wild horse round ups, and will also withdraw its support of domestic horse slaughter.

The owner of Mine That Bird, testified for the pro horse slaughter group in NM. I imagine he has no qualms about sending Mine That Bird to the killer line, when the horse is forgotten.

Here is an article about his lack of ethics.

Can you provide some details? I know that Mark Allen testified for the pro horse slaughter group--Mark Allen the Republican senator from OK. However, the Mark Allen who owns Mine That Bird has publicly stated he is against slaughter--not the same person as Senator Mark Allen. Has he changed his stance?

Mark Allen, owner of the Kentucky Derby winning horse ‘Mine that Bird’ weighed in.

"I'm not for slaughtering horses," said Allen.

He won’t be taking his horses to slaughter.

"None of my horses will be put down. If they’re just running them in there for good meat, I'm not for it," said Allen.

The 10th Circuit has issued a temporary injunction halting USDA inspections of the slaughter plants, effectively overturning the NM judge's decision allowing them to reopen. This applies to plants in both New Mexico and Missouri.

From Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA)

Good news on two fronts!

First, the federal appeals court has issued a temporary injunction that prohibits the USDA from inspecting horse slaughter plants. The announcement doesn't indicate the length of the injunction.

Second, Dr. Lester Friedlander reports that in a discussion with the USDA he was informed that inspectors have not been trained and they will not be trained until the appeals process has concluded. The training could take weeks.

Once again, APs, Jeri Clausing, was wrong with her sky is falling - plants will open on Monday - release.

That's reassuring to hear, but we really need to stop the threat of slaughter once and for all.

If you agree that horse slaughter should not be a business in the U.S.A. and that U.S.A. horses should not be shipped to other countries to be slaughtered, here is how you can help -

Thank you for any support you can give in the effort to do away with the egregious practice of horse slaughter. It's never been humane, and it never will be.
