The White House has submitted its proposed 2015 budget to Congress -- and has retained the language blocking use of inspectors for equine slaughterhouses. (Of course, Congress will ignore this budget proposal until much later in the year -- and the language could always be changed by Congress.)

American Association of Equine Practitioners. Bastards! However, not every member of that organization agrees.

Here's a list of those organizations against horse slaughter -

To have the equine folks backing slaughter is like pediatricians backing pedophiles.

From EWA Equine Welfare Alliance

Here is the official announcement on the ban on horse meat from Mexico.

This is some background info.

And more good news.... We received word today that the continuing resolution with the defund language (no funding for horse inspections) is officially a done deal for the 2015 budget year.

Sounds like no more shipments of horsemeat from Mexico to the European Union after 15 January. I guess we get to all hold our breath that this doesn't derail between now and then.

This sounds hopeful, as inhumane treatment of horses during transport is a major issue for the EU, and that is likely to also be true of horses shipping to Canada.
"The transportation problem is also expected to affect slaughter operations in Canada, according to Scannell, who added the commission is close to imposing a "six-month" rule for Canada."
