INDUSTRY ORGANIZATIONS WEIGH IN:
In recent months bills have been introduced in the House of Representatives
that would outlaw the slaughter of horses for human consumption.
Though not our intention to become involved in any political maneuvering, we
felt it incumbent on us to make a statement concerning our beliefs on horse slaughter.
We are definitively opposed to the slaughter of Thorough-breds and urge all those
involved in the Thoroughbred industry to support our ever- expanding rescue and
adoption efforts and to work together to find humane means of dealing with the
problems presented by Thoroughbreds no longer suitable for racing or breeding.
