Our guest tonight is Ann Marini, Ph.D., M.D. and she will be talking about the drugs that the Bureau of Land Management gives to wild horses and burros.  We compiled a list of drugs from information on FOIA requests and from verification by BLM staff.

Dr Marini earned both her Ph.D. degree from the Department of Biochemistry, 1978, and her medical degree from the Georgetown School of Medicine in 1980.  She completed a residencies in medicine at UMASS Worcester, Massachusetts; 1980-1983; and in Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York, 1983-1986.  She was a Senior Staff Fellow at NINDS/NIMH, 1986-1993.  Her research interests include neuropharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, Mechanisms of Neuronal Cell Death and Neuronal Intrinsic Survival Pathways.  Dr. Marini’s group published the peer-review article: Association of phenylbutazone usage with horses bought for slaughter: A public health risk authored by Nicholas Dodman, Nicolas Blondeau and Ann M. Marini and this manuscript was published in the peer-review journal Food and Chemical Toxicology in 2010.

This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey (V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs) of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

  1. Question: Is there any chance that the use of drugs given to our wild horses and burros when captured could stop the sales of them to kill buyers for slaughter?

  2. Horizontal gene (and perhaps other elements like prions) transfer occurs in humans on consumption and should be further investigated before taking any steps to encourage use of untraceable horses in the human food chain. A waiting period of several months may not be sufficient, especially for hundreds of known compounds and the related costs of waiting them all out, testing, and of course many will not be identified. Recall here the homemade concoctions used in polo ponies that killed so many a few years ago.

    There are additional humane considerations if horses are sold for kill then warehoused in private facilities — we’ve all seen what happens when people hoard horses which have little value, and even those that are high dollar animals but claimed as insurance losses.

    Complete Genes May Pass from Food to Human Blood

  3. Agreement Paves Way for Export of U.S. Horses to China

    Ky. Agriculture Commissioner Quarles praises resumption of equine exports to China.

    Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles praised the resumption of equine exports to China at a signing ceremony in Beijing Nov. 6.

    The agreement, signed by U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad and Minister Zhi Shuping of the People’s Republic of China, clears the way for the U.S. to export horses, including Thoroughbreds, to China, where a rapidly expanding racing industry has emerged.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association-Kentucky Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders, the American Quarter Horse Association, Keeneland Association, U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, and Quarles worked together to address concerns in China about equine infectious anemia. The effort began with a visit to China in the fall of 2016. Earlier this year, Quarles hosted a Chinese delegation in Kentucky for a site visit.

    As a result of these efforts, the USDA and AQSIQ have reached an agreement repealing this technical import barrier, clearing the way for the export of horses to China. Dipolmatic and industry leaders jointed Quarles at the signing of the agreement.

  4. Why is the world out for horses’ blood?
    Michele Hanson

    Horse blood farms are a growing business, China is buying up the world’s donkeys for their skins, and wild horses in the US face mass slaughter. Are we on the way to an equine wipe out?

    Why horses, you may ask, with humans being blown to hell and starving? What’s so special about horses? Because they are on my mind. Equines have been in the news lately. Author Meg Rosoff explained perfectly on Radio 4 why they’re so special, and why girls and women love riding. Now Norwegian scientists from the Department of the Bleeding Obvious have found that horses can learn to communicate with humans. How come they didn’t know already? Any 10-year old who has looked after a pony for five minutes could have told them that.

    • How much easier it will be if other states besides Kentucky (of all states) line up to designate horses as livestock! They’re already being treated as such – the same as farm animals – who have barely ANY protection from abuse – I would hope that anyone who cares for equines will realize exactly what this means for these wonderful creatures. Between the bleeding and the premarin farms – what next?
