I thought that I had finished with the blog, this morning. I posted the delightful story of a little wild foal brought back to health by some really super kind individuals and I thought my job was done. But before I could get up from the computer and move on with my Sunday a little tease from Facebook flashed across my screen saying that I had memories from 9 years ago this past week with Terry Fitch, John Holland, Vicki Tobin, Ginger Kathrens and Simone Netherlands. Of course, I had to take a peek and in doing so, my physiological contentment blew right out the window.

Twas the night before Christmas on our public land
not a Mustang was stirring, knowing what was at hand.
They huddled in fear hoping someone would care,
in hopes that the advocates soon would be there.
As expected, Wallis has issued another of her manifestos. Of note is her wise decision to go with a cartoon as a logo because her ramblings get more and more comical with each new email. As usual, the issue of drug residue traceability in horses is completely ignored.
Chicago (EWA) – During his 2008 campaign, President Obama promised his unequivocal support for a ban on horse slaughter. “Now is the time for you to keep that promise, Mr. President,” says John Holland, president of Equine Welfare Alliance.
Calling it “paramount to public health”, the Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA) and Animal Law Coalition (ALC) sent a letter to President Obama, urging him to support a ban on equine slaughter for human consumption. The groups also presented the president with more than 6,000 signatures on a White House petition calling for an end to equine slaughter for human consumption.
