Justice for equines: Stop the legalization of horse slaughter

      Chesapeake, VA

This is important because the horse is one of the biggest American icon. The horse provided for mankind before there were cars and tractors. A lot of Americans wouldn't have eaten had they not had a horse to plow there fields. Please recognize that the horseshould have a place in history and in our hearts. No matter if you ride a horse or not this animal is special and should not be abused and should not be slaughtered while they are still alive and that is what's happening. The protection act has now been lifted and there are horses still being carried across borders to be killed. Please sign to save our heritage!

      Good morning friends. We are still moving along, but a bit slower than the past 2 days. We are 12 signatures shy of 200. Lets keep sharing and blogging and lets meet the 200 goal and then we will go to 500. I know that we can do this because you all are so supportive and passionate about this subject. With the upcoming election, we need to stand back and look at this and ask ourselves if this cause would be noticed without several petitions backing our voices. So please keep sharing and blogging and let it be known that we are on the road to congress to save the horses and protect them from horrible death. Thank you so much for your support!!!!! I will keep the updates coming!!!!!!!

      Another great day for the petition. We have gotten 60 more signatures today and they keep coming. Thanks to everyone that is sharing and blogging. I would like to hear some stories from the supporters. Even if it doesnt have anything to do with slaughter, even if it is just a heart felt story about a horse and the way it has brought joy to a child or to you. I would like to present these stories to congress when this bill gets there. You may email me at pokerface553@gmail.com or you may share stories on facebook to Jamie Myers or Ricks farrier service. Again, thanks so much to the overseas supporters, you guys have been a huge asset in helping me get this petition the attention it deserves!!!!! Keep up the great work and I will keep the updates coming!!!!!!!!!

      Wow!!!!!! What an amazing day it has been for this petition. I am so happy that I want to cry. The momentum has come back and we are getting signatures every 30 minutes. Please keep blogging and sharing, this is a pivotal topic that I am determined to get infront of congress. I am dedicated and very determined to follow this to the very end and I am hoping that means in front of congress eyes. My farm has rescued several horses that would have ended up in the slaughter house and they lived well protected lives and knew human love the way it is suppose to be. Some we rescued had been beaten, starved, and burned with cigarettes because they did not perform properly. All of these horses were rehabed and they became wonderful riding horses due to our hearts bleeding for them and taking a chance on them. Please share a story, I would love to read it and please keep sharing and blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      llThanks to all who has signed and shared. We need more sharing, we are kinda loosing momentum. During the last debate a comment was said by the president statiting that we had more bayonets than horses. Due to his actions this comment will come true. If we were to resort back to early ages where horses carried our military to war, there will be no horses to carry out that task because they will have been slaughtered and sold to overseas markets. Please share this petition and help me save our horses.

      Horses suffer so much because of the horse race, rodeo, medical testings. They are so beautiful and magnificent.

      Horses are kind, gentle, loving, trusting animals. They should not be slaughtered by those they have come to trust. It is so unbelievable that this even exist in our world. Where would we be had it not been for horses.
