this is a deplorable, non chalant answer to the criminal behavior of starving poor roxie to near death.

this is a deplorable, non chalant answer to the criminal behavior of starving poor roxie to near death with donated funds. What happened to the funds from ARM?  Roxie was CLEARLY  not fed, or cared for.

ROXIE..AFTER 34 DAYS WITH ARM FUNDED WILLOW RUN . Below.

 Quarantine board paid for by people wanting to help by ARM/WILLOW RUN fundraiser. Apparently funds did not include food for WILLOW RUN owner Amy Smith.

Roxie’s rescuer stated, “ARM has been informed about the condition of this horse but probably will not say anything publicly due to politics”.

NEW OWNER: 

“I truly do not believe she would have lasted another 2 weeks at the QT barn. She had given up, her eyes were dull and dead. She was just waiting on death. I am grateful she had enough strength not to go down in the trailer on the way here.”

Horse Slaughter Debate Not Over in Oklahoma

~

Background | Tulsa World

Oklahoma lawmakers and Gov. Mary Fallin might have thought that quick passage of the horse slaughter bill would bring the controversy to an end. Instead, they probably just guaranteed that the controversy will continue to drag on, perhaps for years.
And the awful irony is we might have had to endure this dreadful experience, and the damage it’s done to our already lousy reputation, for naught   –  because there’s a good chance Oklahoma will never end up with a horse slaughterhouse. Let’s hope so, anyway.

But perhaps there might be at least one good outcome from this awful chapter in our legislative history: If Tulsa World readers follow through with their vows, lots of those lawmakers who supported horse slaughter and blithely ignored the wishes of voters might get booted out of office. (To learn how lawmakers voted go to http://www.tulsaworld.com/horsevote or http://www.tulsaworld.com/senatehorse.)

Several developments in recent years could mean there won’t be a slaughterhouse anywhere in the U.S. any time soon: pending federal legislation; stricter requirements for exported horse meat; persistent documentation issues, and a growing meat-fraud scandal.

And, there’s a growing movement across the country, articulated by the nation’s top agricultural official, to find a solution other than slaughter for managing the country’s horse population.

Just a few weeks ago, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack called for developing a “third way” to deal with unwanted or unneeded horses.

Vilsack called on Congress to “come up with a better solution for handling unwanted horses than slaughtering the animals for meat for human consumption.”
Vilsack’s agency is reviewing five applications for slaughterhouses, including reportedly one from Oklahoma, although it is unclear if the Oklahoma application is still being pursued.

The secretary wasn’t specific about what he meant by a third option, but suggested as examples that these horses could be used in programs to help returning war veterans or prison inmates.

Apparently a number of federal lawmakers agree with his stance. Pending federal legislation would ban the slaughter of American horses for human consumption and prohibit transporting them across the U.S. border to Mexican and Canadian slaughterhouses.

The measure, called the Safeguard American Food Exports Act, is in part a response to reports that horse meat has been found in food products in Europe and wrongly identified as beef.

MARIAH is an 8 year old mustang mare, she has been at the sanctuary since she was 11 months old. Captured in Nevada by the BLM when she was five months old, Mariah somehow  ” lost”  her mother during this BLM roundup. She spent 6 months with BLM, and was transported to 3 different facilities in 2 states during this time.

Mariah has deep emotional scars and joint damage (DOD), probably from a combination of being chased at least 12 miles by a BLM helicopter (according to their records) as a tiny baby and from being fed straight alfalfa, with no minerals added to balance the ration. I wrote an article about her which was published in 2004 by both Natural Horse magazine and The Horse’s Hoof. She is another example of a perfectly happy and healthy wild horse with permanent damage from BLM abuse and mismanagement.  Despite it all, and her small size, she is our alpha mare and still has quite a lot of spirit.

Beautiful Horses of Camargue

Photos of Camargue Horses by Irene Suchocki

.

The Camargue horse is an ancient breed of horse indigenous to the Camargue area in southern France. For centuries, possibly thousands of years, these small horses have lived wild in the harsh environment of the Camargue marshes and wetlands of the Rhone delta. There they developed the stamina, hardiness and agility for which they are known today. The Camargue horse is the traditional mount of the gardians, the Camargue “cowboys” who herd the black Camargue bulls used in bullfighting in southern France. Camargue horses galloping through water is a popular and romantic image of the region.

Camargue horses are always gray. This means that they have black skin underlying a white hair coat as adult horses. They are born with a hair coat that is black or dark brown in colour, but as they grow to adulthood, their hair coat becomes ever more intermingled with white hairs until it is completely white. They are small horses, generally standing 1.35–1.50 metres (13.1–14.3 hands) at the withers, and weighing 350 to 500 kg (770 to 1,100 lb).  Despite their small size, they have the strength to carry grown men. Rugged and intelligent, they have a short neck, deep chest, compact body, well-jointed, strong limbs and a full mane and tail.

A Horse is a Girl’s Best Friend

.BACKGROUND FROM: POWAY PATCH

Women and horses, what can I say? Women love horses. Even women that have never been in the company of horses often have fantasies about riding on the beach, in the mountains or wherever their heart can dream up.

Horses have been a romantic figure for centuries, and many of my non-horsey friends share their feelings and horse fantasies from time to time. Here is what one of them said to me the other day:

.

It all started so innocently. I went down to the Equestrian Center to meet the woman who runs it to talk to her about some of the horses they’ve taken in from a ranch that had to close. She was standing in a barn next to the stall of my beloved.  Chocolate.

The horse is 8.   And right now she’s anxious that her family member has been taken out of the stall and hasn’t returned.  I was struck by her beauty. Almost at a hormonal level. Her haunches … the line of her jaw.

Now I know what it’s like.   I couldn’t take my eyes off her. And, naturally, she’s for sale.
