The Good: TWH Soring Issue – New Amended Bill Being Introduced

Thank you E.Q. for bringing this to my attention.   Some of you may remember the uproar last year when a certain ‘behind-the-scenes’  video was displayed on Fugly (and all over the Internet)  in regards to abuse against Tennessee Walking Horses for the purposes of winning in the show ring.

There was a cry of outrage, but as with many things in life, not a whole lot came of it as the proposed Bill 6388 died in committee last September.  Fortunately, tenacity exists in some people and a new amended bill: HR 1518, sponsored by U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky is being introduced.

Both the AVMA and the AAEP are supporting this bill and here’s a link to the particulars of that:  Veterinary Practice News  There is an opportunity to submit a comment at the bottom of this article.  Show your support!

Stand up for the horses and lend them your voice.
