We must all do our part if we want this cruel, unspeakable and un-American practice to end. A major drive on the part of all Americans who want to permanently stop the slaughter of America's horses here and abroad need to become very pro-active in

According to the Associated Press, horsemeat lobbyist and former Congressman Charles Stenholm (D-TX), is trying to encourage some American Indian tribes to construct horse slaughterhouses on their reservations. Please let Charles Stenholm know how you feel about this by contacting him at Olsson Frank Weeda at 1400 Sixteenth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036; Phone: (202) 789-1212; Fax: 9202) 234-3550. Cathleen Doyle, former head of the California Equine Council and the Director of the Save the Horses campaign in California that passed the first state initiative in history which banned the slaughter of horses for human consumption, had some choice words for Mr. Stenholm about his intentions for resurrecting horse slaughter on Indian reservations

Just mailed off a letter. The American Indians will hopefully tell this buttwad where to go. It makes me sick and angry how our policy makers hate horses,wolves, well every animal and are mor than happy to have them abused/tortured/murdered. This is so depraved.

We must also reprimand horse breeders and the horse racing industry for callously dumping unwanted horses into the slaughterhouses. Also, do NOT use Premarin (hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women)- each horse needs to become pregnant to produce the hormones in her urine- guess what happens to the unwanted little foal after it is born?!

US going backward or copying China and Korea now? Horsemeat /-slaughter was always banned in the US as far as I know, what in the world could make them change mind now?! Just because some butcher idiot in NM and OK want to establish this insanity now? I cannot believe that permits will actually be issued! I do hope many will take action for this,-wish I could1 thx Cher.

This is a case of Offer and demand. EU is the market everybody wants. Other countries are selling horses to Europe already. Market is there. If US is selling or will sell livestock meat again to the EU (non "hormonized") why not selling horses? There is a big market in Europe! People there is asking for it the same way people in this side is asking for cow & hog meat. Satisfying the taste for meat in general is not helping horses cause. Sad.

While this is horrific, slaughtering horses is no different than any other animal that is slaughtered for food! ALL animals deserve peace and respect - how can we eat one animal and then rally for protection for another??!! Go vegan!! :)

In NE, we have a new female Senator - Deb Fischer - a worthless teabagger! She is a rich rancher with a bad rep. She beat Bob Kerrey, former wonderful NE Governor and Senator. Sometimes, I just wonder about the intelligence of Nebraskans. I wrote to Ms Fischer and she sent me a long bullshit letter - here is the last paragragh:
" As a rancher and animal lover, I believe that truly caring for animals requires that we make provisions for how to handle them once they have reached the end of their useful lives. I believe that providing for the humane slaughter of horses in the United States is the best way to achieve this objective"

What a keg of crap! This is what I have to deal with. I love Nebraska except for all the damn republicans!
