Recently, I diaried about the unhappy fate of nearly 100,000 American horses every year. Our Congress has now acted to protect American horses from slaughter by an amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations Bill. The bill has moved into a Conference Committee where it can be altered before being sent on to the President. Ten members of that committee have supported the amendment, but seven have opposed it.
If you are a resident of MS, MO, MT, ID, KS, ND, or SD, your Senator opposed the amendment. These men have the power to remove the amendment from this bill and saddle our beautiful horses with a terrible fate. It could happen this week.
Please visit this action page to contact your Senators on the Conference Committee, and help protect America’s wild horses.
