Some more news from the Walking Horse Report. Glad to see the violations are being reported. Just would like to know who the violators are. Hopefully we will see them in the report FOSH publishes on their website.
My thoughts: SHOW is absolutely not out to make a change. They are out to continue to cover up the lies. It's hard to trust a group that is made up mostly of the same people who ran the NHSC, whom we couldn't trust either.

Thursday Night Inspection Results
Friday, June 05, 2009
Andy Messick, DQP Coordinator for the SHOW HIO released the following inspection results from the National Trainers' Show and Germantown Charity Horse Show on Thursday night (June 4, 2009). In Shelbyville at the Trainers' Show SHOW DQPs did not write a single violation out of the 87 entries presented for inspection. USDA VMOs wrote one unilateral sensitivity violation and also wrote a violation based on digital radiography results that showed a 6% rotation of the coffin bone. In Germantown, 16 horses were presented for inspection. SHOW DQPs wrote one unilateral sensitivity violation and wrote another horse on both a scar rule and bilateral sensitivity violation. USDA VMOs took information on these horses but didn't write any additional violations.

you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."
