First, I want to say that I had to change how the comments are posted because of the massive amounts of Asian porn sites that keep posting in the comments section of my blog. It will tell you when you try to comment how to do it.
Now to the real news: nothing quite like admitting you're guilty by canceling your own show when the Feds arrive!
The USDA showed up this past weekend, July 23-25, to inspect at the Bedford County Fair SSHBEA pleasure horse show in (surprise, surprise) Shelbyville, TN. The show manager shut the show down right before it was supposed to start. Click here for the article.
I do have an issue with the article itself--they make the SSHBEA look innocent and don't explain exactly WHY the USDA does inspections and what they are looking for. And nothing like throwing some kids in there to make us feel sorry for the show participants.
Be sure to write to the USDA and tell them you appreciate their attending this show. And if you feel so inclined, feel free to write to the news website to tell them they need to not be supporting the SSHBEA on this--that they are supporting known felons and need to be punished for what they do.
