as the breed that shows abused and tortured horses."

BLACK WEEK HAS BEGUN - August 25 through September 4

Well, Black Week is here. The Celebration of abused and tortured horses is upon us. I am keeping an eye out to see what's going on. I hope the USDA is there, but I'm not even sure if they are or not. So I will keep information posted as the show marches painfully onward. May God have mercy on the horses.

My mom works with some people who do the security work down there. They said that something big was going to go down. Apparently. Maybe we'll see some changes if they take drastic measures. It's about time.

Definitely let us know what happens, twhrider, if you can! I still haven't found anything about what's going on, but I imagine the sore horse community is doing it's best to keep any information from leaking out.
