"Today, Tennessee Walking Horses are known throughout the industry
as the breed that shows abused and tortured horses."

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

THOUGHTS - For the TWH Facebook Page and a New FTTWH Forum

Hello friends. As many of you may already know, the abuse from the side of the industry that supports padded horses has gotten out of hand on the Facebook page. The goal of the Facebook page was always to supplement the blog so folks could find out when new blog posts were made. Even I lost sight of this and fell into the trap of fighting with others. Overall, comments have gotten out of hand, and I believe that many people on the page have abused their privileges. I also have a hard time with others dominating the page with their comments, so the important action items are being shoved aside. Therefore, as of midnight on Monday, 7/18/11, the Facebook page will be put on hold. It will be back up without the ability to post comments within a few days.

Since I will most likely be accused of censoring others, being unfair, etc., I've decided that an open forum is a better place to allow these discussions. So feel free to come visit the new For the Tennessee Walking Horse Forum. The forum is absolutely free! Only registered members are allowed to comment to ward off spam.

The blog will continue, but I still have to moderate comments because of the continued spam for Asian p0rn that comes up.

Thank you for your continued support to help end soring. Please don't forget to comment on the current docket--we need your voices to be heard since the horses can't speak for themselves!
