"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."

ARTICLES - More Contact Info and Thank You to Roy Exum For Exposing More Information

First, I want to point out that Gail Kerr  from the Tennessean was kind enough to put together a great article that includes who exactly to contact to get soring ended once and for all.  We've added this contact information to our post with the list of contacts.

Next, we've got a lot of media frenzy going on that is not dying quickly, especially in Tennessee.  I've found some of the best articles are coming from a new hero for the horse: Roy Exum from The Chattanoogan.

Here's a list of his articles of the past week.

Some of the responses to his articles are included here.

I highly recommend that everyone take the time to truly read these articles.  The reason why is because Mr. Exum points out some really important information.  He gives us a list of current violators that hold high positions at TWHBEA and other orgs, he posts letters from readers of recent witness to soring, including at the Panama City show in Florida last April.  He also tells us how he's being threatened by the foolish people who either still think that soring isn't going on or who continue to have their heads in the sand.  But now these people have no power.  You can't argue with black and white facts, folks.

I am also absolutely sickened by the TWHNC and TWHBEA for wanting to hold a hearing with Keith Dane.  They are clearly wanting to shoot the messenger, and honestly, this absolutely tells me that they have no problem with abuse continuing in their industry.  I don't think there are words for how disappointed, angry, and physically sickened I am by these monsters.  And they truly are that: MONSTERS.  This should be a message to everyone: if you trusted the industry until now, then your trust should be shattered.  The lies are ridiculous--NO ONE who is for the welfare of the horse as they claim they are would be attacking the one person who's exposed abuse of one if their own.  They should be shaking his hand, not kicking his ass.

Thank you, Mr. Exum.  Honestly, I know I can't personally thank you enough.  It's so wonderful to have another warrior for the horse.  I hope to meet you in person someday and get to shake your hand.
