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

~ Jim Heird, Ph.D., Do Right By The Horse, February 2010

"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity,
you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."

Hello friends!  I just want to let all of you know we are working on some posts that are going to give more information about what's being done about this situation.  Things are changing daily, and we are working hard to help the horse by getting as much information out there as we can.  We have lots of evidence against these monsters that goes back for decades.

PLEASE NOTE:  I'm getting a plethora of emails concerning this, and I'm doing my best to answer each of yours in turn.  So I will get back to you, if not for a couple of days.  Thanks so much for your patience!

(I'm kinda excited I got to use the word "plethora" in a sentence.)

Some quick updates: 

To our friends overseas:  We absolutely still need your help in writing to the HIOs, TWHBEA, and signing petitions.  See the above link for the blog post with all the contact information.  TWHBEA has an International committee, so let them know what you think and what you want to see done!

It is quite possible that Ford HAS NOT pulled out of the Celebration.  We're trying to find out for sure.

Coca-Cola MIGHT be coming in for sponsorships.  We'll find out about that as well.

McConnell has plead guilty to only one charge.  The attorney has asked for dismissal of the rest of the charges.  The judge will not make his final decision until September, so please feel free to continue to contact the judge.  Click the link above for the blog post with the judge's contact information on it.

McConnell also still has to answer to the State of Tennessee.  We'll have more information on that as we go along.

More facts about the judges in this awesome opinion piece by Roy Exum.  Roy Exum: Guess Who Judges Horses?

Most of the activity and updates are happening on our Facebook group on a daily basis.  TONS of posts and people putting in facts.  If you want to stay UTD, right now that's one of the best ways to go.  Click here for our Facebook group.

And finally, but definitely not least in our list...

THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR WANTING TO SAVE THE HORSE.  This overwhelming response is exactly what we need.  Let's keep it up for the next few months and make sure we boycott the Celebration and their sponsors!  Let's continue letting them know we won't stand for this anymore and we're tired of their lies and protecting the violators!  This is ALL FOR THE HORSE!
