On Fugly Horse of the Day, they have a great guest article from a farrier who works outside of the TWH industry, but was "educated" on how to put the stacks on at a TWH barn. I highly recommend reading this. She points out the medical issues that can and will arise and how quite frankly, shoeing a horse like this makes absolutely no sense.

And our friend to the horse Roy Exum keeps writing articles. Here are his latest ones since June 25.
June 30, 3012 - What Happened to Horse Sense? (Concerning the farce that was the TWH of Today Equine Conference--I'll write more on it in a later post.)
July 2, 2012 - Coca-Cola Just Broke My Heart
We're Quitting Coca-Cola Too and responses
July 10, 2012 - A Wolf Wearing Sheep's Clothing
*SIGH* So I guess I'm going to have to talk about the TWH of Today Equine Conference eventually...Do I have to? People standing around patting themselves on the back and essentially ignoring what the USDA and other experts that actually agree that soring needs to end said is not my idea of a good time. But what cracked me up was the obvious lack of people in the stands to watch Tim Scarberry. So more on that soon...

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