as the breed that shows abused and tortured horses."

ARTICLES - "Why do facts not matter to some people?"

After a...well, let's call it "lively" discussion concerning a young man who supports people who sore horses and the BL and the fact that he called me the C-word (among other things) because I am against soring and the Big Lick, I realized how true this article really is.

This is an article from Quora, which you might have to be a member of to read it.  So I've copied and pasted it below.  (My apologies to Quora).  Click here for the link to the article.

As I was having this "discussion" with this young man, he would say things like the PAST Act is going to eliminate all horse shoes, even keg shoes.  I posted the letter from Reps Cohen and Whitfield stating that it would not eliminate all horse shoes.  Click here for the letter.  He ignored it.

He then stated that the Auburn Study said that pads actually protect the horses.  I posted the Auburn Study cover letter that explained how the vets in the Auburn Study said that stacks actually caused more instances of laminitis, contracted heels, thrush, and other problems.  Click here for the cover letter.  He ignored it.

At one point in the "discussion," the young man claimed he never called one of the other people in the discussion names.  I then copied and pasted his posts for him where he called the guy a liar, a deceiver, and some other choice words.  He ignored it.

He kept pointing out how there's abuse in other breeds.  We said stay on topic--the HPA is the ONLY federal law against a specific type of abuse against horses.  When people are ready to pass a law stating that X abuse in X discipline is illegal, then we'll jump on that that bandwagon.  He ignored it.

He started talking about ear cropped and tail docking in dogs, and basically said, "You are okay with that, right?"  I said quite frankly, no, and what does that have to do with anything?  We're talking about horses, not dogs.  He ignored it.

I could go on and on, but this kid was clearly just not getting it and not believing the facts we were presenting him.  So the below article really explains why this phenomenon happens.  It's pretty incredible.  It also explains why we need to keep at our Congresspersons to get them to sign on to the PAST Act and to make it an amendment to the HPA.  These people who support the BL and soring aren't going to change their minds because they're not willing to do so.  Some will, of course, and some certainly have.  But it's not enough.  So instead, we need to focus on the lawmakers and people who can make a change rather than expecting a change to come from within.

I will have more information on who to contact soon, and I am still transcribing the hearing.  But keep calling, faxing and emailing.  The Lickers will be in DC with their "facts" on December 10, so get your information in before then!  Stay tuned!

Question: Why do facts not matter to some people?
I understand that when people have already made up their mind in certain regards, facts only bolster their opinions in believing their delusions. Why is this? Also does anyone have any articles related to this principle?

Answer from Adam Mordecai
Facts do matter to most people. They just aren't trained or taught how to hear them, because psychologically speaking, they are protecting themselves.

Linked articles:
In Politics, Sometimes The Facts Don't Matter
How Facts Backfire

"Facts don’t necessarily have the power to change our minds. In fact, quite the opposite. In a series of studies in 2005 and 2006, researchers at the University of Michigan found that when misinformed people, particularly political partisans, were exposed to corrected facts in news stories, they rarely changed their minds. In fact, they often became even more strongly set in their beliefs. Facts, they found, were not curing misinformation. Like an underpowered antibiotic, facts could actually make misinformation even stronger."

Anyone strongly devoted to a set of ideas or beliefs generally comes to them over a long period of time. Think of their brain as a dam. If the dam starts to crack, it deteriorates. If the dam breaks, then they have to question everything they've learned and known to be completely true for the last x years.

That means their friends, everything they've read, everything their parents taught them, everything their culture taught them could be a lie.

With that math, you have two choices:
1) ignore the one fact in front of you, or
2) accept it and question every belief you've ever had about everything you know.

#2 is too large a leap for the majority of people.

If it's something innocuous, they can hear you, but if you provide evidence of something that would make them question their entire belief system, their defense mechanisms kick in. Or if they face their reality, thanks to being exposed physically to the truth, rather than you sharing some stats, this can happen:

Facts are cold, impersonal details that have no connection to that person's reality. In order for them to really hear you, they need to personally connect to it. Thus, you have Nancy Reagan supporting stem cell research, and Rush Limbaugh supporting drug rehabilitation and Dick Cheney being okay with gay people. Until a person personally experiences something to counter what they believe, they will ignore the facts and trust everything they've already been taught.

The good news is, if you become adept at connecting to people personally, they'll be more inclined to ease off their shutdown switch and hear you. Problem is, you have to do it one person at a time.

I heard an amazing story recently about a group of immigration rights activists who were marching on Washington, walking from Florida. Along the way they participated in town halls. At a town hall in SC, an old white guy got up, and started yelling at them, accusing them of murdering his wife, because they were using all the medical resources that would otherwise have gone to his wife and the organ transplant she needed. Fox News had told him all about it.

Rather than responding with facts like "immigrants don't use any resources unless they are on the verge of death, for fear of being caught and deported," the activist, Juan, told the story of how 23 members of his Colombian upper middle class family sought political asylum in the US to protect them from being assassinated, how they were rejected, and how they went underground to save their lives, and went from being doctors and lawyers to janitors and maids. They went from having a bunch of homes for their extended families, to all living under one roof in a small two-bedroom house. They were then slowly deported one by one, starting with Juan's mother, until all that was left was Juan, his mentally handicapped sister, and his dad. Juan got into college, and then his dad and sister got deported.

After he had made a personal connection about losing family with the old white guy, then he shared all the facts.

The old man ended up crying and hugging Juan, apologized for not understanding the truth, and wished them well on their journey, stating that he would be more careful about what he believes from now on.

[Broken link here]

If an old white guy in SC and an immigration activist can hug and break bread, then facts can matter. You just have to make a personal connection first to get people to open up and listen.

And then stop them from watching any TV news ever again, so they don't get the wrong impression.

NEWS and ARTICLES - WOW. Reporters Everywhere Are Weighing In on the PAST Act

Seriously.  Just WOW.

Here's a list of amazing articles that are popping up all over the place concerning the PAST Act.  I'm not going to copy and paste here, just give a list of the articles.

What amazes me is that many of these people are not horse owners, and even they can see the logic behind the bill and are all for passing it.  Of course, the Industry wants to make you think that if you don't own a horse, you don't know what you're talking about, especially if you don't own a Big Lick horses.  Well la-dee-da.

Look folks: abuse is abuse is abuse.  The PAST Act removes the tools that have been used to abuse horses for the past 43+ years.  That's it.  The Industry continues to claim that they can take care of it.  I would think that if you really wanted to take care of it, you would've done it 43 years ago when the HPA was introduced.  FOSH, NWHA and IWHA have all proven they can have sound horse shows with zero violations at every show.  Why can't the Industry do it?  Well...we all know the answer to that.

So, lots of reading for the weekend in between running around and getting ready for next week's holiday (in America).  Enjoy!

Also, as a bonus, we ask that you PLEASE SIGN the below petition!  We need all the help we can get!  Feel free to share this as well!

House of Representatives, Senate: Recognize that sponsorship and passage of the PAST Act, an amendment to the Horse Protection Act, will help to create value in the Tennessee Walking Horse and economic advantages to its industry.

NEWS and ARTICLES - Visit Billy Go Boy for LOTS of Links; Something Important to Think About

The articles about the hearing are pouring in, and Billy Go Boy has done the hard work for me!  Thanks, BGB!

However, I do want to point out one very upsetting article.

Marty Irby, our new champion for the TWH who has experienced soring his entire life first hand, contacted the police about a horribly threatening text message sent to him on his phone.  Read the article for more.

Marty testified at the hearing on November 13, explaining about his own experience within a lifetime of dealing with soring.  Since coming out against soring and working so hard to help end it, Marty's wife has left him, his parents won't speak to him, an entire industry has sent him death threats.  He has had to move out of Tennessee to keep himself safe. 

Here's the comment posted on the above article by his father, Ty Irby.

Here is a picture and two videos Ty Irby posted on his Facebook page.  These were taken BEFORE Marty decided to leave the industry.  (You can click the photos to make them larger to see the comments.)



(I should probably point out that a lot of those within the TWH industry believe that Marty is being paid by the HSUS to do this.  Believe me, he is not.  But they're going to spread whatever lies they want to try to justify that making money off of abusing animals is okay.  And never mind that Marsha Blackburn was paid $70,000 by the BL industry to fight to stop the PAST Act...)

Please note: I AM NOT ENDORSING GOING ON IRBY'S PAGE TO FLAME HIM.  I discourage such actions because it gets us nowhere.  People like Ty are not going to be convinced to make changes based on nasty comments on his page.  These have been taken as screenshots from Facebook, and readers can make their own decisions about what's been posted here.

The reason I post this is so people can see how the people within the TWH industry react when "one of their own" makes the choice to admit they've done wrong and they need to help stop it.  In my opinion, it's clear that money and fame are more important than family values and ethics.  And in my opinion, it's also proof that those who abuse animals or who support animal abuse have no problem projected that abuse on their fellow human beings.

Ten more co-sponsors joined on November 14!  I bet that means the wonderful presentation our sound horse warriors did WORKED!  We're up to 233!

The entire list of sponsors is available at this link, where you can keep an eye on this bill.  It's amazing what we can do, folks, when we work together for a common goal.  I am amazed and proud of every single one of you who has stood up and said no more.  We keep creeping closer to winning this war.  So be sure to keep writing, calling, faxing, and emailing everyone who hasn't cosponsored.  We need at least 51 people in the Senate to get this sucker passed!

Also, be sure to check out Billy Go Boy's website at this link to read articles that have been popping up all over concerning the hearing and the bill.  It's amazing the worldwide attention we are getting, especially from people who don't even own horses.  It's so incredibly obvious how the abuse is continuing, and people are listening to the data and information we are giving to them.  I am thrilled to know that we are getting the world on our side!

Have a happy weekend everyone, and enjoy your Tennessee Walking Horses!

HR 1518 HEARING RESULTS - Amazing Support For the Sound Horse

Here is the video via YouTube of today's Energy and Commerce Committee hearing about the PAST Act.  I will be transcribing it and posting it here so folks can have it in writing.  It'll just take me a few days.

Of course, you can make your own judgments.  My own are after the video.

Please send your thanks to Jan Shakowsky, Lee Terry, Ed Whitfield and Steve Cohen for helping us by getting this hearing on the floor.

I cannot tell everyone enough how incredibly proud I am of Donna Bennefield, Teresa Bippen, Dr. Ron DeHaven, Marty Irby, and James Hickey, Jr.  They had facts to back up their information, their stories were strong and their convictions true.  They were able to answer every question strongly and were johnny-on-the-spot with their facts and information.  Heck, when people couldn't get a straight answer out of the opposing persons, they came back and got the correct answer from those who are for the Act.  Even when faced with deflecting questions, they brought the conversation back to the HPA and did not dwell on other horse industry issues.

Dr. John Bennett and Mr. Julius Johnson weren't able to backup any of their information, and Johnson continually deferred to others when he didn't have the facts in front of him.  Dr. John Bennett couldn't do anything but say the exact same thing over and over again, and I imagine he's going to make the BL folks very unhappy with his answers.  Marsha Blackburn, who received $70,000 from the BL industry, was rude, crass, and downright mean when she didn't get the answers she wanted when she tried to deflect and point the finger elsewhere.  Not only that, but she left during the hearing, came back, and spent the rest of her time messing around on her computer.  Seems like $70K that was poorly spent to me.

No matter what, I think it was quite clear that the truth came out about how soring is still rampant and stacks and chains need to go.  The question is whether or not the PAST Act will move to the Senate (it has pretty much passed in the House with 225 co-sponsors).  It isn't a law yet, but I personally think we are closer than ever to stopping this nightmare, and we are going to see and end to soring and the BL very, very soon.

We will keep you updated...if this goes to the Senate, then we have A LOT more hard work to do!  Stay tuned!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


Today is the day for the horses.  At 10:00 am in Washington, DC on November 13, 2013, history will be made when it comes to saving the Tennessee Walking Horse.

A prayer for the horses.

I pray that you are saved from continually being abused.
I pray that your nightmare ends.
I pray that our government will actually do something right for once and help uphold a federal law.
I pray that choosing to do what's right over what's easy will prevail
Blessings to the horses...your pain will be over soon.

Monday, November 11 is Veterans' Day
so PLEASE get your letters in to the E&C Sub-Committee by Tuesday morning!

See the below post for who to send to with contact information.

Calls and faxes work best.
Be short and to the point.
Be kind and courteous; make friends with the person on the other line
so they will be sure to give your request to the Congressperson.
Back your information up with facts.

Here is a link to the current supporters of the PAST Act.
Please add the following groups to the Horse Organizations section:
Carolina Walkers, Inc. (South Carolina)
Delaware Equine Council
Minnesota Horse Council

You can also note that the new World Walking Horse Assocation is also for the PAST Act,
although they have not added themselves to the list yet.
(More about WWHA after November 13th.)

We can do this!  WE CAN SAVE THE HORSE!

Monday, November 4, 2013


Well everyone, we have our work cut out for us now.  On November 13th, the PAST Act will be heard by the Energy and Commerce Sub-Committee.  We are past the 218 mark of co-sponsors needed to get the Act to the floor, so now we need the E&C Sub-Committee to take it to the Senate.

We have a serious problem: Marsha Blackburn has pretty much been paid by the Big Lick industry to keep the PAST Act from passing.  They had a special dinner for her at the Celebration and presented her with about $70,000.  Now I don't see Blackburn as much more than one of the typical money hungry liars that we have in Congress after watching this video.

However, if she gets her claws in, then we are back to square one.

This is the time for us to push, and PUSH HARD.

Here are the folks we need to push on.  FAXES AND PHONE CALLS WORK BEST.  And it's best to contact the DC office over the state office, but I've provided numbers for both.  There are free fax websites online--I personally use gotfreefax.com.  Your local Walmart or Target might have faxing capabilities as well, and all Office Maxes have faxing available.

Also, please go to this website to get the list of current co-sponsors.  If you don't see your State Rep or Senator on the list, then get after them!

Make your letter and phone call short and sweet.  Give recent facts: that of the 26% of TWHBEA members who voted, 63% voted in favor of the PAST Act.  In comparison, 35% voted in the BOD elections.  Explain that Wheelon was NOT found innocent, and that the case my be reintroduced to the Tennessee Grand Jury.  Point out that soring is now a felony in Tennessee, and that the Industry has proven they cannot police themselves.  And most importantly: this will cost our government no money to instigate the PAST Act.  You can refer them to this blog if you need to.
