This bill should have never been signed in the great state of Oklahoma. Especially when not even one person, I repeat, not one person, has filed to open up a slaughter house for horses. I think it will promote the killing of horses, just for the mere idea that someone could make money out of it. And how will the government make sure that each and every horse that is killed the right way? It’s like saying some unbiased third party would watch the slaughter of every chicken, turkey or cow. Not likely.
I really wish Gov. Mary Fallin and Mr. Obama would reconsider their choices on this matter. I have written to them both personally. If they could simply take this out of the bill the Gov. could regain my support and the support of many more Oklahomans. If not, it could hurt her chances for reelection, just like the experts are already saying. If you believe like I do, please share this post. Sometimes it is the people's voice that needs to create the change. And if you feel so inclined, write to the governor and the president too. It’s not too late. Act now before an innocent horse is killed by ignorant politician's misguided decisions.
Thank you for your time.

P.S. You can also listen to the song I wrote three years ago on this matter. "Free the Horses"
