Why we're here

We are taking a stand against horse slaughter returning to the US and are striving to stop the transportation of horses to other countries for slaughter. Some of us are working in those other countries as well.

We are taking this stance as Pagans and Heathens, at a time when it seems some have decided that eating slaughtered horse meat in ritual is somehow cool, edgy and "ancestral." Therefore we want to show that that minority does not represent all of the Pagan and Heathen communities. Many of us worship Horse Deities, many of us are horse people who may see our horses as sacred charges who we care for to honor these Deities. Not by killing but by striving to give them good lives.

American Quarter Horse Association and slaughter

This is an older article from the American Horse Defense Fund, which sadly still shows the standing position of the AQHA. Which is, to support slaughter and PMU as a way for their breeders to breed as many horses as possible and still make as much profit as possible, with no regard to the humane treatment of horses. But they say it so much better:

The Truth About the AQHA and Horse Slaughter

So, yes, this is another link post. So to add that personal touch, here's a baby photo, taken right after she got out of stall quarantine, of Saorsa, my QH PMU foal, who is now 3 1/2 and also running about at the top of this blog and at the side just before she came home. This is what the AQHA thinks should be exploited. QHs are wonderful horses, the people of the AQHA are despicable.
