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.

When Horse Slaughter Comes to Town

"The flesh of 'unwanted horses' is acknowledged to be
toxic when consumed by humans. And who among the
politicians, equine practitioners, and veterinarians
lobbying to prevent a ban on the slaughter of American
horses - in the name of equine welfare - would wish to
be responsible for the deleterious impact for human
welfare associated with promoting the slaughter of
toxic horses?"
