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.

A small step back to where we were before....

But at least it's a step in the right direction. House Appropriations Committee votes to defund horse slaughter inspections.

While it's important that the defunding be reestablished and we need to encourage our Representatives to vote for this and our Senators to get it in their version, we absolutely must continue to work to get  The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act H.R. 2966, S.1176 through at last! We need to cover all angles to get horse slaughter finished in our country.
