RE: [RC] What's she worth - heidi

The ban, as I understand it, was to stop slaughter for human consumption -- not pet food.  Obviously, human food has a higher value. 
That's my understanding as well.
There is a lot of internet buzz in reference to the shippers going to Canada.  I don't understand quite how though?  Its a pain getting thru that border with one horse, how would you take a trailer load.. I'm sure at least 25 head??  I can believe Mexico would be easier....
The regulations for crossing the border with horses going directly to a slaughter facility are not as rigid as those for individual horses going to "public" places.
