[RC] Slaughter and foreign shipment - Ranelle Rubin

So, Karen it sounds like the "unsuspecting" foreigners somehow discovering the industry "dirty secret" is appropriate..?

It is such a fine line...bad laws create bad situations...if only everyone could be responsible for their horses all their lives.

FWIW..The last endurance horse I retired is now owned by a 14 yr old boy who loves him to death..! He thinks this 15'3" Arab who he can ride anywhere and who will go through anything when his friend's horses won't..is cool! Stellar is 20 now and lives a great life..20ac. of green grass and a kid who rides him a couple times a week.

The money in the meat sales in Europe and Japan, etc., is incredible. Then the company operates at a virtual tax loss here and is protected as "foreign commerce".......so "yes". It is a BIG business and, because horses are not regulated as a food animal here, they can buy horse flesh very cheaply - .30 - ..50 a pound. To buy horse flesh in the countries where horses are eaten is very expensive as the various medications (bute) and antibiotics and dewormers and hormones (Regumate) are STRICTLY regulated and documented for horses which go into the food chain. So it costs a TON more to produce "clean" horses so they buy our dirty (read medicated) horses and send them over for the unsuspecting consumers.

So as of June 29th they are shut down again?

I can't believe how much legal wrangling they have been doing to stay "open". Is there really that much $ in the industry to fund all the lawyers?
