In support of the ongoing efforts of Shane and Sia Barbi, Ken Wahl and all of those who support them in their efforts to Stop Horse Slaughter.
See their project
The Petition

To the Government of Canada and the United States of America

Allowing the slaughter of horses for meat (and for any other reason!) opens the door to abuse and great loss - is any of this necessary - the answer is NO.


Many humans are greedy opportunists. To such people, making a $ is everything. No matter the consequences, the cost to humans and non-human animals - the road to abuse lies wide open.

Even if ‘laws’ are put in place regarding how the horses will be ‘cultivated’, ‘housed’ and slaughtered the door to abuse is open. There are not enough eyes and ears to regulate and enforce such a law and overtime regulators get sloppy and apathetic.


People have many sources from which to obtain protein. In general people eat too much protein. There is no valid, logical reason why anyone would need to consume the flesh of horses. The one and only reason - because they ‘feel’ entitled to do so.  This is a whim not a reason. Why do so many people believe it is OK to breed another living being simply for food? These people who ‘believe’ do not think, do not see, do not sense and therefore do not feel responsible. Not a reason but a conceit to condemn another species to a life of misery and death.


Horses have so much to share. If man subjugates a horse, so much is lost. If man creates a partnership of respect with a horse so much is gained. Over the ages, those humans who choose to work with a horse - rather than work a horse, learned of the beautiful and sensitive nature of this great animal. Treated with respect and allowed to thrive, a horse gladly partners with man. Those who cared learned of the horse’s intelligence, that each horse, like each human has its own unique personality. They learned that a horse could/would share love, warmth, joy and grief. They learned that a horse can save a human from losing the best of humanity - sensitivity, humility. We also lose the beautiful, irreplaceable sight of seeing the grace and joy of a horse in its natural state. So much to lose - nothing to gain.

Note -

1.0 Use of Foods, Herbs, Nutraceuticals and Alternative Medicines:

When choosing to use any of the items or protocols in the article above, it is your responsibility to ensure safe use of the item/protocol. Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines all have drug interactions, most have health issue contradictions, some have side effects. Use of substances and protocols are your responsibility. Prior to use of any substance or protocol make sure you do your research - check for all cautions, contradictions,interactions, side effects. If in doubt do not use the substance or protocol. If the substance, or protocol is contradicted for your animal do not use. If your animal has an underlying condition you are not aware of substances may conflict with that condition.

2.0 The Real Meaning of Holistic…

Food, herbs, nutraceuticals and alternative medicines are NOT ‘holistic’ they are a substance and MAY, or may NOT be ‘NATURAL’. It is important to keep in mind that the supplement industry is just as unethical as BigPharma, the Food and Pet Food Industry, and unfortunately many veterinarians.

If you use a ‘natural’ substance (i.e. an herb) you are using a natural substance, this is not synonymous with holistic.

Holistic is a way of approaching life, and within that - overall health, and wellbeing.

Please do not expect a natural substance to miraculously remedy a health or behavioral situation. A natural substance may be used to treat symptoms. However, if the factors causing the underlying issue are not properly identified, analyzed and addressed you do not have a remedy.

Remedy requires a comprehensive approach that identifies root cause, seeks to remove items that trigger, cause or otherwise contribute to issues, and builds a complete, and detailed approach to immediate treatment, remedy, and maintenance of long-term health = holistic.
