About Friend to Horses

As horse owners, lovers and advocates, we take a stand against horse slaughter and against the mismanagement of America's Wild Horses & Burros by the BLM, an agency run by horse haters, ranchers and public lands users who want to eliminate wild horses in the wild. It's clear there are evil greedy people who want to kill horses in order to line their pockets with blood money and it's clear that our own government fails to see the national treasure we have in free roaming wild horses. We stand against these people and their actions against our horses, domestic and wild. This blog has been set up specifically to help others determine who these horse haters are so they can boycott them and be aware of their evil intentions through publication of their identity here. Anyone who has publicly confirmed support for horse slaughter or the elimination of America's wild horses is fair game - they may very well be promoted in all their evil ugliness right here for all the world to see.

    Any time people feel a threat to their way of doing things–they panic and do what they think they must do to save their way of life. It’s an obvious response to what is the growing empowerment of equine lovers and supporters that know there is a better way–people who have had enough of the runaway greed and mismanagement of our responsibility to the magnificent horse

    The horse “overpopulation problem” is a human created problem of over-breeding and mismanagement. We must and are changing things–this is the pressure the pro-slaughter and unconscious over-breeding advocates are feeling.

    I have been an advocate of the horse my entire life. I now speak professionally, write and teach about conscious marketing and behavior practices–the way of the future for the equine industry as a whole, and individuals as catalysts. My focus is education and reaching as many people as possible. The horse deserves our conscious engagement with them–and our help.
