Fitch on War Horse

Just read the latest from R.T. Fitch, President of Wild Horse Freedom Federation, on the movie War Horse (check out his blog). That brought me to signing up for this blog.  There is a travesty taking place in our world and that is the slaughter of horses for human consumption.  In my tiny way I’m trying to do what I can to help stop this inhumane treatment of our equine friends.  Our numbers are growing. Won’t you join us?    One good place to start is with R.T. Fitch’s blog.  Then using your search engine look for “horse slaughter”.  It isn’t pretty and like me you might find the images will be haunting you for the rest of you life, but it is the brutal reality of what is happening today.  It is what we intend to stop.

The name of this bog is “spiritdogs”.   Spirit Dogs is an ancient American Indian term that means “horses”.  (They had great respect for horses and understood just how special they were. )  Anyway, when I was thinking about what to call this blog it just came to me.  Horses are great spirits and we need to help them.  They are calling to us.   Thanks to Mr. Spielberg for his movie War Horse.  It is timely in calling attention to the masses about horses and butchers.  Hopefully it will serve to move legislation to ban horse slaughter once and for all.  Contact your representatives and the White House and demand that a permanent ban be issued immediately.  And, “May the horse be with you”!
