Horsey Headlines for May 6, 2009

I was reading a bunch of news articles about horses, and found too many I wanted to share to post on each individually. So I decided to start a new "Horsey Headlines" feature on my blog, where I'll link to a handful or so horse-related articles every Wednesday.

Want to read a heart-warming, hope-inspiring rescue story? Check out this one about an Arabian horse who was saved from slaughter 33 years ago — and went on to become a winner many times over.

This story about a barn fire started by the hay spontaneously combusting as to why you need to store hay in a well-ventilated place away from your barn. In fact, I think I might write a longer post on this subject at a later date.

On May 1, 2009, horse slaughter was legalized in Montana after Governor Schweitzer failed to do anything either way about the bill when it was put in front of him. Makes me wonder if lobbyists convinced him to do nothing, allowing the bill to become law through no direct action of his own. Also, don't miss the excellent anti-slaughter responses to this claim that horse slaughter is necessary.

And finally, a call for help from an Oklahoma horse rescue that just rescued 51 starved horses and needs feed and monetary donations.

What do you think of the new feature? I'd love to hear my readers' thoughts on my "Horsey Headlines" idea!

Oh, good idea; makes for interesting reading.
I sent Panama two treats since he is going to have a special day soon! :-)

That would keep us in touch with the horse world outside of our blogs.

There's a world outside our blogs?


Thanks, Jane! :o)
