Re:  Roy Exum: This Jerk Needs Stewarding

I agree with Roy on every count. There is not enough punishment available to this man and his cohorts to give justice for all the magnificent horses he maimed and tortured.  That video was the most sickening thing I have ever seen in my entire life. I have cried all weekend.  

Plus he was totally unrepentant in the undercover video. What did he say? He will always be around?  Please say it ain't so. The saddest part is these cruel sadists do not even think they have done anything wrong.  

Those that have turned a blind eye to such abuse, they have to answer for their lack of action too. if not here, when they meet their maker. The abuse is so visual and apparent, they cannot claim they did not know. Any alteration of the horse with even pads or chains should be outlawed as well. Man's inhumanity to animals never ceases to shock me.  

Calling the  historical Shelbyville show a "Celebration of the Tennessee Walking Horse" is like calling Michael Vick the "Dali Lama of the Pit Bull. "  Plus you know the blood on their hands from their cruelty paid those high priced lawyer bills. 

No plea agreements.
