Horses for Humanity The United Organizations will provide horse meat at their cost to Wyoming relief organizations for distribution to those in need. Once the roadblocks to federal inspection of horsemeat in the US can be lifted, the United Organizations of the Horse is planning to implement a partnership with national and international relief organizations to provide wholesome, healthy, humanely harvested horsemeat to the hungry. Through this program horse owners have the option of donating a horse that would otherwise be disposed of. Owners are assured a quick, humane death for their animal, and the comfort of knowing that the meat is going to a good and useful purpose.

Bill Brewer Named to AAEP Board of Directors billbrewer Bill Brewer The American Association of Equine Practitioners welcomed Bill Brewer, former head of the American Quarter Horse Association, to the AAEP board of directors at the 55th Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nev. He will serve as the equine industry board member. Brewer, of Amarillo, Texas, served as executive vice president of the American Quarter Horse Association from 1992 until his retirement in March 2009. Brewer worked with the AQHA’s five-member executive committee to coordinate the activities of the world’s largest breed registry and equine organization. He oversaw the more than 300 employees at AQHA and the adjacent American Quarter Horse Foundation, which underwent renovation in 2007. Brewer is past chairman of the American Horse Council’s Horse Show Advisory Committee and currently serves as an AHC Trustee. In 1995 Brewer, an animal science graduate from Oklahoma State University, received the university’s Animal Science Distinguished Graduate honor. In 1999 he was one of two people selected as Texas 4-H Alumni of the Year and in 2003 he received the Livestock Publications Council Headliner of the Year Award. More recently The National Cowboy Symposium bestowed Brewer with a Special Recognition Award. As a youth, Brewer was a regular rodeo competitor, leading his career involvement with horses and livestock. In 2007 he was inducted into the Amarillo Tri-State Fair & Rodeo Hall of Fame. He enjoys riding American Quarter Horses, attending equine sporting events and playing golf in his spare time. The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
The Gunners are often unmistakable for their distinctive markings, laid-back attitude and tremendous athletic ability that pays off big in the show pen. According to Equi-Stat records, the stallion has sired earners of $1,034,496. In October, the NRHA recognized him as a million-dollar sire. With more Gunner-sired horses entering the show pen every day, there’s no doubt his stock as a sire will continue to rise – whether his offspring can hear or not. To some, like Rohus, the Gunner-bred horses are practically priceless. Every time he sees a new baby with a white face and blue eyes, it raises his hopes. “I breed for them, and every time I get one it’s just a blessing,” Rohus said. “I think, ‘Man, there’s another special one.’ ”

You know, maybe you know about QHs and other domestic breeds, but spouting the ignorant lies that breed associations like the AQHA get people to believe so people will buy their horses instead of adopt Mustangs tells me all I need to know about your 'knowledge' of Mustangs. They may be short but 99% of them are NOT 'thin chested', and if roman noses are a fault, especially in the Spanish-type mustangs like the Kiger above, then you must hate Lipizzaners, Andalusians, and Lusitanos, too. They're easy keepers, have extremely thick, hard hooves, and very few genetic and health problems. Unlike QHs and just about every other domestic breed. One example was the very expensive QH who was boarded two stalls down from him who was completely useless half the time because of allergies and other multiple health problems.
