In 2008, The National Cutting Horse Association said clones could be shown. In 2009, The American Quarter Horse Association featured a forum on equine cloning and my bet is that clones will be approved in 2010.
Former Senator Conrad Burns, who scrapped many protections for the wild horses, registered as a lobbyist for the American Quarter Horse Association in 2008 with Gage LLC.
Conrad Burns was also a co-founder of Slaughterhouse Sue’s (Wyoming Rep. Sue Wallis) United Organizations of the Horse, a trade organization that is working to reinstate horse slaughter in the U.S.
The American Quarter Horse Association donates money to (sponsors) Slaughterhouse Sue’s United Organization of the Horse. This means the American Quarter Horse Association is pushing for cloning, while at the same time donating funding to Slaughterhouse Sue’s push for horse slaughter in the US. So, they want to kill real horses, but they support cloned horses!
In 2007, ViaGen hired Leah Wilkinson to manage it’s food policy activities and outreach to the food industry. Wilkinson was the Dir. of Food Policy for the National Cattleman’s Beef Association, which is also a sponsor of the United Organizations of the Horse.
JoLynn Worley, a spokeswoman for the BLM, told me that the BLM does random DNA testing on the wild horses “periodically” at the capture site and the holding facilities. On the BLM website, it states that: “The BLM actively monitors the genetics of each herd by sending genetic samples to Dr. Gus Cothran at Texas A&M University.”
Can there be anything more depressing than the oppressive superstition of today’s food shoppers – PREDOMINANTLY FEMALE – when faced with what they perceive as “bad food”? I doubt it. Logic doesn’t get a look in. Although faced with galloping bills, a grave world food shortage and unassailable evidence that the high-salt, high-fat and high-sugar processed diet that they favor is killing their loved ones with kindness, consumers are opposed to technological solutions.
