Since this blog has been in operation all of one whole day, Naughty Tobiano has harvested both post topics. Clearly she wants attention. I was going to feature some of the more prominent players on the United Horsemen front, but since she screams the loudest, we’ll give her attention first.
The first thing NT will tell you is that she is not just one person, but several. I’m sure she talks to several people and maybe even some of those are real life ones and not imaginary friends or internet contacts. However, the blog posts are mostly written in the same voice and that voice would belong to one self important, delusional heifer in Missouri. She considers herself a life long horsewoman, but what she really is a self important, delusional turd that was outed for selling horses to kill buyers when she was calling herself a rescue. After getting busted and the resulting uproar, she withdrew her non-profit application and became a rescue hater. Her latest line is that rescues buy up all the cheap horses and now poor little 4-H kids can’t afford a nice cheap mount. Of course this is complete and utter BS, because what her real problem is that rescues HATE people like her. Besides, I was a 4-H kid and I wasn’t showing $100 horses from backwoods auctions and neither was anybody else in my club. In fact, some of us went on to show nationally and at the world level and make our career in the horse industry. That means it was a sole source of income, not that we had a bunch of culls hoarded on a dry lot where we hoodwinked some local kids into taking lessons from us. We did it without having to slaughter a single horse too.
The MO Heifer accumulates an ungodly amount of horses on her dry lot. They regularly drop dead too. She uses them for her `lessons’ and drill team. She claims to train them. I could go on and on, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I give you one of her `students’ and one of her training jobs…and this was a picture published in a newspaper, so I can only imagine how bad the rest of this performance was. Because I believe the kid is likely innocent, her face has been `altered’.
Most of the examples that NT will use in her blog are actually stories the MO Heifer has told all across the net. Of course all these stories are very dramatic and extreme and they all end with NT saving the day. Usually at least one animal will be dead or horrifically maimed by the end of the story too. She lacks the self awareness to realize that if she knew WTF she was doing, the crisis could be averted all together.
Originally, I wasn’t going to name and shame her, but she’s pissed me off today. We are talking of one Mendy Mcewen. A quick google of her name or Jackknife Hollow, or Show Me Thunder drill team, will turn up a wealth of information. You will find several nuggets like these:
These are samples….I could post an entire blog with comments about her and her equine practices. I think the ones I have posted will give a general idea on what we’re dealing with now.
Today’s hilarity from NT is that having the `choice’ to slaughter is no different than the abortion issue. I can’t make this stuff up. The PSAs mostly will tell you they wouldn’t choose to slaughter their own horses, but they want people to have the choice. First they want to tell us that horses are not pets, but now they say they are like an unborn child???? Huh? Let’s be clear on this, I do not care what you choose to do with your horse, dog or cat’s body after they pass away. That is up to you. What I do care about, and what there are still laws about is how you treat it while it is still living. The slaughter process is inhumane and cruel to horses. Period. Just like it is not your `choice’ to abuse your children, it should not be your `choice’ to abuse horses.
So there you have it. Naughty Tobiano has had her attention from me. This is NOT a blog about her nor is it going to be devoted to addressing her illogical and moronic arguments for slaughter. I may summarize some of her dumber shit once a week or so, but there are other things to discuss. Speculating on who I am, what I do will be a waste of your time. Never underestimate my ability to find shit out.
