Sorry for the extended absence on this blog. There are some times I’m a bit busier than others and then there are other times my ADD flares up and I just don’t have the focus to sit and write a bunch. Other times it’s kinda nice to take a bit of a break from the constant horror of slaughter, although that’s never really possible. I’m sure you have all followed along the various ups and downs lately, but so far it’s looking good that, once again, inspections for horse meat will be defunded and we’ll be right back where we were not so long ago. That’s all good news and I always said I would happily wrap this blog up once slaughter was no longer a threat for our horses. Let’s just say we have miles to go before we sleep as good ole Slaughterhouse Sue still has any and all things equine in her crosshairs and she’s getting downright creative in her quest to eat her way through the equine population. Which kinda brings us to the reason for this drive-by blog today….
As most of us know by now, when Slaughterhouse Sue runs one of her organizations broke or embarrasses herself to the point of hiding under a rock for a while, she normally comes back under a new banner and redoubles her efforts to wipe out our equine population. This time is no different. Allow me to introduce you to Suey’s newest business venture….Sue Wallis’ Wyoming Meats. I truly wish I was joking about this, but I’m not. (http://wyomingmeats.com/) She is now `Food Freedom’ fighter and seeks to circumvent the current lack of commercial slaughter by doing a co-op kinda deal with meat. Sure, she wants to slaughter anything and everything, but make no mistake, this is Suey thumbing her nose at the lack of horse slaughter and seeking revenge on equines as she still blames a riding accident for the death of her spouse.
As per usual, Suey doesn’t provide us with much detail as far as her business model. I’m going to go ahead and surmize that she isn’t really a `detail’ kinda person given her past failures. However, her and her inbred clan have been fighting for their right to drink and sell their straight from the tit milk for quite some time and obviously it sparked an idea for our fearless horse hater. They have been in and out of court fighting for their right to have what basically amounts to share cropping of milk. In other words, they sell shares in the milk cow, which will still live on their ranch and you get your supply of unpasteurized milk. Nobody gets in trouble because there are no rules about what you can and can’t do if you own the cow and aren’t technically selling the milk. I’m probably oversimplifying, but that’s the gist of it. She has extrapolated out from this and now offers meat as a `shared harvest’, with horse being on the list. All this is being done under the heading of CSA or Community Supported Agriculture. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that her family breeds Belgians and Haflingers which happen to be favorites of the slaughter industry. Where Suey is going to get herself into very big trouble is that she is calling herself a broker. Last time I checked, brokers facilitate the sales of things and it isn’t legal to sell meat of any kind without an inspection and it’s outright illegal to sell horse meat for any form of human consumption in several states. Things that make you go hmmmmm.
I have said before that, as a compromise, I wouldn’t be against a knacker truck or horses being humanely put down at home and processed if people are bound and determined to eat their animals. I’m sure Suey will tell all the anti-slaughter people that this is a humane way for processing horses. She’ll basically spout anything in order to fill her gut with Trigger Burgers. I want to know how this is going to help the unwanted horse population she has told everybody she is so concerned about. How is it going to help the horse industry as a whole? It’s not, it’s only going to line her pockets and allow her to wedge one of her pudgy toes in the door of horse slaughter. I know we’re fighting on a lot of different fronts to see an end to slaughter once and for all, but let’s not let this new venture of Suey’s to slip under the radar. She’s thumbing her nose at the law and all of us and, once again, horses are the pawns. Enough is enough.
