Today, March 1st is National Horse Protection Day. I grew up with two horses, so anything related to horses is near and dear to my heart.
Want to get involved? Here are 5 ways you can help according to the website, HorseProtectionDay.com
1.) Help out a neighbor horse by feeding, bathing, riding or walking one that may need some attention due to recent owner illness or financial disability.
2.) Foster or sponsor a horse at your local shelter until they can find the horse a home.
3.) Plan an adoption event on National Horse Protection Day (or anytime!) in partnership with your local humane organization to find homes for their adoptable horses.
4.) Put a team of horse lovers together to raise awareness in your city about horse slaughter and the number of horses that need homes.
5.)Organize a horse food drive and distribute the supplies to horses in need in your community.
6.) Put the banner from this post (below) on your blog and link up to show your support!

write obama and your congressmen to stop the ban on slaughter of horses…..obama lifted the 5 yr ban in nov, during thanksgiving in another bill (i guess payback to someone who had supported him). the slaughter houses are already up and running in some of the mid western states…..
