My Comment: I can't quite understand the use of the word "majestic" in reference to horses. Is he trying to placate us by saying, in a roundabout way, that they will do the best they can? Majestic or not, they will still die and the USDA simply does not have the budget to ensure our current food supply, much less horse meat for export. Plus, his blog only means a plant license hasn't been applied for yet. He doesn't know if one is on the way, nor does he say how long the licensing period can take.
Simply put, Deputy Administrator Derfler's blog only reflects what he knew at the time he wrote it. Things might already have changed for the worse. Take a deep breath and keep calling. Ask the President for an executive order banning the slaughter and export for slaughter of American horses. Remind him of the legislation for the same that he co-sponsored as a Senator.
Call the President
