Horses pulling up lame at auction

The slaughter exports for January 2008 were 9,944 horses. In January of 2007, before the first plant closed, we slaughtered or exported to slaughter an almost identical number (9,975). Blaming horse prices on a lack of slaughter is therefore impossible. In many cases (like the Oren Dorell story in USA Today), we provided this information to the authors before they wrote their pro-slaughter propaganda. It begs the question of who is paying for this propaganda campaign?
