Yesterday, I wrote about ANN ROMNEY credits horseback riding for almost eliminating her symptoms from multiple sclerosis!
I wrote about this because Ann was quoted as saying:
“Horses are amazing teachers,” said Romney, who visited with other patients who like her use riding as therapy. “I love these wonderful, sweet companions that teach us so much.”
I, personally, was hopeful that this kind of thinking could benefit the horses should her husband be voted President.
AI KARUMBA!! HOWDY HOWDY HOWDY! THE SHIZ HIT THE FAN….
As luck would have it, exactly when my post was publishing, another email was circulating about Ann Romney being involved in a lawsuit over selling a drugged horse who eventually turned up lame.
So, I quickly added the new Ann Romney news item onto my Ann Romney post on the Horse and Man website yesterday.
Here it is:
THIS JUST IN! (6/27/12)
This story was in my inbox after I had posted the above.
My only comment is that I am guessing there might be more to the story since Ann Romney is only one of the owners of the horse in question. In my personal experience, my trainer would ask the vet to do things to my show horses that I wasn’t aware… which is one reason I no longer show.
So, my decision on Ann is still open until I learn – if possible – her actual involvement with the drugs and the sale of this horse. I would like to think that this lawsuit opened her eyes. However, she is still using the same trainer, so who knows.
Here is a very controversial article regarding Ann and one of her other horses.
Many of you wrote to me saying I was totally ignorant and people like Ann Romney throw away horses that aren’t top athletes…
Hmmmm. I don’t know anything about her or that… Cannot judge that part…
I do still hope that we don’t know the entire story – however, I have to say that it doesn’t look good.
But down deep, for me, if Mitt is elected, I’m going to hold out and work on the part of Ann that loves the horses and values their good work in helping her through MS – maybe by watering that seed, we can help it grow… for the good of all the horses.
