One of my boarders just sent this to me....
The new law also protects polo ponies from the ghastly scene of horses staggering and dying at a Wellington polo match last year after ingesting an improperly mixed and dosed substance that had been given to them. The new law requires these substances to be administered by a qualified equine veterinarian.
A) I don't get what this has to do with an anti-slaughter bill.
B) "The new law requires these substances to be administered by a qualified equine veterinarian."
I thought the polo ponies were given selenium, albeit a toxic dose. This law can't seriously demand that all doses of such supplements be physically administered by a vet?
I hope this is just a case of mis-reporting. Otherwise, the law makers in Tallahassee may have a very mistaken notion of what those polo ponies were given. So many people still think those polo ponies were given "performance enhancing drugs" (AKA some kind of illegal mix of steroids) because of what the local news erroneously reported . . .
If any one has the actual verbage of the bill, I would very much like to read it.
