Excellent Wall Street Journal article today!


"Along with the boom came backyard breeding, as owners without the discipline or financial muscle to obtain award-winning genes settled for whatever nature produced. More than two million Americans own horses, and more than a third of those owners have a household income of less than $50,000."

See, the WSJ will actually come out and point out that poor people breeding horses is a problem for the horses! I like the WSJ - they are not politically correct, and they do not care.

And this Morgan Silver is right on the money too:

"Ms. Silver scoffs at the idea that amateur breeders like Ms. Perea should get government help. "A horse is a luxury item," she says, bristling. "You have no business owning them if you can't pay for them. Are we going to give tax breaks to yacht owners, too?"

Amen, honey, you are preaching to the choir!
