Mother of Blair Batson Patient Speaks Out Against Radical Animal Rights Groups



The following Facebook post was shared with Walking Horse Report by Gina Burton.  Ms. Burton’s child has received care from the University of Mississippi’s Blair Batson Children’s Hospital.  Ms. Burton is outraged over the tactics of the radical animal rights groups such as the All American Walking Horse Alliance and Friends of Sound Horses (FOSH).  Clant Seay, reportedly paid by these groups, has been the mouthpiece for such irresponsible tactics as the ones that forced the Blair Batson Children’s Hospital to disassociate itself with the Mississippi Charity Horse Show and forfeit the close to $50,000 in donations they would have received from the show.

Facebook Post:

I am a mother of a daughter who is a patient at Blair E. Batson hospital. We go there about 5 times per month for her very rare condition. We attended the horse show in Jackson 2 years ago and not once did I see an abused horse or scars or torture of any kind that you speak of. Y'all are a disgrace and for lack of a better word ignorant to what really goes on. Growing up, my next door neighbor of over 20+ years, raised walking horses. Our pastures joined and he also participates in these events. I think if they were abused I would know cause I saw them everyday. Seems as if you folks have nothing better to do. Get a life. Come walk these halls of the hospital like I have done for the last 3 years and you will see how every dime is needed. You stole from Children who can't fight back. But I am a mother who can and I will not stop!!! I am in no way representing Batson when I make this post cause goodness y'all have been harassing them and dragging their name thru the mud since January. Please feel free to contact me via email gbuton31@gmail.com. I promise you this, I will not stop until y'all are exposed for the filthy lying trash that y'all are. In other words you are stealing from children who fight everyday just to live with your slanderous crap. I just don't think you know who has now joined this fight...Cause I will expose each of you nationally if that's what it takes.
