SHOW Correspondence With USDA



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - Dr. Doyle Meadows, CEO of SHOW and The Celebration, Inc. has released additional correspondence that he penned to USDA Officials.  Below is the content of his correspondence to Dr. Cezar.

Dr. Cezar:
At our most recent HIO meeting on June 9, Lori Northrup took great pride in stating that FOSH had 11 shows, 1,904 entries, 607 horses and NO violations. I could not help but wonder if USDA had been present to thermograph, swab, observe movement, palpate and digitally radiograph the 607 horses, how many violations would there have been?  I guess we will never know, will we? Additionally, in material that you distributed at the aforementioned HIO meeting concerning shows attended by USDA, 9 of the 12 were SHOW shows. Since that time USDA has attended several other SHOW shows.  It appears that about 90 percent(%) of the shows USDA is attending are SHOW shows.  This discrimination by the Department directed at SHOW is not going unnoticed.
