Horse Slaughter plants in New Mexico and Iowa lost their bid to begin killing American horses, next week, when a Federal Judge granted a Temporary Restraining Order against their operation this day.

Front Range Equine Rescue, HSUS and others had filed suit against the USDA and their arguments were deemed valid by a Federal Judge on August 2nd, 2013.
