This Website Drives AR Moonbats Insane
My Greatest Fans: Animal Rights Moonbats & SHARKIES.....
Here is the latest from the Animal Rights' Moonbats and the SHARKIES. Seems to me that this website bugs them so much they decided to show up at the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, break the law and take some video and then make up stories about it and do some editing so they could attempt to make the Rowell Ranch Rodeo look bad and in some way or other have it reflect on this website. As I have stated many, many times, I am a strong supporter of the First Amendment, so here is a newspaper article on "animal abuse" that supposedly took place at the Rowell Ranch Rodeo (Thought I wouldn't post it Pat? Think, and don't hurt yourself, again.).

You can see the highlights from the 2008 Rowell Family Rodeo at http://www.ktvu.com/news/16346348/detail.html. I wonder why the URL isn't available on the Rowell Family website yet.
Actually, the SHARKIES and Animal Right's Moonbat's posting this into this website's guestbook is a wonderful opportunity for me to update everyone on a couple of items before I comment on the article and video. By the way, I guess it was a slow week for eco-terrorist bombings, so at least by having the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, it gives the eco-terrorist something less unlawful to do to like taking illegal video and then editing it for their own purposes. I guess the Toy Tiger Truck that costs thousands of dollars (money that could be spent on REAL ABUSED ANIMALS) isn't as effective as the SHARKIES had hoped. Sound of flushing toliet - just think of all the animals that could benefit from the money spent on the the Toy Tiger Truck. Which leads me to my next point. YouTube recently shutdown the SHARKIES's site due to the fact that most of their videos are edited, which means, Omy gosh, they are not presenting the truth. . Also, the SHARKIES', namely Steve Hindi, got his hands slapped as the Illinois Department of Agriculture overturned their decision to ban the National High School Rodeo from Springfield, Illinois. Again something do with video was part of the reason. Hopefully, the dots are being connected here. Video, editings and not telling the truth. Seems it took the SHARKIES over a week to get the videos that they claimed showed animals at the National High School Finals Rodeo being abused were questionable. To validate this statement go to the SHARKIES' website and then go to the link to the IllinoisCorruption.com link. The first picture you see is two men and a calf. One of the men is kicking the calf. I highly doubt that this photo was taken at the National High School Rodeo Finals. Why, easy. Rules state that any one working in the arena has to wear full cowboy dress. That is long-sleeve shirt, cowboy hat, jeans and cowboy boots. None of the guys have that type of attire on. I have attended enough High School Rodeos to know that they would not be allowed in the arena. Staged picture? Furthermore, I direct you to the first picture on their home page. The picture of the hand with the so-called shocking device. Let's see if the SHARKIES can take the challenge to show the full-picture - meaning what person is attached to that hand. I would assume that you would show the whole picture of the person in order to get appropriate charges filed, right? The device in the hand - what is it - do you have a drawing of it and how it works. Who manufactures it and where can it be purchased? Now let me direct you to the second picture of the palomino horse laying on it's back with it's tongue hanging out. I have owned horses all my life - never have I seen a horse with a bright -Adobe-Photoshop-pink tongue with a triangular shape. Must be a new breed of horse. Another picture to review for fakeness, is located under their Shame on Cheyenne site. It used to show a bucking horse with red blood on it's back hoof and then red blood all over the chute gate. Surprisingly the bucking horse has disappeared and now it just shows red blood all over a chute gate - bright red blood. Blood is not bright red - at least not a Adobe-Photoshop bright red.
As far as the article is concerned, I believe that KTVU did a fair job letting both sides have their say. They remained nutural, which is a sign of true journalism. They interviewed representatives from both sides. Kudos to them. As far as the video - well I think I have addressed that in fine detail above. There was nothing done to either horse in the video. Horses that stall in a chute can be prodded to move them out safely without harm to them or the cowboy. What I would like to know is if the shock device was used or just the prodding portion. Again, these so-called "SHOCK" devices that the SHARKIES claim to make the horses go wild work as follows:
Cattle prods are similar to stun guns in design -- they apply an electrical current across two electrodes -- but they serve a completely different function. A stun gun uses an electrical charge to incapacitate someone, while a cattle prod applies a charge to get a person or animal moving. A cattle prod only causes discomfort, it does not significantly affect the muscles and nervous system of the body. These two devices differ mainly in voltage. The voltage in a stun gun is high enough to dump electricity into the entire body. The lower voltage in a cattle prod only shocks someone at the point of contact.
No one in the video was hurting any horse. This is all wishful thinking on the part of the SHARKIES. Again, must have been a slow week for eco-bombings - obviously none were scheduled.
One last point, however, that needs to be clarified. None of Harry, Bertha or Elizabeth Rowell's living-descendants have any involvment or contact with any part of the existing Rowell Ranch Rodeo. None of them have attended any of the Professional Rowell Ranch Rodeos in over nine years. Most of the the people involved in the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, with the exception of a maybe one or two, even knew Harry Rowell, much less Elizabeth and none of them knew Bertha Rowell. This rodeo is not representative of The Harry Rowell Family and the living, blood descendants of Harry, Bertha and Elizabeth Rowell whose hard work, dedication, and belief in the American Dream built the Rowell Ranch, Rowell's Saddlery, the Rodeo Stock and the legacy of this American Family. Contrary to what may be believed or told in newspapers, magazines, etc. the Rowell Ranch Legacy was due their hard work, no one else's hard work. Harry & Bertha Rowell helped many, many people in many different ways. This is their legacy not anyone else's legacy to claim.
So SHARKIES, unfortunately like most things you do, you are barking up the wrong tree. Since I have graciously responsed to your drive-by guestbook shooting, I would like to see your response to article below. I guess I can eagerly assume that SHARK is on their way to Florida (at about $5.00 per gallon and about 12 miles per gallon on the Toy Tiger Truck) to save all these unwanted, abused and neglected horses and donkeys to buy them hay (which is going about $18 per bale) with all the money they get donated online. I would like you to update me on your success in bringing these ABUSED animals to your home or a stable nearby your home and taking care of them. Please keep me updated - after all doesn't SHARK stand for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness - well here's your sign - get going to Florida and let us know how you take care of these ABUSED animals.
120 Horses, Donkeys Found Starving

MARION COUNTY, Fla. -- A Central Florida woman will likely be charged with animal cruelty and neglect after nearly 120 emaciated horses, donkeys and ponies were found on a ranch, officers said.
"It is horrid," neighbor Tina Rhodes said. "It breaks your heart to see (the animals). They are starving to death."
Tips from callers concerning the horses led animal service officers to a ranch in the 4000 block of Northeast Highway 316 in Fort McCoy Thursday. Officials said on Friday that more animals may be hidden in other locations. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the animals is urged to call Marion County Animal Services at 352-671-8727.
When animal services officers checked the animals, it was determined the they had suffered months of neglect, Local 6 reported.
"Preventing this from happening could have been very, very simple," Marion County animal services representative Dawn Stephen said.
Francine Derby is owner of the property and the animals, Local 6 reported.
"She is devastated," friend Dennis Johnson said. "She is going to try and do whatever she can to see if she can get her animals back.
Johnson said Derby is a loving animal owner, but allegedly confessed that she was overwhelmed, Local 6 reported.
"She realized that she has too many horses," Johnson said. "It is hard for one person to take care of them. She is doing the best she can and apparently that is not good enough."
Johnson said the woman cared for sick horses.
"She took a lot of rescue horses in," Johnson said. "And those are the horses they are depicting as abused. There are no horses here that have been abused."
Animal service representatives said the horses and other animals are suffering from a lack of food and care.
Animal workers brought feed for the animals Thursday night.
County spokesman Judge Cochran said the county had not yet removed the animals from the properties, but court documents filed earlier gave the county possession of the animals.
Cochran said emergency medical treatment was needed for some animals, while others were to be placed with volunteers temporarily.
The rest would be taken to land owned by the county where they would get food and additional medical care.
The animals will be placed in new homes.
