I seriously dont remember ever offering MY opinion either way.....
The "American People" have never been asked about this subject. It has always been only special interest groups dictating their will.

Przewalski's horse (Equus ferus przewalskii) according to the Smithsonian National Zoo is the last of the world's truly wild horses, a designation it earned by always resisting any attempt at training. As a matter of note, the famous mustang that ranged in great free-running herds across the plains and deserts was not a truly wild horse. It descended from domesticated Andalusian horses imported by the Spanish, and it would submit to training. End of discussion!

Am I the on;y one who is tired of being preached to by celebrities?
According to her Musicianguide.com bio, "Her father, who played the guitar, mandolin, and banjo, worked as a hunting guide on a nature preserve."
I think Ms. Dalton has, as they say in Hollywood-speak, "issues" over her daddy helping to kill animals.
