Just saw an ad about this on Craigslist and was looking for some additional info. I found it under Louisville>for sale>farm and garden and the add was for mule and draft sale but also had dates for regular horse sale. It had phone numbers on the ad.

No they still have the sales, it's the 2nd & 4th saturday night every month. They start selling horses about 7pm but if you want a good seat/good deals on tack/good parking spot, etc.... I say get there between 4 & 5.:)

From interstate: get off at the oakland exit, its the side road the coca cola factory is on, the sale is across the road from it.
From smiths grove, hit 68/80 & it'll be a side road on the left. You'll see a cattle farm & the coca cola factory behind it.
From bowling green: same as above but it'll be on your right.
Or you could just map quest Mammoth Cave Dairy Auction in Smiths Grove.

Horse with Transport Injury Smith Grove
Transport Injury
+ AA investigators identified a large 350 horse auction in Smith's Grove, KY, apparently managed by known kill buyer Tim Ryan. Ryan ordered employees around and was later observed drawing blood for Coggins' testing, a blatant violation of regulations. Several other kill buyers were present at the auction. Outside, it was 86 degrees with no breeze and almost 100% humidity. Inside was worse with no fans running, lots of dust and no food or water for any animal. Handling was rough as horses were forced through a chute 3 at a time. Kill horses were kept away from the public eye, in pens all the way in the back of the barn. Several of these horses were very thin, one had a gashed, bleeding forehead, an apparent transport injury. Kill horses sold very quickly around midnight after most of the public had left.
David Shaw Collecting Station+ At the David Shaw Slaughter Horse Collecting Station in Scottsville, KY, AA investigators found 35 to 40 horses. The pens were extremely run-down and contained lots of trash and debris, and a dilapidated building with its roof caved in. The horses stood on piles of manure with a large pile filling up one corner of the pen. Several of the horses were very thin and kept their heads low. Several were coughing. All had slaughter tags attached to them, ready to be shipped to Canada for slaughter.
R & R Livestock
Slaughter horses shortly before transport
+ The investigation continued at facilities with records of Transport to Slaughter Violations including R & R Livestock in Murray and Ryan's Horse Company in Rineyville. Documents show that many KY horse traders supply some of the biggest kill buyers in other states like Ohio, Minnesota and Louisiana. According to documents Animals' Angels obtained from the USDA, at least two facilities provide horses to large scale kill buyer Jeron Gold in Michigan.
In Kentucky, it seems those associated with horse slaughter can operate with little to worry about. Laws do nothing to protect animals but offer major protection to those guilty of animal cruelty. The animal cruelty statute in KY is waived if killing an animal by mutilating, beating, failing to provide water and food, etc., is "incident to processing for food or some other commercial purpose...[or] sporting activity."
Where to now
Larry Browning FeedlotDuring our investigation KY's "Unbridled Spirit" was definitely unchecked-an unhindered evil spirit of abuse & neglect. Investigators' experienced a KY that has done nothing to protect the very animals they so readily use to market their state.
AA's first KY investigation has revealed some of the main kill buyers and documented conditions of the horses and the sites. But this is just the start, more investigations will follow. Our goal is to collect and use evidence to create significant public awareness and to push hard for better laws and better enforcement, and to target offenders in the courts. When the time comes, AA's investigations and evidence will be ready for KY's next legislative session.
KY deserves a lot of our attention. It is truly needed here. To be in a real sense the "horse capitol of the world" requires genuine leadership and responsibility, not just a logo. KY should live up to the name they have given themselves.
