Filmed in 2003 by Tiff Bartlett, former documentary film photographer for Kevin Costner, and assistant to Eric Roth (Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Forest Gump").

This is an 8 minute film about the love Texans and all Americans share for their horses, and about putting an end to the greedy human consumption of horses abroad.

Meet Tarrant Co Asst DA Ann Diamond, Dallas lawyer Skip Trimble, Kaufman mayor Paula Bacon, and see undercover scenes from inside a slaughter house.

According to statistics from the California Bureau of Livestock Identification, after voters outlawed horse slaughter for human consumption in 1998, horse theft dropped in California by 34%.

On February 13, 2003 U.S. Congressman John Sweeney (R-NY) introduced the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act, HR 857.

Only two live horse slaughter plants remain in the United States today. Both are in Texas . Both operate in defiance of Texas state law.
