Dennis Chavez

is New Mexico’s largest kill buyer. According to USDA records, he uses the export pens at Santa Teresa directly across the border from Ciudad Juarez to transship close to 10,000 horses each year to Mexican slaughter plants. Some of the plants still slaughter horses with the inhumane Puntilla knife method, a barbaric practice that leaves the horse fully conscious during the slaughter process.

The investigation was triggered by numerous complaints Animals’ Angels received about the treatment of the animals at the feedlot. Photographs & reports received from an anonymous source showed multiple incidents of inadequate care & extremely emaciated horses.

Off~Topic: My Latest Vintage Purchase

Howdy GE  followers!

As I’ve mentioned before, every once in a while I like to stray from topic and show off my recent vintage purchases. Oh and let me just state for the record that it has been a while since I have made any so suffice it to say, I was long overdue, mkay?

Feast your eyes on this 1950s Shirtwaist Dress.  To say I am longing for the quick arrival of spring/summer just so I can wear this, would be a major effing understatement.

So what do you think?  Adorable right?  I purchased said adorable dress from the following Vintage Seller on Etsy:  Gretels Boutique

Lovely FLORAL 1950's Full Skirted GARDEN Dress

Also, I have let my pixie haircut grow longer…because…well, it’s winter,  dammit and sometimes a girl needs a bit more hair for warmth!  So in addition to waiting with anticipation to wear the above dress, I am also eager to chop off my hair  Jane Seberg Style.
