  2. Are these gruesome and completely unnecessary “experiments” still going on? Who can we contact to express our intent that this STOP. I’ve only just today become aware of your page through someone else putting up a link. I wish I had heard of you sooner. I posted on FB and immediately got questioned about contacts info.

  3. Here in the UK we have published foals being released from Manchester laboratories, aged 6 – 8 months of age.
    They are bred in Wales, and sent to the lab to be tested on aged 3 months, thats 3 months too young to be weaned from the dams.
    They are tested for all types of unnecessary chemicals, such as BOTOX.
    They are very shell shocked when released to the safety of a rescue, they have not seen the outdoor life or felt grass, they are prisoners and abused for no genuine welfare purpose.
    This must be stopped.
    We have shared this on our facebook group: Voices Against Neglect & Abuse of all Horses (VANAH)

    Please keep us posted with any developments

    • i haven’t published the specifics of the horse experiments yet, but i can tell you that it is funded 100% by unwitting taxpayers who would likely be outraged if they knew. at least that’s what i’m counting on

      • I posted this on wpbf’s newstation channel urging them to do a report on this so tax payers know what is going on. It’s cruel and inhumane

  4. I have shared this my friends, can you let me know where the petition is, if there is one of course. Some people believe these pics are just of a horse coming out of surgery, Can you give me more info to share and raise awareness. Thank you Susan.

    • hi susan – your friends are correct. these are pics of horses coming out of surgery

      however, they were healthy horses before they were gratuitously mutilated inside the university of florida. the surgery is to chip the bones in these horses’ legs, the shards and fragments are left floating around inside the wounded leg and they are stitched up. this is to induce osteoarthritis. then the horses are forced to run on treadmills to exacerbate the injuries

      the horses are given no pain relief whatsoever. and the protocol governing these experiments — wholly funded by unwitting taxpayers — explicitly states that they are victimizing horses because these experiments have proved useless in rodents and would be too “expensive” to conduct in humans where they would have some value

      this is purely about profits

      most of these tortured will then be murdered and incinerated inside uf. eleventh hour will be releasing more info about the horses shortly

      the only petition we have circulating at the moment was published about 6 months ago. as far as i’m concerned, it is merely and instrument to advertise and reach a larger audience: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/235/586/135/senator-bill-nelson-end-federal-grants-used-for-primate-torture-at-the-university-of-florida/

      the person who handled petitions is no longer associated with this campaign

  5. How do we get more information about this horrific torturous act. Is there a petition to sign to expose these bastards.

  6. I will certainly share this, as I have a lot of FB horse rescue friends in Florida. Is there no legal way to get this stopped?

    • Thank you so much, Laura. I encourage you to give my contact information to any of your colleagues in Florida who are interested in getting behind our efforts to expose and end these atrocities. The most potent weapons we have are exposure and unity. We must organize ourselves to fight for them.

  7. Simple; Get the phone numbers of all the faculty involved at this institution and POST THEM so we can call them and bombard the fucktards with calls to stop this nonsense. They all look like a bunch of Nazis executing the jews in those pics…..disgusting, and they call this research?

    • i like the way you think, mark

      i posted a link to the protocol (ie, the business plan) governing these experiments above. student names and contact info has been redacted. but you will find all the info there about exactly whom is responsible and profiting from horse torture

    • thank you, don –

      uf basically controls the media which functions as a propaganda network to frame this animal torture industry in a way that promotes their interests. and i am currently experiencing a wholesale media blackout. they absolutely want to keep the details of their unconscionable horse and dog experiments away from the public.

      that is even more of a reason why we all need to be vocal and repost this info all over the net.

      and i am counting on establishing a base of community support that will stand with eleventh hour and protest aggressively in gainesville

  8. I’m in Florida, and with a rescue. This was posted to my wall by a friend & I am not only beyond words, I am angered!!! We been trying to get more inside information on these testing & the massive amounts of horses needed to do so. We have stumbled into some things & collectively need to talk. We have had our own nightmares with UF , the vets & law enforcement who support them recently & this just connects on so many different levels. For this reason, I don’t want to post the name of our rescue. We’re the hell do we sign up to fight? !!!!!!

    • well, debbie, you sound like a person who completely understands the system that we are up against and i suspect you’ve had some first-hand experience inside the repression apparatus. i just wrote my first book about the depths to which uf has gone to silence me and shut down this campaign

      i would love for us to be able to talk and maybe get together so we may compare notes.

      please write me at eleventhhour@riseup.net

      • Camille, I will write to you. I have reached out to those within our organization who’ve been keeping timelines, journals, photos, names, etc. We have been absolutely crucified for reasons we do not know. We believe it’s because we stumbled into some things we weren’t supposed to know….. So we started poking around, asking questions & making a few contacts. We believe we may have uncovered some information, but just couldn’t make a connection, until I saw this. Now we need hard evidence to support it all. This is not about just testing to find treatments, this is about absolute domination, control & monopolization of a bursting industry & pipeline. UF has unlimited resources & support. A multitude of staff, students, medical equipment & facilities. This is what I know. What I don’t know is what’s bothering me.

        • debbie, all i can say is that i find it very reassuring that you are as sophisticated and experienced as you are. after i won my first lawsuit against them, uf had me arrested for the first time in my life and extradited out of the state. after i won my second lawsuit in march of 2013, they did the same thing.

          although my entire life of crime amounts to one act of nonviolent civil disobedience and violating a couple of unconsitutional court orders, uf has gone to extraordinary lengths to silence me, frame me as a terrorist, imprison me, and scare others away.

          and so i totally understand why your anonymity is paramount. and i will never again underestimate the depths to which this federally-funded institutional abuser will sink to crush dissent.

          i look forward to speaking further privately

  9. Any sources to back up your claims?

    These pictures just look like some horses in surgery for colic or OCD (the joint disease not the behavioral OCD). Any university that has a vet school will have these facilities, and just about anyone can take the exact same pictures. And while universities do get money from tax payers, if you use their veterinary services, you still have to pay money out of pocket.

    Why would a university inflict this on horses? It seems rather expensive since there’s a plethora of horses left untouched that develop arthritis by age three. My two year old filly developed arthritis out of nowhwere–from just being in the pasture. So why spend the money and the resources to inflict arthritis when any veterinarian or lab researcher would know that there are plenty of lame horses already out there–bone chips and all?

    The amount of drugs required to put a horse under is waaaaayyyy more than any other animal. My horse is insured under a $10,000 major medical policy, and that won’t even cover everything if he ever needed surgery. So why choose a horse? It’s not the cheaper option. On top of that, putting a horse under anesthesia is risky. Most die. If you want to study the effects of drugs on lame horses, then why not go for an already lame horse?

    Using horses to experiment on for human medicine? I don’t think so. Horses are just too different anatomically speaking. Any researcher would know that’s a bad idea. If we take ethics and animal rights out of the picture for just a moment, a horse is just too costly to experiment on. So are they using them for equine medicine? Maybe. But then again, we can reverse arthritis in horses with stem cell therapy. We can get rid of OCD’s. Adequan replaces synovial fluid in their joints. We already have a ton of research on equine arthritis, so again, inflicting injury and then running tests only to euthanize the horse 10 days later makes no sense at all.

    The last part that makes no sense is that this university is probably the only major equine surgery center for the state. I have to travel to OSU if my horse has surgery. There’s not one in my home state. Now, can you imagine all of the horses around the state of Florida who may need emergency surgery at any given time? There’s probably quite a few. So why tie up students/veterinarians/researchers with all of this equipment just to run some experiments or torture some horses for no reason at all? It’s not very likely.

    These pictures just make my skeptical mind question. It’s as though someone who doesn’t know medicine or equines at all went in and started snapping shots. None of it makes any sense.

    • thank you for your comments and questions, horse person.

      i appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns. while i am unprepared to discuss any horses specifically at the moment, these images were secured through an open records request for a number of horses that are being gratuitously experimented on at taxpayer expense under a usda classification called “column e” — this means that pain relief is intentionally being withheld.

      this is the protocol that governs these experiments: http://www.negotiationisover.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/protocol-5512-horse-torture-ghivizzani.pdf

      this is about nothing but money. animal experimentation is an industry that earns uf approximately $400 million annually in taxpayer-funded grants.

      these horses are having their bones chipped away, the fragments and shards are left inside the leg, they are forced to run on a treadmill, and most of them will then be exterminated. if they had any concern a about horses, they would treat horses that already suffered from osteo arthritis.

  10. Over the time that I have used a PC, I have read aswell as viewed some horrific topics on animal cruelty and the more I see the more shocked I become. The procedures that go on in some universities , on farms and abroad are absolutely dreadful. We are supposed to love our animals and yet we abuse them, torturing them by experimentation and in the end killing them. We are not worthy to live on this wonderful planet and the people that do these things to animals should have a punishment suitable to the crime. These sadistic human beings should be executed.

  11. this gruesome unneccsary experiments torture must end! does any one have a heart concience there!!!!!!!!!!!!!??

  12. nous en sommes encore a cette époque barbare aux etats unis qui se dit l une des grande nation du monde respectez le monde animal ils ont des droits…..
