THESE LITTLE PONIES WENT TO MARKET
LIVE TWEETING feels like a cross between fast-breaking journalism and haiku poetry.
It allows me to cover the most disturbing stories with controlled emotions.
Many of YOU were disturbed because you don't know how to Tweet and weren't following the slaughter sale of wild horses on Saturday August 17.
Below you can read my liveTweet coverage from Nevada's Fallon Livestock Exchange.
If you need clarification of some of my funky abbreviations, just ask. Please forgive me misspellings and non-nimble fingers. I was trying to get the info out as soon as possible.
As you may know, Twitter only allows 140 characters (letters, numbers and spaces) in each entry.
This is what came before and during the auction. After the auction, hundreds of horses were saved. Hundreds went to slaughter. Tomorrow, we learn the future of the unbranded horses, as decided by a Federal judge.
Have been ordered to leave auction property
Lots of neighing Still on property
Kill buyers: rallying of the clans 2 combat diminished income. Every buyer I have ever heard about
Kill buyers claim horses look better than they would've thought. Jok ing that tribes went to pal valley and took their pick

Without your commentary I never would have known. Thank you. I am angry with a purpose to help instead of watch.
