Also AAWHA member Ms. Gena Booher, a constituent of Representative Yoho was steadfast in appealing to him to lead the way.  As a large animal veterinarian, Representative Yoho brings unusual perspective and gravitas to the issue.

Nephew Eugene says there’s a lot more that could be told about how Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL) came to agree to sponsor the PAST ACT,  but suffice it to say,  that  it would have never happened without the determination and persistence of The American Horse Council and the All American Walking Horse Alliance.
