No doubt you have seen the news over the past few days regarding my father’s arrest during a horse rescue operation in Kentucky. I’ve been totally overwhelmed by the support we have received. I won’t dive too much into the details here but I want you all to take a look at this video. I think it will clear up any questions you may have.
For those of you that have asked (or just wondered) about my recent arrest, I wanted to share this video. As you may know, the story of my arrest was carried by Fox, AP, CBS, and numerous local media outlets. If you are willing to share the rest of the story with others, I would appreciate your help. Thanks to the many who have expressed their support, prayers, and trust.

Well there you have it. Hopefully my marginal recording abilities don’t detract too much from the actual situation you can see in this video. The scenario is really quite heartbreaking. Regardless of if you’re an “animal person” or not, there is something tragic about seeing such majestic animals being turned loose to fend for themselves in the winter. It was really surprising to me just how friendly these creatures were. One horse in particular followed me around while I was filming, wanting nothing more than some affection. We’ve decided we may have to bring her home.
Sadly, the national media has largely ignored the ending of this story. While the Associated Press deemed it worthy to speak of the arrest, they have ignored the fact that this entire situation has been worked together for good. Myself and many others are now aware of the plight of these animals and we are working to do something about it. The power of social media continues to blow my mind. In such a short period of time, the video has accumulated 250,000 views from all over the world and over 5,000 shares. This is a good reminder that the media does not control us, and it is up to each one of us to spread the truth using every tool available to us.
While (like any father and son) dad and I do not agree on everything, I continue to be immensely proud of him and amazed at his sacrificial spirit. The media has no doubt damaged his reputation, but we know the truth and are thankful he is a man of character.
Keep fighting for what is right,
