    If you are in the USA and have a pet, eat meat or dislike big brother government then you should educate yourself about the proposed National Animal Identification System that is being implemented by the government. I have written a summary of it with links to the full documentation at:

    Get educated while you still have a chance to have some influence on this issue.

    I dont think you have that right. "if you go on a trailride with your horse, you have to report it to the government".

    That is BS, this is not a big deal, and won't happen like you say it is going to. That would be an infringement on our rights.

    So explain to me how knowing the source of a livestock-based outbreak is a bad thing?

    The people who overanalyze this stuff have too much time on their hands.

    Yes, you will need to report trail rides according to the USDA's NAIS fact sheet at:

    http://animalid.aphis.usda.gov/nais/newsroom/factsheets/nais_qa_factsheet.shtml#21

    To quote:

    Q. If a Person Only Shows Animals or Only Takes Them to Trail Rides, Do They Need to be Identified?
    A. When people show or commingle their animals with animals from multiple premises, the possibility of spreading disease becomes a factor. Those animals will need to be identified.

    Just because you don't believe your government would infringe on your rights does not mean they will not do so. Speak up now while you still can. Write the USDA, your legislators, newspapers, etc. Act now.

    You don't think who has what right? :confused:

    Like many things in our gov't now, this takes a good concept (offering quick tracking of meat from large farms in case of bad batches) and goes way too far with it (telling the gov't you took your pet horse for a trail ride? that you took your dog to a show?).
