Informal efforts to work together between members of the various registries are better than informal efforts to oppose each other, but they are no substitute for formal efforts taken by the elected leaders of the various registries. Such a step does not require any of the registries to make any change in their form of organization and certainly does not require any of the registries to dissolve.
Instead, the leaders of these registries could agree to form a confederation of registries that are coming together for the purpose of advancing some of the proposals set forth in the previous post entitled "Baby Steps."
It is time to start talking. It is time for leaders to lead. I am not Ghandi. I am not even Rodney King. I do not care whether or not we "can all get along." I just want us to work together. We do not have to love each other. We do not even have to like each other. We simply need to recognize that cooperation is in the interest of each registry and every horse.
The young Corollas in the picture above could face each other and start fighting. Instead they choose to eat. All of us need to follow their lead. It is supper time.
