ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - After months of legal wrangling and false starts in a battle to resume domestic horse slaughter, plants in New Mexico and Missouri are working to begin processing equine for human consumption.
 
   The efforts come on the heels of an order late Friday by a federal appeals court that lifted an emergency stay on the companies' plans.
 
   Blair Dunn, an Albuquerque who represents Valley Meat Co. of Roswell and Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Mo., says the plants Monday "are pushing full steam ahead to be ready to go as soon as possible."
 
   Rains Natural Meats, he says, even has horses on site. But it's unclear if the plants will open before Christmas or wait until after the holidays.
 
   The Humane Society vows "the fight for America's horses is not over."

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A temporary order barring a return to domestic horse slaughtering has expired. And an attorney for plants in New Mexico and Missouri says they are preparing to open.

Blair Dunn, who represents Valley Meat Co. in Roswell, N.M., and Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Mo., says a temporary restraining order in a lawsuit from animal protection groups trying to block the plants from opening expired Thursday night without a ruling from a federal judge in Albuquerque.

Dunn says the groups suing the Department of Agriculture over its permitting procedures are expected to seek an extension of the restraining order, but that he will fight it.

Dunn says the Missouri plant could be up and running on Monday. The Roswell plant is also preparing to open. An Iowa plant that had also planned to slaughter horses has converted to beef because of the litigation.

   SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A judge has ordered the state Department of Natural Resources to hold off on issuing a wastewater permit for a horse slaughter facility planned for northwest Missouri.

   The Springfield News-Leader reports Rains Natural Meats wants to operate the facility near Gallatin, but Cole County Judge Daniel Green wants to hear a lawsuit filed against DNR before allowing the critical permit.

   Three horse slaughter opponents have sued the DNR to block the permit, which would let the facility land-apply the wastewater from the proposed plant.

   Their lawsuit argues that horses treated with a gamut of drugs that could be dangerous to human health would be slaughtered at the facility.

   Rains Natural Meats vice president David Rains called the judge's order illegal and said he was fighting to have it overturned.
