Well that's just it. Whenever someone mentions PETA the response is a lot of eye rolling because they have developed a reputation of being ridiculous and over the top rather then helping. Its just like the humane society of the united states, their reputation is more known as a scam then giving donations to shelters.

PETA have shot themselves in the foot by being such a sensationalist group. They started out with good intentions, then took it way too far. So when they try to take action on something that is actually relatively logical, everyone brushes it off entirely because it's PETA. If it were a different, more structured and well reputed organisation, then I'd put money on it, that more people would sit up and take notice.

Can't agree with you more Kayty. They give people who really care about animals' welfare a bad name by being crazy, illogical and sometimes even causing harm to animals. There are environmental activism groups that do this kind of thing too, very frustrating for those of us actually trying to initiate change in the real world... *sigh*

Further food for thought - this is an older article, but *shock horror* look, Uta's horses are kept outside, in herds, often with no rugs/blankets, and drink out of a river. She says the worst injury they have had on the property, was in a stable.

Really the only time that an horse will get hurt is if the horse is shut in all the time.

Say what?
They can get hurt where ever they are. I had a mare break her leg paddocked 24/7, and a gelding rupture his suspensory paddocked 24/7.
