I understand that there is an over population of horses compared to the amount of people that want them, but in my opinion, there's more people on the Earth then there should be, but that doesn't mean we should go around killing everyone does it?
I hate it because it's not like they just kill the horses, which would be bad enough, they get tortured, and then killed. They are shot, zapped, whipped and so many more things I can't bring myself to type.
There are three big reasons why they are slaughtered.
1. Horse meat: A lot of people eat this. Which is really stupid because appparently, killing cows and sheep and various other animals aren't enough for some people.
2. A horse is "crazy": I'm so sick of hearing this! If someone doesn't have the brains to handle a horse, it's labeled as hopeless horse and shipped off to slaughter, when in truth, young kids say that want a pony so the parents get them whatever they want and when something bad happens due to their ignorance the horse is blamed.
3. A horse just isn't good enough: If a horse has "bad conformation" or isn't the right color, or even has a wrong facial marking, most of them get slaughtered because a lot of people want purebred TBs or some kind of fancy breed and so the others get tossed to the side. Now please don't get me wrong, I'm not saying TBs are bad or that people having preferences is bad, I'm just saying that some people can be nasty about it and so a lot of horses are killed.
Therefore I am completley against it.
