Of course it is, that's why they keep breeding crappy horses. ;) If it was a battle we could win, so many sound healthy horses wouldn't be on their way to Mexico right now.
(Also, LOL. Slaughter is about money. They're going to slaughter the horse the cheapest way possible. And let me tell you, the cheapest way possible is ALWAYS the worst way for the horse. They just have one or two 'nice' facilities set up so they can tell naive people 'this is where the nice horseys go!')
OK, this thread has degraded to name calling, innuendo, and another sermon on overbreeding. The OP wanted a question answered that has nothing to do with the answers she has been getting so the thread is now closed.
