Over breeding sends horses to slaughter? I've seen no evidence of that at all. The demand for meat dertimes whats slaughtered if no one wants to eat it doesn't matter how many there are none get slaughtered. We don't slaughter cattle because theres to many we do it because theres a demand for beef.
I agree with the first part of the statement. If you take away the right to breed freely, everyone will be affected, not just the BYBs, but the responsible breeders and barns too.
I don't know whether overbreeding sends
horses to slaughter, but it tends to be the mediocre ones who go first, not the good sound flashy ones. So, by breeding a mediocre horse, and probably getting a mediocre foal, could be potentially dangerous for the foal.
