I've seen some awfully nice horses come out of some pretty nasty situations on those shows.
Makes me feel like giving those people the exact same treatment for punishment. Screw the fine, then THEM wear a halter embedded into their head and starved for a month.
I know they should pay and go to hell the animal abusers and there is another1 where they found a like 5 year old gelding and he had a holl in his neck as big as a dinner plate yet it was sutch an old wound that it had hair on it and didnt seem to bother him at all! And that was in houston 2
And another time a horse who had been abused and the Houston ASPCA rescued that 1 2 and when he got adopted the owners researched way back and found out that the thoughbred was aculy was related to Man O War. Isn't amazing how cruel people treat there animals especily horses because there sutch big babies and soooo sweet like my horse Braidee
