    "How many of you freaking out over equine slaughter use leather tack or wear leather shoes/boots/clothing? A majority, I'd say. If you want me to take you seriously, you should be completely vegan (eat ONLY plant matter), wear nothing but cotton, and have synthetic tack. Otherwise, you're nothing but a hypocrite."

    Ahem. I haven't eaten meat since 1987 and the majority of my life is animal-product free, including my clothing and tack. Veganism gets easier all the time as more people become vegetarian and new products are developed. I'm on the heavy side (vegan doesn't necessarily mean skinny!), and Fuller Fillies just came out with half-chaps and boots that fit me -- and they are synthetic!

    I am not claiming to be perfect. Cheese and eggs do sometimes pass my lips (although there is a new vegan "cheese" coming on the market soon that is supposed to actually melt and taste good. I have my fingers crossed). I feed my cats standard cat food (those by-products) and they do go outside and do hunt rodents. Some of my tack is leather (although I just found a synthetic bridle I want to try. The search is half the fun).

    I am far from stupid, nor am I uneducated, nor am I completely unmoved by the pro-arguments, nor do I think the "pro" people are evil. But . . . Nothing changes if nobody wants things to change. I prefer to try to change things rather than just accept the status quo I was born into. (Drives my family crazy, btw!)

    I am going to bow out of this discussion, but will contemplate the ideas to help me figure out what I can do to improve the situation. That might not be much, but I will try, which is all that can be asked of anyone.

    We have shot 2 animals and chemically euthanized 3 including 1 horse. I'll take the chemicals any day. All 3 times the animal went quietly and as far as we could tell, without pain. Any time you need to have an animal put down do it a favor and give it a sedative before you do what ever method you chose.

    To Chrispy- Take a look at Zilco tack, I have a few pieces and have been very happy with them. Also National Bridle carries some plus size clothing but it may be mostly show type outfits.

    Alright! (oh what fun) Now since we humans are predators and horses are prey animals. (get it prey) The the only natural thing is for us to hunt and eat horses like they are supposed to be!

    Sure so they can starve b/c their is not enough for them to eat. Along with all the other animals that share that grazing land b/c all those horses have eaten it and trampled it.

    Yeah, like NRHAReiner said, they'd either starved or be shot by hunters or farmers who are fed up with their hay product being eaten.
    THAT'S not slaughter...
