Ok now that I'm over that...are you serious? Who in the world would raise "slaughter specific horses" which they are going to get a much lesser "meat" price for, rather than a horse they think some person is willing to buy? For example, the people down the road from me still breeding "sport horse" crosses.... (and other more reputable breedings).
Also: Prove it. Did you come upon "their" secret evil plan stashed away somewhere?

Have you never eaten fast food or at a restaurant?
You only eat at home with the meat you get?
I find that really really hard to believe.
Hell, I live in a city and I used to raise coturnix quail for meat and eggs! They're small, don't take up a lot of space and lay daily. And the roos don't "crow" like roosters.............

All I can say is a head shot kills the animal is brain dead the rest of the body takes time to die but the brain is dead that is why they are still moving I have see this even when a vet puts a horse down-do I like the idea of slaughter no but it is one of these thing if you are going to eat meat- I take the indians way I thank the animal for what they are doing for me respected the animal before and after

*Note: Did Not Reading Previous Posts*

I would like to recommend that all videos come with a summery before hand. If a monitor would some how make that a rule please.

I don't mind graphic but I think our younger viewers would and when someone puts a video like this on here, without a COMPLETE warning, it could end up bad.

I guess there aren't many people who are aware of the horse feedlots all over the country . You know, those places where horses (and other animals) are taken by kill buyers after auction to fatten them up and give them time to metabolize any and all drugs out of their system before they are slaughtered....

Of course there are horse feedlots. I know one "rescue" that works with a feedlot- they try out horses that are there and advertise or buy the ones that are in decent health, good temperament, and have training for a set amount over what the owner will make on their meat price. Works out quite well in some ways, though it's not a job I'd be able to handle on a regular basis.

^^^ Sharpie and smrobs are right.
Also they don't reject horses at the plant just like they don't with cattle, however it is required
That they are able to walk off of the truck. No down cattle/horses.

The hay shortage is due to drought like Bubba said, not because we ship it all overseas. We do ship hay over there but not all. I believe most of it is Dairy test hay that you can't feed to horses anyhow.

I would love to know where Shutupjoe gets his info....

As far as I'm concerned, there will always be slaughter. It's what happens, people need to eat and there are processes in place to ensure that the meat we buy is safe for consumption. That is why animals are slaughtered the way they are, and hung to bleed out. As much as I love horses, it is hard to differentiate that meat from deer, moose or cow. It is a source of food and although it's a little strange to us as equestrians... it's not a new practice. Just take a look at other countries and cultures - some cultures would much rather eat dog than cow, while others consider horse a delicacy. I know a few people who LOVE to eat kangaroo and snake, while others gag at the thought of eating chicken.

As for death not being gentle (I'm going a few pages back), maybe I've been lucky, but the animals I've had to euthanize have gone peacefully. Whenever I have to make the choice to euthanize one of my ailing pets, I ask that the animal is anesthetized first so they are sleeping peacefully. If they are very ill, the anesthesia will typically stop their heart before the vet even has the final needle ready. For all intents and purposes, they die in their sleep. I've only had three of my animals die without my help and I can assure you... I'm still trying to rid my memory of that image. When Hemi (my hedgehog died), the last thing I remember is her going into convulsions, biting her tongue and squealing because she was in such an extreme amount of pain. When she died, her quills were standing straight up and she looked as if she was steadying herself for a fight. Her mouth was wide open and during one convulsion, she had managed to bite down on something hard and break every single one of her teeth. Her legs were splayed and every single toe spread wide apart... Five years later, I still cringe when I think of the fear and pain that enveloped her final moments. When Cuda and Kismet, two more of my hedgehogs, died, they died in their sleep and were completely relaxed. Cuda had his head rested on the stand of his wheel and Kismet was stretched out in her sleeping bag. They were the lucky ones... they passed naturally, instantly, in their sleep.

May I ask why on earth you would watch it if you knew it would offend you? And why on earth should anyone care about offending you?
