Actually, it might help to research your facts before making bold claims like, "But not as many horses are being slaughtered now.The number of horses that are sent to slaughter have dropped a crazy percentage since the ones in the US have been closed.Horses have always been sent to canada and mexico.Now it's just less. "
Um, excuse me?
In reality, the number of horses transported to Mexico to be slaughtered has increased by 300-500% and the number going to Canada has increased by 50%. These numbers don't include the horses that were shipped across the border "for recreation" or "for breeding"--but were still slaughtered, and the shippers just lied to avoid cruelty laws. And that's only for 2007, when the slaughterhouses in the US were still operating for part of the year. The number of horses being killed outside the country has increased drastically.
And, if you're going to use California as an example, horses were just hauled outside the state, then sold for slaughter. There are ways to get around every law.
And, by the way, I got these statistics from the AVMA website.
