Actually Equiniphile, the "Horse Lover" thread is not about the ban. The person who posted that was looking for donations to help horses out in Egypt.

Even more so now that a lot of Canadian companies have open shop or taken over existing companies in the US.

I don't post on here a whole lot, but I do agree with the OP (trinasugar) about the ban on horse slaughter. I do realize that not everyone agrees tho, and that's OK, we don't all have to agree on everything...

You think they should starve to death instead....that's way more humane!

Since this is a horse forum, and not one on religion or international relations, I have removed 60 off-topic posts, including a number that featured my scintillating wit. The other moderators have been notified, and they can move any or all of those posts back if they think appropriate.

A love of horses unites us. Almost anything else divides us. Please - lets focus on horses.

It's a real shame these threads are never ending... perhaps a pinned topic to Horse Protection's board page regarding that this topic is overdone would slow so many of these down?

I'm personally pro slaughter... I've actually been to the slaughter house here and was definitely changed after the visit... but its a necessary evil to overpopulation, abused animals, and older horses too.

It's a fantasy to believe that everything in life can end so happily... and slaughter is a reality that many horse lovers around the world have accepted.

Starve to death? What's wrong with euthanasia?

Many people who can't afford to or don't care to feed their horses also can't afford to or don't care to euth them either. Euthing costs money.

I would love to see a restriction on breeding of horses and harsh penalties for those "breeding without a license"...

They say money doesn't buy happiness -- well happiness doesn't buy horses!
