Either the slaughter houses need top open back up.
Or people need to stop breeding crap.
I think, that is the one thing I'd absolutely love to do is get a few horses from the feed lots and train them.
It's like, I'd trade a Vanner for a QH anyday.
But in the US someone would give me 10 QH's for a Vanner.
There's an immense amount of horses that go to slaughter, but because people love the ickle ponies they think closing down closer slaughterhouses is the right way to go?
We wouldn't dare close any of our slaughterhouses.
We'd be over run with TB's and Natives. Not too mention to ridiculous trip across the channel, to France then to Italy.
That's like, 4 to 5 days in them crappy lorries cramed full off hoses.
That's the way to go.
So long as people keep breeding things that have no market, slaughter will keep happening.
The only thing we can do is make it just that little bit better for the horses, aka not closing nearby houses so the horses don't endure the unnecessary trip across the boarder.
