Show me where I have made up anything to you. YOu are making this personal, it doesn't need to be. I am pretty sure if I had said the same thing about you (which I wuddn't, I don't make these kind of discussions personal) you wudda taken offense as well.
But accountablity must not be important. SHame.
I DO understand that all livestock is the same to you. To me, horses are pets. Not livestock, but I am not the one that classifies such things. Horses DID help our culture to advance, the other animals (livestock animals) not so much. THESE are the reason I place them higher than other livestock.
I want SLAUGHTER outlawed. If slaughter is outlawed, then it wuddn't matter. Banning slaaughter doesn't mean I am trying to dictate what other horse owners do with thier horses, I couldn't do that even IF I wanted to, and I DON"T. I want slaughtering horses for human consumption to stop. Where has that got anything to do with me trying to control other horse owners? I ain't making accusations and judgements about YOU, I ain't saying people can't take their horses and do what they want, I WANT SLAUGHTER OUTLAWED. PERIOD. I never said I wanted to control what people did with thier horses, I just want overbreeding to stop, and therefor the finacial incentive they HAVE to overbreed must stop, which would be slaughter. But you show me where I said I wanted to control what other horse people did with their horses.
By the way, where did you get the 1/2 % stats? If we are overpopulated with horses, I find it very hard to beleive that the other half are dying peacefully with the big pink shot out in the pastures...
Know thyself, know thy horse.
