I place humans many many many steps above all animals.

I understand you place horses over other livestock you seem to not understand I don't.

Less then 1/2 of a % of our horse population goes to slaughter each year do you actually beleive we've bred way to many to supply that 1/2 %?

Attacks? If thats an attack its only because your going out of your way to make one up. But are you saying you don't want to control where people can sell their horses? Either you do or you don't and from your posts I see nothing that would indicate you don't.

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.

Shame on you for making something up that was never there.

If you want a persons right to sell their horse to slaughter how are you not trrying to control what they do with it?

Where did I get the 1/2%? theres 9,250,000 horses in the country. We sell 150,000 to 160,000 to slaughter a year. I'm no math expert but that works out to about 1/2 % if I figure right.

Big pink shot in pastures? If you mean people that choose to put a horse down and the ones that die of natural causes etc. thats about 10% a year.

OK guys, this has now become personal. There does not seem to be any new information that the rest of the forum community needs to follow so I think we need to wrap this up.

If you need to continue this then the chat room or pm should be the place.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
