Hey I never said I wuldnt put one down, I have had to put down a couple of my horses :( becasue they were suffureing. Im talking about just killing for meat! And people selling there horses to murderers!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I believe that if any horse is hurting or suffering, they should be put out of there misery!!! But I don't believe in killing horses just for meat!!!! And other animals are NOT the same as a Horses! Call me a hypocrite, but I could care less about eating a nother animal, just so it isnt a horse!

Just because you wouldnt eat a horse doesnt mean others are wrong by doing so.

So very true....but you don't see as many people ranting and raving about saving them.

So what about the kids who raise up beef or pigs as a 4H project? Don't you think that they would be just as attached to them as we can get to our horses?

It takes care of two majorly depressing issues: Animal cruelty and human starvation.
This is a great idea.


Allison....you crack me up.


Just for a few *ahem* certain debaters on the anti-slaughter side....this thread was started because someone was wanting to know if it was or was not illegal in Britian (so not even in the United States) and if it was illegal, how did it come about. The only two posters from that way have been the OP, Barry and Faye....I doubt the rest of us can answer that question. So can we please go back to the OP?

Faye and Barry--I find it quite interesting how your passport system works. Here, to the best of my knowledge, a passport is used as a piece of ID for showing. It has more of a list of what classes have been competed in, and where....rather then what drugs have been administered.

It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. --Epictetus

Passport is an ID system, it has a description and diagram of the horse, as of 2009, all horses wanting a new passport must be microchip, it contains the horses vaccine record, a record of other drugs administered (must be filled in by the vet who administers the vaccine), a section for you to sign if the horse has been administered any drugs that will make it unfit for human consumption. If it is a breed society passport then it will also contain full breeding and a history of ownership.

These details are collected by the passport issueing authorities (Normaly breed societies and a few others) and all information is put onto the national equine database.
It is illegal too sell a horse without a passport (but not illegal to buy it)

I personaly think passports are brilliant. It has virtualy stopped the indescriminate breeding of scrub ponies as now it costs more to passport them then they sell for in the auction ring.
I went to Beeston horse market several times over the winter and the number of them has dropped by 90%. Last time I went there was 2 maybe 3 scrub ponies (destined for the meatman from birth), when I went in 2007 you would get 40+ scrub ponies per sale!

Personaly I'm not sure I like being called a horse murderer by hysterical child.
I'll call her a cow murderer because to some religions cows are sacred and held in higher regard then horses have ever been.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

You can't murder an animal. Stop being such a drama llama. :roll:

So horses are 'more special' than anything else, and all the rest are just yucky, ugly, stupid meat? You're the type of person I wouldn't let near my animals, especially my horses. You have no empathy for anything unless you personally like it, and that's the wrong attitude to have if you're going to consider yourself an animal advocate.

I believe in the kind and humane treatment of all animals, regardless of whether they're going to wind up as food or pets. If you truly care about the welfare of animals, it shouldn't matter WHAT the species is. You missy, are no animal lover. You're narrow minded and hateful if it doesn't involve horses, and that's a very nasty attitude to have.

I believe that animals raised for meat are sometimes better cared for than our pets :P Lives are shorter yes, but they are well cared for. Cause happy animals make better meat. Or like that cheese commercial. Happy cows make better cheese. But in the case of horses its usually the unwanted that go to slaughter. Well in the US anyway. Just think of what hands a cheap rank horse in the kill pen could go to. Yes there are people out there who target cheap animals to abuse them. An animal abuser could easily buy that cheap horse and abuse it. Id rather see that horse get slaughtered than abused.

Oh and Lol Allison, thanks for making me laugh!

I am a HORSE lover!! I love My HORSES & Every other HORSE in this WORLD! And I take very good care of my horses! Just casue I don't care bout other kinds of animals don't mean I wouldnt take care of them, im just sayin it don't bother me if people eat beef,pork etc. it very much bothers me if people eat horses! Its wrong and it is murder. Lets just say ill eat it if it has a split hoof (horses don't have split hoofs) its just the way I believe & how I feel yes its from my heart I listen to my heart & my Brain!! But I feel no one should eat horses!! And like I said before I will strave before I eat a horse.
No hard feelings to anyone who thinks its alright to eat horses, I just think its super wrong that's all! Thank little of me all you want to! And try & tell me diffrent but its not going to change my mind. So with this I have said my peace and will say no more on the matter!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!
