No you don't.

This happens to be a HORSE forum and the original post is in the HORSE Articles section...not in a HUMAN world problem section.

Certainly there is hunger everywhere and that involves ALL species of the Equine, Canine, Feline and Human kind. I heard the Canine species are as bad off as the horses...so where is your pity for them MM?

The topic is horses MM so lets not nash teeth at someone who feels for their welfare.

While I understand this is a horse section, the people, their society, their economy, etc all influences those horses and are very valid topics to discuss in relation to the horses.

Everything that is happening in Egypt right now to the people and the animals is very horrible. I expect its not just equines and canines effected over there - but every living creature. I'm glad to hear there is an organization set up to help some, but I worry it may end up being too little because this is not something they are going to recover from quickly.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I pity all who are starving, I don't pick and choose based on blind assumptions.

I think there is a reading comprehension problem going on.
I never read where MM doesn't think that it's horrific that the horses are in that condition. She is simply saying that people need to quit blaming the owners.
They would feed the horses if they could. It's not like they said "I want that new PS3 game, so I'm gonna get that instead of hay". The condition of the horses is directly related to the economic condition of the country and owners.
When the tourism industry was good, the people were able to keep their animals in decent condition. As awful as the horses look, their owners are taking care of them to the best of their current ability.

I wasn't going to reply to this but I decided too..
This thread is about HORSES not the people, not the dogs, cats etc if you want to discuss that please feel free to make a thread and not stir up drama!

And thank you Spyder for clearing that up also.

There was a horse feed 06/07/11 and from what I could tell it looks as if a few of the horses have put on SOME condition, still a long way to go but at lest there are some who have put condition on!

They where doing some filming that day and there was an arabian stallion being filmed, here is a picture


and a link to the other pictures from the day

You are the one who made it about the people. You don't get to post a topic, bash a bunch of people, and then expect everyone to agree. Yes it IS about the people if you're going to act like this is all their fault and they're not suffering either.

In what world did a forum suddenly become a place where everyone just blindly agrees with any information put forth with absolutely no conscious thought of their own?

What is the purpose of the photo of the stallion? He looks to be in excellent shape.

Did i write "The people raa raa" no, no I DID NOT! Read my OP correctly and stop assuming it IS about the people, I never wrote for you to take it as if it was, since it's not!

The point of the photo is that THERE ARE horses in good condition, Though I never seemed to understand why they where filming him while it was about the others too? Guess their showing that some are in good condition.

You can't have one without the other. Life doesn't work that way. My point is that I find it deplorable to not also have sympathy for all other animals AND people in this situation, not just the horses. Everyone is suffering, and nobody is to "blame". It's a horrific situation that is being felt deeply by all involved.
