Florida Residents Beware

I don't know if this video will post but someone is mutilating and burning horses in the Miami area. Be aware!

The video showed an 8y.o that was missing, nothing about burning horses?

The headline where the link links too likely changed from the horses to the missing kid. Happens sometimes.

I read an article about that a few months ago. It seems that there are bands of thieves who are stealing horses and butchering them for the meat that is sold at a premium on the black market.

Owners are finding their horses, or what is left of them, nearby. The photos they showed were very disturbing.

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.

That is sickening! How anyone can treat a horse, or any animal, like that is just awful. And all just for money on the black market. The people doing this shouldn't be allowed in civilized society, I hope they get locked up for a very, very long time.

OMG, that just makes me sick. }:( I wish it was like back in the old days where if you caught someone stealing or hurting your horse, you either shoot them where they stand or hang them from the tree in your front yard. I may sound cruel but if I caught someone messing with my horse, I would shoot them and hide their body where it could never be found. My horses are like my kids and that ^^ really bothers me. I am glad nothing like that happens around this area (someone probably would get shot).

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
