Walkergal slaughter is something that is needed more of in the world right now.
There are THOUSANDs of horses right now starving and in pain there are a couple of hundred rescue centres. These rescue centres are at the capacity where they can look after what they have properly and give them a good chance of life again. If they were to take in another load of horses then all of the current horses they have there life quality would then go down to compensate for more coming in. Would you not rather 20 well fed happy content horses in this world then 40 hungry miserable horses who were saved from slaughter?
A horse does not distinguish fear so when you take say a little 6month old foal from his dam to wean his fear is no more different then taking your 16year old horse to the slaughter house they have no concept of what is going on. The problem most people have with slaughter is that they can't distinguish there people feelings from animal feelings.
Also why is it awful for a horse to go to slaughter and the peson who sends them is cruel, mean , obviously didnt care but if a farmer loads 100 of his cows on to a truck for slaughter its ok? They all will be scared sure but people seem to give horses these humane feelings they have.
Sure there are other options but are they going to pay?? A vet costs lots of money to put the horse down and dispose of the body whereas a slaughter pays. In recessionary times every cent counts. Sure you might be in an ok financial situation but try see it from a different point of view an entire family are living in poverty and the horse out the back is doing nothing because its old or sick. That horse will feed an entire family if it goes to slaughter but could possibly bankrupt them if they get him euthanised.
Animal charities ALWAYS pawn off the bad side of slaughter but how often are they showing you the bad side of recession?? If the horse is cpsting more then the family has then horse goes. There is not enough buyers out there to take in all these uneanted horses.
ALso slaughter removes the bad from the world. Horse blood lines are becoming comletely washed out with all the breeding that occured any horse that showed any kind of potential was bred to anything. These alright horses are nothing special and there are hundreds of them out there. Now you go to auction and you see actual well bred horses going for nothing then a whole load of BYB horses which are you going to go for?? The horse world needs to get rid of its muck and slaughter is the only way to do it.
Also there are entire continients starving to death and we have thousands of unloved horses that are edible standing around.......Sorry but those people need feeding to.
Sure its not pretty or desirable Iv sold a few horses that way myself obviously I wouldnt sell my heart horses to slaughter but if circumstances arise that I can't get rid of them any other way and we need money well I can tell you my parents would have them gone. It is how it is and that's that. When you have seen enough badly built not good enough for anyhitng horses being bred you will understand why they need to removed from breeding and destroying the horse world eventually,
