If you go back to before the recession horse slaughter was still happening. I think it is wrong when people jsut do it. I know you all are going to keept drilling it into my head. I am sixteen and I have read things and formed my opinion. THis is the last I am going to be talking about this. If any of you have stories of abuse of horses other than starving, i will be happy, well not really happy, but i would appreciate it if I could hear those stories instead of facts that I already do know. THank you so much.
The scholar in me has to type. No solid project of any kind is going to knowingly omit an entire segment of the issue. Not solid research, not a convincing argument. It is fallacious to put together what I'm assuming to be a project meant to illuminate and persuade others against equine abuse/slaughter, etc., using only the cons. Good scholarship will present the pros as well, and refute the pros logically. It may be your opinion, and this I respect (although I do not agree), but it's a matter of sound research and scholarship to explore and engage the other side of the fence in your presentation.

I am not planning on just showing the cons... I just made this thread to get stories. I have other plans, as well. I understand that there is another side, and I think that is what people didn't understand. I really made this thread to get stories like I said before, I did not expect such a blow out here, at the time I really didn't think that it was neccessary to explain my WHOLE project, like I siad i didn't expect people to turn around and create an issue. But thank you for respecting my opinion, scout rider :)
