Haflinger Foals!!!

Every year thousands of Haflinger Foals are bred just for the entertainment of tourists in Austria and Switzerland. And at the end of the season at around November time thousands get butchered. Just because their mane is too dark or they might have the "wrong" colour! They go on an awful trip across europe to Italy, France or Poland. I have found a video on youtube and its is one of the most heartwrenching things I have ever seen! Foals been beat up a trailer, nasty injuries, fear and this constant screaming for their mums. I have a very close friend who is member of a horse charity. One year the had raised enough cash to rescue 5 of these foals.
She told me it was the worst thing they ever did. They had to play god and had to decide which foals were going to live. What they did was, they had a big horse box and they parked it right in this big building where all these horses were waiting around. And the horses that were mostly interested in this box where the ones whose life took a turn for the better. They got rescued.

I so would love to rescue one of these poor souls but I know I havent got the knowledge just yet.

I just hope that one day the breeders will change their minds and not breed as much foals anymore.

If anybody is interested in some websites where you can rescue a hafliner foal let me know!

Gosh that sounds horrible. Makes me so sad and angry that people can be so cruel.
That's really heartwarming that your friend has been saving some, although it must be so hard to chose.

I'd like info on the websites if you don't mind? I'd love to rescue one or two?!?

I know, it's a sad subject. But hey it's life and there isn't anything 'you' can do about it, Besides sign petitions and giving money.I cry alot because of what happens to underserving horses(which is all of them). I wish just once that humans can get turned into an animal that gets slaughtered and see what those poor animals are going through. Maybe that way there won't be 'animal breeding for food'.It's irritating and annoying but I have to just sit back and watch it happen.

We just need to think positivly. I hate animal cruelty. And I don't really like it when people say, well, that's life. (No offence to anyone that says that. I know it is but I hate to think it) When I'm older, when I have a lot of money, I am going to try and save as much animals as I can.
On the news in the past week, there has been a report that an elephant was stabbed in the fott repedtivly by a zoo keeeper. And neglect on a couple of apes as well. I just don't know how people can possibly live there lives doing such mean things!
I am also against whaling. I hate it. I know that they only use 70% of the meat and the use the meat to eat, put in perfumes, and asain beers. They are also hunting whales on AUSTRALIAN WATERS. They cannot do that. The should AT LEAST be hunnting on there own LEGAL waters instead of invading us and killing our presious whales. Don't you just hate animal cruelty. I'll like to see one day, all the animals that got hurt, come back and bash the people up that hurt them. Let's see how they like it. Oh no, they can just go to a hospital can't they? Whereas the poor little things can't because they people that did it don't care.

Horses are overpopulated, and when people who over-breed and don't want to take care of them, what else can you do but slaughter them if no one will save them and take care of them? Slaughter is a necessary thing. Either way there would just be horses dead everywhere. Not everyone is fortunate enough to know how to take proper care of a horse so thus, dead horses in fields. That is why slaughter is necessary, and I think that those of you who have saved horses from slaughter are good people.

Yes, but do you think they could do it a better way? Instead of cutting their throats and letting them bleed to death while being skinned alive, I would much rather them being shot in the head. It's more quicker and they wouldn't feel any pain. Poor things, way so young?
