I never said that specific way in slaughtering them was the right way, I think shooting them would be better yes, but if they personally don't want to do that then that's their choice and I highly doubt a couple of people on horseforum are going to change hundreds of peoples preference on how to kill a horse, now people could save the horses, but that's a whole different story.

do not misunderstand me Harlee - I too think that slaughter is required but I just wanted to say on the whole point of "a few people on a horse forum not going to change hundreds of minds". Just out of interest Harlee how do you think that these types of things get changed - it is because 1 person said that they had had enough and voiced their opinion and others decided to join with them. Don't ever think that one person can not make a difference because they can - look at Erin Brockervich..........

This makes me so sad. Haflingers are one of my favorite breeds, and they are adorable.
Stop slaughter, end the abuse!

What a heart break. Animal cruelty in general breaks my heart. I Have seen some pretty nasty things on slaughter as well as cruelty towards dogs and a few other animals.

It makes me think of the PMU farms as well, same idea. Mass production of not needed foals which are sent to slaughter if not sold to horse buyers.

Sad, sad situation.

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!
were can I get one

I think it would be a good idea to post the links on here directly. I wouldn't mind going thru it myself just to check things out. Thanks

I would like to see sources on this. I think it must be kept in mind that it is all to easy to fall into the trap of believing the emotional appeals from biased sources. While I'm sure that it does occur it is probably not nearly so dramatized as you may have read. Also keep in mind that this is occuring in Europe. For the most part horse slaughter is regarded in a very different light than it is in America.

For my position, I see that this is an Austrian Issue, and so no concern of mine.
