I read the article and once again it's very biased. Lots of talk of so called cowboys manhandling and peeing on horses (I couldn't make that up). From the sounds of the article it made it sound like there are horse abusers and horse killers around every corner. However I think they are the exception. Ignorance is much more at fault. Of course report abuse or neglect as you see it but I guess I don't understand the point of the thread.
A real cowboy could handle my horse any day.
