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.

I have to agree totally!

I am laughing at the peeing on horses thing. How funny. How exactly is peeing on your horse cruel and abusive? I will agree with yucky. But cruel and abusive I am not seeing.

Humiliating the horse into submission? Who knows. Seems dangerous on the cowboy's part.

What the hell? Seriously? Most of those photos don't look half as bad as the cuts and scrapes my horse gets goofing around with her paddock buddies. In fact she is sporting a scrape that looks nastier than some of those pics right now!

Here is the photo, it is along her back to the point of her hip:


Know what I treated it with? Nothing. It isn't infected so I'll probably just use MTG to help the hair grow back. Guess I am a horse abuser.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Just want to add too that apart from the minor scrapes on those horses, they actually look like they are in very good health and well looked after. Also, those cuts/scrapes appear to have been doctored - not neglected at all!
