Well, that's a ****ty situation. Of course we all feel bad for the horses. I won't donate though; I have my own to care for. As sad as it is, if someone else keeps fixing their problems, the conditions will never improve for these horses. Don't they have any sort of animal cops over there? That would be the best way to go.

Yup, them Arabs won't ever get a dime of my money. I have nothing against specific people from the middle east that I have met and found to be nice. These same individual people hate the political and religious crap that is going on. So, in general, they can fight their own battles in their own country and stay away from me, as I will stay away from them.

OH, and yes, unfortunately then this translates to I won't help their animals because I'd be throwing money down the proverbial toilet.

Sad situation. It is unfortunate that some people EVERYWHERE treat their horses like this. Can't really believe all the negative feedback. I'm sure a simple "can't help out" would have been as effective...

You are on a forum, people explain why they say what they say :)

I disagree with the super negative opinions some of you guys have stated. I have been deployed to the middle east in several countries and I did see the extremists. But also met many strong and good people. But thats the good thing, we live in a free country amd can say and think what we want. And even if I disagree I cant get too angry at these opinions when so many of us have lost so much at the hands of the extremists from that region.

I do agree 100% with Speed Racer though. Its a nice thought. Helping those animals..But its like putting a tiny bandaide on a gushing artery. A lot more has to change than giving them some "teaching" and supplies.

Can someone explain to me what I'm seeing in that second picture. Why are there ropes coming out of his body?

They were more than likely put on too tight and left on too long that they cut into the skin and the skin started to heal around it and whatnot. Its pretty common with abused dogs and their collars on too tight :(
