WOW did not expect such a negatve response

1st, the rope is put through the skin to 'promote good health',some times they use wire or bit s of cloth....gross I know, its a ridiulous practise that has been around since the stone ages...

Okay just to be clear this is an ogranised group of people going over, to work with egpytian groups and help with vet hospital and education programs already set up over there.

I know its horrific but its also something we as westerners cannot completly understand, we have the resources and education to know better, please remember this is a desert there is literally no food,or tack shops etc over there unless they have money to buy it. Also if you grow up seeing horses like this all the time you just think this is the norm, sad but true

Trust me im well aware of what im getting into, and its not just an arab problem I have seen it all over the world in places where there really is no excuse for it goin on! Just look in animals shelters anywher you go.

they have the resources as well. They just choose to squander them and live like savages. They have had access to advanced civilization and education for thousands of years. Their engineers built the pyramids,,, but they live like that. It's their own fault.
America was a complete wilderness two hundred years ago, we got our act together and opened a few tack shops,

This subject was previously brought up and I ended up getting into a minor disagreement with the thread starter. Those horses are being tortured, it's overwhelmingly sad. Putting a bandaid on it will not fix the issues over there. The US can't support the world. We can't even take care of our own, we are broke yet we spend like we are debt free! There is way too much money being given to other countries. We cannot afford it! When is the last time you have driven into an inner city, like Detroit? It's pretty sad and very dangerous. We have people suffering in the US. We need to take care of our own first.

A man began jogging down the beach the day after a major storm had hit the area, and he became
Increasingly troubled as he passed countless starfish that had been left stranded on the shore.
He reluctantly continued on his run until he saw a woman in the distance who was moving about in
Such a way that she appeared to be dancing. As he grew closer, he discovered the woman wasn't dancing;
She was throwing the starfish back into the sea. He shook his head in dismay and approached the young
Woman, as she bent over to pick up another starfish, saying, "Excuse me miss, but why are you wasting
Your time? There are thousands of stranded starfish and miles of beach. Are you crazy? You can't possibly
Make a difference!" The woman paused for a moment; thoughtfully looked at the stranger, and then down
At the starfish she cradled delicately in her hand. She then turned away to gently toss the starfish back into
The surf and, looking at the stranger she said, "Sure made a difference to that one."

I have to agree though once you leave they are just going to continue mistreating their animals-and there are plenty of abused horses closer to home that need help.

zero to this cause-I just don't think everyone should tear this person apart.

I didn't tear the OP down at all, but you posting that sappy drivel helps nothing.

Were those 'rescues' of yours purchased? If so, they weren't rescues, they were merely bought horses. Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back.

No they were not purchased.
[I didn't tear the OP down at all] Then I wasn't talking about you.
