Pish-posh Lis, don't bother her with silly details!
Vicky, I would suggest finding a more anti-slaughter friendly BB before you lose your mind.
Seriously, you appear to be an intelligent individual, but you're fighting a losing battle here.
No amount of rhetoric or hand wringing is going to change our minds, and I think you'd be happier with a group who shared your viewpoint.
You're more than welcome to stay of course, because I think you could add insight and information to the BB. Just not about equine slaughter, 'cause as a whole we're not opposed to it.
FWIW, my animals are all euthed humanely, I've never sold at auction, and I have a 'useless' horse now who will be with me until he passes. He will then be buried, alongside the one I had put down in 2007.
You can't paint everyone with such broad brush strokes. What I do with my
horses does not give me the right to dictate what others may or may not do with theirs
. That's the problem I have with all
the antis; do what I
want because I say so and know better than you!!!
That's all it essentially comes down to. You find something distasteful, so think everyone else should too.
