This case like all the others are why our equine rescue and Dog and cat rescues are overflowing. I volunteer at an Equine rescue and donate hay and feed to help as do lot's of other caring people.
Thank God the good caring humans still outnumber the evil bad humans.
I have noticed unfortunately on a lot of other forum websites going back to 2007 maybe further back 2007 is the furthest back I have gone so far, that there have been many people bad mouthing Shatomar Arabians as being inferior crossbreeds. Which no doubt would have helped contribute to lack of sales of these poor horses. Sure it was a Backyard breeding outfit, But Fugly and other sites should tone down the derogatory remarks that helped to fuel this loss of horses. All Horse people need to stop being blinded by registration papers. I have owned cross bred horses as well as Registered Quarter Horses and registered Appaloosas that cost up to 8 grand for a couple ropers and I have had cross bred horses that performed just as well in the arenas. Nothing wrong with pure blood. With the horse crisis we now find ourselves in all Breeders whether Professional breeders and Back yard breeders need to end all breeding until the Economy has turned around or the Hay producers start putting out affordable hay country wide. The market for most new horses is dead right now and breeders cannot afford to warehouse new foals.
Tory needs to be punished at the full extent of the law and do some serious time in general prison population and never be allowed to own any kind of animal again as well as confiscation of any property she owns. And Maximum Fines and restitution.
