airspace.. I have 11 horses. All were throw away horses. I spend anywhere from 6- 12 grand a year on Feed alone. Now Add water cost, land cost (taxes ) , farrier, Vets. I don't send my horses to slaughter or to auction. I have sold a few in the past. To Euth a horse its 350 plus a 250 fee to dispose of the carcass . So far I have been able to afford my horses but with Obama nomics, the day is coming that I will have to get rid of most of them.
Now I will blow out my credit cards and have as many euthanized as possible, But some people do not do this. There needs to be the option for the horses no one wants . If it is done as humanely as possible (which sure as heck wont happen in Mexico) then I don't have to big of an issue . Double decker trucks have been outlawed for a long time. If you are so concerned about the meat supply then don't eat meat. Raise your own meat and have it slaughtered . Ifyou are soo against this, then you need to do something other than whine about it. Go to the auctions and buy up all the slaughter bound horses, as it has Never stopped.
