    So you've never seen a horse like that at slaughter?
    Stop putting words into my mouth I never said that I'v seen worse then that go through Slaughteryards. What I am saying is, they don't deserve to live on like that, in that condition.

    So once they kill all the injured and already dieing horses then the world will be a happy place? WRONG. They are not going to go through the entire world and kill all the horses that are like that. Even if they did, its an endless process, people will continue to starve horses, to beat horses, to breed horses. It wont stop. Plus you know how much time and money that will take? Jesus, think about it.

    ahh ok so I'm going to accept horses being brutally slaughtered over starving to death? I don't think so.

    There are 200 organizations that oppose the proposed ban on horse slaughter. Included in this group are the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), the largest breed association in the world; the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP); the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA);[17];

    Either way the pony dies.

    I was doing some reasearch and I stumbled upon a website promoting prevention of horse slaughter. Here is what I found on the subject of unwanted horses.

    What should be done with unwanted horses?
    There are horses right now being slaughtered that could be saved if their owners would simply take the responsibility to euthanise their unsound or unwanted horses.

    But the problem is their owners wont take the time or the money to do so. So, they still have yet to answer the question of where all the abused horses are going to go.

    First, The cost on euthanasia needs to go down. Then that question won't exist.

    Why do you think people even care enough to pay $5 to get a horse put down? They don't, some people would sooner let the horse roam around dying in the streets then pay $5 to put it down. ( Im not saying that's a set price, its just an example). They take it to slaughter to MAKE MONEY off of the horse, aswell as get rid of it. Once that horse is put down, there is the transfer fee, which I highly doubt they will pay that. Lets say a person has a herd of 25 dying horses that are going to go to slaughter. Even if euthinsation is now lower, that's still alot of money. For transfer and killing. If a person will send a horse to slaughter, I don't think they give a flying heap about that horse, and I doubt they will pay to have it "humanely put down"

    And I really hope you're not trying to get me to think horse slaughter is right after what you just said.

    I really hope you know that your chaning the subject because you know that there is no answer to what is going to happen to all the abused horses.

    What about the cows and chickens? They are treated worse then horses and I don't hear anyone crying and screaming over them.

    I can't answer that because I don't know. No one does. I'd rather take the chance and test it out then let this go on.

    And I do cry and scream over them, along with seals, bears, dogs, cats, etc. I'm vegan by the way.
