It's not that we don't care, we've just been over and over it so many times, noone has anything left to say.
I don't need to all I need to do is open my backdoor and open my eyes.
I have tree comercial operations around me that uses Horses for anything from Hunting expoditions to Horse back vacation.
All of them used to take there Horses to the sale knowing who would by them because they didn't get rid of them until they couldn't be used anymore.
Now the Horses are on pastures where the other Horses pick on them they have to fight for hay because it is a large group of Horses.
I have been in the Hill several times now and called the Humane Society because of Horses that are now starving because no one wants them and no one wants to take them.
In my are hay has trippled in cost since the slaughter houses closed.
I don't really care about statistics because guess what you can take any statistik and make it fit the situation.
I come from a country that has slaughterd horses as far back as I can remember and still does.
And yes the transport and slaughter of Horses wasn't pretty and should have been regulated but the facts are the facts there are thousands of unwanted Horses they didn't all of the sudden become loved and wanted.
They are still unwanted now people just have to find different way's to get rid of them.
And I appologize to anyone that this may offend but I am just so sick of people that think they have just saved the world by stoping slaughter without looking at the larger picture.
