    Should of not gotten a horse. But they do anyways. You can't help the stupidity of people, so slaughter is an alternative for that stupidity

    Its not stupid...what if a family member died and you used your money to pay for a funeral then all of a sudden your horse comes down with an illness...what can you do then? What if you couldn't get the money from other people? Its not a horrible thing nor is it stupid....id send my horse to slaughter if I couldn't humanely put it down first....slaughter isn't a bad thing, stop making it out to be more then it really is...

    Hmmm. Right. So every person who has a horse and not enough money to pay for it, just had a death in the family and used up all their money on a funeral. So every person has a good excuse? Because you know, every one in the world has good intentions, everyone in the world means well, everyone who has ever sent a horse to slaughter because they couldn't afford to feed it just so happened to run out of money. No, people are stupid, people do ignorant things. People cannot grasp alot of things. I know several people who got a free pony for their kids to ride and didn't think about the costs. There are people down the street from me that kept a pony in a dog pen. Then tied it to a tree, when the pony got out. They don't have the money nore the proper place to keep a horse yet they still have one. All it gets is grass, lucky that pony is fat off grass. But, your telling me that, that is not stupid? How can that not be stupid? They don't vet it, they don't get the farrier out. Its just there. You cannot tell me that is not stupid.

    I never said slaughter was bad. I am all for slaughter. What im saying is Slaughter is an alternative route for stupid people who stupidly got a horse without knowing what goes into it. I'd rather see a horse go to slaughter then starve in a pasture anyday

    In all honesty if a horse of mine needed to be put down right now, I couldn't afford it. We are having hard times right now. But my horses are still well fed and taken care of.

    There's always guns. Bullets don't cost much.

    First of all, that's a very far fetched "what if"
    But I will play along and answer it...
    So what if that happened. Well, if you had been a responsible horse owner all along, you would have a relationship with your vet. More than likely, you can bill it.
