    That's a tough question. There is a significant difference between "send a horse to slaughter" and "sell and not keep in touch"! I sell a lot of horses that I don't keep in touch with. But I personally couldn't see myself sending a horse to slaughter. I do however think it's a necessary evil in the horse industry that should remain an option.

    I'm sorry it's working out that way, Delete. :( If I hear of or see anyone interested, I'll pass them on to you. We'll do all we can to help!

    Farmpony--since there aren't slaughterhouses in the US, the horses are being shipped out of the country, mainly to Mexico. The sad part is, slaughter in Mexico is not regulated. That means that the workers in slaughterhouses don't have to be kind to the horses before or during slaughter. They don't have to use a quick bullet to the head, either, if you catch my drift. I've read the horror stories in my research of what goes on in those Mexican slaughterhouses....it's really sad.

    ^Agreed. ;) They usually ship them to another country, such as Mexico.

    Our mares will probably outlive me, but if they don't, they'll have a nice, grassy spot on our property for all the good years they've given us.

    I could never do it myself, but understand that some other people do for their own reasons. I personally would rather be there to wish thema peaceful goodbye and then have them cremated - but I guess that's also the funeral director in me coming out - it's much easier to scatter ashes then to guess if I am feeding them to my dogs, ya know?

    Honestly, Delete, you can avoid this horse being sent to slaughter by doing just this.
