    Delete, is whatever your pony has contagious to other horses?

    Is there any medication that could improve/reverse his condition? Sorry if you already answered this one.

    Back where I am from, horse steak is more accessible than beef. It is quite disgusting because you could go to any grocery store and find horse meat up with the rest of the meat. It's disgusting.

    It is horse country here. I don't know of anyone here who would consider their horse out for meat to be ok.

    Please don't give me a hard time on this but, ( lets say ) If my horse ever broke her leg , And the vet was not in the area I would have her put down by a gun...I would never ever sell a horse to slaughter ,no matter what his problems are...

    Delete, I feel really sorry for you and your horse and hopes he can go to someone that can give him the care he needs or humanley (sp) euthanized....

    I would absolutely never sell my horses to slaughter. I think Humane euthanasia is the only way to deal with unwanted/suffering horses.

    Oh and just wanted to give a thumbs up to Suffolk Racetrack for their zero tolerance policy
    Small changes do make a difference.

    Good for him. That's great news. Hopefully with time more people will be doing this.

    I don't see what is so terrible about the body going for food. Once the horse is dead, what difference does it make what happens to it? Let me clairify and say that as it stands none of my personal horses have gone to slaughter. But if a horse is dangerous and the slaughter is humane (Canada is not so bad, a quick bullet to the head) I don't have a problem with it. Many say that the euthenasia that the vets do is slow, and not always an easy death. Also, once the chemicals are used, a horse can not be buried, or used for meat. The only means of disposal is cremation. Which is not always easily done.

    I live in the US and have seen firsthand what happens when slaughter is outlawed. There are worse things than death.

    I grre with you, but...

    In alot of horse slaughter plants, horses are not , euthanized properly with a gun, or bolt gun..

    If they were maby people would not freak out on the slaughter issues.
