bsms says it wonderfully. It's not that any of us like the fact that horses are being killed, but it is better than the alternative. The lesser of two evils, if you'd prefer.
I really wish that all the animal activist groups would realize that. There isn't enough money in the world to allow for every horse born these days to be kept safe and healthy, and I for one would rather kill them myself than let them suffer.
In fact, it's my opinion that more slaughter plants should be opened, and run by horse enthusiasts. Yes, it'd be heartbreaking work, but then you could be sure that the plant would go to every length possible to make the event as quick, painless, and untraumatic as possible.
