I am just curious if this is a personal preference that does not pertain to animals cruelty, or do you really feel that the use of an arena is considered cruel? I am not seeing the connection, but that very well just could be me. Personally, I think my horses are just as happy doing arena work as they are out on the trail, but then again thats just me.

Lol, following NewHeart's tangent, we've got a horse that isn't ever completely calm and relaxed unless she's in an arena. Maybe someone wacky could say that's only because she's been raised in a supressed manner and is now screwy in the head thanks to humanity... but I'm not even going to try to get into that.

I do keep to a mostly poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy diet (veggies and fruits included) and when life allows for it, I plan on getting myself a few chickens rather than to store buy eggs. And yes, with all said and done, the human being is an omnivore... no denying it. That's why we have the little pointy teeth in our mouth (though you're welcome to file them off if you like... don't know whether that would mess with your enamel or not).

As for destroying a leather saddle just so other people can't use it. There's an element of stupidity in that. The animal who gave that leather is already dead. Nothing can be done to undo it. But if you pass the saddle on to someone else, they are not as likely to buy a new leather saddle and thus perpetuate the killing. Make sense?

Most animals are made in a test tube? This township has over 10,000 head of cattle and 1 million turkeys. Not 1 from a test tube. So tell me all you that think meat comes from these terrable places do you eat meat? Have any suggestions to raise it another way and still feed over 300,000,000 people?

wow I never knew they used horses in bull fighting! I never liked bull fighting to begin with, what is the point in provocking an animal and then slowly killing it? A little demented and sick to me. And then blinding a horse???? I have just lost my respect for the spanish, portugesse(sp i dont care...) and other "things" that do that and sit there and watch it..... I just dont see the point, if you want to see blood and gore then fight anotehr human like the gladiators to the death instead of using poor animals especially since horses usually arent bred to fight like that.....i was actually planning on visiting spain when (if) i go to England...not now.

The rider casts her heart over the fence, the horse jumps in pursuit of it.

I believe and am almost sure of this, but in Portugesse bull fighting the bull is not killed. Unlike in Mexico, Spain and several other countries.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

I do not understand why the Pope has not told them to end the cruelty. The Catholic church teaches that animals do have souls and they have a day set aside where they bless animals. If I was the Pope I would tell them to stop the cruelty or be excommunicated. I just had my 33 year old horse euthanized last month by the veterinarian and it was humane. He injected the sodium pentobarbitol(blue not pink) in her neck and she died peacefully. She had gone down and could not get up.
