Why not send them "off" and try to help other more suitable horses instead of continuing to feed those... It's so sad but necessary.

    Why not ask for donations for euthanasia? It seems to me that some rescues spend too much money on horses with little to no hope for being adopted to good homes.
    I know some people won't donate to a doomed horse but others will. I personally have paid to have horses PTS, some I knew but most I didn't. I also offer burial sites on my property free of charge, though I will have to start requiring a grave marker.
    I'm not unique.

    Agreed, Natisha. Sometimes the 'save them at all costs' gets a little old.

    There's nothing wrong with euthing an old, crippled, or even bad tempered horse. None of them are suitable for adoption, and I'd rather donate to have them put down than keep throwing money at a lost cause.

    Rescues, like doctors, need to know when to say 'enough'.

    I'm anti slaughter. Slaughtering animals is a sin, shouldn't be done. I love horses and have a passion for them, I would Never agree to slaughtering them. That's a horrible thing to do to an innocent animal.

    I certainly hope she's a vegan Demon, as well as rides only bareback with no bridle or reins, since leather is a product of the meat industry.

    Abuse and neglect are sins, not processing animals for food. If you want to talk about sins we need to involve the Bible and its teachings, and I'd rather not open up that particular can of worms.

    The local people who do not support slaughter would probably have been offended if the news did a story asking for money to kill horses!!! Ha! Ha!! I agree, pull the plug.

    So, given the actual world we live in (which is far from ideal) you would rather they were left to starve or be neglected until they died.

    How many animals were slaughtered in the bible? Yet, it's a sin....

    I also hope you consume no animal products, Becca.

    Anti-slaughter: it just seems wrong to kill such a beautiful creature no matter the reason.
