Death is never a nice thing but starving to death is even worse so I would rather see an animal put down before that

Private owners caring for an individual is not how the whole horse world exists

No, I really wasn't aware of your intent. I didn't see your 'caring for' in the same context as 'caring about' until you clarified but you're right, there can be a huge difference.

No i'm not a vegan. Lol If a horse is old and crippled then its owner should put it down and bury it and have some respect. I've had old horses that needed to be put down, and they were buried on my property. More people should look into a cause of finding homes for starving animals instead of killing them, I've rescued several horses from bad homes and found them new ones & one of horses is a rescue. That's what money should be put into not killing.

While that is admirable... There isn't the money, resources, or available land to do that. I've rescued several and re-homed some. But there are too many that are dangerous, unfit, and medically unsound to keep around. There has to be a solution for them that is "profitable" enough to do the best for them until the verdict is reached that they must go. MONEY should go towards sterilization, affordable vet care, and salvaging neglected horses that are fit and need a new lease on life.

You can come round up dozens of horses here that have been turned loose, and adopt several that are unfit, medically unsound, very old for little to nothing. That'll free up some resources.
Euthanizing/disposing them costs too much and is often against county regulations. Around here they shoot them in the head and feed them to hogs and hunting dogs. Often they are picked up at local sales for around $20, the dogs are sicked on them for practice. They usually die from the dogs, but one man thought it was funny to watch the hogs finish them off. JSYK... those kinds of people couldn't afford to do this if the horses were selling at fair market price.

Really? So it's only HORSES you consider a sin to slaughter, and not all those other animals? After all, they're not pretty like horses, so it's okay to kill and eat them. :roll:

This CAN'T be legal and I have a hard time believing it's actually happening...

It's NOT legal, but it is happening.
Here is part of one story, the horses were also being feed to the hogs.
LeFLORE COUNTY, Okla. -- A LeFlore County, Okla., man and his grandson have been arrested in what many investigators said was the worst animal abuse case they've seen.
"This office has worked several cases of animal cruelty with horses and cattle, but I have never seen anything similar to this," said Sheriff Bruce Curnutt.
Albert McReynolds and William McReynolds, were taken into custody Tuesday evening on multiple counts of animal cruelty.
Investigators said they found multiple horse carcasses chained to dogs and scattered about the property.
"One of them (dog) was actually chained to the leg of a horse," said Curnutt.
They believe the horses were tied to the dogs so the dogs could feed off them.
Deputies were preparing to return with people to help them gather the dogs, carcasses and other horses they said are close to starvation on the property east of Honobia, Okla.
Here is the link to the story, the video is messed up or else you would have gotten to see the animals, carcasses, heard more of the story etc.

And I've heard of worse.

It wouldn't be legal but that has never stopped some people from doing what they want to do. I believe there is no limit of cruelty to some. Broken moral compass or something.

OK, so just an isolated incident of crazy people. Not a county-wide phenomenon of hordes of people buying cheap horses to bait with dogs.

I didn't say it was a nationwide phenomenon. I said around here, and I said those kinds of people. I'm sure they aren't the first ones to think of this. And my point stands that this kind of cruelty wouldn't exist, or not as much if horses were sold AT MARKET PRICE. I am all for slaughter, especially to feed dogs, if it is done "humanely".
