    Foal
    I live in Canada and we still have it here and most of the horses in America come up here, I would personally be OK with it, if they could figure out how to be more humane with it. They did it for cattle, time to figure something out for horses because they don't deserve to be treated the way they are.

    But until it can be done right and people learn that these are living creatures, it should not be done at all. Now horse slaughter is JUST about the money and that is it.

    the problem isnt people have to learn they are living creatures.... the problem is they don't care.
    If it wasnt done at all, all the hroses would starve to death on the sides of roads or beaten to death or left to starve until all the bad people in the world learned to be nice or they all died... sooo until the human race dies... there would be no horse slaughter.

    The problem is the mean people will slaughter a horse easily for money, but the nice people don't want to. So the job is left to the bad people.

    Exactly. But I guess these people feel that slaughter can not be about money. Eye roll.

    In Canada and in the United States, overbreeding is the problem, quite frankly. If the animal was never bred in the first place it can't be slaughtered later on.
    Recent undercover investigations by the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition (CHDC Chambers of Carnage) and later veterinary examination of such footge (http://www.defendhorsescanada.org/pd...nonfootage.pdf), the first of which was most in-depth, shows that the current ways of processing were NOT humane.
    That being said, I believe that there should be a breeding tax imposed- not just to register your horse, but to breed at all- in Canada at least. For each foal born, the breeder would have to pay a nominal fee of say, 50 or 100 dollars. That would help to weed out the back yard breeders who's foals sell at auction for $25.
    Just my two cents.

    I have no problem with horse slaughter. Granted I wish it didn't have to happen but some times its how things go.
    If horses are well taken care of during the process (which half the time they are not) then I don't have a problem with it. BUT most of the time it doesn't happen, sadly.

    I wouldn't send my horses to slaughter, I have tried to buy a few horses like that & give them a good home but I can't save every single horse.

    A cause n' affect essay seems amazing! I should do one for my writing class, wonder how it would turn out.
    Good luck!
