"Some screwed up horse rots in a field." I assume that you mean he will rot in a field because you can't ride him, right? You couldn't just take care of a horse, huh? Mess up a horse, shoot him in the head. Move on. It's time this culture starts taking a little more responsibility. I would rather die being responsible than live to 100 damaging other beings to protect myself. (And if she gets the help I keep suggesting the chance of HD getting killed or ending up in the dreaded wheelchair some of you roll out every few threads is very slim.)
On "mean" animals. Animals can be afraid, defensive, emotionally damaged, but "mean" takes a kind of forethought that animals just don't have.
I don't anthropomorphize animals either. If I saw them the same way I saw humans, I would have a hell of a lot less sympathy for them.
