I hate it how people go to great lengths to protect dogs and cats from abuse, but yet, horses aren't as protected. No one would stand for mass amounts of dogs to be killed for meat production. Horses are considered livestock animals, not pets. This is what I think is sick. Horses are pets just as much as dogs are.

um absolutley not, if a law was passed saying horses where pets it would be very bad,,,you really don't want horses to be considered pets,,,and im extremely ever upset horse slaughter has been banned,,,,without the kill market horses are going for 45-250 dollars papers and all nothing wrong with them,,,the horse industry has lost soo much money ever since horse slaughter has been gone,,,i think its stupid ppl think that its inhumane because its not,,,horses are just the same as cows yet we don't make a big deal over them,,,,take this as an example if a horse has a severley broken leg and someone cannot pay for it to be euthanized or treated for by a vet do you think the horse would be better off with the broken leg or would it be better to be taken somewhere and made use of and btw horse slaughter houses do not kill them inhumanely so ppl need to get over themselves,,,stuff happens and it can happens to anyone,,,horse racing is not going anywhere and neither is horse slaughter and they ARE NOT going to be turned into pets

can we please remember the Conscientious Etiquette Policy please guys. If you are new and havent read it yet, please do so before continuing to post.

We all have different views on this particular subject but as usual, some people arent able to voice their opinions in a mature and level headed way. Swearing wont be tolerated on the HorseForum.

For those who are new to the site topics can and will be closed if the quality of conversation goes downhill. This is unfair for those of us who are ready to talk about things in a fair manner. So please, lets get back on track and keep the thread open.

Also, although threads can get off track, its best to stick to the subject at hand. Changing the subject to express such 'heated' opinions is called hijacking/flaming which is another thing not allowed on the forum.

Back to topic please :)

Although everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I highly disagree with horse racing. Its all about money and not love or respect. A two year old horse should not be running its heart out and risking its life. It should be out in a pasture or starting training. Forums are about posting ur own opinion. You don't have to tell people to shut up to get your point across. We clearly understand what type of person you are from reading that!!

Of course the best way to deal with the horse with broken leg is to haul her to slaughter standing in trailer for days...

I'm not against racing if (like JDI said) it's done with some thinking, love and respect to the horses. And I'm not against slaughter if it'd be done in human way (there are LOTS of horses out there noone wants, and some are just in horrible conditions, and something needs to be done anyway). Unfortunately it's not the case (I'd really recommend you to watch the videos on HOW horses killed there. I personally could stand watching only 20 secs or so).

However I'm strongly against people who use horse up to the last moment, crippled it, and then either try to find "nice free home" (for someone else to take care of vet bills and feed) or send it to the slaughter to make some bucks (and we have it on local forum ALL the time - argh...).

I have been around racetracks. I do my research... please don't tell me I'm making uneducated statements.
I have seen the good and the bad, and unfortunately the bad outweighs the good.
I would have no problem with racing if it was done properly, with the horses' health a priority over money.
As for your comment about the horses as pets thing ... no, they're not. I don't cuddle my horse on the couch, I make her work harder than my cat, but I treat her well.
Here's an eye-opening link...
