    Just don't let the thought of slaughter bother you too much, it's really not a bad way to go, really. It's just a pop in the head and it's done in 99% of cases.

    And I would much rather see a horse that is unwanted to go to slaughter than be starved to death.

    They don't kill babies either. They are weaned and 3 - 4 months and kill buyers will let them go to others for cheap prices.

    That's a load of BS, KB. Slaughter houses are a good thing and should be reopened. What if they all closed and everyone who wanted to kill their horses starved, beat, or drowned them to death instead of a painless, quick injection, where their bodies could be used to help other animals?

    No. Mares have an instinct to raise foals. When they are old enough, the mares will push the foals away to be weaned. Horses do not "love" people or other horses. They form bonds based on instinct, protection, and the idea of safety in numbers.

    Wait, we're talking about slaughter, they don't inject horses in slaughter. Do they? Unless you're talking about something different.

    In that case you couldn't eat the meat. So no

    its not quick injection, its a shock gun or something that they shoot at their head to knock them up and then they drain them. Something to those lines-don't know the proper terminology.

    All though slaughter is tough to think about, and how much cruelty goes on because people who are a little messed up in the brain end up working there and don't treat the horses/cows/pigs and unnecessarily beat them. Its still should be legal in the us. Why? Because now the horses are being shipped to mexico or canada to be slaughter and are tightly packed in trailers and many end up being diseased or get infections, and even die in the trailers on the way there.

    I hate the thought of slaughtering any animals, but it needs to happen- I just wish the people who work at slaughter houses did it more humanely and had more regulations.

    Quick injection or quick shot, it's still quick and in most cases, not cruel.

    The thing they use is called a Captive Bolt gun, it's very efficient if used in the right hands and done right.

    And not to mention, the slaughter house conditions in Mexico aren't very good at all
