Especially being driven 15 to a stock trailer over 15 hours of time with no break, killing and injuring each other while they try to find room to breathe in the back.

Would you rather this, or a quick ride and it's over?

Exactly. But to the OP I was anti-slaughter for awhile, but my views of it have changed since I've been on this forum. I know you feel that slaughter is oh so horrible, cause let me guess. You've been watching that peta propaganda haven't you? You have to learn not to believe everything peta, and shark throw out there. They're very a very irrational group. I bet 10 bucks they'll try to give animals the right to vote next time. Cause animals just love to vote.

I believe slaughter should be allowed in the US. Around here the horses just go to Mexico anyway.
OP, if you are referring to PMU foals or Nurse mare foals, then yes I think foals produced for those industries suffer needlessly. But even in those cases sometimes slaughter is preferrable to the alternatives.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

What's the name of the group of extremists/terrorists that will go on private property and set someone else's beloved horse free?

Some slaughter houses use guns, and some use captive bolts.
