Horse people are forced to pay their dues to support slaughtering horses and eating horse meat and many horse council members don't even know that's what is happening. It's nowhere in fine print or any print when you join or renew a membership. Would you pay your dog association dues if they served up pooch on your dinner plate? Some people view their horses as family and beloved pets. I for one.
I have no words.
I if lived in some places I see people post pics from on here - I would chose not to have a horse, as he would not be in a round pen all his life, never see grass. Others are ok with this, it's not for me.
I believe my horse should be out in at least 2 acres. If my horse is in prolonged pain, can't be turned out, he would meet a bullet.
So from that, I don't agree with people out west stalling their horses all the time, so where am I at? Are they wrong, or just different? I think different. Hear me out.
If it were my horse, I choose a vet coming out, and putting him to sleep. However my world is not all the world, I am a foster parent, and I'd like to be unemployed. It costs money to have a horse in a back pasture that's never seen and it takes a year for them to die painfully, of starvation.
There are people like that out there. I am a foster parent of humans, in a good world I would not be needed - so for animals it's never going to happen. So lets have a way of putting those animals to sleep.
