    Like I said, if possible. I know we don't live in a perfect world and awful things sometimes have to happen. I was just offended that so many people jumped to murder so quickly, especially when talking theoretically about options.
    I think you were being a little dramatic, especially considering we are talking theoretically here.

    Nobody here is against retraining problem horses. Just read the training section. You will find all sorts of problems. I am all for it. However, this horse deliberately aimed at and kicked a person in the head. For me and others, that makes him dangerous and not worth any further risk. I wouldn't waste my money on a trainer.

    For me, it'd be the same deal if it were my dog that bit you in the face. I'd kill him. I love my dogs, but that would be crossing the line.

    I won't say this is a case of you feeling morally superior, but I will say you are looking emotionally for teh poor ruined pony and none for the poor sap they pawn this horse off on who gets put in a wheelchair! ! The horse got screwed. .. sold honestly he is worth spit in this economy. He will suffer for it, ultimately. Better at this point to limit that damage to him and not another innocent.

    That kick was intentional.

    For the record, I have rescues and just picked up a horse from the camelot auction last week. I am pro slaughter and logical enough to know that while horses continue to suffer for human stupidity. ...and dogs, cats etc.... we should save the good ones that we can, not the dregs, their fsult or not.


    Sorry for punctuation etc, tablets suck.

This horse had a million chances to shape up but never did. The owners of the horse only enabled its behavior. This horse should've been put in the ground in the first place instead of nearly taking the lives of 3 people. Now tell me to MY MAIMED FACE that not putting this horse down was the logical choice.
    I don't believe it would have been a logical FIRST choice, at the point it got to though I can definitely see your side. I didn't know the horse so I couldn't say for myself but I can see in cases like this how a horse could be put down.

    I won't lie, I respect, honor and love most animals more than people. However it should not take a near death or three for a horse to be judged "not right" and put out of its misery. IMO, of course.

    I am happy that you picked up a camelot horse. They deserve homes. I am not going to repeatedly beat you with my beliefs.

    So, Bijou, where do you draw the line? Why is it acceptable to put down one dangerous animal but not the other?

    Thanks.


    Muppet, that photo isn't as near as bad as I thought it would be.

    Because one's just evil and the other was ruined by an idiot. Right? That's what I'm getting at least.
