The hypocrisy and arrogance shown by the rabid anti horse slaughter people are staggering. I noticed the OP completely ignored the question about whether or not he consumes meat. I'll lay odds he does, along with wearing and using leather on occasion. How is it okay to kill other animals for food, clothing and tools, but not horses? They're as much livestock as cattle.
OP, I don't know why you thought coming on this forum and proclaiming how anti horse slaughter you are would earn you laurels and kudos. The majority of horse owners are intelligent, rational adults who understand that not every horse is wanted, and instead of slobbing hyperbole and horror over the slaughter fate of these animals, they understand that this is a solution. Not a perfect one to be sure, but one no more horrific than what myriads of other animals go through on a daily basis.
You wanted people to agree with you, which is why you specifically posted the 'mean' e-mail. Since we didn't fall all over ourselves with shock and outrage over it, you've decided to take your ball and go home. I suggest you don't try the same thing again, unless you specifically go to an anti horse slaughter site. Otherwise, you'll find that the majority of horse foruns are filled with the same type of people you found here. We know better than city people the plight of the horse in modern society, but we're also pragmatic, level headed, and understand that what others do LEGALLY with their own animals is their business, not ours.
If you don't want your horse going to slaughter, don't send it there. However, you don't get to dictate to others what they can or cannot do with theirs, as long as it falls within legal parameters.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
