If that's what you believe, then why are you posting on the thread?

If you're anti horse slaughter, then you need to have a solution for all the unwanted horses. One that's not predicated on people 'being responsible', or some pie in the sky ideal that there are homes for every horse, because the reality is there aren't. Or is it just easier to shriek, wail, and rend your garments about the solution we DO have as cruel and inhumane, instead of working toward something that will at least be a compromise that everyone can deal with?

Until the antis and pros can work together without expecting someone other than themselves to do the dirty work, slaughter will remain the only viable option for unwanted horses.

Since many horses live to be 30 years old plus with good care, how do YOU propose to make over a million horses disappear in 3 or 4 years. Think how many it will be in 10 years.

Ranchers are slaughtering cattle they intended to save for breeding because they cannot afford to find feed for them. The cattle herd in the US is smaller than it has been since they started keeping records. Within 2-3 years, beef will be double in price or more. Where do think the feed will come from for millions of 'useless horses'.

What would YOU do with them all today?
Hmm, that just gave me an idea...could horsemeat soon become "The New Beef"?

Horse meat is consumed in other countries all the time.

The conversation was posted in a discussion forum. If no one discussed anything there would be no need for the horse forum.

I don't that anyone is beating a dead horse.
But it would appear that the OP has taken his/her ball and gone home because people don't agree with them.

^^^^^^^^^ And personally it bothers me when people do this! They come on here to start a conversation and when it does not go their way they pick up and leave!!! Gah! There are two other threads with horses that need vet care and can't get a reply there either! I wish they would just finish what they started. Good or bad! We are here trying to help or discuss! That is what a forum is for!

I don't get it either. I have a wide range of friends, with differing opinions on all sorts of issues. My world would be rather small, and boring if I only sought out those who agreed with me.

Exactly. (I think 1941 was the last time cattle numbers were this low)

You very rarely hear of starved, neglected cows.

Your right there needs to be a good meduim. I don't have all the answers though and I wish I did. I ment that this is beating a dead horse on both ends we can disagree to agree until we are blue in the face but it doesnt make things change.
