I must say, where I live, in the entire country, there are a maximum of 3 slaughter houses for horses, and they are almost never used, which I think is a wonderful thing.
However, I am very much for it. While I would rather that every horse on this planet lives out their days in a lush meadow with lots of love, I know that it simply isn't a reality. I would much rather these horses who, to put it bluntly, "have no use anymore" were killed quickly and without suffering, than to waste away in an abandoned stall until they die. When they are slaughtered, their bodies can be used for many things, which is very helpful.
Conditions in most slaughterhouses are not what people think. The horses in most of them are actually very well cared for until it's their time, and I'm sure that the horses themselves would rather it be quick and painless like it is in a slaughterhouse, where I believe the workers do their best to keep the animal from suffering.
Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)
