Millions of unwanted cats and dogs are slaughtered every year, and it's too bad in this country that we don't eat them. In asian countries they cook em up asap! And hardly have a population problem. I hear the "I wish all horses could live out their days in green pastures". But accidents happen, breedings go wrong, some animals are just unfit to become sound sane "friends" for life. There has to be a solution, killing them and eating them, salvaging them for their parts, and sparing them from suffering by slaughtering them is the answer. The cold hard fact is that horses are livestock. I love mine to death but it irritates me to no end that I won't be able to profit off of their death when I have dumped thousands into their care and well being. That money goes back into the pot to take better care of my next horse, making sure they live LONG happy lives.
20 years ago my first horse cost $505. 5 dollars more than the meat buyer was willing to pay. She was the most incredible grade horse that ever lived, the man who ran her through the sale barn knew what he was doing when he bred her parents and I'm glad he got his monies worth. Had I not been there, she would have been dog food. But dogs gotta eat too.
