I've only sold 3 horses and it was tough every time. Its knowing that they will be in a good home that gets you through. I've been pretty particular who I sold them to.
When I bred dogs and had puppy's to sell once a year, I learned pretty quick not to name them or get attached in any way. I did the best I could in the short time I had them to make them sweet friendly puppies, then sent them on to their new life.

Yes I have to agree, a lot is how you are raised. I grew up in town, but every weekend we went to my uncles farm to help feed the chickens , pigs, sheep , bring in whatever crop was ready, potatoes, corn ect...

When it was time to "harvest" the chickens, my job was to catch them after their heads were....well you get the picture, and bring them to my aunt for the next process. You learn quickly that everything has a purpose and not to get too attached to it.

Raising chickens and turkeys for a while, like Vida, I did not name them. That would make them a "pet" and that was not their purpose.

My horses however are my pets. Fortunately they are what I want in a horse/partner, if they weren't, I agree that life is too short to put up with a bad match. My horses are for enjoyment only. But I can understand those that look at horses in a different way. As long as they are treated humanely and responsibly, buying and selling horses is another venue, just different from mine.

I think its just that farm kids are exposed to it on a daily basis. Town kids only see the meat in the grocery store and never have to "get over" the life that goes into that package of steaks or chicken. I remember being devastated when I figured out what happened to my first pet cow and I was only maybe 3-4 years old. Now I see a cow and I see steaks and roasts
Not saying a horse is just livestock, I don't see that at all. Mine are like the rest of my pets.
