Preach it, sistah! That
is what infuriates me about hoarders (and bad owners in general). They spew all day long about how much they love their animals when every animal on the property is sick and emaciated and living in filth. THAT IS NOT LOVE.
It's real easy to say you love something. It's another thing entirely to actually show
it and do something about it. Words are nothing. Love = plenty of food, water, shelter, vet and farrier care. Ignorance does not excuse you. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and I don't care if you starved your horse on purpose or not. The animal didn't suffer any less just because you "didn't mean to".
