I've seen a horse dying because of bleeding. She was injured and an important vessel in the hoof area was sectioned. The mare died after many hours but the bleeding was not so severe as it is when you are sectioning the neck artery. I know that they are also sectioning something there to make the bleeding slower and to impede the horse to pass down when a certain amount of blood is drained. They do this in order to drain as much blood as needed.
Sure it's not something very traumatic, there are horrible ways of dying like being left to starve or being beaten up until death. But I really think that they should use a more humane method to do this.
I'm really amazed that this is not so unusual as I thought it will be. But I still hope that this practice will change and that they will put their animals down in a more humane way.
Thank you all for your responses.
