I take it you called and asked if they were going to slaughter or is that a uneducated guess? Why does everything come to slaughter, that is how people make it look bad.
I think slaughter makes the most sense in this situation. Had it been a tragedy, there wouldn't be 5 foals together. And they stated the mares were bought without the goals. Who else buys 5 mares and discards the foals at 1 1/2 months old? Had it been a private auction buyer, they wouldn't have left the foals.
All the pieces fit that the mares were purchased and the foals were too small to be of weight worth. Posted via Mobile Device
