Also NicoleB - how can a horse develop mange in two weeks if it was tied alone in a barn?
I'd also like to know why, if she was aware how HORRIBLY her horse was being treated the first week, she didn't yank him out of there immediately?
If my horse were being mistreated and I knew it, there's no way he'd stay there another DAY, much less another week.
I've known many Amish and Mennonites in my time. They have lovely, well mannered, well cared for horses, but they're not
pets. They are these peoples' tractors, trucks, and cars. It would make no
sense for them to abuse, neglect, or mistreat their animals.
Does abuse happen? I'm certain it does, because I'm sure the Amish have nutters and abusers in their ranks, JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE POPULATION. But to tar and feather a whole group for one small segment is wrong and hateful.
