Kind of like fighting dogs, right?
I eat meat...and my animals that I raise to butcher live happy, healthy lives as stress free as possible. Just because they're livestock destined for my freezer doesn't mean that they should receive any less consideration. They are LIVING beings, and are deserving of my respect as such. In fact, I treat them as well as, if not better than, the way I treat the animals that are my pets.
If all you can see is dollar signs when you look at your young horse and will do whatever it takes to achieve those dollar signs, then maybe you should play the stock MARKET, and leave the living stock to those who can see beyond the instant gratification of getting to the pay window.
