Of course you have because all you find are biased videos like the one you posted made by organizations like the Humane Society, PETA, etc.

I've seen more than one slaughter house in real life, and neither one was abusive or uncaring to the animals.

Scared, nervous, tensed up, and malnourished animals make for bad, spoiled meat, which is why a good majority of slaughter houses actually do care for the animals. Don't let some stupid video made by brainless "animal lovers" brain wash your mind.

Oy, a slaughter thread. Never seen one of these before :roll:

I used to be all OMGZZZ DONT SLAUGHTER THE PONIES!! then I got a brain and realized horse slaughter is one of the best things horses have going for them. Instead of starving to death, they get killed. I know it's hard for that to sound better but think, seriously THINK of the time it would take for a horse to starve to death, all the suffering involved...as opposed to being shot in the head and dying.

All the anti slaughter people go and look for the worst possible pictures/video clips and put together a video and then BAM think they are helping horses by advertising how everyone should be anti slaughter. You're NOT helping them! The only thing you are helping is a larger number of horses STARVING TO DEATH if slaughter didn't exsist.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

MOST slaughter is simply a bullet through the head, quick and painless. End of :)

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

I wouldn't ever dare go to a slaughter house in my life. I don't ever want to see it. I wish there was a way to reduce the population naturally and without slaughter, but... Not much you can really do. But I can assure the majority of slaughter houses make it as stress free as possible.

Tennessee hit the nail on the head. These videos are biased and youre not going to get the full understanding of what actually goes on during slaughter. Frankly I want slaughter houses back in the US where horses have to travel less and we can actually put some sort of regulation on it.

OP if you search past threads you will find extensive threads on this subject where people outline why we need horse slaughter.

And to add, how bout instead of worrying about slaughter, how about you go out and give your horse(s) a great big hug and thank god they won't have to go through that because they are with you. That's what I do all the time.

I agree.

Unless you can stop the NEED for slaughter (which there most certainly is) or stop idiots from breeding too much, there's nothing you can really do.

There is a way. Regulate breeding.

There will always be a demand for horse meat for consumption. But we have the ability to decrease the amount of slaughter going on.
