I must say I agree that it is a scare tactic! I know with the economy a lot of people are tossing away of good horses.
I don't want to start a war but nor do I agree or disagree, but we have to remember horses are livestock just like a cow or pig. If someone was unable to care for a horse and could not find it a home I wouldn't disagree about it going to auction. Yes, it may be sold to a kill buyer and it may not be. (I would never do this to my horse or any horse but it is reality!)
I would certainly rather it go to slaughter, hoping it's not the horrible ones like in Mexico and stuff then the see her posted on there starving and like someone rescue her when she is nothing but bones!
Horses are like dog and cats in a sense, too many unwanted ones and not enough homes for them...it is very sad but stuff happens.
