Horse abuse
We all know that there are so much people who doesn't care for their horses, and also lot of people train and treat their horses for some disciplines wich are not so lovely...but they think that they are doing great things.
So I have attached some of the videos and pictures of horse slaughter and abusing...
If you know about some cases, please share it with us if it's not a secret, cause this world need a change...

something about Tennessee walking horse, it's been long ago but situation isn't any better today.
That beautiful creatures, thoroughbreds, are in most cases fated on this...
On my shame this is in my country...

Thank you. These are fantastic examples.

These make me so shameful and angry.

It's sadly to live in this world of pain and frustrations.

I know, I know.
In the first video discussing TN Walking Horse cruelity, it showed several typical attitudes abusers have. There was one guy that spoke as if everything he did was justifiable to his horses because it made him happy. He said (not a direct quote) that if a man is having a good fun, time, then there is nothing wrong with the situation. He brushed the chains and 3 to 4 pound weights off his shoulders like it was nothing. No respect.. just as long as the man riding is happy. He probably doesn't even treat women equally. So barbaric. :roll:
I mean, I know that animals are not completely equal.. the way I treat my best human friend and my horse are different. (I'm better to my horse..) But I DO believe in giving animals respects and rights.. I think everyone should obey some sort of moral law amoungst animals.. let alone horses.
And the THREATS?! Rediculous. The people that stood strong in their beliefs and kept pursueing animal rights regardless of the many MANY threats - are my heros. :D :!:

I had to get into the Walking Horse industry for a while.. as the guy who owned the property i lived on for two years needed someone to green break the horses (not train, just get them saddle broke)

The thing I learned.. is money is everything. A horse that is clearly sored will pass the vet test with flying colors if the handler slips the vet a couple 100's.

Its disgusting.

This one guy I knew was a multi-million dollar member of the TWH industry. He had this one field on this property where he put the horses he "didnt like"

He would not feed them, and would only water them if he remembered to. Of course, they were for sale.. but all were 5,000 dollars.. no less. I saw one emaciated horse back there i fell in love with. He hated her. Threw rocks at her, kicked her, etc.. she was skin and bones, heaving, and covered in scars on her coronet bands and the hairs on the top of her tail were white from the brace. I offered to take her, and he said "5,000 no less" I said how emaciated she was, and that she wasnt worth more than 25 dollars, and he said "5,000 no less"

So i called the Humane Society... He paid them off.

When I called them back saying the horse was still there, they said "The horse had food and water, and his vet said she was under his care" Bull-crap. She wasnt. So i set out the next day to take photographs of her... but she was gone.

She died.


To them, Walking Horses are like Cars. You can let a car sit for a few months, then drive it like nothing was wrong. You cant do the same with horses.

I hope he rots x_x
