so, if you go to phantom, you will find out that horses are being slaughtered. something can be done about this. email your state representative and tell them that the slaughtering of the wild horses out west should continue no longer.they're bound to understand how we horse lovers feel. :lol:

Are you talking about BLM horses? Their not slaughtered the excess are standing in feed lots costing tax payers $1000's each year. I love horses but I'd rather see those ones sold to the highest bidder and the money used to support the wild herds.

I agree with county.

That's their issue, actually. The BLM mustangs are being sold for $125 each... pretty low if you ask me. The only problem is, not many people want a wild horse when they could have a tame one and even fewer people have the know how to work with a wild horse. Trust me, the BLM is not just holding these horses for kicks and giggles so they can waste tax money. They really have no other option.

Actually they do have other options legally but choose not to do them. They can sell them to slaughter or kill them.
