Sad story
 
Hi I am Jack the colt foal! I am 4 months old! I love to run and play with my other foal friends and my mother. One day the people took me away from my mother, she fought them but wasnt strong enough. They took me to this place that smelt horried of death. I was at the slaughter house.... The next I was gone. They killed me.
Please stop the insanity of slaughter houses!!!

Or we could stop the insanity of over breeding, maybe?

That would be really sad, except horses dont have the same emotions as a little girl.

Not all people, some people keep the babies. It's the people who are like ohh I want a foal and breed their horse then don't have the finance to keep it, so they sale it and that's when it can end up in a bad situation like in the kill pen. Or the racing industry, who breed and breed and breed trying to get a good horse and if the horse isn't fit, it's either A. put up for adoption or B. Sent to slaughter.

You know this for a fact, HOW? I've never heard of anyone who would take a newborn away from its mother and sell it to slaughter. There isn't any meat on a newborn, and it'd die without nursing in any case.

4 months old is a weanling, not a still nursing foal in most cases. Which means their mothers don't see them as their babies anymore, just another horse.

Most of the horses that go to slaughter are adults. Young, healthy, and in good weight. Like any other meat, horses are bought by the pound. The kill buyers, contrary to popular belief, don't take the old, sick, emaciated, or youngsters. They're in the business to make a profit, just like any other job.

I hope with your bleeding heart sentiments you don't eat meat or use/wear leather. After all, a baby calf is just as precious to its mother as a foal is to its dam, and veal is very much in demand in this and other countries.
