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.
