I don't really see anything wrong with what she's wearing . . . She probably took off her boots and put on barn sneakers. I look like that all the time LOL.

As much as that's a trashy ad - I'm happy the message is getting out there - it's absolutely the truth. Watch the auctions you'll see tons of young, broken down Amish horses falling out to kill-buyers all the time. They're also well known for their atrocious puppy mills.
I'm not opposed to people using animals as livestock or work animals - that's a lifestyle choice and their own decision to make. But the laws about animal cruelty need to be followed by everyone in this country.
They also need to learn to preserve their 'machines' rather than using them up and throwing them out. Many of their horses show up to auctions with scars and wounds from ill-fitted harnesses that they've worn for far too long - and they're all far to young to be thrown out. It's because they're see as easily renewable, they can breed as many as they like and brake them out. Often broke in the cruelest of fashions, we have a Perch/Standardbred cross who's tongue has a large scar/lump in it from being tied by her tongue - a common practice by the Amish - similar to a tongue twitch but actually tying. The horse can't wear a bit comfortably at all - luckily after a great deal of rehab she'll go well in bitless options.
Multiple city carriage horses were previously Amish horses, people are so appalled by the idea of horses working in the city, but often they're treated far better than the Amish - treated like individuals, given proper medical care and fair diets.

Look it up, there's more out there about it and I hope this becomes more public - but I hope it's done in a more reasonable way, this was a little childish.

If the ad expires or gets deleted for people reading this later here's what it said:
"We live in the middle of a large Amish community and I just wanted to let people know, that contrary to popular belief the Amish are the cruelest people to their animals. Never, ever give your dog, horse or anything to the Amish. Out Amish neighbor has been given several nice dogs, all of which he shoots after a few months when he finds another dog. People give their horses to the Amish too all the time, because 'they are so good to their animals.' Baloney, the horses are used, abused and then sold to the killers if they manage to survive that long. Don't be fooled, like the old saying goes 'there are three things you never want to be, an Amishman's wife, horse or dog.'"

WOW! I never knew that! I was under the impression that they treated all of their animals with respect and kindness, etc. Huh I think I'm going to look it up more.

It's funny how many people seem to think that -.-' Ya, look it up, don't just take my word for it. They're worse than just tools, they're tools without value enough to maintain in that society (often, I'm sure there are exceptions).

When something is that easy to just make more of - put two together, wait 11 months. They don't mind so much using them up fast.

While I agree with this about SOME Amish people, most take very good care of their horses, although they still treat them like "machines". I look at it like this; most people take good care of their cars so they don't break down, while others couldn't care less, buy it cheaply, and then sell/crush it when it gives out.

The puppy mills, however . . . Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. I have a puppy mill dog (although we did not know it at the time, we bought her from a "breeder" who was actually a dealer), and she is wonderful, but has some issues. Especially with men.
My dog rescue also gets puppy mill breeder dogs all the time, and they are such poor things. A basset hound that we thought had to be at least eight turned out to be only four! But she had had SO many litters she looked far older. Now she is a therapy dog and the kindest creature on the planet

Me too...I've also mucked out in heels and office trousers, when I've had to.

I like her socks, they rock

I've read many debates on the Amish. From my personal experience, I own two horses that were sent to auction by the Amish and were bought by the kill buyer. Both are head shy to the extreme, and one was almost sent to the plant, because she was lame on her front hoof. After examination by a vet, and having her shoes and pads removed by a skilled farrier, it was determined that her shoes and pads, held on by barn nails, had been on at least a couple of years, more than likely 3 or more. She is only 6.

That was off topic, so here, another dumb horse ad:

GOOD BABY TO TRAIN FOR THE WINTER - Kingston Livestock For Sale - Kijiji Kingston

"THIS COLT IS REAL CALM AND EASY TO HANDLE , LIKE TO BE WITH PEOPLE . WILL MAKE A GOOD LOOKER WHEN HE IS FULLY GROWN UP.
HE IS 1/2 BELGIAN, 1/4 PERCHERON & 1/4 THOROUGHBRED, GOING TO BE BIG, GOT THE COLOR OF THE GOLDEN BELGIAN AND THE BLACK TAIL & MAIN OF THE THOROUGHBRED , SMART HORSE WOULD LIKE 800 FOR HIM OR BO , HAVE TO GO TO A GOOD HOME AND WILL COME DOWN IN PRICE . CAN SEE HIM ANY TIME .
PICS WERE DONE WHEN IT WAS RAINING OUT "

1) I believe we call that colour "bay" 2) The all caps makes my eyes hurt 2)It has no age 3)You can buy a horse that is at least green broke for $1000 around here 3)if you look at the pics, not only are they done when it's raining (which is obvious) but they're taken at night; way to put effort into making him look the best he can!
