You're welcome. Glad to hear you saved your horse from ending up on someone's plate or in someone's dog's food.... The more horses saved the better, until the methods are humane!

The USTA ran an article in hoof beats, a few years ago, about standardbreds that go to slaughter. They went to an auction and watched all these thoroughbreds and quarter horses and whatever else get run through the ring. The auction closed and not a single standardbred had run through the auction, even though there was a pen full of them in the back. The writer watched as all the new owners fought with these new horses to get them into the trailer. Meanwhile, the truck bound for slaughter pulled up and all the standardbreds just walked onto the trailer like it was any old day at the races. I don't remember the name of the article but if you get in touch with someone at hoofbeats they might be able to help you.

For the time being, I've decided to hold off on making the documentary until I can get a handle on my resources. I'd also like to see if I can find Nelly's previous owners (not the ones who sent her to slaughter) just to have a little more information on her background and such. This will give me more training time so that there's more on the subject of retraining. In the mean time, I've decided to stick with posting update videos of her every month. I've already made a short doc video of her and have just posted a December update.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
