Hope they find homes for the horses - shame to put them down.

If Ferdinand, a Kentucky derby winner can be slaughtered, any horse can become food.

If you look into this subject it is a very, very sad thing; the entire process from shipping to eventual death is terrible. Unfortinately, the econony even effects this subject, as caring for a horse costs money.

I hope more people become aware of and involved in saving horses.

That's good. There's a lot of free horses around here right now. We get people stopping by our farm once a month wanting to give us their horse.

Some one just offered wife a free horse!
Thankfully our fence is taken down & barn full of my old tractors , car parts. Other odds & ends I can't part with..
She has been the horse owner route, boarding stable manager.
There are more things that can go wrong with them..............

It's really sad. As horrible as we find horse slaughter to be, it is sometimes better than the fate of unwanted horses now that the slaughterhouses are closed. I'm really glad they found homes.

Too bad people don't always feel the same sense of sadness and willingness to do something for their fellow man...homeless, orphaned, abused, etc.

Good to know they're all safe. A few years ago was part of a wreck with an overturned semi loaded with horses in a pig trailer. The horses were on their way to slaughter when it overturned. Bad wreck, some died but many others lived and were adopted. Great nowing many were saved.
