Its no wonder the world is in such a sad sad shape. Once again, just my wacko theory All your harsh words do not phase me.. sometimes the truth hurts. And , yes, I have more petitions to sign. Headed out to our local horse rescue to volunteer some help. We have a truly wonderful group of people helping those 'unwanted' horses. I think some of you posting here are just getting your jollies
to get a rise out of me. What a boring life you must lead. see ya :wave: or on second thought---- not so much !
Even horse rescues know their limits that they cannot take any more horses in and it's not uncommon that a horse rescue can reject an unwanted horse when the place is full. What you do with dangerous horses? Even a stallion or a gelding that is used in breeding, is less ideal for a pet. Several horse rescues have shut down due to lack of money for hay and vet bills.

Good for you. :clap: I mean that. I hope your rescue works. You have a good heart and I'd like to see that be rewarded.
Out here rescues are a slow and agonizing death for horses. They start as well intentioned and well run rescues but when the reality sets in and the money runs out the horses are the ones that pay. A few rescues here have wound up sending the horses to slaughter after feeding them for a year or two and the end result is that the owner goes bankrupt over horses that were going to die anyway. A bunch of them have been closed down by the county for animal neglect and alot of those horses wind up being euthenized. The horses that are salvageable go to other rescues and wait until the money runs out there. :frowns:

FWIW, I've never sent a horse to slaughter. The two that I've had that were bad*** enough that I got tired of them made it into bucking strings. The mediocre horses get sold to people who don't need much horse and the good ones stay until they're uncomfortable and then there's a decisive ending. Two of my best are giving rides to disabled kids for a living... it works out well since they had a :dunce: sitting on them for the first half of their life... They think that's how it's suposed to work.

:heart: no one really cares who or what you eat. If it has a face , more power to you . :clap: On a more positive note, we were able to adopt out 2 very nice horses yesterday to young 4-H youngsters.
These 2 are 15 and 17 year old semi retired show horses that the owner fell upon hard times and did not want to sell to just anyone .They were at the rescue for just a few weeks. These kids will love and take good care of these trustworthy steeds. So sad to think that they could have ended up on a plate or in a can of dog food. It did my spirit good to see the smiles on the kids faces as they rode Shelby and Montana. As long as there are decent , loving homes for our equine COMPANIONS , I will continue to do my part. :heart: :heart: :heart: So you cattle drovers can slam me, make fun of me, call me names, belittle me, sell your horses to the killers, ect. I am only too happy to stake out my little piece of heaven with my rescues, volunteer time and money to our local ( which is doing well, has lots of help and $ ) and to thank God that I have a tender heart and a nurturing desire. Horses make me happy---- cheerio! :tiphat:

Geez holly,
get a grip. No one here said that all horses had to go to slaughter. Those two horse had something that many of the unwanted horses do not have. An education and a history of being shown. Horse like that are not hard to place at all.
What about the horses that owners did not bother to have trained or are unsafe to ride or be around PERIOD.
Those horses are the ones that are neglected and starving because no one wants them. Where are they to go?

Kudos that the two horses found a home. There are people waiting for horses like that. I hope that they work out for the youth.

Send a horse to a slaughter plant.

Let a horse starve to death over the course of a year or 2.

For some horses thats the only 2 choices around, and without the first one on the table it's not pretty. You can call a horse what you want but, they are livestock. Bottom line the slaughter house is a lot more humane way out 90% of the time. There are not enough people in this world willing to rescue all the horses that need it.


Holly

I see you conveniently did not answer the question.

If I missed your answer I apologize.

If I did not - then how about it?

Wasting your time - an admitted veggie that kills cows - only one way - hers - or the highway.

Your mind is open - hers is not.

As much as I may disagree with someone, I would never wish harm or death to anyone. Your remark shows exactly what type of person you are. You certainly have a lot of hate in your heart.

Bez, you are right. She can not have a constructive discussion. Too bad she didn't delete her account like she said she was.
People like her give legitimate horse rescues a bad name.

I wonder how many starving children, and poor people you could help if you spent less time help horses, and started caring about people?
You got a strong view and blind faith, but kind of in the wrong direction...like most animal wackos.

You exhibit a mean streak in you and now you run after throwing some pretty vile insults.

You have left questions blatantly ignored - which only weakens your case and shows your true colours.

In the end it is too bad because people here are actually pretty good folks overall.

You on the other hand are showing that you might not be.

I feel sorry for you and in fact - while others may not - I feel ashamed for you.

This is of course not unrecoverable yet - you could re-establish your credibility if you were open and honest and did not wish death to others.

A simple apology for the insults and honest answers to questions you have ignored - plus the reasonable explanation that you were having a bad day, would probably bring forgiveness from some - if not most - people you really WOULD like to have for neighbours.

People here that despite having argued with myself - I know would show up at my door if they were my neighbours - ready to help if I needed it. I think you know that as well - but perhaps are too self centred to admit.

I wish you a long life, health, wealth and happiness.

Do not hurt your finger when you hit that delet button - but I KNOW you will be back to read! LOL

All those who leave still come back to read anonymously - and you will be no different!

If you would like a new name so you can come back here and start over might I suggest "Carnivore"? It would certainly allow you to remain anonymous and remove you from your past. And everyone deserves a fair and fresh start - including you.

Stay safe my dear Holly

Big hug

Bez
