Re: Re: Re: RE: Re: Horse slaughter

I guess everything is relative----when my daughter's horse died way far from
home at a vet husband drove 600 miles---loaded the horse on the
flat bed---packed the body with ice...tied it up with a tarp...and brought
the horse home to be buried in the front pasture.
     I myself can't imagine being so destitute that I had to sell my best
buddy at the auction...I'd give up a whole lot before I'd ever do that.
