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

There is a major point that is being missed by some people in this thread.

It is generally *not* the beloved companion that is shipped to slaughter.

The horses that need the slaughter industry are the ones that have been, at
best, neglected.  People that won't pay for feed/hay, routine vet care (much
less, specialized vet care), or even make the effort to see that they have
water and shelter are *not* going to *pay* to get rid of the horse.  Some of
these are rescued, for the rest of them, at best, they will die on their
own, at worst, they may receive minimal care, just enough to keep them
