Re: Horse slaughter

<< Personally, I wouldn't just sit and wait for "the tide to turn".  Usually
 you know well in advance if you are going to be in a situation where a
 couple hundred bucks "is a big deal".   So if you're heading in the
 direction where you will be faced with a "choice that hurts", like whether
 to feed your children or feed your horse, and you only wait for the "tide
 to turn", then you have no business with either.  The couple hundred bucks
 will keep you going for another week or so, and then what? >>

It is easy to judge when you don't walk in their shoes.  The best-laid plans 
can go astray, and life can change from reasonable comfort to devastation 
almost overnight.  I've seen it happen too many times to second-guess people. 
 Yes, sometimes there is an element of poor planning in disaster, but if the 
only people who could own horses or have kids are those that have a couple of 
years' safety net in the bank, it would be a pretty restrictive world.
