Re: Re: Horse Savaging (LONG)

There are too many good horses out there to mess with the bad ones.  He
should be put down not sold.   An aquaintance of mine sold a mustang mare
thru the auction because she would kick.  She didnt just kick she meant to
"get" who or whatever she kicked at.  Mustangs are like mules, they hit what
they aim at.  The fact that the mare was a kicker was not divulged during
the sale.  The lady that sold her recieved a phone call 6 weeks later from
the man that had bought the mare.  The mare had killed his 11 yr old
daughter.  She had been kicked in the head.   Gut wrenching, but sadly true.
Dont sell him thru the auction, please just have him put down.    gesa
