Re: [RC] [RC] Spanish Mustangs/freedoms - Karen Sullivan

Perhaps the answer is to greatly stiffen laws and  increase penalities
and fines on those neglecting animals...would maybe be a deterrent to
those hoarding or indiscriminately breeding horses or other animals?
We have had at least 2 very large breeders in my county ( Arabs and
gaited horses) finally shut down (the Arab breeder had no idea of
which stallions were breeding which mares; all were stunted and
starved). The gaited horse breeder still managed to hide some
horses...but why do these horses have to endure extreme starvation or
die, for the situation to be rectified?

I have to say that I like the **concept** of licensing or certification.
What I don't like is that any such program is easily manipulated.   I think
most of us have seen or heard of situations that would have been avoided if
a person had been required to show competence.  BYB's is only one part of
that.  Animal abuse / neglect cases due to ignorance or incompetence spring
to mind.

The problem is -- where do you draw the line, and who gets to draw it?
