this for all the people who are for horse slaughter. how would you like to be shoot until you are dead. how would that feel? horses have been there for us. what did george washington ride in battles, not cows! i might be young and in my teens but horses are like people. do you know what they do with pregnent mares? they cut out there babies and throw them in the trash. how would you like your baby thrown away? think about it. horses need to be free! leave them alone!!!

There has been very little talk about expanding the amount of adoption facilities available for unwanted horses. Where are all these unwanted animals to go. Based on what I know, the horse adoption agencies are already packed.

It doesn't surprise me that certain people such as yourself are actually for horse slaughter. You're presented 1/10 of the facts. We live in a country that gives horrible criminals a slap on the wrist and let people out to commit more horrible crimes, why would most of us actually CARE about animals? We don't even care about each other most of the time, just watch the news.

You are also ignorant to the issues of illegal immigrants and apparently believe we should just let everyone in (I know people that have come here and WORKED hard to get legal status on this country and even they don't support people just coming into this country just because they feel like it).

If people were to stop being greedy (I know, hell would freeze over before THAT happened) and not over breed animals of all kinds we wouldn't have horse slaughter which fuels the industry (it also allows people to profit for their carelessness), nor would we have thousands of dogs and cats euthanized every day at animal shelters. You probably haven't done your research either and don't realize that horse slaughter promotes horse theft. Many horses that are slaughtered were stolen.

If you want to know the truth, we have way too many people (yes, us over important humans) in the world but nobody will ever say that, we just give people money (welfare, etc.) so people can continue to have even more children they can't afford. Sorry, you can say what you want but I am in favor of saving innocent animals over condoning and paying for human stupidity and OUR over population.

please do us all a favor and permanently relocate to europe ASAP.

If Bo Derek & Willie Nelson would turn their attention toward making it illegal to race horses until they are four or five years old, the need to SLAUGHTER horses would be greatly diminished.

What we need is HUMANE slaughter. Check out Temple Grandin's website:

you bitch and complain about all people who own horses and yet you do nothing.Your just some jackass with to much time on his hands who needs to feel a little bigger about himself so he attacks whoever he can.What willie and bo are doing is the greatest thing in their lives.They are standing up for their beliefs and seeing through with them.No horses are not meant for food.We have enough ways to give ourselves nutrients that we need don't need to slaughter innocent creatures.And trust me there are more cats and dogs that are homeless.And a lot of the horses from riding stables and racing farms can find homes.Through the owner or a adoption place.You seem more the type that likes horse meat and not the horse

'Where in this world can a man find nobility without pride,
friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity.
Here,where grace is served with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined.
He serves without servility, he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
England's past has been borne on his back.
All our history is in his industry.
We are his heirs, he our inheritance.'
-Ronald Duncan-

I know it says England, but it sums up the respect the horse deserves, and Anna Sewell would be shocked to see how it continues. Keep up the good fight! Here in England we wouldn't dream of eating them, so please don't lump us in with the Europeans!
