The CHDC received the following email yesterday…..
I just wanted to pass along a message I just recieved from a good friend. I hate to think of perfectly good horses going to the plant only because the owner can’t keep them…seems so wrong.
Apparently there are a large group of horses located in Chase BC that need to be sold or re-homed before Monday (like before July 26th). That is the day they will all be shipped to a killing plant.
There are (according to my sources) a ton of beautiful young thoroughbreds 2 – 5 years old as well as brood mares. It sounds as though the breeding in general is very good, many by the Stallion Diamond Sword.
Upwards of 50 horses…
The owner has apprently run into some issues and is forced to disperse or ship the animals by this Monday, July 26th.
The horses are apparently available at meat price…and if not sold will become just that.
