    This makes me want to puke. Their ‘mission’! What a bunch of bull shit! Of course they’re in favor of murdering and butchering horses. Horses they abused, and who can’t perform their stupid tricks anymore. So what do they do? Kill, and and then throw them in the nearest ditch. Anyone who uses a horse for racing, breeding, jumping, whatever, needs to keep their greedy, mouths shut. And I suppose horses who have to jump aren’t filled with drugs either? So lets make them jump until they’re crippled. Abuse them, slaughter them, and sell their contaminated meat to unsuspecting children in other countries. Lets give children cancer because we want a fresh victim who can jump higher. Pathetic!

    Does anyone know what is going to happen to the horses from the show “Luck” that was just cancelled?. They said that all the horses were out of a job and usually that only means slaughter.

  4. No surprise to me….there are only some many jumps in a pair of legs!
