Wonderfully warm-hearted carriage horse people and compassionate riding horse trainers – true crusaders of kindness and caring – are swarming down like gentle locusts on harness racing’s Monticello Harness Racing track in Monticello, New York. They are offering hefty sums — some as absurdly high as $200.00 US — for those unfortunate horses who are performing too poorly to participate in actual races.
A few hundred dollars might not seem like a lot of money, but these buyers are on a bigger mission. While the people who sell their horses think they are buying peace of mind for themselves and a lifetime of care for their horse, they’re actually lining the bank accounts of con artists who simply sell the horses for meat whilst masquerading as do-gooders.
If these scammers had a slogan it would probably be: “Bamboozle ’em, buy ’em, and butcher ’em!
