We can only hope there are more than 480 buyers at this massive horse auction in Billings, Montana on the Memorial Day long weekend in the U.S. However, what this demonstrates is the illogical mindset of many Quarter Horse breeders, brought on by the AQHA’s pro-breeding strategy and their pro-slaughter, disposable horse stance.
In this long standing soft economy, where the entire horse community is aware of the effect it’s had on horse prices and availability of buyers, “irresponsible” seems to be the operative word for auctions of this magnitude.
How many of these horses will end up at the Bouvry Exports Shelby Montana feedlot and then their horse slaughter plant inFort MacLeod,Alberta? Perhaps not directly through this sale, but perhaps through the next sale, or the one after that.
Common sense tells us that with these many horses, sellers will be lucky to recoup their investments, so we have to ask – why do people continue to breed and expect to make money from the lives of horses?”
Like good horses? We do too!
