Breeder takes starved T-bred home in tears

Silver and Smoke was seized by the Miami-Dade Police Department in early August, and turned over to the South Florida SPCA. When the filly’s breeder found out about the situation, she raced to the SPCA to take the horse back.

When the broodmare Quiddich, whose name was derived from the Harry Potter books, delivered a delicate gray filly, her breeder Danzel Brendemuehl knew that life wouldn’t necessarily be a fairy tale for the little foal she named Silver and Smoke.

    While I applaud the breeder for being so careful about having horses returned, she even admitted herself that this beautiful animal could have a hard life ahead so I have to question why would she breed horses for the racing industry??? Time and time again, we have read about race horses ending up in kill pens. With the great number of horses being slaughtered every year, maybe breeders should make a compassionate decision and not breed every single year…why not stop breeding for 3-5 years and maybe, just maybe, there won’t be such a glut of unwanted horses.

      I agree with you Heather.

    2. Agreed! She (breeder) is very lucky not only to have seen this horse on fb, but that she is very much ALIVE!!! With the slaughtering for black market in the Miami-Dade area of Florida…horses being stolen etc.
      It does not matter what you attach to a registration paper…the fate of that horse is in the hands of whomever owns them & not all people are on the same page as us!
      Yes, just stop the breeding unless you keep them yourself or keep a % of ownership possibly?
