sorry about off topic post
- Has anyone read the article in the LA times about horses
in the east, like North Carolina, and Florida.
The writter is stating that there is a drought , in those states
and apparently alot of the owners of some of these horses
cant afford to feed them, and they are finding them starved and worse
They say they are exporting hay from Canada to feed them.
last time i was in the midwest hay went about 3 bucks a bale..
( but thats not the east or south)
Now it also talks about slaughter, and there seems to be 2 thoughts on
it. It discusses that the animals are taken to mexico for
guesome kills. I have heard that there is no regulations in export to
mexico, and that they are trying to pass laws for horse protection,
i also suspect that they are attempting to get thoughts on re-opening
the slaughter laws. They also give a site that is supposedly giving
away horses because people cant afford them, which is nothing new
some times people go throught rough times and have to thin the herd
and alot of the ones for sale for 1$ want you to call it
and they will quote you a real price...
somethings fishy..with this article....
Its very controversial, the article, and the slaughter laws..
Does anyone know anything about this?
