Wow, that is sad...I didnt realize there was such problems these days, but now that you mention it, I guess I shouldnt be shocked...times sure are tough no matter where you look...

Where do you live ? If diesel wasn't so high I would drive up there and bring back an 18 wheeler back. I pay 65 for good coastal hay and 55 for oat hay and they are 6x6 round bales

Yes they are. Some people are just to lazy to take them to a sale yard and sell them. I know a couple of kill buyers that take the horses down to Mexico for slaughter. Because for the longest time they have shut down all the kill houses in the U.S. but they past a law about a year ago to open them back up.

Yes I know but, that's a saying when I was in the army. The joke is you call an officer sir cause he does not work . You call a NCO by rank cause he works every day with his troops.

A Cannery is being built near Cheyenne, Wyoming. Yes .it is difficult but letting animals die of starvation in the High Desert eating dried tree stumps is not a something you want to watch. There was a time when a 30-06 could end the misery.

I know I have had to put down a couple of horses because they where so sick from starvation that they would have never made the trailer ride to my house.
