I grew up on thoroughbred farms in Lexington, Kentucky.

I preferred to ride old thoroughbreds, we had a Dutch warm blood, a beautiful horse and great jumper. Haven't ridden a horse in 4 years now. I greatly miss it. I used to get home from school, saddle up and get lost on the back roads.

I had a friend who worked at Calumet Farms after school. He was killed by a blow to the head while holding a horse. He loved the horses to the end.

What is different now? Real question. Why can't you help these creatures out now?

Colby, the animal rights people led by "Wild Horse Anne" got Federal Laws passed that protects these animals. This is the Wild Horse and Burro Act. It was well intended but it has caused untold suffering for these animals. You can not kill an animal that is down and suffering under Federal Law.

This is awful stuff. I had no idea. The "do gooders" causing more messes and hurt and, in this case, misery.

My daughters Dutch warmblood is a lovely animal, called Zorro. He was bought from Holland as a 3 year old & imported to GB. He loves going out for rides, but his forte is Show Jumping. He loves it! Zorro is by a dressage stallion I believe is known in the states. His name is Future.

The horse industry really needs the slaughter houses. People get into situations where they can't care for horses. The horse ends up knee deep in mud and starving. The owner just puts the horse on ignore. They can't afford to feed the horse. If I had to make such hard choices the horse would go one way or another.

Things have got to be so expensive. Not to long ago for $25 a week you could feed a horse well enough for race training. Now just the vitamins are $25 a week.
