I won't knock it as long as the animal is put to use. Horse hide makes some of the toughest and sturdiest I that I know of. Granted, I haven't tried all types of leather. I'd live to get my hands on some good horse hide though.
Don't worry our bunch of bureaucrats are the same sort of jelly spined mongrels as yours are,seems to be a genetic thing.
A few years ago there was a feral horse cull in one of the National Parks done by our so called professional govt. shooters out of 'choppers and there was a few horses that were wounded and the media got hold of it.
The **** storm that followed was incredible with most of the general public calling for the banning of horse shooting and why weren't the horses trapped and either sold or relocated instead of being shot and left to die horrible slow deaths etc,etc.
Now over here the Animal Libbers,anti gun mobs are dead against anybody owning guns much like you blokes are copping and they claim that only "professional" shooters should be used to control feral animals and not a bunch of potential mass murderers who drive around drunk and shooting everything in sight,yet they convieniently forget that it was the so called "professional" shooters who caused the unneccessary suffering of those horses,so go figure.
If it wasn't for the everyday hunter knocking over feral pigs,goats,cats,dogs,camels,deer,rabbits,hares,scr ub cattle and buffalo plus the Kangaroo industry keeping the 'roos under control there'd be no farming possible but according to the anti's our Kangaroo's are in danger of being extinct from being almost shot out but this is so far from the truth that it's laughable as a lot of studies done on the 'roo's shows that since white man has been here the 'roo populations have increased because of farming and dams being put in so there's more food and more reliable water supplies around so they breed like fly's,so don't believe anything that the Animal Libbers tell you about us slaughtering our national emblem for the fun of it as it also gets used for pet meat and human consumption as well,regards
