I saw this post by John W Strobel III on our causes page yesterday. I have been doing this a long time and do not think I have EVER seen something so touching, honest & to the point to get across to any reader (horse lover or not) why we should NOT be slaughtering our horses.
Thank you John for sharing this on our Stop Horse Slaughter in the USA cause!
"Imagine what it would be like if you spent your whole life working, carrying heavy loads, being a friend whose trust in you was without limits and one day you grow old and that person that you spent your lifetime helping is no longer there to protect you.
He has passed on and was honored with a funeral and memorials that will last for years. You, however, are now deemed too old to be of any value to anyone so you are sent to the killers for your demise.
I won't go into how your life would end with these money hungry horse killers but I will say this, no person, no animal, no living thing deserves to leave this earth under those conditions.
STOP THE SLAUGHTER...Treat your friends (Human or animal) as such and send them on with the same dignity they displayed while they served you. JWSIII"
