How does one put into words the total disgust, outrage, anger, frustration and incredulous disbelief one experiences when faced with the outright complacent attitudes and inactivity of government officials which our tax dollars provide affluent lifestyles for…while all our shouts of protest and calls for positive action are totally ignored. Well one cannot put into one word the emotions as described above.
While U.S. advocates continue to battle to Save America’s Horses, while the U.S. government fails to honor the Legal Bill passed so long ago to protect designated lands provided for wild horses and burros within the States….the special interest groups continue to fill the political coffers in their unending campaign to ensure that the Bureau of Land Management continues brutal roundups, the capture of an Historical Icon and ship these terrified, injured and magnificent horses thousands of miles to end their lives in the most horrific manner imaginable.
While all this is going on in the United Sates, Canadian wild horses are facing the same prejudice, the same round ups and the same horrors in slaughterhouses within Canada. It is bad enough that Canada enables the U.S. slaughter by importing U.S. horses into this country….to know that our own horses face these very same horrors is mind blowing.

Now even domestic Canadian horses are losing their lives and the lives of their new born to the government policies within this country. Should we be surprised……nothing surprises this writer any more. The horrors just keep piling in, every single day, every single week, each and every year!!!!!

“Imagine a mare going through the pain and struggle of giving birth while the owners waits with a needle of death, for her newborn foal Minutes later her new tiny baby is dead…. after having only known a few seconds of life. It is unspeakable brutal and unconscionable !! Please blitz Media TWEET post on face book protest tell your friends talk to your community newspaper editors?”
“Hasn’t Steven Harper’s government done enough to allow animal cruelty to permeate this country ?”
The Canadian Government has to take responsibility for this brutal slaughter!!”

Richard Moylan, a thoroughbred stallion breeder based out of Orangeville, felt “shocked and disgusted” when he read in the Sun that funding to the horse racing industry is coming to an end. He’s seen here with a foal born Friday.
Horse breeders have been brought to tears at the news that the end of the racetrack slots-revenue sharing program is going to result in the death of hundreds of horses.
“This just kills me,” said horse breeder Richard Moylan. “It is simply unbelievable, I’ve never had anything happen like this.”
