Horse Industry Needs To Evolve

Carol Thomas (Stop Importing Slaughter Horses, July 1 Manitoba Co-operator) suggests she raises horses for pleasure, showing and driving, yet she has no management plan for her crippled, sick and old stock. Instead she would rather choose slaughter versus euthanasia. This indicates she’s in favour of any solution as long as it makes her money versus spending money to care for them.

I’m also curious and wonder if she treats any of her sick animals before they are slaughter bound. How does she feel about the new regulations? If indeed she’s not raising her stock for slaughterhouses then this new regulation should have no effect.
