Not to keep beating a dead horse, so to speak, but I'm down right mad. I recently found myself discovering new horse blogs and ran across one that is for saving all horses and had a post about the American horse slaughter issue. Now what pissed me off is that after I commented on it. The webmaster retorted for me to state sources and such claiming that my opinion was in the minority because she/he had horse owner friends over here and none of them share the same opinion.
1) You're friends because you share the same opinion.
2) All of us, opposed or for horse slaughter will find viable reasons and facts on both sides to support our opinions.
3) Our cultures, although both western are vastly different. ( And I'm talking about British horse ownership comparably to American horse ownership) and I can say that I'm relatively confident knowing such because I am married to a Brit.
I just believe that a person who doesn't live over here really needs a few facts or at least look at cultural differences before making statements. I personally would love to save them all. It makes me sad, but I can't and I believe that in the of banning horse slaughter in the USA, there have been many other problems created which haven't been addressed. I don't know the solution but it may be a necessary evil.
