And right below it, this...
First we use them to honor a fallen Marine, then let's just slaughter them all.. This makes me so angry. It's all about the money to be made by the foreigners. Not about what's best for the horses. The proslaughter people say there are 100,000 unwanted horses. There were around 140,000 horses salughtered last year in Canada and Mexico. Have we run out of unwanted horses yet????? Guess not, they are still shipping across the borders to the plants. The slaughter of our horses is all about the money to be made. It's not the old, thin, and sick that are sent to slaughter. We all know that. I'm tired of the lies from the AQHA, APHA, the appy association, Cattlemen's association and the Farm Bureau. For God's sake, tell the freaken truth, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!!!! A horse has the mentality of a 4 year old child. Picture a double decker full of 4 year olds heading to a slaughter plant, going without water, food or rest for over 18 hours. How does that picture sit with you? GRRRRRRRRRrrrr

Yesterday was such a nice day, temp at 70 degrees. Today, it's back to cold and north winds. If we get through this up and down stuff without a case of colic, I will be so thankful. The equines are busy looking for a sprig of green. There is some green beginning to show but not much yet, but it's early. The new run in is done. Not really pretty as we recycled some old tin on it but a nice coat of white pain will help it look like the rest of the place. Pictured from top to bottom is Hawk, Dunkey and a bit of Pepper the goat. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Is spring here?? Do these little guys sleep during winter?? I'll have to do some checking on the net. I saw 2 of them rooting around in a field yesterday. Personally, I think they are cute, strange but cute. We saw one here last Spring. Scooter was amazed, he had the funniest look on his face. His forehead was wrinkled and he looked at me as if to say, "let me out, I want to see what that is!!" Of course I didn't, the dogs must stay inside the backyard fence. I don't believe in letting my dogs run loose. I know, it's the country but still I want my dogs to stay home where they are safe. I have seen another loose dog twice now. It has a red collar on, I'm hoping it belongs to a neighbor and is not a "dumpee" like Jake was. At least this one looks to be in good shape......for now. It's cold again, 22 degrees but should be sunny with calm winds so we will work on getting the tin up on the new run in. Have a great day everyone.

This is Sweetheart. Saved from slaughter by the Fans of Barbaro. She is #10. We are full now. Until someone crosses the Rainbow Bridge, there will be no more new ones. She is supposed to be 19 years old. I named her sight unseen and it must have been devine intervention because she certainly is a Sweetheart. We now have 8 saved from slaughter equines. Each one is different and each one is special. Rescues are having a tough time now because of the economy. If you can help out even with a few dollars it would be great. Even giving of your time to a rescue can help out a bunch. Working with rescued animals is such a great thing to do, they are so greatful for your attention.
One way to help is to visit Savedahorses.org and donate $10.59 for a rescue. Here is the link:
I did. And it feels great to know that just that small amount can help a lot.
