I am of the opinion that if you are breeding, training or boarding horses that you should be a business. Inquire about the daily routine of the stables. There should be staff on hand to feed, water and clean your horse’s accommodation as well as to keep them well groomed. Ask about de-worming and any specialty diets – for example, if you’re keeping a performance horse or are breeding race horses for sale , may require a specialty diet. The animal rights people used videos and photos of the rare occurrences of mishandling in slaughterhouses to their advantage in a massive shock campaign to gain support to outlaw horse slaughter. The last three slaughter facilities to close in 2007 President Bush signed the bill that outlawed horse slaughter in the US – Illinois and two in Texas – used a penetrating captive bolt, one of three methods of euthanasia recommended by the AVMA. The other two are lethal barbiturate injection and gunshot. Some countries have organized teams with rescue workers mounted on horses to make search and rescue faster. They also speed up the transport of much needed medicine or where modern vehicles cannot traverse due to terrain. The horse’s fossils in North America went extinct about 55 to 10,000 million years ago. These were the first horses and not those that were brought by settlers in Europe to America. As such, social media offers businesses a marketplace of enormous proportions with an audience base running into billions of users. Thoroughbred racing doesn’t always get all the headlines. Basketball players, quarterbacks, even soccer players and Olympians get most of the glory, the TV biopics, the Sports Illustrated covers. But twice during the twentieth century, a horse became not merely a media star, but a universal symbol – a galvanizing, galloping metaphor on legs. Hi, Sam played with the Lucasi cue and it’s Great! Can feel the difference already it’s great and a quick delivery. Friesian horses are known not only for their agility, energy and high-stepping trot, but also for being a docile, affectionate breed. I am just amazed that during the H1N1 flue pandemic nothing shut down. A national emergency was not declared until over 1,000 people had died from it. Secondary issues are that in the United States these horses are raised as pets, companions and working animals, not as food. In Germany where everyone has probably grown up eating horse maybe no one thinks twice about riding their horse all day and then eating their horse’s cousin for dinner. I don’t know. But in the US eating horse is not typical and is generally viewed the same as eating cat or dog. Some people have issues with rabbits being eaten. I cannot personally eat rabbit because I spent too much time raising them.
