yea i think horse abuse is a big problem, they are animals that need alot of care, more then your average house pet, and i dont think people realise that. thats why ive decided not to pester my parents about getting a horse anytime soon, as i know that right now i have no time to care and ride him/her, and i only want to get a horse when i know more about the care plus have well educated people around me that can help me along the process and know what they are talking about, plus i want to be in a house where i know ill be for a while. my friends keeps her horse at a stable that takes in a lot of rescues and they are skinny as ever, but lovely horses. thanks for posting :)
edit: could only watch a quater before exiting. those horses who are so skinny is what upsets me. :(
. i also work here at a dog shelter and some of the cases are terrible (alot of skinny and sunburnt dogs), im just very lucky that i havent seen the worst cases in my 1 and a half years of being there.
