  1. I hope that that breeder who neglected his horses gets the book thrown at him. His case is not the only one of it’s kind, and things are only going to get worse before they get better. Unscrupulous breeders of all levels need to do what’s right for their horses before they let things get bad.

  2. We can not let the slaughter bill pass in IL. I live there, I don’t want to see the aniamls I love being put to death that way. It would be nice if it was humane, but it’s never going to be like that,
