Anyone who has seen a slaughter house knows it is far from a humane place. I horrible painful and frightening end for an animal that was once a faithful companion, worker and your responsibility. Horse owners need to take responsibility for their animals as parents must for their children. Slaughter is an inappropriate way to end their lives. When our horses get too old to be useful and and otherwise unable to live comfortably we have them euthanized and bury them on our property. The barbiturates used are not poisonous. The death is quick and painless. It costs little for a farm call and a backhoe to dig a hole the whole thing is a $100! I would never send any horse to slaughter. There are better humane ways to handle their deaths.
