We get a lot of responses on our blog when horse slaughter is a topic. One thing that keeps coming up is that the “big breeders” are to blame. However, I’ve been to quite a few of the ‘killer sales’ and I have yet to see a horse go through the sale pen with current and popular breeding. Instead what seems to be coming through the pen, that I see, are what seem to be a lot of back yard experiments, someone crossing this breed of horse with that breed.

To be honest there really isn’t much of a market for these horses especially if they don’t get a good education. I’m not saying current and popular bloodlines never go through I’m just saying that I haven’t seen them. Have you? What do you think?
