  1. How does this carnage continue and no outrage from the industry itself?…if they really do have the horses’ welfare as a priority? Clearly they do not.

    RIP Miss McKeown, Sixes Slinky Secret, She’s a Listener. To the other 10 horses listed here, I can only hope your welfare will be important to someone close to you…and that you do not wait for help that is never going to come.
