  1. why are you all doing this? these poor horses are being tortured and in a the end they are killed? stop making your money by torturing these beautiful so that you can look good it does not make you look good find another job and leave these poor horses alone. this is nothing but legal animal abuse. you should be thrown in prison fir each horse that you torture and murder
