  1. Sometimes I think part of their brains are missing, when I read these reports of brutality against horses. How can people who do this to horses call themselves horsemen? This is NOT HORSEMANSHIP. This is vile abuse and torture of horses! The barbarians and so-called cowboys that can do this to horses need to be locked up for animal ABUSE!!!!
