Hi all!

I received an interesting e-mail today as a result of a kickstarter project I have started (available at the bottom of the post if you'd like to check it out; believe me it would be greatly appreciated if you would!), but project aside; I would like to focus on this e-mail for a second. It simply proves the ignorance of many in today's society.

"Hi, I do not want this to come off as being rude but I cannot understand why you say the horror of slaughter. Do you think that we are improving the quality of horses lives by keeping them from being humanely killed for meat and hides. Do you realize that because of the ban on horse slaughter not only have over 1000 jobs been lost in the US but horses are being left to starve, and are being shot or left to die on farms and ranches all over the county. What are ranchers to do with elderly/sick, or horses they can no longer afford to feed which has happened all over the country. Not to mention the cost of local and federal governments having to deal with neglected horses. If you truly care about horses welfare you would want to reinstate the horse kill."

Now realize please that this project is simply a photography book that I am putting together focusing on the beauty, innocence, and gentleness of these impressive animals. 100% of any proceeds made from the book will be going directly to organizations such as Canter USA and New Vocations to help ensure humane treatment to horses. Out of the blue I get a message like this. Awful! Anyway, thank you for listening to my rant! Hopefully getting it out there will help release some of the anger that quickly ensued after reading this.

Well, with the so called wild horses, who are an invasive overpopulating species, eating up so much range that is for deer and elk, it is a good idea to slaughter them and use the meat and hide. 8) :mrgreen:
