Hail thy Horse!

OK, so with it being election day and all. We already know about the economic crisis, and the bail out plans, and blah blah. So I get the fact that we are all about ourselves, but, hypothetically speaking what if you were GUARANTEED to be able to make laws about and for horses, or any animal for that matter?!?!?! We were discussing politics on another blog, and it got me to thinking. I stated that if you are caught, ONCE just ONCE abusing, neglecting or mistreating any horse or animal, that you should be prohibited from EVER owning another animal in your sad pathetic life and you should have a minimum jail sentence. No matter what the lame ass excuse was. Either that or we can go back to an "eye for an eye." See how fun YOU think it is to be beaten, or starved, or kept in a filthy slimy stall with no fresh water. **Mwuahahaha evil laugh** Either one works for me, although I'm leaning towards the eye for an eye *grin*. So what about you? What laws would you pass if you could right now at the snap of your finger??? How would you improve the "horse crisis" IE: abandonment, starvation, abuse, hoarding, etc...??

Eye for an eye would work pretty well for the TWH sore trainers, the Rolkur dressage people, and the Stock Horse tail cutters... now how can we teach people not to breed HYPP? Induce seizures maybe...

Sounds like it'll be pretty darn effective! I'm with you on that one!

I'm liking the eye for an eye also, in jail they would get a roof over their head, 3 meals, and clothes on their back plus of course heat or a/c, indoor plumbing and cable tv in the eye for an eye they would actually have to suffer like the animals did.

Eye for an eye should be the sentence, along with having to pay for all the costs associated with re-homing, rehab, and any (re)training necessary.
