Re: Tennessee Walking Horse Shoe Torture
What is really the tragedy is that the very group that "celebrates and makes money" off of these gorgeous creatures are the same people that torture and deform their feet. It does not take a health inspector to see those shoes of torture and those pitiful hooves ground down to nubbins.
It must be absolute agony for the horse carrying that weight, Plus they hold their heads too tight and break their tails. God made them perfect and the very group who should care the most thinks this is okay?
All those padded shoes are so obvious that those are cruel without the chemical soring. Ban all unnatural devices. It is clear to see on those horses faces they are under extreme stress and pain. How could you love that breed and be so cruel?
To quote Joe Strummer, if you are out there getting the honey, you don't go killing all the bees. Care for these magnificent creatures with reverence and affection, not abuse and torture.
