  • I have never understood fighting being seen as sport whether it's dogs, chickens, people or horses. To me it is just cruel & dumb.

  • This is absurd! I own two horses (one a registered Quarter Horse and the other 1/2 Morgan & 1/2 Quarter Horse) and the thoughts of subjecting horses, dogs, cats, roosters, whatever to something like this is outrageous.

    I don't agree with PETA for some of their antics either, but for something like this, they'd have my full support!

  • I think horse meat should be eaten more. After all, horses are basically jittery, high maintenance, stupid, eating machines. Imagine a big rack of BBQ horse ribs. Cows are much more peacful, calm, and in my opinion beautiful. Spare the cow, eat the horse.

    I don't approve of horse fighting though. Why are we so (cliche) "speechless" about horse fighting but we let dog and chicken fighting go on in our own backyards. Why do so many people look the other way when the idiot trainers in the walking horse industry routinely sore the horses? Why are we so worried about what people in every other country but our own sorry one do when we can't even get our own act together. Just a few "whys".

  • I agree that he who is without sin should cast the first stone but if we abide by that precept,I don't think you nor I nor any of the rest of us will be putting ice on our rotator cuffs any time soon.

    If we can't use our pitching arms to hurl rocks at our neighbors,we could try using them for hugging or hauling people out of the abyss.

    If we can't use our hands to build or support one another,maybe we should just use them to cover our mouths.

    Let's not just speak of our superiority or another's flaws.

    Let us demonstrate the right sort of conduct and help the other folk to do likewise.

    If we all take the debris out of our eyes,we'd have the vision required to make things better.
