This is a picture of something you will never see again.
Red horse is permanently lame, he has a bone chip in his knee and arthritis in his fetlocks. The vet said he would be sound for the occasional pony ride at a walk, but thats it. So now we're looking for a pasture ornament home for him.
This makes me so angry because all this could have been avoided if he had not been raced as a two year old. The whole racing industry just disgusts me. This is a wonderful gelding that has just a perfect mind, he is willing, friendly, polite, and just so darn sweet. And there is NOTHING we can do to make him comfortable. NOTHING. All we can do is turn him out and hope he can still walk when he's 18. I HATE racing, it ruins so many good horses and makes so many more that no one can take, so they get a roadtrip to mexico. And ruining horses could be avoided for the most part by WAITING to race them until THEIR FINISHED GROWING!!
so all i have left to say is.........
SCREW YOU RACEHORSE OWNERS!!!! YOU GREEDY SLIME OF THE EARTH!!! THESE HORSES ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND YOU FAILED THEM!!!!
