There was no happy retirement for race-winning thoroughbred Nature's Child. Her last moments were spent in fear and terror at Laverton Knackery. No horse deserves to die this way. Help save other animals from the same fate by taking action today

WHO COULD ACTUALLY DO THIS?

How long do you work there before your heart has hardened to the point you can get through a day of such slaughter?

Noted and signed. My letter may not help with my added words, but had to try. How can they live with themselves after doing what they do to animals that give all they can and then are shot and their throats cut while alive ? I still have a huge lump in my throat.

Signed,thanks. I'm all to aware of the going on when these fabulous horses are sent to slaughter,it breaks my heart knowing the fear,stress,cruellty and death these animals endure. I did not watch that video cause i know it would leave me in a terrible state for days. I wish we as animal lovers could do more,most often i feel powerless. How can it be that so much of humankind ca be this evil???? We need our young kids to be taught to respect and appreciate all animals and then only perhaps animals can have a chance. I hope for this everyday.

If racehorses can not have a meaningful life after racing then they should not be bred and raced in the first place
Its just another form of animal cruelty for these noble creatures just to satisfy mens pleasure and once again monetary gain It should be stopped They are willing enough to keep them happy while they are winning all the money When they have done this then they should have a decent retirement How would humans like to get to retirement are not making any money so are cruelly treated then shot Mans indifference to animal feelings and suffering never ceases to amaze me Its heartbreaking and something needs to be done about it
