Bucephala, or Alexandria Bucephalus, was a city founded by Alexander the Great and named in honor of his horse, Bucephalus.

So much he cared (Alexander the Great) for his friend that he gave him the Honor of naming a city after him, I have never seen or heard of someone giving that kind of Honor to a Horse!!

I see the Cruelty in which the Horses are being treated and it just breaks my heart, because if it was not for the Horse there would be no world, it was with the Horse that people were able to conquered the world, and this is how they pay them back? by mistreating, abusing and killing their sons and daughters with no remorse, how SHAMEFUL!!!

We need to put pressure on the racing and Premarin industries, for discarding unwanted horses into the slaughterhouses, and also breeders of horses who will sell a horse to anyone with the right amount of cash and doesn't bother to ask if they know how to care for a horse!

How sad and pitiless! Maybe someone can start a petition? Some of those horses from my area get sent to New Mexico after the Nevada "round-up." And then they are sent to slaughterhouses all over the country in the guise of "adoption." BS! They may adopt out one of every several hundred they "cull" several times each year!

I can't imagine slaughtering a horse! They should be considered "pets" but now it's up to Congress to decide.

Horses are animals used for pet therapy, as companions of life, lead us on the back and give us incredible emotions ♥ thousands of people love this noble animal dignified.
Us who love horses say "enough"!

We do not allow the slaughter of horse meat ... is an animal for disease spread, share, so that people understand that eating the flesh of horses and how to eat the flesh of your dog ...
How much suffering involves the horses to eat them ..? ... Stop the long distance transport of horses / animals for slaughter.
Own .... If you can not eliminate animal protein, really cut it to a minimum and choose only the short chain.
Noted thank you so much Agnes
