The story is multiplied thousands of times around the country, where retired racehorses are discarded to glue and meat factories. But, in North Dakota and Minnesota a group of passionate people are fighting to give them a second chance.

I saw this yesterday and it's a wonderful story of heart and compassion. So disheartening that these once prized horses are now faced with such torment and ultimate death. I wish these Kill buyers could be trampled to death...thx Judy

When these Animals are retired the Owners MUST be required, by law, to provide for their Care in retirement.

Every horse that is saved from such situations is one more that wont suffer a cruel and terrifying death. All animals matter, I just feel that horses do so much for us, they will do anything you ask of them and this is how they are repaid....people who send their horses to slaughter have a lot to ansswer for. they treat their horse like gold till they dont want it can anyone do that?
so these people that manage to save them near the end..I really applaud them..and how difficult it must be to go to these auctions and knowing you can only take one or two, but you cant save them all!

Now that they can't make anymore money off of them they send them off to be slaughtered, discussing humans!
