Why in the world would someone even be carring so many horses. What was he going to do with them

Take them to slaughter in Canada. Yea. Human civilization wouldn't even be where it is now if it wasn't for horses and this is how they are repaid.

There is legislation pending to prevent horse slaughter. See, it was made illegal to slaughter horses in the U.S. but not to ship them across the border for slaughter. So now, there is legislation to close that loophole and rightly so!
