The March 14 article titled "Kentucky, land of the thoroughbred, swamped with unwanted horses" could not have been further from the truth.

I always knew better than that. Kentucky is the Horse Capital of the world. Why would they say something so stupid about Kentucky of all places.

I think it's still important to realize that there are many horses that are abused through the racing industry. I'm not talking about the sensationalistic fate of Barbaro but the horses that run their hearts out and get no appreciation. I used to adopt horses from the track (harness racers mainly) and find loving homes for them. These poor animals had scars up and down their legs, their spirits were sometimes broken and they had to be retrained to be a horse again.

There are some wonderful breeders out there that love horses and love the sport. There are others that use the sport as a business and don't care what happens to the majestic animals they're racing.
