Nice story. Thank you Judy. I am a huge fan of the Chicago Mounted Police Unit. I could have had a job there but there is no way to get there at five in morning by public trans from my neighborhood. I don't drive. It takes about sixteen months to train a police horse. They have to be calm and obey no matter what is going on. The police call them "bomb proof."

No animals should go to slaughter, least of all horses, all these stories prove it, prove that horses are bright and intelligent and attached to us with a golden cord of compassion and understanding.
If only we could start with horses, not allowing them to be slaughtered, and once humans are used to that we could introduce them to not slaughtering anything, its not right to kill and eat our fellow beings...

Notée, les animaux devraient tous être traités avec autant de respect. C'est un bel exemple qu'il ne faut pas les laisser tomber.
