Life is a circle that we all live and participate in. Horses are the same to not have a final solution for what is written to be, is a failure of man to do what is needed. Since we are all destined to be recycled and so it is with the horse. Horses provide a valuable contribution to our lives the honorable thing to do is to provide for their end days with compassion. The practice of equine slaughter can be an acceptable and humane way to help the horse. The economic spin off can be used to fund the enforcement of humane treatment standards by processing facilities. At the end of the day we can all say we did our job as best we could for our friend the horse.
