Shedrow Confessions

This is the story of a beautiful, healthy, former race horse who was sold for slaughter even though there was a viable bid in place to save him, even though this went against the former owner’s wishes.

For all of you who think slaughter is not happening or is “more humane” – this is an article you should read and a blog you should subscribe to.

There are no graphic pictures in this story, just a photo of a beautiful horse, running in his pasture, on a warm sunny day.  Here’s hoping his last few hours and his death were as painless as possible.

  1. Very disturbing. I know nothing about this whole world, so I learned a great deal from reading the information you linked to. Thank you.

      It’s really heartbreaking…but there are come wonderful organizations that are working to try to rescue unwanted horses as well as slow down back yard breeding. I can’t rescue another one but I can buy the calendar from the organization I LOVE in the rescue arena. Check out this post. $19.95 per calendar, all proceeds go to rescue and this group – One Hose At A Time -has not allowed one horse to go to slaughter from the Camelot auction in New Jersey.
