For those who think that horses should be put out to pasture and be able to live our their lives naturally; whose pasture should they be allowed to use? There is a cost to keeping them, feeding them, veternary costs and finally, how to dispose of them when they die. As it is, we have a huge wild horse population overwhelming the lands where they live (Yakima, for example) and the problem is only getting worse. Horses are beautiful animals, but wouldn't it be better for them to be humanely butchered and used for pet food or human consumption than be a economic and environmental detriment to society?
