    Race Horses are beautiful creatures, I adore them. So graceful, but pushed beyond their means. Horse racing and other forms of entertainment with animals is abuse. The gambling and fashion industries can make money from humans in other ways, thank you.

    So Mean

    Let's take this horse, whip him to make him run fast in numerous races, and then when he's worn out and damaged from being pushed too hard, we'll put him down and send him to the glue factory. THAT IS JUST WRONG.

    It is pathetic. They really feel that terrible for themselves that they have to take their anger out on something that can't fight back? Makes me sick.
