    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.

    Whether it's verbal or physical, on a human or an animal, abuse is abuse. And anyone who could abuse a being should have their *** royally kicked by several people.

    If you test on animals, you're a piece of crap. It's known that cruelty to animals is a precursor for abuse of humans. Just saying.
