I Think Horse Racing Is Animal Abuse

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60 People

    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.
