Horse slaughter bill is about money, not compassion

House Bill 1999 isn't about what's compassionate for horses. It's about money. Ranchers and breeders don't love their horses. For them, horses are a commodity. You don't dispose of an animal if it no longer serves your purpose. Animals are for life; you care for them from birth to death. If they become ill or aged, you euthanize them, not slaughter them. I grew up with horses. My parents didn't slaughter any of them as they grew old or infirm. Animals are a choice. If you can't care for the animal for all its natural life, don't have them.
