My grandfather was a WWI vet who cared for the horses and always respeted them, loved them, and let them age out in pasture. He said some of his finest friends were horses. Winston Churchill loved horses, and protected them after te war. Horses are a part of our American History, Heritage, Cultures and we should stand together to prevent the horrific deaths of horses stabbed to death and killed in Cnada and Mexico. We are not the servants of the world nor should any one kill for the plate .
