Our mission is two-fold: bring awareness to the dishonest, heinous practice of selling America's pet and sport horses to slaughter houses across our southern and northern borders. And, share true cowboy lifestyle with others using slaughter-bound horses. These horses are loaded into cattle trucks (much too short for horses) and shipped without food or water to Mexico and Canada. Many horses do not make it along the way. They are slaughtered inhumanely without dignity and in fear. Then, served on a European's plate as a delicacy of the wealthy. This is not the end hard-working pet horses deserve, and we've already voted on it once as American citizens to outlaw this practice. Every one of the horses in this photo (and our 5 other horses not pictured) were destined for this fate until we stepped in. Star, Scout, Hoss, and Chief were all bound for slaughter in Mexico.
