You bet they die…

The Grand National was this weekend, and two more horses died on the difficult and dangerous course, while many others were whipped with what is now termed as “unnecessary force” as they crossed the finish line.  All to support financial greed. Stop this now. http://www.animalaid.org.uk/images/pdf/leaflets/grandnational.pdf

  1. Glad you posted this, Joannavdh. I have never placed a bet on the GN because the suffering of the horses leaves me devastated. I can never watch the images on TV now. I had rescue ponies and a horse who were no longer wanted when they couldn’t perform or win trophies any more. It’s money all the time with some people – I have known some equines who could have lived a happy life just hacking around but were put down for insurance purposes.
