Spinoff: Food Stamps and Horses
SLW's thread got me thinking, what do y'all think about approving someone for foodstamps if they own horses?
I've known several people on foodstamps who also owned horses, and I find it kind of offensive. If you can't afford to buy food, why own a horse, complete with 5 figure loan on a brand new horse trailer, and regular show expenses?
I understand disability, sure there are a few people who abuse the system, but I also get that there are a lot of illnesses that aren't readily visible to the naked eye. If I couldn't afford to buy food though, my horse would be gone until I was financially sound.
