He's better than most dealers, traders, dudes one step before the neat market because he will take your horse off your hands, for free, and somehow profit from that, even if it means a straight trip to the meat plant? Just because he's sort of up front? GAG!
Still a greedy (insert bad word) in my opinion. I don't buy the "he's helping some find homes by training and selling". He's helping his own pocket, period!
People who care about the horses, any good human, does not EVER put a horse on a slaughter truck, knowingly sell to a kill buyer. They just don't. Greedy (bad word) people do.
If he were decent he would take and train saleable ones, and humanely PTS the others and give the body to a big cat rescue, zoo etc. he would have his main priority the welfare of the horse, if he were decent. Not how much money he could make.
I am not against HUMANE transport and slaughter. But if anyone here thinks the current situations are anywhere close to humane, your heads are up your fannys.
You can argue all you want. I think he's garbage, because I think decent humans don't do that. Being sort of upfront about it doesn't make him better, IMO.
