    HAHAHA!!! I really dont care. You're all a select "few" of COTH bullies who attack anyone who doesnt think in-line with you're way of thinking. My opening thread asked for opinions & instead I was attacked by a bunch of pro-slaughter wolves. Report me?? ....typical behavior of a bully. Bullies can dish it out but they cant take it.
    Someone attacked me by the # of posts ive had on COTH and suggested I had no business saying anything. Well, by the # of posts some of you have... I would say you need to get a life!! Apparently you think your own wisdom & great knowledge so surpasses anyone elses, you must be on COTH endlessly to share it with everyone. Go outside & breathe some fresh air. it would be good for ya.

    Is anyone else thinking that OP is about 12 and just now heard about slaughter, watched videos, and spent waaaaaaayyy too much time on the PETA website?

    Also, OP, most of us are not "pro slaughter", just pro responsibility and realistic.

    Nobody 'attacked' you, Snookums.

    You asked for opinions and unfortunately for you, got ones that didn't dovetail with your view of the world. So instead of maybe actually learning something you decided to throw a tantrum, curse at other posters for telling you the truth, and generally decided to act like a 5 y/o whose ball has been taken away for naughty behavior.

    FYI OP -- here is the HUMANE SOCIETY of the US (HSUS) list of rendering plants they recommend for use by horse owners.

    HAHAHA!!! I really dont care. You're all a select "few" of COTH bullies who attack anyone who doesnt think in-line with you're way of thinking. My opening thread asked for opinions & instead I was attacked by a bunch of pro-slaughter wolves.
    You asked for opinions, but didn't like the opinions that were given.
    You were actually the one who started to insult anyone who didn't have an issue with the use of horsehide.
    You were not attacked.

    People tried to explain to you that horsehide in the US comes mainly from rendering plants. That didn't seem to fit into your argument, so you then made up a "fact" to support your side of the discussion.

    The bulk of what goes into a rendering plant comes straight from the slaughter house. Rendering plant/slaughter plant... same thing. Little is supplied from owners who couldnt afford to dig a hole.
    It was then again explained to you that this was incorrect, still without an attack. You then made up the "I called them and asked" post. Some of us already knew (not guessed) where horsehide comes from. And some of us already knew where US Galco gets theirs also, since they're at most of the gun shows some of us attend. So some of us already knew that the new "fact" you posted was incorrect. Not to mention it doesn't make sense to pay so much extra for hides that require importing and the fees attached, not to mention the transport/shipping in. And FWIW, horses slaughtered aren't skinned in a manner for fine tanning. They are, like cows, strip-skinned. The required layer of underlying fat isn't left on and the skin is not removed the correct cut for fine tanning. Fine tanning is the process Horweens and other fine tanners use to produce specific products.

    So no, the hides cannot come from slaughter plants for this products US Galco) purpose.

    There isn't any need for the "they told me the truth and lied to you" comments because not only does that make sense only to some high schoolers, I already know the Galco company, their products, a few of their reps and where they obtain horsehide. Not to mention lobbying means you know where all equine-based products are made because you kind of have to know.

    PLease reconsider the hysterics, insults and language. This is a fantastic spot to learn a whole lot about the equine industry and as a young person who may become involved in it, this is a decent opportunity to expand your knowledge.

    Mistyblue, have I told you recently how much I love you? You totally rock!

    Now stop with all those silly facts. Who wants to deal with facts when emotions are so much more fun?

    How many horses have you kept from the slaughter pipeline, DC? In other words, how many have you taken into your barn, retrained, and found good new homes for? It might interest you to know that many of the posters who have replied to you have done their share, and more. The difference is that we're grownups. And, that we have sense enough to realize that it doesn't matter to the horse what happens to its hide after it's dead. I also reported you, before I saw that someone else had already done so. Foul insults have no place on this, or any other, forum.

    This gets so old. When the renderer comes to get your animal ( cow, horse,pigs, sheep, goats, whatever) it is already dead. We need slaughter & rendering plants available for all livestock owners to use . When a horses usefulness here is done why waste what it can provide after it is dead? You guys make no sense.

    Someday you might want to consider taking a class in persuasive writing.
    You obviously need professional help.
    While you're at it, try a class in critical thinking.
    Maybe they'll give you a discount if you try both.

    Now I'm wondering what the OP would have everyone do with their horses.

    Not everyone can bury or afford to pay for cremation. Not everyone will want cremation.

    If the bodies can't go to the rendering plant, what happens to them?
