Horse haven

Seventeen equines saved by Clandeboye sanctuary.

Aside from the abuse, there is another sad, but true, fact that weighs heavy on the heart of animal lovers — many unwanted horses go to slaughterhouses. Riddell explains that there remains a market for horse meat in Europe and Japan. But even this market has seen the bottom drop out. She said, “Horses, once going for $1.20 a pound, are now worth five cents a pound.” As abhorrent a thought at it is that these great creatures are going to slaughter, it’s unimaginable that they’re worth so little.
