You know I'm right - the Zionists boasted of using their children as human shields.

Thrust into danger - as no Palestinian individual or organisation has ever done. (Yes, I've challenged dozens of the hasbarists on this score - they always run away)

You people are just the most disgusting child abusers and hypocrits.

Jenifer, please read this and watch as much of the footage as you can stand.  Why isn't something being done about this?  These horses have known only kindness, gentleness and a life of plenty until all of a sudden, they are of no more use to their owners.  I know there are people that would take them in, if it were offered.  There has to be.  Is it a matter of money?  Is this done all over the world?  I'm so sickened and saddened.  There has to be a solution.

I know it has been happening, but I cannot watch it.

I know that makes me a coward, but I have not been able to bring myself to report on this atrocity.

I stopped betting on the Melbourne cup over a decade ago.  A horse snapped a fetlock in a race and was shot on the course. (Behind a screen, of course).

My Aunt and Uncle used to train trotters (pacing horses, with a gig).

When those horses retired they TRULY went to live on farms, because they were not gallopers.

Race horses cannot go to riding camps, because they are trained to gallop.  So yep, they end up at the knackery.

I spent 6 months as a strapper (not stripper, strapper), and absolutely fell in love with a horse called Raki.  He used to try to eat my shirt while I was cleaning out his stable.

Buster was a shit of a horse who REALLY wanted to kick me.

There was a chestnut mare who always got herself tangled in a two wire fence (that takes a special level of determination), and after a rain she would head out into the middle of the grazing paddock and stand in mud until she started to sink.  I spent many an afternoon rescuing her from her own stupidity.

I CANNOT watch this.

There are a LOT of protests going on right now, as racing season has started.

I am just ONE person who will never bet on a horse race ever again.

This news will increase that number.

Trust me, if they do not change, then their industry is ruined.

I imagine the same thing is going on in the UK.

So far, this issue has been exposed for greyhounds, not horses.

I'm not sure I can get too excited about it, unfortunately - and if dog-lovers cannot be stirred, I see no hope for horses.

So basically, what this article says is "so sad, too bad", and nothing will be done.  It's sickening.
