Gail WiotOrland Park, IllinoiaI'm ashamed to say I live in Illinois. Shame on the Illinois Legislators for not putting an end to this in Illinois when we had the chance. I pray every day for those horses who died there. I'm tired of the foreign companies destroying our horses. To those that say they were unwanted - You just don't have the facts. Get the foreigners out of our country and stop killing our horses! There are plenty of homes if they were only given a chance.
Sandy NelsonWilliams Lake, British ColumbiaWhen an animal dies at the hands of another animal, we recognize that this is Mother Nature at work and even though it may bother us, we accept it for what it is, because it is natural. There is nothing natural about slaughtering these precious creatures or any other beautiful animal. When are people going to learn and understand?

Claudia EmmonsErie, IllinoisI used to live in DeKalb about 1 mile from that Hellish "facility."We had a farm at 16468 S.1st.St.We were doing Thoroughbred rescues for a groom at Crownsway Farm in Plato Center.We placed 16 horses for her that would otherwise have been put down or sold to a killer.During the time we lived there,they had 2 occasions when horses escaped from Cavel.The second time they got out, we were mentioned in local gossip as maybe being involved.We weren't,but if we had been, those horses would never have been caught by them again.One of the happiest days of my life was when that place burned down.May it burn AGAIN!Sincerely,Claudia Emmons and Gene Mioletti

Haley -Jo KennyBroolyn, New YorkThis is a wonderful website and a great way to honor all the poor, innocent horses who trusted their owners with all their hearts yet were killed in a torture house. No living thing deserves to die like that, espescially an animal as elegant and loyal as a horse
Steph MitchellPelzer, SCGod love them all!!

Wendi MorrisseyMarlboro, NYMy dearest Revere, CJ23, you were saved from slaughter by the kindness and generosity of those who donated thier time and money to a PMU foal rescue. He was then given to me by my best friend Regina. Thank you to all that have helped Revere find his way to me. And thank you to all of those who care about these magestic animals.
mary dillonalbany, NYAs a horseowner, I am horrified by the man's reatment of another species, particularly one as noble as the equine!! I would take them all to another world of endless pastures
Cindy CRochester, NYTo Gnosis: I rescued you from the race track and certain death as a 3 year old. We were together for 20 years and I realized that it was you that rescued me. Rest in peace my dearest friend.

He is a willing healthy partner. What a waste it would have been if he ended up where his previous owners wanted him to go. Just so they could buy a fancy show horse.

LaurenOakville, OntarioHorse slaughter is an international tragedy. Horses are creatures that deserve as much love and compassion from humans and they give us. There is not a single person who should be proud of this industry, and I promise that horse slaughter will come to an end. For all the horses who have been slaughtered I regret not being able to end this all faster. May you rest for eternity in green pastures and under blue skies.

Laura BruhjellCalgary, AlbertaI don't know what to say as I sit here in front of my computer with tears streaming down my face, but it nearly kills me to think of the countless beautiful creatures who have left this world in such a barbaric and inhumane way. We have to stop this. If I could change one thing in this world it would be equine slaughter without a doubt. No creature deserves to die that way, let alone one so beautiful and sentsitive and genetle as a horse. As people, we have a choice. Horses do not. So please let us choose to remove this horrifying, murderous practice from our world and give these animals the respect and care that they deserve. Until that blessed day comes, let us pray that God will ease their suffering and take them to a better place. I don't mean to sound like some kind of religious quack, but I believe that there is a God who loves his creation, and I trust that he will take care of them all. I feel as though every one lives in my heart, in everyone's heart, and so it is our duty to make things change and make horse slaughter history, never to be repeated. Here's to them all, their souls burning with the flame of this candle... forever.

AlyshaNewbrook, Alberta, CanadaRemember the beautiful horse that lost there lives by being only just an animal. But horse are not just any animal we don't just slaughter them because they are too wild or old or to ugly or too bold, for these animals can all be helped or if not we can put them to sleep. But why are there people in the world that only ever see the outside of a horse and never ever see the inside of one because they are too blind or full of them self to see the beautiful animal that it is. So please STOP the slaughter, horses don't deserve to die, God made them for a purpose a reason so we can enjoy them and love them until the last days of time. GOD PLEASE, PEOPLE PLEASE STOP THE SLAUGHTER. Lest We Forget.

CherylSilver Spring, MDNo horse willingly gives up his or her life to end up on someone's plate. Indeed, neither do the other animals who are exploited for food. Hopefully, the same compassion felt for these horses, who have met such a tragic end, will be extended to the other animals who are exploited for food -- animals who have the same capacity to suffer, and who have just as much individuality and personality, as our beloved companions. Slaughter is no less terrible for cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, rabbits, ducks,… There is no such thing as "humane slaughter" -- for ANY animal. Our society prioritizes animals based on our attachments to them. However, when it comes to suffering, there is no real difference between those animals people eat and those we view as companions. The difference is in our attitude towards them. Fight the good fight on behalf of ALL who suffer. Choose compassion over killing. Abolish slaughter.

Deb BazellNewport, New HampshireI am ashamed of our Nation's Leaders for allowing passage of a Bill making it Legal to slaughter Mustangs, or any other horse for that matter! I have a Mustang who was abused and rehomed several times. The person I got her from was ready to "shoot her", because she couldn't handle her. She is about 7 years old and has been with me for almost 2 years now. She is a wonderful mare and all she needed was someone to "listen" to her and gain her trust. My daughter can ride her bareback with just a rope on her halter! She nickers to us every day. We love her ways and respect them. We don't try to change her, only meet her half way. We love her so much!! She will always be with us!

Is there anyone near the Orland Park area that would like to join in creating a lobbying effort please contact me. Each day more will be slaughtered until we contact our Legislators and force them to change the law. We need to have our highways filled with billboards opposing horse slaughter. Each time I read an article about a horse being saved, I know that there are others that were not so fortunate. Let's pass this on to all our friends and families. I would like to thank all the rescue organizations all over the country for their continued efforts. Each time I think about this, I feel their pain. Let's hold the Legislators feet to the fire. If you can't go to Washington, call their offices and make appointments to see them. They represent the constituents and not their self interests.

Kristi HastingsParsons, KansasIt is really sad that these horses last memory was watching other horses being cut apart then shot in the head themselves. they need to outlaw slaughter houses. what is going to hapen when there are no more horses to slaughter. what about all the unborn horses that were just thrown away? this needs to stop.
TerriCrestview Hills, KentuckyMy heart bleeds for all those that have lost their lives. We must act now to save those who are still living! ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HELP NOW!
Patricia WadeSarasota, FloridaIt is an abomination that man has slaughter the very animal that has next to the dog helped to advance civilisation as no other domestic or wild animal has and we may very well still be living in caves and be on foot....this is why we owe them care,love and protection for all they have unquestioningly done for us and I urge all to be involved in stopping the slaughter of such wonderful and loving, loyal creatures who look to us for what they cannot do for themselves!! So Vert Sad To envision the suffering after they give so much and ask for so little.

JENNIFERHOUSTON, TEXASHorses are one of our nation's grandest and most cherished animals. They have helped to form this country. We have fought wars off their backs, used them to plow our fields and they have even taken us to church on Sunday mornings. To slaughter them is the ultimate betrayal. I am so dissapointed that America is allowing this to take place in our country and to our horses. I pray for the day that horse slaughtering comes to an end in this country and I mourn for each and every horse that this horrendous act brings to their demise. You beautiful animals do not deserve this.

Susan TaylorGrand Valley, Ontario CanadaIn loving memory of my buddy, Shane. Shane lived a long and I believe happy life. After life saving colic surgery at age 28 he lived another 5 years; I had him euthanized at age 33 after he developed severe colic again. I hope to see him again one day, after having the privilege to be with him for 19 years I am missing him greatly. Horses deserve respect and reverence-they have served us throughout history and continue to do so, they should never be slaughtered.

KeltiaMelbourne, Victoria AustraliaI have seen the wild Brumbies run… on a clear crisp morn. I have heard the thunder of their hooves… across the mountain plains. I have felt their call… at the going down of the sun. I have watched in horror and seen them fall …shot down… from above by an untrained eye. A single bullet… did not do the trick, for the Brumby is agile and quick. Culling was the term used to sanction...maim and murder was more the action. Today I do not see the brumbies where they once run. I do not hear or feel their call. All I have of them is the pain inside, as I watched helplessly as they died. Here in Australia, the Brumby is the horse of the wild, myth and legend. Something to be held treasured and held in awe.

Wolvercat2004Buffalo, N.Y.I had a dream of horses; high on a ridge - in a race with the wind. Upon the back of the leader of this wild-horse pack, I rode, feeling a freedom I'd never hope to know by myself. Both as one spirit we flew across the hills towards a waning sunset - as it faded light in on itself. We rode on and on, Leaving the rest of the wild herd of horses behind us; we were both now unchained from our individual sorrows & woes - now flying without care as we did bode. No noise, save for the sound our thunderous hoves, no words need spoken - to cloud our minds - only the sounds of peace flowing within each of us was heard - yea I say shared; as we furiously galloped across the earthly realm - as fast as we dared. Yea as I said, we were as one - as it should be...till the shot rang out & ended our dream. It sent us both reeling - crashing hard to the dirt. We seemed to tumble end over end - for hours, tho it were but just one awful moment in time. We both lay there - hurt and in pain - red blood strewn from our veins. Angels weeped - with some turning their backs in distain. The bullet had slamed its teeth ever so deep into my steeds right side - creening mercilessly to strike his proud heart. Its horrid trek of pain had a mere second before rended my flesh the same, for the bullet had 1st hit my leg in spiteful delight - it would spare no one this night; its demonic flight ripping thru my flesh clear to the bone - yea verily, no one would be spared this night. Then not satisfied with me it continued its bolt - ricocetting onto its intended real target... seeing a pure heart in its sight, And so it now rested within that nobility imbued in all wild horses. Its damage complete - its work now done. Being a man I knew there was nothing left for us to do but lay there sprawled out on blood-soaked ground, while we waited for the end. Two hearts that had beat as one - now were but one broken in spirit and one broken of life... how sad no one would be spared. We looked into each others eyes - his asked mine -"Why?" "Why did they shoot us?" "We'd done nothing wrong, this just isn't fair." My eyes just teared for I had no real answer for him - only pain-ridden fear to add to his own did my eyes thusly bare. I could hear the souless slaughter house's henchmen coming near - so I just whispered to him, "Close your eyes Wildsong - soon we'll both be free again - heaven holds a place for you and me this dusk - and in this you must trust, maybe someday when they've learned - we shall return & race the wind once more - beating as one heart, as we did before." With that said, he closed his his sullen eyes, with fear clutching him & I; as they approched us - a cheer on they're lips, one patting the other on the back for such good marksmanship. The man raised his High powered gun & aimed at Wildsongs head - a second shot rang out... my heart shattered & deaths laughter sang out upon the wind its hollowed ehco punctuating this wrong. Without looking to him, I knew I could't stay either - not without my wild friend with whom to race the winds. So I grabbed the closest gun from the closest deathdealer's hands & put the barrow to my head - sending my spirit to my wind-racer friend; Leaving by the wayside perplexed souless men. How would they explain my death - to the law of the land?! I laughed down upon them from above... and later that year, Wildsong & I would watch those men hang - they were led to slaughter upon wooden gallows - for the law didn't believe them that it was an unfortunate thing...after all it is what 'slaughters are paid to do - a horse - a man - what differance were they - they were only 2 and it is what slaughters do after all in the end. How sad I thought as we viewed from the clouds - those men just didn't see - with their slaughtering ways, it was only a matter of time before they'd be next on the list. Evil never goes say we all, whom cherish the ones - who race with the wind. (Stop the killing of noble 'wind-racers'people...lest you be the next on the list - to be written off by evils left hand]. ~Wolvercat2004

ilonka newtonseguin, texasi'm ashamed to live in texas. this slaughter must not go on. a candle for all the horses
VIckiMiddleton, Nova ScotiaI ride. my oldest daughter is learning how to ride. Horses play a big part in our family life. The fact that so many are suffering and dying at the hands of those who have no love or respect for these magnificent and noble creatures breaks my heart. There are so many who want a horse of our own and aren't able to because of financial constraints...yet those who DO have money, so often abuse their animals...
Emily WAsheville, North CarolinaOnly one question. Why?
jackiesandoval, ilwhen the human animal has finally managed to slaughter all of his 4-legged and winged brothers and sisters...he too will die.

KathrynMasterton, New ZealandHaving had the privilege of spending at least two thousand hours a year on a horse at one time, for many years...and also having been a professional farrier for over 25 more, cruelty to these magnificent creatures sickens me. We must work to persuade others not to mistreat them, and perhaps also to help prevent the production of so many that nobody is prepared to love and care for. My candle will be an actual one on my altar, in the certain knowledge that the souls of these children of Gaia will be chaerised by our Lord and Lady always. Bless you all for caring.
Stephanie BradleyManchester, United KingdomMy Prayers are with these beautiful creatures, this makes me so sad
KathleenWagoner, Oklahoma USAHow "SICK" and cruel this world has become! Are we going backwards in time? We kill everything living, for food, or to wear! When does it stop? What is next???????? WHO are really the ANIMALS.... US or the real Animals!!!!We have now done enough Evil to Mother Earth and Gods creatures, of Beauty.....That none of this will soon exist. For all the evil that has been done...Think About It Long and hard....If we don't STOP...Creator will stop us!

JenniferAda, OklahomaHorses have always been one of the biggest parts of our countries heritage. Is that not an important fact anymore. It seems the #1 priority has come to be the cattle that are roaming THE WILD HORSES is their land. Horses took our for-fathers into battle, the pulled the logs out of the woods to build your great grandparents homes, they pulled the buggy that took your great grandparents to doctors , the list goes on and on. Get your head out of the sand and someone please finally stand up for the horses that have helped get us where we are today!!

Shasta and Shawn Welch 5yr old twinsGraford, TexasWe dont want our horses to be killed. This is wrong.
Carolene WelchGraford, TxI work with horse rescues everyday and we can not keep all horses out of the slaughter houses. We need to shut the slaughter houses down for both the wild and the domestic horses. I think a good way to start is to send this page to all the schools and get the children involved also. Let them right their comments on this. Then send this to the white house. Thats how Mustang Annie won was the children. I think it would be cool if all riders that can go to the White House and do this on horse back. Lets fill up the White House's yards with horses and riders, fill up the streets and alleys. Instead of a sit in we will have a ride in. We would not move till they shut down all the slaughter houses.

We ended up addopting one, she ended up passing away, but not until she delivered her foal Anna, who lives with us today. There are not enough people to save all the many. Thanks for the good work.

LolaKelowna, BCI've always loved horses. One day on a very poor/broke week, a friend & I went to a riding stable up from her house. When we arrived, we were sickened! Especially for this one so-called" stud colt. Just a yearling. I couldn't get the poor thing off my mind. There was feed/water/oats,but he was tied securely by a heavy rope to his halter that he had burn marks from.The next day I dragged the old guy that taught me to ride/ how to properly care for horses. He looked at this colt (named Buster) - looked at me nearly lost for words. He asked me the purchase price & I told him $200.00 to which he replied "that's higher than meat price - he's crow-bait & he won't live another 2 weeks." It was the early '80's & he was definitely priced higher than "meat-price" I was starting a new chapter in my life - moving to Kelowna - starting my life over. But I couldn't get "Buster" off my mind. Being too proud to borrow money from people just as broke as me, I asked the man that taught me to ride, if I could plow, seed, haul bales ect; he said "sure, then I won't have to". He was in his early 60's then and still rode at 82. I worked from sun up to sun down for a week thinking I'd never earn the money I needed. At the end of that week, he gave me $200.00 and said "wages are goin' up, y'know". I phoned my friend (I had no tackle & wanted to be sure she was home. She met me with a lead rope & we ran to the stable. Mr., *&%)=^# then upped the price to $400.00. I was crushed as I knew he wanted him as a "stud colt". Right. I threw the 200.00 at his feet, clipped on the rope, stopping about every 20 feet to let the poor thing rest. He did fall down once. I led him into my friend's field, took the halter & lead rope off and he just laid down. After he got his shots etc., He happily grazed on grass & clover at my home that I'd sold & then looked after. After Buster had gained some weight and he being now a stallion with a field of mares across the tracks, the gentling began. I was gentled! Never underesamate a "now well fed" stallion that had never been ridden. He never attempted to throw me, and the "crow-bait" named Buster taught me much more than I taught him. He is still doing very well and into his mid 20's. When boarding him here in Kelona became way too expensive, I was able to give my nearly best friend to a wonderful lady - Sinikka, at her wonderland, The Responsible Animal Care Society. (T.R.A.C.S.)You also may have had the privilege of meeting "The Horse Rescuer" who spends the fall of each year doing what he loves. Rescuing Horses. You may have also seen him on Dateline. I apologise for the length of this post; it's a passion of mine as well.

Ed HoodMagnolia, TexasHorses have been a big part of our history. So why now are so many tring to make them history? Horse slaughter is wrong, and sould be put to an end. How can you kill a horse just to build your bank account. and I will never understand how some one could eat thier friend. Because they have ALWAYS be friends to us.

Jorden LeaheySalisbury, N.C.I Love Horses!Leave the mustangs alone!What did they ever do to us?!
Jorden LeaheySalisbury, N.C.The mustangs are the past and present of the west.It would'nt be the west without them.They say the mustang is the spirit of the west.their name comes from the spanish word 'mesteno',meaning "untamed".They are'nt meant to be tamed,they're like the wind and the rain,wild and free.Killing off the wild horses is like killing all human kind.They're just like us.Mustangs have hearts,feelings,souls,and minds,like us.You do'nt throw away a life,just because it's beat up a little.Let's not make another big and mindless mistake.We've already killed off the buffalo for sport.And we've slautered the spirit of the Native Americans and their native horses,the Appaloosa.So,let's save the Mustang breed from the hands of killers. [And remember,all of God's creatures are also his children.And they deserve better.]

I have even witnessed a pregnant mare "kill herself" when rounded up. For her and her unborn foal, I light a candle. She may not have truly understood what would have come of her and her foal but their existence as she knew it would have drastically changed. Hopefully, the horses that make it to the holding facilities will be adopted and the cruelty which the unfortunate face will be short lived.

StephaniePadgett, NCI have four mustangs, and they are the light of my life. I have owned horses since I was 14 (I am now 36), and NEVER have I owned a horse as intellegent, perceptive, and giving as the mustangs I adopted from the BLM program. I think it is a sad day in American History when the food cow is more important than the heritage of our American Wild Mustangs. How can a few horses be a threat to American lands when thirty million cows are not? There are some serious mental issues in our government and cattle farmers.

Betty MorganCitronelle, ALKeep fighting the good fight
Max MaverickGallup, New MexicoI say we send a message to the beef industry to leave our horses alone by boycotting beef until the Burns amendment is repealed and horse slaughter is banned for our domestic horses. Send them a letter saying that's what you are doing. Write o the NCBA in Colorado. If it weren't for them spending thousands if not millions lobbying to keep horse slaughter going we wouldn't have it any more. If you can give up meat altogether, then that's even better, cause other groups who slaughter animals for food have been supporting their cousins in the beef industry in fighting to keep horse slaugher from being banned. We need to scare the pants off em. Boycott beef! Boycott meat of all kinds if you can. But write to them and tell them you are. Tell them to leave our horses alone.
Judy WatsonVancouver, B.C. I come and visit this site often to see what people have to say, and so many express their care and compassion towards these these horses, and I see many entries saying Stop The Slaughter, and I can't help but wonder how many people who have entered their names eat meat, I like to add Stop Eating Meat! This macassare is a result of people who are eating meat, so by eating meat you are helping to make sure this slaughter happens, and also the slaughter of the cows and there off spring and all the predators that will also become victims of these new ranchs, so think about it. Also I have seen mentioned about getting intouch with your Congressman, PLEASE Do! While watching Farenheit 911 one of the Congresman mentioned that they usually don't read the Bill they just sign it, so it is important that we let them know what is happening. As far as Bush is concerned I have to rely on That VENGENCE is mine said The Lord.

I have every faith that this was the only reason our President signed it. There is surely a better way to accomplish our country's goals regarding feral horses. Indeed, many good ideas have been bandied about on the horse boards of which I am a member. If a handful of concerned citizens can brainstorm this matter, why can our politicians not develop a better plan than this?

Lisa NorriedValley Springs, CADearest Fellow Horse Lovers, I have read all your heatfelt comments above mine and I am inspired and awed by your dedication and love for one of our worlds most magnificent creatures. When one thinks of the Horse and looks at all his glorious details, intelligence, kindness and devotion to the humans that love them and share life with them it just goes to show ALL peoples Gods intricate attention to such wonderful details when he created this noble, beautiful and talented creature. How ANYONE can even conceive of slaughtering and then eating such an animal has to be in human. NO DECENT human that had an ounce of compassion, sensitivity or moral scuples would ever entertain the idea of abusing and profiting by this barbaric torture for profit. It comes down to MONEY, MONEY, MONEY and the EVIL GREED of those in a position of temporary power. I truly HATE people that do these things.If you think about it, it does'nt bother them to allow innocent unborn babies to be ripped out of the safety of the wombs of the mothers that don't want them, why should they let the vicious slaughter of horses bother them especially when they can make ALOT of money doing it. I have vowed not to eat meat of any kind anymore, especially beef because the cattle ranchers want the grizzly, wolves, horses. elk or any thing else that interferes with their "livestock PROFITS" run off, killed off or poisoned so they don't lose MONEY! If that cow did'nt bring a profit none of those kind of men and women would care what a wolf or grizzley did to a cow. I love all animals but I grew up eating meat and I do like its taste but I LOVE ANIMALS ALIVE and I can no longer go on eating them. I will drink milk from farms where the animals are well treated and cared for and I will eat my own unfertilized eggs from my own chickens (treated like family pets) and when they get old and no longer produce then they can spend the rest of their days scratching in the dust and grass looking for bugs. I vow to do in my own small way with my limited funds what I can for all animals wild and domestic especially horses, dogs, cats and exotic birds. I will write letters everywhere, senators, reps, congress, the
Heather GwillimUndisclos, edA candle for all the horses around the world that lose their lives before their time and for no veterinary problem but just slaughtered for profit after some times also suffering long crowded journeys with out food or water. May we treat these beautiful creatures with more respect in the future.
Cheryl L. MaibuschHinsdale, IllinoisI light this candle in memory of the unnamed horse that my bracelet represents. I wear the bracelet of a sorrel TB gelding, stripe, 16 hands - Slaughtered on 7/15/04. Bracelets available at: news/untiltheyaresafe.html I also wear the bracelet for Ferdinand. And for all the trail horses, race horses, police horses, Premarin mares and foals, American mustangs, and every other horse who has had to suffer the inhumanity, ignorance, and callousness of mankind. I apologize for my race, and while I cannot make it up to each horse who has paid the ultimate price, I can resolve to do my best to influence everyone I can to put a stop to this practice of slaughtering these symbols of companionship and freedom, loyalty and love. To you I make my promise.

I would love for them to watch a video of the slaughter of one horse from start to end and see if they still have the stomach for selling out the horses and the people they represent. its time to ger mad, i know i am!!

Please FATHER, strike them down with a touch of YOUR MIGHTY HAND, and help those who MUST put a stop to this wanton slaughter of so precious a creature as made by YOUR OWN HAND. In the name of Jesus and all that is loving, decent, kind and humane, FATHER, I pray YOU will help the horses, and help us humble humans put a stop to this senseless, insane INhumanity. I pray FATHER, this will be YOUR BLESSED GIFT to all HORSES, and for those who love them to the very depths of our soul. Amen

Marla HowellSeminole, Florida
Len CherfMentor, MinnesotaThe Burn Amendment should not have been included at all. I do not know why our President signed something like this. Notes and letters phone calls and E-Maile are needed to get this thing changed. Why not find out how many people there are that do not want our horses slaughtered! How many will write send E-MAils or make phine calls; or maybe all of the above!!

Sinikka CroslandWestbank, B.C.The brutal mass slaughter of an animal as exquisite as the horse is a sad reflection of our world's slow ethical progress. Some future day, we will deserve to guard the life and the spirit of the noble horse.

Johnine & GaileSeattle, WaIt's a travesty that society condones the butcher of the creatures of beauty that live to servce us.
Terry WattLake Havasu City, Arizona"Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy or beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent; there is nothing so quick, nothing more patient. England's past has been borne on his back. All our history is his industry. We are his heirs, he our inheritance. Ladies and Gentlemen - the Horse!"
Carla ConorinoPlano, TexasThe slaughter of any animal is brutal, tragic and unnecessary.
