I know this has nothing whatsoever to do with dogs or Doodles but I am so ashamed of what goes on in Tennessee with the beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses. You may have seen them - they are often at UT games and other sports events - on show. They are known for their high spirited gait. they are not racing horses.
But that gait comes at a price - a terrible price to the horses.
This industry has been investigated before at a local level, but now the HSUS has done a major bust, including busting the most well known trainer.
Recently a $10k award was given to someone for busting the abusers (takes a lot of proof and you got to get thru the trial part and get the abusers convicted - tough to do).
Despite what you think of the HSUS (and many don't like them, I know), but only they had they manpower and money to do this investigation and make this bust.) Hopefully, the future will be better for these beautiful horses.
to hear about something like this. Abusing a poor, innocent, trusting animal for personal gain. Those people should be subjected to the same abuse that they confer on these animals! How can they do... more
not Doodle related, but the love and care of any beautiful animal is something I think we all can relate to. These are gorgeous animals and the abuse needs to stop now! PS I'm not even a horse person ... more
