13. yes, but shipping them to Mexico to be slaughtered
inhumanely is not a good option either.

I think that if the slaughter is humane and the parts of the animal are used, then it is better than letting these poor horses starve to death.

My mind was changed about this after reading Temple Grandin who advocated for humane slaughter of horses to be allowed in the US. The description of the way the Amish treated their old horses changed my mind.

No one breeds horses for the production of meat. But by having a humane way to put them down and make use of what can be made use of is not a bad thing.
