I had filmed this before I saw the video that I posted yesterday.
I’m not crazy about the audio quality here. It was one of those moments where I had this filly out and I had the urge to answer a question while I was thinking about it. I will try to improve this next time.
I also wish I had used different phrasing that ‘beat on’. I do use this phrasing because I want to instill a disgust strong enough to make people be proactive. The unfortunate truth is that if a horse goes as far as the horse in yesterdays post ‘Dangerous Horses’ humans are not left with many options. Yes, gelding is the obvious option, but even that will not completely undo the unhealthy disrespect that is present.
Please, please, please help prevent these problems by starting young.
