My friend back east recently rescued a Quarter Horse mare from an auction. She was going to slaughter, and was only 10 years old! She had holes in her stomach and wires dangling down outside her belly! She was being used by a company and she would be periodically shocked and they would "watch her to see how her muscles responded to the shock!" It was a huge drug company that had her. Now, she is out on my friends 40 acres with other rescued horses and she is coming around to understand that all humans are NOT bad. The vet has told Susan that to remove these wires is to shorten this mare's life, so they leave them in. It really boggles my mind that people do this to animals, especially with all the computer advancements they are making these days, you would think someone could design a robot or computer to take the place of these unfortunate animals.
