  3. That's a damn shame. I'm no Peta nut job, but that's a beautiful horse, as I'm sure the other 20 were. They need to figure this shit out or stop running em

  4. What is the matter with people that race horse? There is a special place in hell for those that abuse horses.

  5. I twisted my ankle on a curb, the doctor said my life won't be worth living. I will be put down soon. We should investigate all the curb deaths happening.
