IS NOT HELPFUL OR "RESCUE"
IT DIRECTLY FUNDS THE CONTINUED COMMODITIZATION, USE AND DEATH OF HORSES.
Why is purchasing a horse from slaughter (meat buyer) not helpful? Because as this simple graphic shows, by purchasing one horse, you are damning others to the very fate you are trying to take them from. Feeding a never ending cycle of breeding, use, death.
Those who buy horses and claim them to be "rescued" are totally delusional, and refuse to see their direct contribution to the problem they so vehemently rail against.
The real issue is not the treatment of horses, the issue is that they are considered "things" which are able to be used, sold and killed...whatever the "owner" desires. Their interests are of no importance, the "owner" decides everything for them... Treated well? I'm sure many are...but does this excuse treating sentient beings as "things"? It most certainly does not. No matter how you treat your slave, they are still a slave...nothing more than a table or chair, for you to do whatever you wish with...simple property....THIS is the issue.
Are you truly concerned about horses and other non human persons? Or are you more concerned with their continued use, and your benefiting from that use? Your wish is to make this use appear to be "kind" "beneficial" or "what is best" for the horses...However, It's very clear those who use horses for profit are not truly concerned with what is best for horses, or they would be against the root cause of all their suffering...their status as property.
So the next time someone says "oh it's ok, he's been RESCUED" about a horse strapped to a carriage...call bullshit...because that's all that is...
A bullshit excuse to justify profiting off the back of another, a smokescreen to cover continued use as something helpful...RESCUE is not taking a being from one use and using them a different way, RESCUE is removing that being from use, and freeing them from the status of being property.
