Great sorrow for the horses

Dear Editor:

It is with a heavy heart that I write this.

A few weeks ago approximately 45 of the West Bench horses were rounded up. Thankfully some of the horses and foals were sold to caring homes, but many were sold as bucking stock and the

remaining unsold horses were shipped to slaughter.

For reasons I will never understand, this sale was not advertised or announced in any way. It seems that the whole event was mostly a secret with only a few people told.
