How We Met

I was browsing on pmurescue.org when I stumbled across Popcorn #6. Sadly, I was too late. Popcorn was sent to slaughter on October 15, 2007. Nobody wanted him. His rescue gave him until the 15th to be adopted out. I would of taken this cutie pie in a heartbeat! But sadly, he went to slaughter in Canada. Please try to remember that every day horses like Popcorn are being slaughtered EVERY DAY! They face horrible deaths- they are shot in the head with a nail gun type device until they die! Please- I beg you to tell me what is so horrible about this baby that he was slaughtered? What is it about him? Why is it that he faced judgement in a slaughterhouse? Please- adopt a horse before you buy a fancy warmblood for a billion megabucks! Think of this face the next time you see your horse- Popcorn wasn't lucky enough to have ever lived in a home! Please try not to support slaughter just because it "controls the population". We are the problem! People breed their horses to pass along the traits and they don't realize that there are horses out there awaiting death in a chute at the slaughterhouse. Please- think about it!.

FROM SPIDERMAN
It's hard to believe that horses are still being slaughtered. Popcorn was so young, he never had a chance to show the world what he could be. How can people do this to a horse? Have a vote from Spiderman.

OMG that is so sad... I wish that kind of things did not happen, I wish someone adopted him. They should go instead to a big pasture in the country somewhere. Have a vote. But they also could be better off dead... But not to die like that though.

lol, thanks! i've been helping to bust some fakes! that poem is great! yes- im glad i could save Hope at least! here's a story/poem thingy i like!

Once a man was walking along a beach. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Off in the distance he could see a person going back and forth between the surf's edge and and the beach. Back and forth this person went. As the man approached he could see that there were hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.
The man was stuck by the the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.

As he came up to the person he said, "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and pick up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, "It sure made a difference to that one!"

Im making a difference to my little Hope and that's all that matters, i guess. One day ill have an Olympic type equestrian center. All of my horses will be slaughter rescues.

Come visit me, Hope, Popcorn- loving memory & Homeless Baby Filly.

Welcome to Horsechannel !
That's so horrible!I'm so sorry to hear that popcorn was slaughtered.Well,at least you can save hope!Here's a favorite poem of mine that I'm trying to share with as many people as possible: " All that you need is a horse" When your day seems out of Balance And so many things go wrong... When people fight around you.. And the day drags on so long... When Parents act like Children in-laws make you think "Divorce"... Go out into your pasture and wrap your arms around your horse. His gentle breath enfolds you, and he watches with those eyes, He may not have a PhD, But he is Oh,So wise!! His head rests on your shoulder. You embrace him Oh so tight. He puts your world in balance, And makes it seem all right. Your tears they soon stop flowing. The tension is now eased. The garbage has been lifted, and you're quiet and at peace. So when you need the balance from circumstances in your day... the best therapy that you can seek... Is out there eating Hay.......... ............ Author Unkown Also,if you're new on here I'd like to warn you that there are people here who take pictures of horses off of the internet or someone's website,make a fake profile of them,and claim for them to be their own!!It is very wrong,and we all need to work together to stop it.(If you are having problems with fakes,you can come to my page,and me and a few others will help you with a few them.)Always Remember:DON'T VOTE FOR FAKES!!!!
