Horse Welfare Factoid
The cost of boarding, feeding and caring for a horse starts at about $2,400 a year. According to the Humane Society, many horses end up at auction, and, ultimately, in foreign slaughterhouses, because their owners didn’t understand the responsibility, cost, or time involved in caring for them.
“The winter months are particularly bad for neglected horses because they are not able to graze on pasture and may not be fed adequate amounts of hay in its place,” said HSUS. “These horses are often shipped to auction for sale to the killers.”
Here at Swingin’ D Horse Rescue, we see an increase in horses needing homes in winter months, and an increase in people seeking to adopt as temperatures rise and pastures green.ย
