When you think of factory farming and breeding rings, you probably think of cows, chickens, and even dogs. Did you know that there are evil people who breed horses just to let them die? The reason? You can blame it all on horse races.
Every time a person bets on a racehorse, it supports breeding operations and the death of innocent colts. Horse racing is a multi-million-dollar industry, and breeders will do whatever it takes to get their mares to birth as many foals as possible.
A mare (grown female horse) can’t have a foal while nursing a newborn, and what these breeders do is beyond comprehensible. They keep the colts around long enough just so their mothers will produce milk and then bring in the hot-blooded thoroughbreds.
Not every horse can become a racehorse, so what happens to the nursing mare’s foals? They are literally born to die, but this woman is working hard to save these adorable babies.
Victoria Goss has been rescuing horses since she was 12, and started the Last Chance Corral in 2008 to rescue these colts that no one else wanted. This story is informational, sad, and inspiring. The world can be thankful that there are people like Victoria Goss here to save the day.
