let's hope none of these horses end up on the truck to mexico......... SO many race horses that don't make it in the races, end up going to slaughter.... please visit www.tbfriends.com This man does a wonderful work and rescues as many TB off the slaughter truck as he can.

Thanks Trotter, I was just talking about that movie yesterday with a group of people.

Great post Bobbi -- there are other organizations as well who are trying to help horses who can longer race. They are beautiful animals who deserve the best when they retire.
