Hi <<First Name>>!
WELCOME TO DAY TWENTY-SEVEN!
Kym's advice for day twenty-seven:
Horse trainers and jockeys say 'we love our horses and they are well looked after'. Is this true? Is horse racing inherently cruelty and immoral?
It certainly is. Of course people involved in this shockingly cruel industry would say that the horses are looked after, because sadly they have spent many years convincing themselves of this and maintaining their speciesist views.
Horse racing has perhaps the most 'glamorous' image of all so-called animal 'sports' . It is so alluring to many people that major race-meets such as the Melbourne Cup are even 'celebrated' with public holidays. Socialites spend thousands on designer outfits, the champagne flows, and millions of dollars are gambled on the outcome of races. But what is the life of a racehorse really like? And what of the thousands of horses that fail to 'make the grade'?
TODAYS ASSIGNMENT: Spend ten minutes and find out more about the reality of what goes on behind the scenes, and how spent horses are treated as 'wastage' by this cruel industry. Heres a great place to get some info: http://www.animalsaustralia.org/issues/horse_racing.php
