Eight Belles, Kentucky Derby

Has anyone posted up a thread about the Filly that had to be put down at the Kentucky Derby after she broke her two front ankles?

I haven't seen anything on here about it. Just curious about what you all ranchers and property owners with animals think about what happened.

I personally am SICK AND TIRED of all the P.E.T.A. bull crap. I read today where they think the jokey should be arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
Obviously it is a tragic occurrence, however the horses are bred for this particular purpose.
I was leaning towards perhaps some sort of genetic shortfall in the bone structure of the horse, since she collapsed during the cool off and not during the hard running of the race.

Any thoughts?

PETA is rediculous. Animals were put here for the sustainment of humans. I'm not saying it is ok to abuse animals but the humane thing to do was to put the horse down instead of making it go through all the surgeries and whatnot that would have happened.

I mean these are people that say having an animal as a pet is bad. Liberalism at its finest I say.

I am not so sure that it is wisdom or just common sense. But both seem to be lacking in our general population now a days.

Isn't that a FACT!
They (vets) said they could not fix her because both legs were broke, taking away a good one to lean on. If the horse broke only one, then they could have worked on it since she would have had a good "leaner" leg to carry the weight.

I agree with the bumper sticker

I LOVE ANIMALS, THE'RE DELICIOUS!!!

From a person that has been around working horses most of my life I can garentee that no one was more devistated than the jockey and the trainers about what happened to that filly. When you are working with horses they become more than an animal. They are your coworker and a friend.

i can't believe for a second that horse was abused in any way. i'm sure there are some race horses that get abused just like anything else. there are people eho abuse there own kids. in all actuality that horse probably had a better life than most of us do. it's sad it happened but they did the right thing.
