Of those 7,100 plus horses, only 18 were documented as ponies.

38 were gray horses.  That translates into 1% of the horses Moore ships.

153 were documented as drafts, which is 2% of his shipping numbers.

The number of Thoroughbreds he’s shipping is significant.  He listed 800.  That amounts to 11% of what he ships.

What he does like is the big, healthy, beefy quarter horses.  And lots of horses listed in the “other” category, which is likely a lot of Standardbreds and Paints, breeds of good flesh and less bone.  The horses you never see on the broker owned pages.  Consigned to their deaths without a chance because they are healthy and will yield lots of good meat

The sobering note is, that these 790 pages of paperwork document the slaughterhouse deaths of 7,140 equines.

11% OF 7140 IS====785 HORSES.   THAT IS SAD AND THIS IS JUST ONE OUTFIT.

What's the solution?  I think we're all aware that some racehorses end up slaughtered.  I've yet to see a workable solution that spells out who will pay to support these horses

Many tracks have anti-slaughter policies. These need to be vigorously enforced, and the ones currently without them need to be brought on board.

Fund and support retirement/placement groups. There are many successful ones like our own Galloping Out program.

Pass the SAFE Act.

Race horses have published histories of receiving drugs that are banned from ever being given to food animals. They should never be going to slaughter in the first place.
