If I said the words “factory farming’ to you, you may think of puppy breeding rings. Shockingly however there are actually people in the world breeding horses just to let them die.
The reason the do this terrible act is all linked to horse racing. Every time someone breeds a race horse, lots of other horses suffer as a consequence. Horse racing is a BIG money business so breeders do what it takes to get their mares (grown female horse) to give birth to as many foals as possible.
As the mare cannot have a foal while nursing a newborn, the evil breeders keep the colts around long enough until their mothers produce valuable milk and then bring in the hot-blooded thoroughbreds.
Obviously not all the foals are good enough to be racing ponies and devastatingly, any that don’t make the cut are literally born to die.
The video below shows the story and efforts of an amazing woman called Victoria Goss who has been rescuing horses for most of her life. She started the Last Chance Corral in 2008 to rescue these babies that no one else wanted.
