The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

I re­cently cried through a horse sale, hop­ing that a gen­er­ous stud owner would buy my four-year-old thor­ough­bred and give her a good life as a brood mare. While she was the sec­ond-top priced horse sold that day, it dev­as­tates me to read about the horses un­der a re­serve of $400 that may have been bought to be slaugh­tered and sold over­seas as a del­i­cacy (Pad­dock to Plate 17/7/10). It angers me to think that our govern­ment sup­ports cul­tures that eat horse. If I had the money, I would out­bid ev­ery­one on the lower-priced horses and take them to a sanc­tu­ary in cen­tral Aus­tralia.
