“The greatest deterrent
to freedom are men and women of zeal, well-meaning, but
without knowledge or understanding.”
~Justice Louis Brandeis~

"People are so quick to defend their own agendas, but they so often fail to realize we must protect the rights of all if we are to continue to have any rights of our own."

Ranch meaning, in general, any real world dwelling probably not involving full care board. Kind of a rural voice of real horse owners, trainers, traders, auction owners, rodeo contractors, etc.. all of us who have taken a verbal beating and called greedy ass hats. Back at the Ranch contributors, moderators, subjects, and so on, are pro-horse, pro-owner, and pro-slaughter.
Back at the Ranch was formed by a group of like minded horse / livestock owners. It is a place for us to try to educate, a place to vent our frustrations with the current equine industry, a place to share humor and snark, and in general try to open the eyes of the public who seem to be anti-agriculture.We do have a section for comments of course, and if you would like to email us you can do so directly or through the contact us form. We like to hear from our readers. I hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as I enjoy managing it.

Another Day, Another "Rescue"

Eleven horses seized

I know a lot of people want to continue to work on ending Slaughter in America. But what do we do about this trend? Another "Rescue", more starving horses, and we haven't even gotten into Winter. What can we do to stop the hoarding and enabling? How can we educate those who continue to support these "Rescues" even after criminal charges are filed against them? How do we point out the "Rescues" headed down the same road when there are those who will support them no matter how many horses they take in, or how high their maintenance bills for those horses rise? How do we learn that saying "NO" is sometimes kinder than the "save"? Sorry, I'm just so tired of seeing walking skeletons-made with "love".

Two arrested in case of alleged animal cruelty

From what I am reading in message forums there may well be much more to this.
