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.
Sincerely,
Ranch Manager

July 31st....

Just want to keep everyone up to date with the EU regulations. This article concerns Canada, the feasibility of enforcing these regulations, and what may conceivably happen come July 31st. Nothing we haven't talked about, but good information for those who are wondering. The idea of horses bred and raised for Slaughter is touched on, as well as the subject of how these regulations will affect the general well being of horses, which we've also discussed. Horses possibly going to Slaughter cannot be given many drugs. This will bring up many issues. Strangles is touched upon, and it is just one example of what we will be dealing with in the fight to end Slaughter once and for all. How many horses will now struggle with pain and disease? Time will tell, as it has in the past how we will deal with this issue. Interesting reading.
