Think about the Grand National
By star2sparkle | Friday, April 13, 2012, 16:39
Please don't bet on the Grand National tomorrow. It is a proven cruel
and barbaric sport and needs to be banned. The race is deliberately
hazardous and too much of a challenge for most horses. 20 have died
since the year 2000 and many others have been slaughtered because they
have been bred to compete and then don't make the mark. This isn't even
mentioning the injuries that horses sustain.
Please, please think before betting. I bet through ignorance a few years
ago and then was mortified at what I learnt. If I had won I knew I
would give it away to a horses charity.
If you love animals, then you will appreciate that this race is terribly cruel entertainment; designed only to make money.

to look after our beautiful horses and save them from suffering and
