THIS HAS TO END

Dartmoor is a killing field of the innocents.

Each autumn the ponies are rounded up, foals are separated from their mothers and are sold at markets in Tavistock and Chagford.

800 foals were sold for a pittance and slaughtered in 2012.

This year, numbers were around 600, those which didn’t make the required £10.50 were shot for zoo fodder.

Baby foals of 4 months old can be slaughtered on their own.

If they are younger, and many often are, they are killed alongside their mothers.

Mares are also killed, including the pregnant ones.

This has to end.

The meat lorries are present at the sales and foals are loaded straight from the sale pens and onto the lorry.

The hides of culled ponies being also crafted into ‘wild pony’ drums used in retreats that ‘capture the rhythm of life’.

There is no excuse for this slaughter when a managed breeding programme could be started.

Let these beautiful, iconic creatures live out their lives, wild on the moors.

Where they belong.

      You have commented elsewhere on this blog. Always with vitriol and spite. The IP address you use is the same. Your comments will remain so people can see them. I have deleted your other comments as I felt it was unfair that my readers would be subjected to torrents of your abuse.

      My decision.

      My Responsibility. 🙂

    Yeah, well why would I post the above message incriminating myself as being the person who hacked into the Chris Spivey blog? I’d be more than a bit of a schmuck to do that, wouldn’t I? Ergo, the post saying that I did was obviously not posted by me, but someone trying to hang the blame on me for doing something that I didn’t do. It’s your blog – but can you live with someone having a different opinion than you? Obviously, no. When somebody tries to expose holocaust denial for what it is the Nazis arguments and ‘excuses’ for their murder of tens of millions of people and the pathetic ad reductio numbers ‘game’ that they play do not stand up to the evidence that is plain as the nose on your face, pal. That’s the real reason you don’t publish my comments: precisely because they totally demolish the crappy lies that you put up on this ‘blog’ – not because they contain ‘vitriol and spite’. If they contain ‘vitriol and spite’ then you could always give a few examples to prove it. But there aren’t any, are there? – self-proclaimed ‘warrior for truth’. Don’t make me laugh already!

      Again, this is the same IP address as the previous posts. You will be saying next that you were ‘hacked’ and miraculously regained control of your account to post the next comment fifteen minutes later. I can publish images of your IP address if you prefer, but I prefer to let you defeat yourself with your own stupidity. That was the last comment you post here ‘Missy’ you have had ample opportunity to bring something constructive to the table.

    Okay. So it’s your choice not to remove the comment posted at 5.51am by someone pretending to be me. Whether or not that equates to libel will be a matter for my solicitors. If I were you I’d be on the safe side and remove it, please.
