Dregs of the horse society
Good Gawd! The sick things that people find entertaining. It is truly concerning that people can participate, actively or passively, in “events” such as these and enjoy the fear of animals. Because that’s about this boils down to! People sitting on their asses and watching petrified and panicked babies wheel and dash around a track. I almost think the people watching are worse than those participating – at least those participating are likely motivated by money (keep in mind I said “almost” – they can all go to a special place in hell as far as I’m concerned). What’s the motivation for the people in the stands? Other than to see foals run around scared out of their minds?
It would not surprise me if these foals were traumatized for life in some fashion. And the lucky few who escape unscathed, well they get to go home with the as*bleep*s that entered them in the “race” in the first place, really not that lucky after all.
I nominate, at minimum, all participants for King of the Douches status, with a side of man-berry shears.
