You could always slaughter it and feed it to the hogs or use it as fertilizer..


I’m guessing that would be the reason an old or lame horse was considered to have inherent value. Because you could always use it for fodder.

I was pretty drunk last night, sorry if I was a dick. I can't remember what you said.


Lol no harm no foul bro,

I made a crass Confucius joke, and then thought better of it, it was mildly amusing but I'm sure it was a t&c violation.

We are good bro


Respectfully,
