Anonymous said: Have you ever heard of someone shooting their horse? What are your thoughts on the matter?
as in to put it to sleep? I’ve heard of people around here doing it.. I wouldn’t recommend it, since a horse’s skull is thick and if it’s not done correctly you’ll just cause more pain and panic. And you can’t shoot the heart cause you can miss, and it’s a slower more painful way to die. Euthanasia alone isn’t that expensive, it’s the disposal or cremation of the carcass that can run up the bill. I’ll have to check the price list tomorrow at the clinic, but I remember it said a certain amount of money per cc, and I was shocked how cheap it was. I understand if someone is too broke to pay for it or there’s an emergency and a vet can’t get there, but I’d rather see an animal be peacefully laid to rest with euthanasia rather than potentially suffering more cause someone doesn’t know where to shoot.
False, the American Veterinary Medical Association says a gunshot (larger than a .22) to the head is the most humane way to euthanize a horse. Pigs on the other hand have thick skulls and gunshot euthanasia is not recommended.
Literally my bosses words, “in theory yes that’s correct but someone has to be a darn good shot and know the proper location because you’ll just make the animal suffer more. Euthanasia is more humane if you don’t know where to shoot.”
Alrighty here we go!
This here is Dune.
He was a big ass horse found by a friend of mine out in the desert and he’s an awesome example of why you shouldn’t shoot a horse if you don’t know what your doing.
Dune was shot in the head with a .22. As you can see the bullet had no problem going through the bone so no its not a matter of their skulls being too thick, horses generally do not have super thick skulls. A well placed bullet to a horses brain is the quickest and most humane way of putting one down, BUT YOU GOTTA KNOW WHERE EXACTLY TO SHOOT.
Dune was shot for the most part, between the eyes, where a lot of people would think you are supposed to. However, as you can see, that is NOT where a horses brain is. It’s much higher up. This horse likely died a very slow painful death, with lots of thrashing as there is no second bullet hole to suggest they got another shot in to finish him off.
The CORRECT way to shoot a horse is to imagine an X drawn from the ears to the eyes, and shoot right in the center of that X, which would line up perfectly with the brain. Like this
I personally believe that everyone who works with or owns horses should know how to do this, because you are not always going to have fast access to a vet, and in a lot of cases, like a broken leg for example, it would be much easier on the horse to be put down in the field and not have to wait hours for a vet.
Also important to note: Sometimes a gunshot is preferable to euthanasia because if the horse is to be left in the field, the sodium pentobarbital solution stays in their body and can leak into the ground or poison scavengers that feed on it. It doesn’t become inert. A euthanized horse (or cow or donkey or whatever) essentially becomes a giant bag of poisoned meat. While there is some concern over animals and birds ingesting lead bullets, it’d be secondary to the amount of damage possibly caused by 1,000+ pounds of toxic bait. If you’re going to euth a large animal, you had better be prepared to have it properly removed.
take me to imats ny 2015
leave me there
If I’m wearing makeup do not
- Tell me boys will like me more if I wear less makeup
- Tell me boys prefer natural beauty
- Tell you don’t like makeup
- Tell me I’m wearing too much/too little
- Ask me who I’m trying to impress/if I’m trying to impress a boy
- Ask me if the reason why I wear makeup is because I think I’m ugly or insecure
- Give me any kind of negative, unsolicited opinions about what I do with my face
But apparently saying that isn’t obvious enough. Let me clarify.
- I will still appreciate if you give me a compliment.
- I will still appreciate it if you give me constructive criticism on my makeup (EX: Suggesting a lipstick that would better suit my skin tone)
