I've heard some rumors about horses being abandoned there after the sale and the owners of the place neglecting to do anything with them, or trying to shoot them dead and failing. Is there any truth to this?

Noooooo idea. ive seen some pretty sad cases being run through there (i saw a real thin horse with a deformed or broken leg once) but the owners of those animals were the blame in those cases. imo, somebody needs to start taking names of some of those owners and turning them in. never heard about animals being abandoned though.
so sad

Somebody I know rescued a horse from there years ago that had been left behind. The horse had been standing there for a couple of days with no food or water, according to the owners of Triple W. There was evidence that he had been shot in the hip. No way of knowing who pulled the trigger, though.

Really? Tell that to the woman who called over there to ask if she could have the skinny, swaybacked horse standing out in the parking lot.

I have been going to this sale for several years, and I have saw some of the worse cases of animal abuse there. Don't get me wrong, I have also saw some good looking horses come through too. I have purchased several there and ride them every weekend. But I do know that there is a guy there who buys horses specifically for slaughtering and/or he will bring them to his sale, he has, and re-sale them. I pass his farm on a daily base, and see TONS of horses out in his fields w/ no grass or hay, just standing there. I have called numerous of people trying to get something done about this however it does not seem to work.

Where is this farm located? I'm a photographer so I wonder if I could get some photos.

Got a name or description of him? I'd like to ask him just how much he likes selling animals with diseases or that have been treated with medications known to cause cancer in humans for human consumption and just how much he likes transporting former pets and horses who ought to be euthanized on the spot across the country in a non-species appropriate trailer to have their throats slit by some retard in Texas.

Unfortunatley these people don't care about horses or how they are treated, they only care about the money!! You can join change.org and sign petitions there to help end horse slaughter in the US. Anyone who could at least sign the petitions is a help!!

I do know his name however, do not want to start no crap online about him. However I do know that his sale barn is on HWY 70 in Alexandria TN. You can also see his horses, located on the dekalb/wilson county line on HWY 70. I am not on here to cause problems, but something needs to be done to these people. I have saw these people dope these horses up so much, almost to the point they can not walk straight.

What you people need to understand is horses, just like cattle and hogs, are LIVESTOCK and all these people out here that think they have a great horse and raises a foal are gonna sell it for big money, when in reality there horses are no more than average at best now brings us to the problem of way to many horses and no one wanting them and all these people that think horses are like the family dog raise hell and sign petitions shutting down horse slaughter houses which is far more humane than what usually happens to them as for the owners of triple w i know personally and they would not abuse horses or shoot one and let it walk around what needs to happen is all you holyier than thou tree huggers shut the hell up and open slaughter houses for the LIVESTOCK

You stated a couple of facts, but lost your audience in all of your ranty, political bullshit. I don't care if it's a horse or a freaking midget cow. An animal with a broken leg has no business being loaded on a trailer for any reason whatsoever unless it's being taken to a vet. Period. Not only is it extremely inhumane to force any animal to endure that, it's illegal to transport an animal to market or slaughter when it is unable to bear weight on all four legs or is severely injured.

The fact that JimmyBob Jethro feels like selling his broken down trail mount for some beer money instead of "wasting him" putting a bullet through his head doesn't change it.

[horses] are LIVESTOCK
Livestock is any animal which was domesticated for the sole purpose of providing food, fiber, or labor. Dogs and cats are also considered livestock. Should we start slaughtering unwanted dogs and cats too instead of euthanizing them?

Horses are not an animal that we eat in this country. Get over it. Overpopulation does not justify slaughtering them here when we have vets all over the country who are willing to put them down for almost nothing. It also doesn't justify creating a market for contaminated meat and an incentive for retards to keep breeding their horses and tossing them out like garbage to make a quick buck.

Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

love this post. it cost me a mere $50 to have my gelding put down when he entered the end stage of pancreatic cancer and the vet offered to keep the body for disposal so I didn't have to figure out what to do with it but since I already had a place prepared to bury him, i declined the offer. i'm sure it would have been even less if i had expressed an inability to afford it but then again, if you can't afford $50 then you can't afford a horse and have no businesses keeping them.

Hippies like you wrecked the horse-meat industry in this country. No, we don't eat it here, but it's main-stay dietary staple in Easter Europe, widely consumed in Mexico, Cuba, and Canada, and was being exported to Japan and China before you hippies got the ban instituted back in '94. Every last one of these "pitiful creatures" you people are talking about that have been showing up at stock sales and just plain abandoned on the roadsides by the millions over the last 15 years since that ban is because of YOU, not irresponsible horse owners. They had a cheap, convenient, humane way of getting rid of them before that, you lunatics stuck your nose in and decided to create a logistical nightmare of old and lame horses intereferring with something you knew absolutely nothing about in the first place but wanted to "involve" yourself in because you thought you saw a pretty animal. And these vet euthanizations that you pretend are so "cheap," Skippy, no, they are NOT cheap. The vet most certainly WILL put down your ancient, decrepit Nag if you're willing to pay the $100 or so to do it, but you HAVE to bring the animal to THEM. Farm visits are not free, never have been. There's another $100. Since you hippies got your stupid slaughter ban passedd, though, that Nag you COULD have sold for $120 that would have been humanely slaughtered dropped down to $10 that very same year for a 12-14 year-old saddle-broke Mare (that was the national AVERAGE that year, and it has BARELY beun to climb back up now that your ban has expired, even though none of the three slaughterhouses that processed horses in the U.S. prior to that ban taking effect has gone back into the active slaughtering business yet.) What was it you told the OP? "Do not pass go? Do not collect $200?" Yeah, you're an infant. Leave the horse-trading business and the discussion of it to people who actually have experience with it. Or even better... put your money where your mouth is. You can go up to that horse sale on any given Teusday. You will see first-hand the destruction and disgusting conditions you and your ilk have created in the equine industry with your nonsense, BUY yourself one or two of these ancient nags and take care of them. Have them, "ahem," cheaply euthanized like you say. You can very easily pick up 2 saddle-broke 14-year-old mares for $20. They'll follow you right out to your trailer. Show everybody how it's done, Hoss! Or, you know... just STFU up about things you don't understand and keep your hippy tree-hugging animal-rights b.s. to yourself.
