That must have been one big trailer to carry 14 horses. That must have been one horrific, gruesome accident. I'm sure the emergency crews had to put some of the horses down.

Once again, some things are better left unsaid.

I pray that this gentleman and his horses have a found a quiet and respectful place with our God in Heaven.

Some people have nothing better to do than write stupid comments on here.
I have been to see the chuckwagon racing at the Calgary stampede, and it was a great performance.
I'm sure he will be missed a lot.
Prayers to the family.

To say the least, the lack of details in this story leaves one wondering. What a loss.

I had no idea, that animals went to heaven. Did not know they had souls.

Some things in the Bible are figureative(sp). Trust me, there is not a white horse in heaven tied to a post waiting to go...

I know it's difficult to understand what dose and dose not have a soul, when you do not have one of your own.

Who cares about whether they go to heaven, for heavens sake!!!!!

Years ago some Indians driving drunk hit a horse, and my Dad was the tow truck driver then, and what a mess that was. Could not even imagine how gruesome this was to see and to take care of.
Too bad about the guy, and the horses. I think they are a beautiful animal.

Beheading on bus is compared to animal abuse because an animal did it, no alleged about it.
