thank you toonice ,sue is amazing she can pull an rescued animal back from the brink of death ,I have seen her sleep in the stalls when a rescue has come in ,half starved to death ,and on the brink of collapse ,And remember that sue took in up to 150 PNU foals each year ,they were always very sick and un-touched by human hand ,she saved most of them and HALTER BROKE each one and had most leading on a rope before they left ,she would spend hours gentling the crazed foals who were scared to death of people ,got a halter on each one ,ANd also if sue did not take them ,they were headed for Mexico as veal ,where they are hung by their back leg ALIVE ,and their throats cut ,there are graphic pictures of this on the internet ,

just for reference, friend of sues, veal is baby cow not horse and generally horses are shot in the head and put upside down to drain the blood, it's most of the other animals who are actually killed while upside down, although yes, some of them are paralyzed instead of killed when they are shot. Sue was very knowledgeable yes, but I know for a fact that when my friend and I left with out horses the ones who were there did go straight to the slaughter auction.

Maybe we all need a lesson on farming and agriculture and slaughter? Its amazing how people know nothing about their food. Yes, veal is baby cow. No, horses do not have their throats cut to die, yes their throats are slit though. No, horses are not shot in the head. They have an electric bolt jolted into them, similar to the concept of the electric chair. The bolt enters the skull and fries their brain to minimize the pain or error.

Unfortunately, we can not regulate how this happens anymore because too many people decided it wasn't appropriate. Now, it's done in Mexico and Canada where we have no inspectors assuring that they are in the category of 90% dying humanely.

Mind you, Dick supported his share of slaughter houses in his time. I'd bet that hes sent more animals to slaughter houses than any other dealer in the state. Yes...dealer.

I can't believe that there have been no posts for awhile. Does this mean he is finally out of the horse business - boarding business? I do see that he is selling pigs on craigslist. I have not been by the place in quite some time and was just wondering.

Actually I saw an ad on craigslist on March 9th under Family Farm has 2 stalls available. It sounds like it may be their place. Not sure.

I thought it was now considered cruelty ,if farm animals can not get into shelter ,can not imagine animals out all the time in sub zero weather ,and all the snow and no shelter

U know i beg to differ, & yes dick & sue are about the biggest criminals i have ever met.
i have met allot of nice horse people since then, & i havent even came close to meeting anyone like dick and susan since?
my buddy and I purchased two horses from Dick and Sue back in April of 2006. A big brown and white paint and a big black and white paint. Both were draft mix. We still own these horses today. The are the most well behaved horses at the barn for eight years now. I can't say much about Sue or Dick because I never met either. They were always nice on the phone. I told Dick what we were looking for. He emailed me pictures of the two horses and we decided we wanted them. When these horses arrived down here in Louisiana they were the most beautiful two horses we could have imagined and still are today. Exactly what we wanted. Sounds like we missed all the drama but got two great horses.
also have horses

Over a period of a year ,my friend and I bought a total of 4 foals from sue ,We still have 2 of them ,I am a trainer so once they were old enough I trained all of them up to walk trot canter ,and sold two for a nice profit ,both horses are competing ,one in dressage ,and one in hunt seat ,all 4 are wonderful horses ,the 2 we have will never be sold ,Sue was great ,sometimes the barn was messy but never really dirty ,I also was present when sue halter broke one of my babies, it took a few hours of incredible patience and kindness ,I will always be grateful my horses are part of my family
