I am doing a report and I need all the information on amish morgan horses. Thank you
It's not so black and white. Of course there is going to be abuse in all disciplines and breeds and in all communities. So singling out the Amish is inappropriate. There are those that don't treat their horses that great, but then there are those that treat their horses like royalty. Same as with non-Amish people.
I would change the focus of your report as it sounds like it is going to be stereotyping all Amish people that they treat their horses one way or the other.
I can't vote because I have not a clue on the subject.
Well, nice to meet you-!!
Duhh .same sentiment.
I have no idea how involved the Amish are with Morgans, I know in Ohio there are a lot of them who have Haflingers.
They are quite involved with Morgans, Saddlebreds, Standardbreds, "fancy" movers.
I have heard they are well trained.There have been a few high-profile abuse cases involving the Amish and also horses, but no breeds were mentioned that I saw.
This question is CRAP.
IN WHAT UNIVERSE IS ASKING RANDOM STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET AN ACCEPTABLE WAY TO GO ABOUT WRITING A REPORT.
Shame on you. No, seriously, I mean it. This is not how you go about writing any sort of REPORT. DO your RESEARCH. Proper, unbiased, official sources. Look at police reports, call country animal controls, do your dang RESEARCH.
This, this is not research, this is asking anonymous strangers on the internet for their opinion.
Nope nope nope.
Amish mainly use standardbreds as transportation. And no, they do not abuse their horses more than anyone else is capable of. Horses are not pets to them, they are their livelihood to survive therefore it benefits them nothing to not give them a good standard of care. I work with the Amish on a regular basis.
