Born to Be Hurt

Born to Be Hurt

It’s a line from the 1950s movie,  Imitation of Life, starring glorious Lana Turner.  Annie says this of her daughter, Sara Jean, who cannot accept that she is of mixed race, denies her Afro-American mother (Annie), and follows a self-destructive path until Annie, her mother, dies…much too soon and much too young.  “How,” Annie asks Lana, who plays a celebrated actress in the movie, “…how do you tell your own child that she was born to be hurt?”  On that note, I want you to view a video produced by Animals-Angels USA (hold on…you don’t know what I’m going to say yet) which gives an audio-video summary of what happens to horses once they’ve left our loving care. Unlike many youtube videos, it is not graphic, but rather, in only seven minutes, does give viewers a complete summary of what may, can, and often does, happen to beloved equine pets–unbeknownst to their loving, responsible owners when and if they must sell or give up or send to auction a cared-for equine.
