Equine Victims of the Drug War

This was new to me

The Desert Springs Equestrian Center in Tucson takes in horses used by drug smugglers to pack in heavy bales of marijuana.

After arriving in the U.S., the horses are often abandoned to die in the desert.

Just one more of the many destructive by-products of prohibition.

Desert Springs nurses the horses back to health, then trains them and looks for adoptive homes.


Good for them! Here’s the Desert Springs Equestrian Center site.

The horse at right is Homer, one of the former drug trade horses you can adopt.

    With the midset of the Prohib government, it’s a wonder they’re not executed! At least, there’s compassion for animal involvement. We humans are lower on the pecking order, I guess.

    Desert Springs Equestrian Center, unlike those assigned to protect and serve, actually help the unfortunate folks caught in the middle of the drug war.

    +1 for them.
