How does Horse Slaughter affect you?

After seeing a picture of a dead horse in a chute, I wrote this. It aptly describes my feelings after viewing the picture:

As I saw your broken body lying in your own blood
My heart sunk to the bottom of my soul
Your beautiful, still shiny coat was smeared
with the last remaining essence of your life
The life that was taken from you needlessly and with no remorse
Your beautiful mane tangled and matted
Your beautiful face turned into the dirt
Your beautiful life snuffed out, as if it meant nothing
But, you are remembered
You are loved
You are and will always be, a beautiful horse
