Throwing my two cents in...

I think you are both right. There needs to be a humane way of euthanizing coupled with effective birth control. The bolt is a sick process. We have had to put enough horses down, that a 22 to the head works great. When we were kids, the dog food plant was where we took them. About $200 later, our horse was put down right in front of our parents and without any pain or fear. As a child, I understood that it was necessary and trusted that it was okay. I cannot watch the videos of horses in the slaughterhouse now, or being trucked with broken legs. It needs to be local and it needs to be easy. PETA, and other animal rights activists have made it more difficult to do the right and easy thing. On a side note....I would not want to be living in Colorado right now with all the crap that is taking place up there. Activists stealing chickens from small farms, etc. It is ridiculous....
I bust mine...so I can kick yours!!
