Thankyou so so much to everybody who watched, shared or passed on Deposers story!! Almost 4000 people have watched his video and its all thankyou to everyone who passed on his tragic story! for those of you who dont know about Deposer here is the link to his video :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cASALvt8sVg

I have had so many emails from people asking about him, and saying that they have a different veiw on horse racing now, and were deeply upset about what happened to him. cry I have also been contacted by the racing stable over in the UK who previously owned him, (before he was sent to Honk Kong) saying that they were not happy with the video, and that is is bad for their reputation, and they are receiving hundreds of emails from people outraged about what they have seen. Although they were not the people who sent Deposer to the saleyards, this response has scared them a bit, and i bet they will think twice about what they do with their horses from now on. which is awesome!!
The release of this video also lead to the discovery of finding out the whole story about Deposer, i was contacted by the woman who placed Deposer in a new home after he was sent over from Hong Kong, apparently it was a 'loving home'..........which obviously it wasnt because they dumped him in a meat pen at the saleyards, apparently he was sent there because he was difficult to ride and kicked somebody in the ribs, neither of which mean that he deserved to end up at the knackery. As a horse who has been raced for most of his life, at a high level and only trained to run , Deposer would be difficult to ride when he was ridden differently as he wouldnt have understood what he was being asked to do, and supposedly kicking somebody in the ribs is not unusual for a horse- any horse could do this- and i am 100% sure that Deposer was not a nasty horse at all, he wouldnt hurt a fly.
So thankyou everyone for getting his story out there, it not only affected people, but revealed what happened to dear Deposer.
Rest In Peace Gorgeous Boy love you will never be forgotten love love love cry

Wow, that's great! You're certainly making a difference, keep up the good work!! Did they contact you implying that you remove the video? I hope this DOES damage their reputation! They're a racing stable, after all! Their reputation is built on the ignorance of others!

"Dear Rhiannon
We have recently become aware of the video about Deposer on YouTube which I presume you posted.  We are receiving more and more emails from people who are under the misunderstanding because of that video that we are responsible for what happened to him in Australia.  As you are aware from my previous email we sold him, back in the summer of 2009,  in good faith to a bona fide owner and trainer to continue his successful racing career in Hong Kong.  This fact can be easily checked and verified by anyone going onto the Racing Post UK website.
Unfortunately because of the video I am getting more and more emails, the latest accusing us of killing Deposer.  People watching the video assume wrongly that we discarded him to die in Australia which you know is absolutely not the case.
If you are responsible for this video campaign I would appreciate you making sure the facts are correct.  
We appreciate what you are trying to do, but we take our business and our horses welfare extremely seriously and to be accused of this totally untrue fact is devastating.
