In this photo taken on Monday, April. 8, 2013, Part of the bridle of a ''Pura Raza Espanola'' or Pure Spanish Breed mare belonging to breeder Francisco Jose Rodriguez is seen on the ground at "La Yeguada de Cuatro Vientos" ranch in Almonte, in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. Barring an unlikely reprieve, Mesa' purebreds will be turned into horse meat for export come July. They are victims of a wrenching economic downturn that has wiped out fortunes, turned housing developments into ghost towns and left more than a quarter of the population out of work.
