    there are no words to describe my anger

    Disgusting. I am also quite shocked how the 2 people arrested have been allowed bail.

    Mini Horse needs urgent operation...

    I have just seen this on West Country today. I too thought that the best option is surely to put the pony down. I felt so sorry for it watching it try and hobble around. :mad:

    No fair! Are they going to require passport to verify it or just the Aussie twang?!

    Science versus Old Wives Tales?

    Months trial

But it does worry me they'll just have a horse free for a month, or of course the horror stories of horses being out on loan and being sold on...

    Months trial

    Anything i should consider before letting my horse go for a months trial pre-sale? I'm guessing i'll have to give them the passport? I'll obviously photocopy it and keep copies myself.
