I thought that too when I saw it :(

Absoluetly horrific - I have no other words for it.

To make her walk on her coronet band... :(

Banned from keeping equines for ten years? Should have been for life. And as for a fine of £10000 - should have been ten years in prison....

Absolutley no excuse for the poor animal to suffer like that!

Why was something not done sooner?
FFS - I nearly brought my dinner back.

The woman should have been jailed.
You all managed to say what I was thinking but all I could do was feel so sorry for Florence. Poor girl. How on earth did this happen. She was only 6!! :(

You've said exactly what I was thinking. Why should she ever be given the chance to have another horse? 10 years is nothing. Poor, poor horse

Good grief. I worked for the RSPCA for nearly 10 years and I have seen some seriously awful things but I have just sat and watched that with my hand over my mouth.

I really do hope that sick excuse for a human being realises what she has done and that the local horse community keep reminding her of it.

Disgusting.

Poor, poor horse.

It was so horrible I couldn't even breath. It did't help that her face was so like my Pickle pts in July. I know she had not had an easy life, but compared to this!! That poor. poor mare.

I am totally and utterly horrified... and lost for words..... and especially due to the owners location.

Do we know where Florence was kept? I can only guess that the mare was kept away out of site. RIP little Girlie.

What a waste of a beautiful young horse. That is heartbreaking. How did that witch of a woman get away with it for so long? Was the horse hidden from view all her young life?
