Don’t be a victim of rogues…

Some sad stories and good advice from World Horse Welfare this week- be careful whom you sell/loan your horse to! WHW have had reports of people selling/loaning their horses only to find out that they have been put to slaughter. One of these cases is that of Jemma, who gave her beloved horse to a trader with the promise of continued contact if rehoming was a possibility. Jemma later found out that her horse had been slaughtered. Police will not prosecute and but it is because of cruelty like this that WHW welfare exists- to be a body that can push for new legislation, and can support horses and horse owners everywhere. Please donate to support their amazing work. For the full article.

Woman banned after cruelty to more than 20 of her horses

Stories like this are really what motivates me to support World Horse Welfare. A 65 year old woman has been banned from keeping horses for life after keeping horses in horrendous conditions for an extended period of time. Horror stories in this case include keeping 12-15 decaying carcasses of horses in a shed, horses being indiscriminately bred and starved, some to death.  World Horse Welfare has rescued the horses and some have already been re homed. To keep supporting this kind of work, please Donate! (Full Aritcle)
