We like horses. We don’t own one, we just like them – especially when they’re alive. So when we read really sad stories by owners who’ve had their horse poisoned by well meaning members of public, or just people being ignorant and inconsiderate, that upsets us.
If you are out walking, resist the temptation to feed them. More often than not they are fine. You could end up feeding them something that could do them a lot of harm.
If you’re a dog owner, like us, take your black poo bags home. We read a heartbreaking account recently where two horses, when autopsied, were found to have tons of black poo bags in their stomachs (apparently they are attracted to some of the ingredients in dog food that get passed through). Please take your poo bags home or dispose of them carefully.
