I'm not normally one to get involved in these things but this is just dissgusting and if I could find out who they were I'd string them up! I think they are near me in 61, but those of you with horses on loan make un-announced visits as much as you can !

How terrible - why on why do people do this…

I’ve found her elsewhere and emailed her.

The thread has now been pulled. So I don’t know if Tillyann got my message or not.

Absolutely! Such a tragic tale, but sadly not the alone, I had to rescue a horse that was out on loan only 18 months ago, people talk the talk, but do they walk the walk? :(((

Unfortunately all kinds of things happen in people's lives, they behave bizarrely as a result and even more unfortunately, it is often the poor animals who suffer.

Years ago I put my pony out on loan whilst at Uni, she went to a pony club recommended family. Everything was fab for two years, then I suddenly got a call to say could I collect here asap. She'd been turned away and not ridden for ages and although physically ok, was clearly a bit put out. Turned out the marriage had failed and the mother was mid-breakdown. So whilst of course I'm not excusing animal neglect in any shape or form, I can see why it happens.

I've joined to ask her for the name of the loaner. We've already come across someone who did the same thing to a horse last year. Poor poor horse.

There's little that can be done to prosecute unless the owner brings charges, but knowing a name might help us save a horse in the future.

I have no comprehension of why people would take an animal on loan simply to neglect it.
