unfortunatly this is happening everywhere around ireland, horses are being dumped in random fields and just left to fend for themseles, farmers are being asked to lock their gates and most fairs are being cancelled due to dumped horses

Huh! Fancy that that. Like I have heard of racehorse owners doing it here, thats how they got one of mine Delta. She had a succesful local career then one day it all went pear shaped, we dont know how and they just dumped her in a feild by a highway and dissapeared back to England.
