SIIIGH. WIDE FEET are good; NARROW feet (tiny feet) not so good. I am not talking about the width of these horses feet I am talking about the LENGTH - their heels are extremely long - maybe this is a breed thing (I doubt it).

As for the culture card sweetie, Chinese Foot Binding was a cultural thing as is female circumcision, honour killing of women etc etc...does that mean these things are OK?

And Shropshire girl, yes the terrain looks great and would be if the horses were able to run freely in it. I was talking about the fact they seem to spend their entire lives tethered.
Merlot, they're tied during the day. Just like night time stalling really. And pretty sure they won't be running freely in 45C heat...

Thank you for clarifying that Evilhorseofdoom.
I have a real THING against tethering animals of any kind, we see it a lot in the rescue work we do.
Cheers

This forum is one of folks who care about horses. No doubt about it. But , we have to accept that not everyone has the ability to care for horses in the way we might think right. But, if you understand some of the environment that the horses live in, you would know that they are doing just fine.

There are horses in other parts of the world who would be better candidates for pity.

Also, it's not really fair to be judgemental of how other people care for their animals if they themselves struggle for their daily needs.
