In peterborough, uk many cobs are left on the side of roads.
Where I live ther are many fields were you can walk your dog and an allotment near by but in the last 2months 5 cobs have arrived with seat blet round there necks instead of headcollar and rusty metal chain about 4 metres long, in my opinon I think that it's cruel and unfar to the horses.
My friend and I a couple of weeks ago rang up the rspca because these two horses were a mess badly matted fur, very tight headcollar, and in the field was barbed wire, metal and wood post on the floor with barbed wire on they had no water, no proper horse food e.g chaff, just grass they were badly overweight. The horses got taken away. But 5 more have just come, theres buckets of water in there field but out of reach so everyday me and my friend move the bucket closer so they reach them, last week it reached 27degress, and these poor horses had water but not near them so we moved it closer, they lapped it down so fast we filled them up again.
What does eeryone else think of tethering I think it's cruel and unessasary.
