    It is a very common practice, to tether horses out like that, in England and Ireland. This especially among some Gypsies, who often graze their horses on roadsides or even the land of others. Never seen one with that kind of string, but have seen tons with neck collars on and long lines to a stake.

    In the '70's, I knew an Arabian Horse breeder in the US, who also used to stake his horses out in a similar fashion. I never liked the practice and wouldn't dare use it on one of my horses, but the Arabian breeder's horses, never seemed to get into trouble.

    It is common in Dublin, in the rougher areas of Ballymun, Finglas, Tallaght and Mullhuddart ... where the horses are "jockeyd" by young lads in tracksuits and sneakers - no saddle and they just gallop around the fields. There was an irish program made several years ago called "Diarmud's pony kids" which took 5 of these kids and gave them proper lessons and equipment.

    Looks like fungal scarring to me.

    Their tethering "string" is also what they are using for a "halter" in the other pictures

    Horses are tethered like that all the time here in NZ, you will be driving along the main highway and see peoples little bush ponies tethered on the big grass verges that back onto forest, especially when there is no grass around on their actual property (like now). My miniature gets tethered all the time (mind you, she has an actual halter on and is always in a place she can be seen) because she can't be on grass 24/7 like my big guys (she foundered just after we rescued her) and I can't paddock her for an hour a day because she is like houdini, fences won't hold all 37" of her
    Tethering doesn't bother me so long as the horse is able to be seen where it is tethered and isn't stressed out over it

    Both of them are train wrecks, but that colt's hind legs scare me.
