Moving the horse into your house

I hope you guys outside the UK can see this. It's one woman's way of finding shelter for her horse.

BBC News - Horse moves into owner's home

Here's the written version of the story in case the video doesn't play in your country: BBC News - Woman moves pony into her semi-detached Lewis home, although it's not nearly as good as the video.

I wonder what the whole story is. The BBC doesn't give us the most in depth reporting here.

I once had a foal in my house (well, on a closed in back porch), because we were bottle feeding her after the mare didn't have any milk. I don't think I would put a full sized horse in my house. Now, if I could build a tunnel to the barn, so I could not have to get out in bad weather, that would be nice!

Kind of eccentric.. But atleast the pony looks happy and healthy. I don't have volume on my computer but I like when the guy is talking and the pony is just standing on the deck in the background haha

if the horse is healthy and there is no health hazardes in the house keeping in mind constant mucking out of stall area is done,i don't see why this is a problem. Yes eventually can lead to health hazards for human if theyy don't keep up on cleaning, but for a long period of time farm animals would sleep in the houses with there owners.

I'm not a big clean freak... but I can't stop thinking about the horse pee on the floors!! If she has carpet or wood... ewwww.. xP

But I agree that it's not horse abuse... just weird.
