Tethering is no life for a horse, its cruel, often tormented by humans, often they get caught up in the chain/rope. A very lonely life without the company of other horses.also dangerous, often seen against a roadside. Often without sufficient food and water.This must be stopped.
Horses are not given the freedom of running away from something if they are scared, not able to get to shelter if they want to and not stretch their legs....this is an outrageous way of keeping horses. Shame on the people who do it! Shame on the people who allow this to happen on their land! This needs to stop now!
Because it is inhumane to be tethered around the neck with no shelter, without access to fresh water, no interaction with other animals, in one location for months/years. Like the beautiful white horse that has been tethered on a grass bank by the side of the A417 in Gloucester for 3 years. 3 years of constant traffic noise, no shelter from the heat or rain or thunder/lightening. Imagine that please for one moment. Just imagine.
