We demand humane treatment of horses in Romania! It is not acceptable, that horses have ingrown bicycle chains as bridles, littered with purulent wounds,malnourished and up to the point of exhaustion "used".

Signed. How sad it is for those poor horses. It seems there is no end to the human abuse of animals, it just makes me feel so sad to think that humans are capable of all this abuse.

Definitely signed,thanks Cher. I'm having a hard time with that horrible image posted. Everyday i come across these blatant acts of unimaginable cruelty to animals and each time i have absolutely no understanding how someone can do this to any animal. I feel helpless.

how hard is it to be kind to animals especially the working animals who give so much back just to obey the master it is what animals wish to do please of is asked of them no matter the task even if in some animals it means death. OMG we need to look within our souls and reach a peace in order to find the peace we receive from what animals give back to us. Just because we are considered a superior race (due to higher intelligence) does not mean we cannot learn accept and treat animal all animals with respect and dignity as we would like to have people please be kind caring you will feel the soothing within if you would treat animals with the rights they deserve and not some much as that they are to be treated cruelly and abusively and thoughts that they can be replace. all GOD 'S creatures are equal and your hurt an animal child you have severed a part of humanity yourself

Romania, another Eastern European country that couldn't care less about any of its animals. There are NO welfare laws that are enforced. The reason so many horses are being 'disposed' of is that the government is trying to ban the use of horses in urban areas, this means their so-called owners are dumping them or killing them and sending the meat to be classed as 'beef' in the UK.

I wrote this for my horses and all horses
The Magick of the Horse

Many years ago 60 million to be exact a creature named Eohippus, the Dawn Horse

came up upon this earth and later, after millions of years evolved into the horse of today.

In times past when the veil was thin and the worlds merged and seemed as one

There was a creature that walked in both of these worlds.

They lived with faerie and human both and guided and aided all of those who befriended and mastered them.

Some were winged that flew the skies and brought flight to the clans, and some with horns of spiral energy did hold the light and guard the doorways to healing and life.

And those who were the bravest of all came to the humankind to serve.

For they knew they would be sometimes mistreated and slaughtered for showing the horrors of man.

These were the ones that were the oldest and the wisest of all.

They chose to come and communicate and teach people the lessons of the Heart.

For it is the lessons of the heart that make us whole and put us in touch with what is right and true inside ourselves.

Mirrors they became to us; they share our pain, our pleasures and our deepest secrets.

They comfort us as friends and carry us to far away places.

If we listen very closely we can hear their breath and if we look closer we can see our image in their eyes.

For they are the ones who love mankind and have come here to aid us.

Hear the beat of the hoofs resound in your body, feel the powerful, gentle presence.

Where? In your heart. From their heart to yours……... Heart to Heart.

If you go to the place where the Unicorns rest and the Pegasus graze you will see the white mare of the Earth People.

Their wisdom they will share with you as long as you are pure of heart and your intention is just

done. Does ANYONE understand the need or desire to be so cruel to any animal, anywhere? Humane treatment should be a given and not something decent human beings have to beg for to protect our animals from such attrocities.
