In Lampang, Thailand, around 400 ponies pull tourist carriages. The livelihoods of the owners depend on the ponies' ability to keep working.

OK I'm so livid that I'm about to blast off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In a quote from the story:
"However the neglect was not deliberate Ė owners had simply never been shown how to provide proper care for their ponies. There were no vets in Lampang with any specialist equine knowledge."

Who the hell do they think they are fooling, of course they can look at open oozing sores, lame feet, animals overworked and know that this is wrong. Any caretaker of an animal knows when there animal is not doing well. I will give them that they might not have known about the calcium and that since they have now been educated I would expect (Ha-Ha) that this condition would end. But decent treatment of a working animal and knowing it is suffering, every idiot knows that without vet education. They are just more interested in the money.
