I read that the guy was a meat dealer but surely if that was the case then he wouldn't have been starving them in fact quite the opposite the meat trade want animals which are well covered, so something doesn't ring true about the reports if he was a dealer surely the same would apply no one would have brought any of them, we also have several gypsy types around here, they wash their ponies in the river and all of them are in lovely condition also very well made, they deal amoungst themselves and know thier horses they may be rough people but I've seen more cases of cruelty and neglect amoung privately owned ponies/horses by so called horses lovers. We were at the New Forest sales ( on holiday ) and again they were all making far to much money for the meat men and were all nice ponies they are far more selective now about the stallions that they use and it was nice to see, plus because we had a wet summer last year they were all in good condition having had good grazing I was surprised how much they were making nothing went for less than 60guineas and they went up to 600g even the donkey foals made about 100 so maybe things are looking up all round.

The guy got them all from france and just collected them. He would bring them over and just leave them there. It was his 'hooby' if you like. He would sell some on etc but mainly just collected them. unfortunatly, when he went on his trip he didn't do anything for the ponies when he left. A few weeks before he was found out, he came back from one of his trips and found 27 dead. Idiot!!!

Oh Thanks I didn't know that the mail gave the impression that these were british animals destined for the european meat market and that he'd been trading this way for some time, but I thought no meat man would want a skin and bones horse, can you bring them in from France then without the proper paperwork, I wouldn't have thought any of these had papers, don't they get checked at the ports?

Sad words cannot express my empathy towards the horses
