This is happening every day
Roma was discovered by a kind English lady who knew she had to save her from starvation and, ultimately, death. Roma was left tethered and without food or water simply because of European horse passport regulations within Spain. Complex application makes it almost impossible for many horse-owners to gain a passport for their animal, though a large number of people fail to even attempt this. When a horse is lacking a passport it cannot be sold, transported, kept in a livery yard, be humanely put to sleep, or even sold for meat to the abattoir. When such a horse is no longer capable of being ridden, in Roma’s case having cancer of the frog, they are often abandoned, and left starving to death. Further updates will follow the operation.
