Grimmy Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? (244* d) RE: Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? 19 Jun 07

Ruth, I keep producing the evidence you demand - and you keep ignoring it. THREE documented horse deaths in the last two years and you still go on about an 'isolated incident'.

If there's one good thing to come out of all this, it's that the drowning story has gone around the world - and hopefully will shame the authorities into acting to prevent such an horrific act from re-occuring. They have stood on the sidelines for far too long.

If anyone really really wants cast-iron proof of horse cruelty (including deaths) at Appleby over a long period of time, then I will obtain it. It will take a while - I have people and organisations to contact (the only reason why more incidents haven't been revealed now is that the Westmorland Gazette has not digitised its past issues).

But, for those in denial, I promise you, I promise you that I will produce evidence that horses have been killed at Appleby Horse Fair year after year after year.
