All these dead horses my friends and I are responsible for, had to clamber over a pile of them this morning - just to get to me Range Rover - yes I really do drive one.
And at last, you admit it you think drowning horses at Appleby is OK.
I live and work with horses I am not ill-informed - you are.
You just want to tar everyone with the same brush because someone may question whether a so called tradition has outlived its sell-by date. These things happen, what was once a cute tradition is now a cruel and distasteful practice no longer suitable for the modern world we live in exactly the same as children up chimneys, bear baiting, bull baiting and more recently fox hunting. The sooner we put an end to this, along with cock fighting, dog fighting and badger baiting the better for all, or maybe you think those are traditions worth preserving as well because it part of their 'culture'.
You and your traveller friends are just going to have to accept it and move on.
