The PA Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? (244* d) RE: Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? 28 Jun 07


The Snail:

My sincere apologies for the bad timing of postings. My posting was not directed at you at all. My posting was in reply to Ruth Archer, and never intended as an attack on your goodself.

The second pony was found dumped in a field. When the police tried to trace the 'owners' they had disappeared. Wherever this creature had been in the meantime it had not been an enjoyable experience, the poor thing, a shetland pony, was terrified. It took years to get its trust. We've 'fostered' it for 10 years. I never intimated once that all our rescues were anything to do with travellers, only the one which we were sure of.

My point is made in my last post. There seems to be a rule for one and not for another, and the people who appear to be playing by the rules (regardless of whether those rules are effective or not) are the one's who are being attacked for crualty. Again, read my previous posts and you will see I have never defended abuse of horses no matter how or where it occurs.
