At this time of year horses grazing in fields bordering the canal are either well looked after, as in the case of these two, or virtually left to fend for themselves, which is becoming all to common these days. Either way they are all vulnerable to the vagaries of the weather and can quickly succumb to a lack of basic care when temperatures drop rapidly, accompanied by prolonged spells of precipitation with no shelter or covers available.
So, if you see any signs of even minor distress amongst grazing animals, please enquire locally and let someone know. It will make all the difference and be appreciated.
