Public unaware of equine obesity dangers
A EQUINE welfare survey has revealed that the British public can't recognise when a horse is obese and are unaware of the health risks it poses.  
International charity World Horse Welfare has revealed new statistics that show that even though obesity in horses is now at an epidemic level, the majority of people are unaware of the dangers.  
To get the results, over 2,100 members of the public were asked to provide feedback on the biggest horse welfare problems in Britain today.
