New campaign looks at sensitive issue
WORLD Horse Welfare has launched a new campaign to get people talking about the practical arrangements of having their horse put to sleep.  
The aim is to encourage people to make a plan for that final decision well in advance, as currently the subject is rarely discussed openly and can lead to major welfare problems. 
Samantha Lewis, manager of the Just in Case initiative, said: 'The idea is to get people talking about the difficult subject of having their horse put to sleep."

Veterinary boost for Olympic team
A VETERINARY surgeon from the University of Liverpool will be lending his expertise to the equestrian team at the London 2012 Olympics.  
Peter Bowling, clinical director of the Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital, has been appointed as an equine veterinary advisor for the equestrian competitions.  
More than 250 horses from over 35 nations will take part in the 2012 Games, which include dressage, show jumping and eventing, and a team of vets, will oversee  
the health and welfare of the horses competing and provide treatment and advice throughout the event.
