Yesterday I heard the news, somebody whacked Bill’s beautiful tail off (and part of his mane)….thank god they only cut his hair.
Bill is a well-known and loved Haflinger, owned and shown locally by our daughters close friend Ashley (photo previously posted, see labels). What kind of person would do such a cruel thing, and why?
He was turned-out in a paddock by the road with another horse, who had nothing done to him. Could it be Bill’s gregarious personality that found him randomly being violated or, did some sick person target Bill/family for unknown reasons…I’m leaning towards the latter. I may just go to the show tomorrow, and be a fly on the wall. If it was targeted, my guess is the scum will be their trying to hide their gloating….won’t prove anything - but it might help a great family shed some light on the situation. Don’t worry Bill, many others will be keeping their ears and eyes open – and you know what, we all think your awesome with or without hair!!
