While you are out walking, please do not feed any horses – especially those in the Burton Grange fields.
This is not only for their safety but yours, as they may bite when food is offered (especially the big white one – no matter how friendly he seems!). If continually offered food, they will lean over fences and get caught and pester those who don’t want to be pestered. Unfortunately we have seen people feeding our horses already this year and it is very worrying.
Horse deaths have risen dramatically over lockdown due to horses being fed and we love ours very much! So please enjoy them from a distance.
This also applies to the horses that are in the field by the river on Rook Street in the summer months. Their owner has found all kinds of things thrown into the fields, so please don’t give them anything.
