Something so commonplace and yet often overlooked is the plight of the modern horse. Being imprisoned in small stalls day after day is often a normal occurrence around the world, but it is also inhumane. There should be stronger regulations worldwide to alleviate their suffering. A lot of the modern horse's behavioral problems such as cribbing and stall weaving are caused by confinement. Stalled horses are at greater health risks since movement is vital for healthy hooves, bones, digestion and respiration. Horses who breathe in a lot of dust and irritants from bedding, feed, etc., are also more prone to inflammatory airway disease. Confined horses are often overlooked as long as they receive food and water, but laws need to be put in place and regulated to ensure that each horse is also removed from its stall daily for proper exercise. This is the least we can do for them. As so many of us fight for the freedom and rights of dolphins and whales in pools and pens, as well as caged zoo animals, caged lab animals, caged farm animals, and caged dogs and cats, let's please not forgot about the caged horses. Thank you!
