Tesco Might Take Them, If You Ask....

Residents are growing concerned for a group of horses left on land owned by Warner Bros after the Leavesden film studios has issued an abandonment notice, which could see them "destroyed".
Gosh! Abandoned horses, eh? Who could do such a thing? Luckily, we have the RSPCA to...

Oh. Hang on.
The RSPCA have visited the site on three occasions and have said the horses are "in good body condition".
Well, well, well...
Klare Kennett, spokesman for the RSPCA, said: "The owner has provided the animals with hay.
"Advice was given to the owner to ensure they continue to meet the animals' needs. The local inspector has urged the horses' owner to move them as soon as possible.
"The RSPCA now has no specific causes for concern about these animals but will continue to monitor the situation and respond to any further complaints, as appropriate."
You'll respond to them by turning up, waving a hand airily and saying 'Nothing to see here', I suppose?

Or maybe try the Jedi Mind Trick: "These aren't the horses you are looking for..."

The locals are unimpressed...
Lucy Sewitt, who lives in Bushey, also decided to help her friend Emma and has been making daily visits to the pet shop and horses.
The pair also decided to set up a Facebook page, called Help the Leavesden horses to gain support and awareness.
 How terribly middle-class...
Mrs Sewitt, 27, said: "We are not pointing the blame at anyone. We just want someone to come forward for the horses because it would be such a shame if they were destroyed.
"Everyone on our page is really concerned. People from across the world have offered to pay for food and coats for the horses and sanctuaries have even offered to take the horses on.
"The RSPCA have reassured us that the owners have been feeding the horses but when we go along to feed them there seems to be no hay and only the hay that we have fed them."
Well, Emma & Lucy, perhaps you might stop to ask yourself why you let yourself be 'reassured' by the RSPCA, when a good hard look at their record should show you they have no intention whatsoever of doing anything about such a tricky subject.

Feed the horses the wrong sort of hay, mind you, and they'll be down on YOU like a ton of bricks...

Not a good time for horses it seems.

Indeed not. A very good time for pun lovers though.

"Not a case of Findus Keepers then ?"

Case in point!
