Hard life wherever you go.

There are some pretty pampered horses here, though, Zhoen, and even those that aren't pampered don't get treated like this (or, if they were, the owner would probably be charged). Isolated cases occur anywhere, but this is more like the rule than the exception where I travelled in India.
