    Default BHS Launches New Service - "Friend at the End"

    I think this is a good idea. A trained support group for horse owners when the time comes to make the decision to put your horse down.

    That's a darned good idea. Another very practical notion from the British. They excel at common sense.

    Really interesting article. I find it particularly interesting that the welfare concerns received by the BHS are about old once loved horses who have not been let go and are suffering. And yes, we Brits do (usually) excel at common sense.
