I understand your point Zel - but if this were to happen, over time - would everywhere not be the same?

Many people come on and say how they love Spain, the Spanish and their culture - Then gripe about their, ethics, legal system, and bureaucracy. It's the parts that make the whole, start changing the things you don't like and it will change those that you do?

I agree with you. I didn`t say it was my opinion. I was giving fact, fact as I know it, but Im sure I will get reams of newspaper articles in quotes off someone... but Spaniards (that I know) don`t have the same animal welfare feelings as us Brits.... at least the older generation don`t.... and as bullfighting still goes on, it would appear that the younger generation don`t either. We fight hard for animal welfare in the UK and win, I think, mostly.... but ideals are different here (in Spain).

Yeah. Ain't that the truth. There's a fine line here, too. At what point do your attempts to alleviate animal cruelty become 'some damn foreigner coming into our country and telling us how we should live'. ??

It is obviously done to stop the horses from wandering too far away, but still enabling them to graze. It is also a method used by gypsies in the Uk and Ireland, and by Arabs to stop their camels from straying

We are a world of different classes and cultures and religions. We are all trying our hardest to mix and blend in one way or another. It doesn`t work. It hasn`t worked for millions of years so why is it going to work now that we are in the `21st century`? One civilisation, one country, one man, has tried to convert other civilisations and countries to their own, in one way or another, at some point in history to the present day. We all view things our own way and everyone else is wrong. We all see ourselves as civilised and everyone else as barbaric. It happened before our birth and will continue after our death. The horses.... I`m not too keen on horses ..if you`ve seen my previous posts.. or actually I should say horseriders... but I wouldn`t like to see them hurt. No. Or any animal for, that matter. (I`m reserving judgement on cats).

Incest has been done for centuries.

Isn't incest defined as 'rolling your own?'

I'd like to see the horse events in the UK banned where there is a good chance of the horses being injured. I think that's barbaric.
