Cart horses in bad condition

The cart horses in used in Melville and Westdene look undernourished and forced to carry carts which are far to heavy.  I also saw a horse which had an injury (looked like a knife wound) which was bleeding. The horses (as far as I am aware) are kept in Triomph across the road from the dumping site.

    I have been in contact with the SPCA and they are following up on this.

    Is there not a carthorse foundation in Gauteng. There is one in CT which works hand-in-hand with the SPCA. They have a log of all carthorses in Cape Town, who the owners are, who they lease the horses to. They rehabilitate the horses and ensure that the owners take care of them at all times or they confiscate the horses.
