Farmer's misery over abandoned horses

William Jenkins, who farms near Blackwood in south Wales, has horses on this land which do not belong to him.

The horses are grazing on the grass, and leaving my sheep to go hungry. I believe people are buying horses, then realising the cost of feeding them outweighs the amount they'll sell for, and people are just dumping them.

– William Jenkins, farmer
