Have you seen this? Two race horses die on the field! Watch the news story

Shockingly two race horses died at the race track - the situation is being investigated. It is suspected that the horses were electrocuted due to a bad combination of the horses wearing metal shoes, having wet ground, and an electric current running through the ground.

A terrible tragedy. I have heard of something similar happening in an arena that had a wet spot - horses with shoes were killed from the electric current.

I suppose to take this as a cautionary tale- ensure all electrical wiring is safe, and maybe consider if your horse really needs shoes.
