Working equids: the welfare of those worked to their limit.

This chapter discusses the working equids′ (horses, donkeys and mules) context; welfare consequences of working equids being pushed to their biological limits (access to food and water, shelter, management of disease and injuries, handling and management practices, behaviour, appropriate workloads and fitness to work, equipment and service provision (farriery and equipment) and end of working life); improving life for working equids (practical suggestions for rectification at local level); and global framework to address issues associated with working equids being pushed to their limits.
