Dublin, Ireland, January 2, 2011:.Boy beats a horse during the Smithfield horse market in central Dublin. This traditional market has now become a place for the young boys from poor northern neighborhoods of the city trade the horses, selling them for as little as 80 Euros, mistreating them and roaming on them up and down the slippery square..Since the beginning of crisis, between 10 and 20 thousand horses have become homeless or went in the hands of the youths in urban areas. Lots of Irish people who used to buy horses for fun during the boom years of "Celtic Tiger", now are abandoning them faced with expenditure of 35 Euro a week to properly maintain a horse. This animal previously worth 2000 Euro now can be purchased for as little as 80 Euro. New owners keep their horses in city greens, city ruins, or their house gardens, in very bad conditions. Most do not get much food, many are starving, dying, being mistreated..(Photo by Piotr Malecki / Napo Images)..Dublin, Irlandia, 2/01/2011:.Chlopak bije konia podczas comiesiecznego targu koni w Smithfield w centrum Dublina..Ten tradycyjny targ  stal sie miejscem gdzie mlodzi chlopcy z biednych polnocnych dzielnic miasta handluja konmi po 80 euro, zle je traktujac i szalejac na nich po calym placu. .Od poczatku kryzysu od 10 do 20 tysiecy koni zostalo wyrzuconych na ulice przez wlascicieli nie chcacych placic okolo 35 Euro/tydzien za ich utrzymanie.
