(1) The building they stayed in had already been looted bare, with straw lining the floor for newcomers to sleep on, and the wooden pillar at the base of the broken stairs used to tether horses.(2) With bridle and saddle managed in one hand, Isabella released the gelding from his tether and stepped back, heading towards the tack room without waiting to confirm he returned to his stall.(3) Gregory turned from his parents' grave and walked back through and out of the barren house to his horse, the animal waiting patiently on its tether and barely visible against the forest shadows.(4) The trees in question were certainly a fine stand of eucalypts, over by the Ivanhoe road, and I knew Laura liked to go riding in that direction, to tether her horse and wander amongst the silvery patterned trunks.(5) He paused to dismount as well, tossing a thin tether to a man who took the animal away.(6) Mrs Cruddas said one simple solution in Hull Road would be for the grass to be regularly cut - thereby removing any incentive to tether the horses there.(7) On closer inspection, he found a friction wound, blackened with scabs, on the back of Patch's neck and a chain tether , with a blue nylon rope, nearby.(8) He agilely jumped off and tethered his horse to a bar that had seemingly been placed there for that specific purpose.(9) Selected European countries and the European Union have banned or are phasing out use of stalls and tethers for gestating sows.(10) Lancaster drew rein, tethering his horse in the thicket of pine just off the crest of the hill.(11) A docile Labrador dog was tethered five metres away from its owner, who was disguised as a tradesman.(12) He still makes traditional cow bands, used by farmers for tethering cattle and other farm jobs, out of Egyptian flax on an old-fashioned rope-making sled and top.(13) Mala groaned, picked up her bedroll, and moved to where their horses were tethered .(14) The water wasn't too cold, so they took off their riding boots and rolled up their riding pants, then waded for a while in the cool water, tethering the mares to a nearby tree.(15) If enacted, the law might eliminate tethers and stalls for other classes of cattle.(16) Tess had been tethering her horse when she heard shouting over the hill, a car door being slammed, and finally the crunch of wheels on gravel as a car reversed and sped away.
