SYDNEY, October 30. - The Agent-General has been making inquiries amongst the buyers of Australian horses with reference to the effect of climatic conditions upon them. He has forwarded a number of letters to the Government, including one from the Director-General of the Indian Army Veterinary Department, which states that lately the New South Wales horses sent to India have shown signs of unsoundness, ringbone, and roaring, which he ascribes to the indiscriminate use of unsound stallions. Apparently this is ono of the reasons which induces the British Army authorities to purchase Argentine remounts in preference to Australian.
