"Scum" is the only adequate description for the animals who did this:
A horse's nose was cut and anti-English graffiti daubed on a stables owned by a Cardiff woman who had moved to a village in west Wales.
"This is a Welsh-speaking area and they might have mistaken our Cardiff accents for English, that is all I can think," she (Alison Hayes, owner of the horse) added.
"This was an incredibly cruel thing to do. Hope is a beautiful, friendly animal and she was slashed across the face and mouth."
