Chapter 87:7
Animals on Shabbos

7. One must not allow chickens to go out [into the public domain on Shabbos] with cords tied to them for the purpose of identification or so that they will not break articles. It is permitted if their feet were tied so that they do not run away. Similarly, when horses graze in the field, [sometimes] their two front legs are tied together (for example, with a rope running between them) to prevent them from running away; this too is permitted [in the public domain]. [The horse] may not, however, be tied in either of the following two ways:

a) "okud" ("fettering") - tying one of the forelegs to one of its hind legs;

b) "rogul" ("hog-tying") - tying one of its hind legs upwards, so that it is supported on only three legs. This is forbidden even during the week, because it is considered "tza'ar ba'alei chaim" (causing unnecessary pain to animals)
