Horse abandoned in field

The Scottish SPCA has issued an appeal after a stray horse was found in a field near Mauchline in Ayrshire.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted to the incident after the owner of the field discovered the horse on the morning of 15 May.  

Scottish SPCA inspector McIntyre said “The horse was found in a field that was already home to two donkeys.

“The owner was very surprised to find they had another equine in their field.

“The horse is a colt and still quite young. He’s maybe only just over a year old.
