Mystery Surrounds Tied-Up Abandoned Horse

Mystery Surrounds Tied-Up Abandoned Horse

6:53am 26th January 2010

The RSPCA are appealing for information after a pony was found tied to a fence in Dinton near Aylesbury.

The pony, which has been named Brandon by animal centre staff, was discovered on Saturday morning (23 January) on Ford Road.  It is thought he was left some time between 11pm on Friday evening and 8am on Saturday morning.
 
Brandon is a gelding dark bay adult with three white feet, possibly aged between six and eight years old.  He measures approximately 14 hands and was wearing a black head collar with a red lead rope.  He was wearing horseshoes on his front feet.
 
The pony was timid and frightened at first, but seems used to being handled and is well-behaved.  RSPCA inspector Will Rippon said:  “It is unusual for a healthy and otherwise well-cared for animal to be abandoned in this way.  It seems that whoever dumped the pony did want him to be found but people must realise that it is not acceptable to just dump an unwanted animal.”
 
Anyone with information about where Brandon came from or who his owners may be should contact the RSPCA in confidence on 0300 1234 999.
 
Brandon has been moved to a charity in Oxfordshire where he will be cared for until his owners can be found or a new home can be found.
