STOLEN: The other brown and white pony

A HEARTFELT plea has been issued for the safe return of two ponies stolen from a paddock in Burgh Castle.

Both owners are desperate get the pair of much loved brown and white ponies back home following the theft last Friday night.

Thieves had to remove posts and electric fences to take the two mares from the field they were grazing in at Hall Farm.

Arthur Scriven received a telephone call to say his six year old pony was missing from the field and realised it has been stolen after searching neighbouring farms.

He said: “There was no sign of either of them so it is obvious they have both been stolen and two ponies were seen being loaded onto a trailer nearby.

“We have had her since the day she was born which makes it even more distressing she has a wonderful temperament and our nieces and nephews love riding on her.

Mr Scriven, who owns the pony with his wife Sarah, said she was due to be micro chipped next month.

The couple have posted pictures of her on the internet and are planning to visit local horse auctions in the hope she turns up.

Michala Sprayson, the owner of the other pony, a nine year old cob, said: “We are absolutely devastated our children cannot believe it we have had her for four and a half years. She is lovely really and is so sweet natured.”

Anyone with information about the thefts should call Great Yarmouth police on 0845 4564567.
