Fears for rescue pony after sanctuary reports her missing
The My Lovely Horse Rescue shelter has appealed for the public's assistance in tracking down a missing pony, Polly Pockets, who is believed to have been stolen on April 9.
The two-year-old miniature Shetland pony was last seen in Kildare with the rest of the small ponies but didn't return home in time for her dinner.
Staff at the sanctuary carried out an extensive search for the pony but fear she may have been stolen and smuggled abroad.
The rescue pony arrived in the shelter in October 2016 after her mother was killed by her former owner.
Missing/Stolen in Kildare but could be anywhere in Ireland or UK: Polly Pockets has a distinctive marking on her face and is microchipped.
