Local horse lovers have banded together to publicise the plight of a young foal stolen from his mother’s side at a stable.
Herts Police are still seeking one-month-old Shetland pony, Cecil, who was snatched from a property in Summerhouse Lane, near Radlett, between 7pm last Thursday (14) and 7am on Friday.
A local woman, concerned about the welfare of Cecil, contacted the Herts Ad to say that flyers publicising the stolen pony have been placed throughout Radlett and Aldenham.
She said: “The poor little thing probably won’t survive without its mother, so there needs to be as much publicity as possible.”
Police have released images of the foal in an attempt to urgently locate him, and track down those who stole him.
