Officers say that shortly after 8pm on Friday, 30 December 2016, the animal received injuries to its face and legs consistent with being hit with a hammer.

“The pain the poor horse must have endured is unthinkable and I’m determined to find the person responsible for this sickening offence.
“No one we have spoken to saw the actual attack take place and I would urge anyone who has any information about it to please contact police.”
