An animal at HorseWorld near Bristol, with an allergic reaction to midge bites, needs a protective pair of pyjamas to ease its suffering.

The charity, Horseworld, near Bristol says Gracie May's condition has worsened. It wants help to make a special pyjama suit.

Many horses which suffer from the condition wear rugs to try and prevent the bites.

HorseWorld is now appealing for help from rug sponsors or machinists who could help to create a special suit for the 17 hands high heavy horse.
