An appeal has been launched after a pregnant horse was stolen from a field.

Herts police are asking for any witnesses to come forward after the horse – a mare currently in foal – was taken from a field adjacent to B&Q, between London Road and Monkswood Way in Stevenage.

The mare which is mainly brown hair with a white patch on her neck was taken between 10am on Friday, September 26, and 7am on Saturday, September 27.

Sgt Alison Hutchin from the Stevenage Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We are appealing for anyone who knows anything about the whereabouts of this horse, or who saw anyone in the vicinity of the field between these times.

“We have reason to suspect that it could have been taken out of the county and we are very keen to hear from anyone with any information that could help up with our enquiries.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Sgt Alison Hutchin on Herts police non-emergency 101 number.
