TWO miniature ponies have gone missing after the lock to their field gate was removed.

The horses, a palomino Falabella stallion and a Shetland mare, were either stolen or let out of a field in Great Broughton, near Stokesley, between Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26.

They are both electronically tagged and North Yorkshire Police, local vets and the RSPCA have been informed.

The lock on the field gate had been removed and the horses were let free or stolen.

Anyone with information can call North Yorkshire Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
