RSPCA appeal after three ponies rescued from Gelligaer Common

RSPCA Cymru has launched an appeal for information after three ponies were removed from common land at Gelligaer due to concerns for their welfare.


Officers from the animal welfare charity worked in partnership with Caerphilly County Borough Council, Redwings, World Horse Welfare and The British Horse Society to help the ponies on Tuesday morning (14 February).

On veterinary advice, a skewbald mare, a skewbald yearling filly and a chestnut colt foal were removed from the common. The ponies were not microchipped.

RSPCA inspector Suzi Smith said: “We are appealing for information to try and track down who these ponies belong to.

“Anyone with information can contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

“The ponies are now in a place of safety and are receiving treatment.”

Suzi added “We’re very grateful for the support from the local authority and a number of equine charities – and this operation is another prime example of our strong partnership working, and what we can achieve together for animal welfare.”
