Plea for help after four-month-old colt goes missing from Exmoor farm.
PEOPLE in the Lynton area have been urged to be on the look out for a four-month-old foal missing since Tuesday night.
Owner Jane Lavington has appealed for any sightings after Clyde and the herd of brood mares and foals he was with escaped from Hallslake Farm at Brendon during the night.
All were found safe and sound the next morning, except for the young Clydesdale cross colt, and she fears something may have happened to him.
“We don’t really know why his mum has left him and sadly think something may have happened to him resulting in him being injured or trapped somewhere in the area,” she posted on the North Devon Gazette Facebook page.
“He isn’t weaned and hasn’t been handled very much so would be suspicious and wary of people. He’s quite a big foal being half Clydesdale so would stand out from the usual Exmoor ponies as he is already bigger than most adult Exmoors.”
Jane lives in Kent but keeps Clyde at the farm with his mother as he has not been weaned yet.
