Sussex neglected horse rescued from mud
Footage sent to BBC South East has shown the rescue of an abandoned and neglected horse that was so weak it was unable to stand up.
It comes three weeks after a horse died in the same field near Hailsham, East Sussex.
Alison Van Beirendon, a resident who lives nearby, said she went into the field to lift the animal's face out of the water and mud.
Vet Imogen Burrows said the horse was suffering from exposure, skin disease, and possibly other conditions that were making it thin.
