Antrim horses and ponies rescued


More than 60 animals have been rescued and nine found dead at a farm in Antrim.

The horses and ponies were discovered a week ago in squalid conditions by a vet at the premises on the Lisnevenagh Road.

Police found the animals living amongst the carcasses of nine dead animals.

Four animals were found to be in such poor condition that they had to be humanely put down.

BBC Newsline's rural affairs correspondent Martin Cassidy has been finding out about the survivors.
