The owners of a miniature pony have been left “heartbroken” after she was stolen from a field in East Yorkshire.

Honey, a 38 inch tall female miniature pony, is thought to have been taken from a field on Rawcliffe Road in Airmyn, near Goole, overnight between 8.30pm on Friday September 16 and 9am on Saturday September 17.

According to Humberside Police, other horses were in the field at the time but only Honey, who is white in colour with light and dark brown patches, has gone missing.

A police spokesman said: “A blue horse box with silver writing on the side was seen in a near by lay-by and may or may not be connected with the disappearance of the horse.”

Her owner Laura Johnson has made an appeal for Honey’s safe return and is offering a £1,000 reward for anyone who has any information which may lead to her being found.

A Facebook page called Please Help Find Honey has been set up to raise awareness of the theft.

“Please help us reunite honey with her heartbroken four-year-old best friend.”
