Owners trying to get confiscated shetland ponies back from Dublin council

The owner of two shetland ponies that were removed from a Finglas housing estate yesterday is attempting to get the horses back.

Four people were arrested after a row broke out when gardaí turned up to take the animals off council land.

Amy who is one of the owners of Bronco and Cindy says the animals are well looked after.

She said: "I'm on my way to Dublin City Council, they want €2,000 off us to get the horses back.

"They were on the land four-and-a-half years, they only come out every day for two-and-a-half hours and the horses then get fed.

"We went up yesterday, we tried to get the horses back and we tried to tell them we had stables and to put them back in the stables. It got a bit out of hand, but other than that, the horses are grand."
