TWO much-loved horses worth £4,000 have been stolen from a Huddersfield field in the middle of the night.
Zarina Mujahid and two-year-old daughter Layla were devastated by the theft two weeks ago.
But there has been no sighting of Spec or Bonny since they were stolen.
Zarina, 22, from Newsome said she used to visit the horses every day at the stables at Bradley.
But when she went up to feed the horses on January 28 she found they had gone.
She said: “I am really upset about it.
“They were like family to me, I’ve had them for so long.
“I’ve had Bonny since she was nine months old. I rescued her when she was in a bad state.
“I’ve had Spec all his life.
“We would go up to see them every day; they knew who we were and would come over to us.
“Whoever took them must have done it at night time. They could never have been taken during the day without anyone seeing.”
Spec is a six-year-old grey Arab horse with distinctive scars on his body, above his left ear, on his right shoulder and body from when he was hit by a car.
He would cost £2,500 to buy now.
Bonny is a Welsh section A mare who is four years old. She was born with a limp which she still has. She would cost £1,500 at auction.
They lived in a field between Upper Quarry Road and Lower Quarry Road.
Zarina, a mother-of-one, has searched local horse markets and fields throughout the borough, but there has been no sign of Spec or Bonny.
Layla used to ride on the horses and help to take care of them.
“She loves them like a little baby,” Zarina said. “We really miss them and want them back.”
When she reported the theft to the police she was given a crime number but no other help from them.
“It was quite disappointing. I thought they would help more but all I got was a crime number,” Zarina added.
