Headteacher Paul Parascandolo said the school had removed the horse yesterday morning and ensured their pupils were kept away from the site.
He said: “Regarding the horse in the adjacent field to the school, I can tell you that although the horse was not on school property, staff acted quickly to arrange for it to be removed from the field in a humane way by a professional company.
“As soon as the school became aware of the horse, our children were kept away from the area and we are not aware of any distress caused to them.
“The horse was removed yesterday morning. I’m afraid I don’t know who notified the school, it may be that our caretaker made the discovery on his usual inspection of the site boundaries.”So who paid? Not, it would seem, the horse's owner. Which was, I suspect, the reason for dumping it where it was dumped!
It is not known who owns the horse and the RSPCA have not been contacted about it.To translate: everyone and his dog knows who owns the horse, and equally, knows there's utterly little point in expecting anyone to do anything about it.
