Vanessa Newman, 51, was walking her dogs Dolly and Coco in a field near her home in Newhaven when she stopped to feed some carrots to the horses.
A horse pushed her aside and trampled on six-year-old miniature schnauzer Dolly and her three-year-old chihuahua cross Coco. Dolly broke her neck in the attack and later died.It makes a change from the other way around...
She said: “I have never stopped to feed the horses before with the dogs.”Really? What stopped you?
“I grabbed them both and got to the fence and lifted them both carefully over. Then I climbed over the barbed wire fence myself.”Ah. Maybe that?
“I blame myself. But I don’t think aggressive horses should be kept in fields which the public can walk through.”'Can walk through' only after they've crossed the fence designed to keep them out?
In case you were wondering....
Well, it IS Brighton!
