A Parkland County mother says her daughter is devastated after her two mini-horses went missing from the family’s property at Silver Sands Estates Tuesday morning.
Amber Ziganash says it was around 6:00am when she went to check on her two mini-horses, Apollo and Burberry.
She says the gate to their yard was unlatched, and the horses were gone. Ziganash says they couldn’t have gone far on their own.
“My friend rescued them.” she says. “They came from a really bad home. The gelding got caught up in barbed wire so he’s blind–he got the barbed ware in his eyes. And the mare has a bad hip from an injury that was never treated, so they’re really vulnerable horses.”
In addition to her bum hip, the mare is also heavily pregnant, according to Ziganash.
“And that’s just how she came.” she says. “And interestingly, the gelding is actually the father of her baby, but he’s gelded now, so it’s the whole family that’s missing.”
She says her family has been searching all day and is hoping anyone who knows where the horses are will contact the family at 780-246-1021, or get in touch with RCMP. (ms)
