A woman has been disqualified from keeping horses for 20 years after she admitted cruelty towards two former racehorses. Tracey Dawn Davis from Bromyard in Hereford, admitted neglecting ex-racehorses, Pumpkin, formerly known under race name Buds Bruvver, and Hal, formerly known under race name He’s a Leader, when she appeared before magistrates in Worcester yesterday (May 11th). Both horses had to be put down shortly after being rescued. Davis was sentenced to 12 weeks custody, suspended for one year, and ordered to carry out 120 hours unpaid work as well as pay £614 in costs. She admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the two thoroughbred horses between October and November last year by failing to ensure they were protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease by not adequately worming them. RSPCA inspector Suzi Smith, who investigated, discovered that Davis had been alerted to the poor body condition of one of the horses in particular two months earlier by her own vet. Davis has been ordered to re-home five other horses she owns within 21 days.
