Welsh ponies dumped as prices fall
PONIES are being abandoned in Wales as prices fall to as little as 1, says the RSPCA.
The Times reports that animals are left to roam common land or housing estates and are being left behind at markets if they are not sold.
The RSPCA blames indiscriminate breeding for the fall in value.
