Scotland – A woman became suspicious when she found a syringe cap and spots of blood on the floor of her horse’s paddock.  The 15-year-old Hanovarian gelding is Sarah Aitken’s love.

“On closer inspection my horse also had three small swellings grouped together in the jugular groove halfway down his neck and some dried blood at the site of needle entry.   Apart from this my horse appears unharmed and neither of them appears stressed,” Ms Aitken told reporters.

A motive is entirely unknown.  “He is a gelding and therefore it cannot be for breeding, he is not valuable — only to me — albeit he is a 17.2hh eye-catching Hanoverian,” Ms Aitken said.  A couple theories include needing clean blood to pass a drug test, or checking the horse’s reaction to needles prior to sedating and stealing him.
