Carcasses of sheep and a Shetland pony were found in a field and two live sheep, one a black-horned ram, were found sheltering in a shed.

Both were extremely thin and there was no sign of hay or feed in the snowbound field.

One had since died in care, while the other has been boarded.

A vet concluded the animals were malnourished through neglect and a post-mortem examination found one of the other dead sheep was suffering from anaemia and had a parasitic infection.

Edwards admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the sheep by failing to provide adequate nutrition and parasitic control.

Sentence: 100 hours of unpaid work; total of £385 costs and charges. A shocking TWO-year ban on keeping animals.
