A two-month search for a five-year-old’s pony which went missing from a Ramsey field is over.
Catriona Carnegie’s son Josh’s 24-year-old pony Tic Toc has been found dead, according to a message posted on Facebook by a friend of Mrs Carnegie.
The Welsh/Shetland cross, who suffered from Cushings disease, was thought to have been stolen in early December prompting a nationwide appeal to find Josh’s pony before Christmas, which was seen by thousands of people and was shared by Olympic equestrian Charlotte Dujardin, former jockey Clare Balding and Zara Phillips.
Mrs Carnegie, 30, of Ugg Mere Court Road, Ramsey, was able to put up a £6,000 reward for the return of Josh’s pony before Christmas, but was reduced to £2,000 afterwards.
Philip Ward-Burton posted on the group: “It is with the utmost sadness that I have to write this and inform everyone that Tic Toc has been found and I’m afraid to say it’s the worst possible end to the search for him that was hoped for.

“I personally dealt with the recovery and removal of him as it was far too much for Catriona and her family to face.
“Not only has Catriona had the trauma of the past couple of months since him going but now has to deal with the utter devastation it has brought upon her.”
