A CHRISTCHURCH woman has admitted neglecting her animals and causing them unnecessary suffering.

Nadine Robinson (45), of Fernlea, failed to ensure the needs of two horses in her care were sufficiently met by failing to provide a suitable environment and diet or adequate fresh drinking water.

The charge included that she also failed to deliver effective worming treatment or adequate farriery and hoof care.

The two animals were a thoroughbred gelding called Maddison and a grey Arab gelding named Flame.

A second charge stated the defendant did not investigate and address the causes of Flame's poor bodily condition and weight loss.

Robinson pleaded guilty to both counts at Poole Magistrates' Court, having previously denied the allegations.

The Bench released the defendant on unconditional bail and adjourned the case until 1st June for pre-sentence reports.
