Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil said it had also re­ceived con­cerned calls about the an­i­mals.

A spokesman said: “We es­tab­lished that the land is pri­vately owned and are cur­rently at­tempt­ing to con­tact the owner to make them aware of the public con­cern and give them ad­vice in case the horses are be­ing fly grazed.

“In re­spect of the wel­fare and con­di­tion of the horses we are guided by the RSPCA as­sess­ment that the horses are clearly be­ing fed, given fresh wa­ter and hav­ing their ba­sic needs met.”
