Mobile clinic for 'transport' ponies in Cambodia

Pony carts are among the preferred means of transport in rural Cambodia but few know what to do when the animals fall sick.

But a local NGO has been de-worming ponies, offering mineral supplements and treating injuries for free.

It claims it is saving ponies lives as many owners stop feeding sick animals when they are not considered a worthwhile investment any more.
