Almond Valley Heritage Centre slams ‘irresponsible’ video of horse being fed Buckfast Almond Valley Heritage Centre via Facebook

A tourist attraction in West Lothian has slammed an out of hours visitor who filmed themselves feeding a horse Buckfast.

Almond Valley Heritage Centre, in Millfield near Livingston, was left furious after being sent footage of the incident at around 9pm on Monday.

It took place when the heritage centre was closed, on a public footpath which leads through the bottom part of the site to its horse paddocks.

The attraction, which describes itself as a family friendly museum, has said the alcoholic drink could make the horse “terribly ill”.

Addressing the incident on Facebook, they wrote: “This is not OK!!

“We have received an influx of messages tonight of someone (who’s name we have removed) giving Buckfast to one of our horses to drink.

“Completely irresponsible, this could cause serious issues to our gentle giants.

“We do not allow people to feed our horses, or let them drink Buckfast for a reason, that reason being it could make them terribly ill.

“This is on a public footpath through the bottom part of our site around our horse paddocks, this was this evening, not during the day.”

The Scottish SPCA said it has not received any reports of the incident.
