    Horse owner fed up with drones

    A horse owner is fed up with being chased by flying drones whose operators can't be tracked down.


    Dannevirke equestrian Keiasha McGhie says she's been followed by drones four times on beaches and private property.

    She says farmers are now threatening to shoot the machines down if they continue harassing stock.

    McGhie says one drone got so close to her horse, she could almost touch it.

    The horse reared up and accidentally kicked itself, damaging its face.

    She's trying to let people know that horses get spooked by drones.
