Stallion laws in Florida?

Does anyone know what Florida stallion laws are in regards to fencing? Citrus County area. I did a google search, but from what I'm finding, we have none.

The neighbors just down the road, informed me today that they are purchasing a pony stallion. The stud will be kept in their pasture, behind 3 strands of barbwire. So I'm worried he'll get out.

I have two mares and a proud cut colt. They are behind wire fencing, with a strand of electric wire over the top. Not exactly stud proof if this stud does get out.

I honestly don't care that their is a stud down the road, the neighbor behind me has a stud, but he's an amazing horse, kept in a paddock made of pipe corral, and has earned his breeding parts.

But these neighbors do not need a stud. They have one other horse, who looks awful. He's too thin, never sees a vet, and I've called AC multiple times for lack of shelter, not that AC cares.

So suggestions?

Probably not much you can do right now as far as neighbors down the road are concerned unless their stallion escapes. Property damage caused by their stallion will be on the stallion owner's head, might let them know that they better get insurance for the stallion liability to help pay costs if something happens in reguard to their new stallion. Try looking up Florida state laws regarding livestock fencing required for keeping stallions. Some states also require special annual shots given to stallions (Washington state requires one so I am sure there are other states that may also have their own requirements for stallions)
