To make sure you get the right answer, I would suggest calling the county Zoning office, or perhaps email them. Pretty easy to do, really.

Yes, find out from your local zoning board what's required.

I do know from having lived in Maryland that if you want to put horses on your property you need a minimum of 3 acres for the first horse, with 1/2 acre additional land for each animal after that.

So if you want 3 horses, you'll need 4 acres of land.
