At first, when I glanced over what you wrote I thought you were saying YOU had 500 horses on 1/2 acre! I was relieved to find out I'd misread

Ugh. It's neighbours like yours that make one almost glad for the quiet neighbour who has a large freezer (see Speed Racer's avatar ). Especially if the quiet neighbour has a habit of quietly refrigerating troublemakers (yes, I'm joking - maybe!).

My parents are artists and have had years and years of grief from neighbours in the places they've lived - from people complaining that my dad's hand-carving is too noisy, to us being reported for not being in school (we were homeschooled perfectly legitimately and they knew it). I've seen more ugly battles across fences than I have fingers on my hand and my parents won out every time. How? They outlasted them.

They also played lots of Greek bouzouki music

Good luck, get the horse and practice passive resistance!

None of them could tell us anything. I currently have two minis (in some places they are considered pets not livestock?) and I am going to buy/adopt a large horse. I would not be too worried about the law but we have a very nosy neighbor who does not like our animals and has it in for us and I am afraid that she will find a law saying that we can't have as many horses as we are going to have (2 minis and a regular horse on a little over 2 acres). Than I would have to find a place to put my horse and that would cost money plus be a pain to have to go somewhere else to ride. Does anyone know about a law like this (Is there one like that in your area?) or know where I can find out? I also am wondering if my minis are considered pets instead of livestock or at least one horse instead of two since they are miniature (does anyone know). Thank You!
A horse is a horse is a horse. Just like a cow, sheep, goat, chickens, pigs. Lots of people keep them as pets but they are all classed as livestock. Size doesn't come into it and neither does what you choose to call them - pets/livestock. Horses are livestock, end of.

I would keep calling until you found your answer. It varies from state to state, sometimes township to township. I know in my area its 1 animal unit/acre. One animal unit is equal to 1000 lb.

Haha. This post is so old! I did find my answer, which was that you can have as many animals as you want where I live except you can't have any more than 5 dogs or you are considered a kennel. So, ha, neighbors, I can have all the "Ponies" I want!

No limit on livestock ? Where do you live ? What state ?
Here it is one hooved animal per quarter acre. Nursing babies exempt.

City rules are diff than county rules.

We have no limits on livestock here in the Orange County, NC. There are a few towns in the county that do have town limits, though.
