Hackney Pony, no papers

Recently bought a home with soybean/corn fields on two sides, a neighbor who loves the pony on the other side, and another neighbor with a pasture I can use during the day so I thought he was fine. It turns out I live two doors down from Don Minton, township trustee who filed a complaint so I now have 30 days to find him a home.

He is about 10 years old, 12hh and does not have papers. No founder issues, stands great for the farrier and loads well. He once was used to pull a cart and was ridden but hasn't done much lately. I came back from Iraq with PTSD so for the past several years he has mostly just served as my friend and a shoulder to cry on. I have led my nieces around on him and he is good about letting them do the braids and ribbons thing.

It is tough enough to lose my buddy and have to find a new way to cope so my main priority is to be certain that he is going to a good home. Any help in accomplishing this would be appreciated.

He is located in New Carlisle, Ohio 45344

Thanks for looking,

Sorry, different country so not quite understanding. Is there some sort of by-law saying you cant keep your horse? I hope you are getting legal advice to make sure some 'big name' isn't just throwing their weight about. Some people are just so rude.

Probably has to do with the local zoning laws, SHT.

Not sure what the OP's local zoning laws state about livestock, but there's usually a minimum acreage requirement and the area has to be zoned for them. If it's not, then she can't keep a horse on the property. That zoning ordinance would include goats, sheep, cattle, llamas, alpacas, emus, ostriches, swine, and may also ban chickens.

Basically, if it's not zoned livestock/agricultural, she can't keep farm animals.

Sounds to me as if she lives in an actual township and not out in a rural area, which usually means no agricultural zoning.

I'm truly sorry you're going through this OP, but people should always check their local zoning laws before bringing farm animals onto a homestead.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Is it possible for you to find a place to board the pony?

I looked up New Carlisle on a map and you are about an hour's drive from me. I'm in Galloway near I-70, west of Columbus.

And I'm interested in coming to see your pony. Actually have been thinking about when to get a pony. My daughter even has a pony cart.

I see you are a new HorseForum member, you may not have enough posts to send me a PM, I'll try sending you a message - maybe it will let you reply to a PM.
