I was wondering the same thing! Is that against the law? I know there are horses in the wild but at least they have trees to get under. Those poor horses have no shelter and we're in the middle of winter!!!

I don't understand. With all those horses, they have GOT to be able to afford some kind of shelter. If not, then they shouldn't have gotten the horses. I would have had a barn built before I even thought of getting the horses. Not sure on circumstances with these horses, but a lot of people are unhappy with it. I will look into calling someone. Humane society maybe?? Cause it is sure as hell inhumane!!!!!!

A friend of mine called the humane society and before she even told them where the horses were at the humane society knew EXACTLY what the address was. It was explained to my friend that the people who own the horses have a certain amount of time (wasn't told how long) to obtain shelter for those horses. The HS has received numerous call. We'll see what will be done about this sad situation.

It is called animal cruelty. Contact the department of agriculture, i believe they are in charge of that kind of thing now. If all else fails, brown county sheriff

People crack me up .. Sure you feel bad for the horses. Here's what happens ... people like u complain . Step 1 completed . Step 2 . The owners get fines. I'm sure if they could afford a freaking palace for the horses , they'd have built it. Step 3. More fines .. Court costs and comes Step 4. They take the horses away . ok fine ... U won . Now comes the part u over looked .Who pays for the freaking horses care now ? Charity ? Tax payers ? Theyll sit forever and a day . Maybe one day they get a better home . maybe they won't. Yadda , Yadda .. The poor animals .. I get it. But.. if u people are so worried , ask the people . offer a donation. Don't sit back and point fingers. Maybe the people lost a job , maybe a family member died. Be the saint u claim to be and do something other than run your mouth . Let's hope nothing ever happens to anyone you know and some goof plays judge and jury on them .
I'm pretty much sure that help thy neighbor was a quote from someone that lived alone a deserted island .

No reply you could shoot back to this would ever counter in anyway.

I have animals and believe me they are inside!!! I wont have an animal if I cant take care of them!!!! That is just irresponsible!! Its disgusting and I hope the horses live through -40*. You must know the owner if you're siding with them. Tell em to get a barn or maybe a coat for the horses.

Your a nit wit . There's homeless people and your freaking over an animal . Who knows what the situation is . I think the other person was simply saying that if you were that concerned you'd find out. Not post gossip b.s. on here . Typical whiner .. Always wants something fixed but never willing to do the work. You want them to get a barn or coat ... You tell them !

I'm a poor deer ... I wish I could get a place inside too . Maybe the rabbits and I could get a discount on a hotel room . I'd ask the squirrels... But I don't think they'd be welcome .

Isn't this forum for discussing what is going on in Williamsburg? MANY people have noticed the horses without shelter AND the small amount of land they're forced to live on. THAT particular situation is for agencies who are supposed to step in and do something about it. Yes, there are wild animals who don't have shelters made by humans but.. nature typically provides for them (trees etc). Animals in the wild have wider places to roam and shelter that can be found. Those defenseless horses are MADE to stay there. What about the water they drink? I bet that it's frozen solid! Now THAT is not providing for their nutritional needs. It looks like the owners of the horses could care less about their animals and why in the world did they get them???
These are ALL VALID questions that some people. The original poster asked if anyone knew who owns those horses. People have done the right thing by calling the humane society, what more can be done??? Sad...

There's an article on wxix.com about keeping horses and cattle in cold weather. It talks mainly about Kentucky. It does say certain county's do not have any specific laws in regards to protecting cattle in fridgid temperatures. I'm guessing horses fall under the cattle heading. I'd be willing to bet that this is the case. Not saying its right , but I'm pretty sure nothing is being done wrong.

The horses are in Sterling Township. http://www.sterlingtownship.us/roads.htm

So I'd say it's close enough to the Williamsburg area. I don't know why this technicality bothers you so much, oh well.

I'd venture to say that people in Mt Orab read Williamsburg's forum.

Don't know why this would bother u so much either.

They're horses. And I'm guessing they made it through the cold with no issues. If only people cared so much for other people then there wouldn't be wars and murders. Oh well ... I guess that's how it goes.

Horses are legally considered livestock under Ohio Revised Code laws, but many people think of them as pets, like a cat or dog. According to the ORC, the owners are required to provide only a windbreak for livestock, which may be a barn, the outside wall of a barn or outbuilding, or even a hillside. Not sure if there are any of those available to the horses, but if not, then the authorities will take action about it.
I have a relative that works for the Humane Society, & she gets many calls for situations like these.
