Here we go again folks. He sounds like an animal hoarder. A necropsy will tell how the horse died. This guy needs treatment, jail time, and the responsibility of paying for the animals care until they go to new forever homes. I also understand that he will be defending himself in court. I think it was Ben Franklin who said defending yourself in a court of law is a stupid thing to do.

I believe it's "He who has himself for an attorney has a fool for a client," but your absolutely correct in your assessment.
This character needs some serious jail time for "attitude adjustment."
There is simply no excuse for treating helpless animals in this manner.
There is an old statement that says something like "You know a person's character by the way they treat their animals".

I know this man he is very close to me. I know he has all the receipts! Horses have ribs! Anyone who has ever saddled a horse knows this. I know this man loves and feeds these animals plenty. He's a hobby farmer. His animals are all he has. I understand you people in cleveland will never understand, In the winter months water freezes thats the reason for the multiple water changes.. the cages may not be pretty but thy provide adequate shelter. This woman has chosen to make an example of him therfore he will not get a fair shake in portage. The dead hores was very old. This man although a difficult one has had healthy animals in all my 35 years of knowing him. So whats the problem now? Whats next? you cant even ride a horse because why should they have to carry you around? Water freezes in the winter get over it!

sence when did having an attitude constitute jail time? I know this guy he loves these animals and that bitch deputy don't care for him. Yes he does have all the receipts

by the way look how healthy the rabbits look! this a bunck of crap coming from the portage county APL. By the way didnt that horse look abused? no it didn't not even when the camera was there. I understand the calf they too (witch they failed to show) was quite well fed a little chunky! Huh wonder why they didnt show that.

Oh I forgot to mention he was taken to jail because of some statment other than animal abuse. Therefore the animals were left unattended because of this woman who had him arrested.(SANDERSON, JENNIFER, APL) so the said abused animals were left for better than 18-20hrs B4 the man even knew the said abused animals were taken. so at that point who was supposed to feed these animals or replace their frozen water? January, Febuary frozen water! you know ice? ever hear of it? Jennifer?

So the guy has receipts for the feed. That doesn't mean he actually put the feed out where the animals could get to it. And how about the lack of water? What's his alibi for that? I have zero compassion for someone who outright refuses to seek medical attention for their animals.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. If the stallion was in such terrible condition, why did he allow him to mate with the mare? That shows a lack of concern for the horses right there.

Exspecially since there are organizations that will help with vet bills. All you have to do is get on the Internet, and do a search for veterinary bill assistance.

I'm sure the man never thought of getting him gelded. May be he is one of these people who think that letting an animal reproduce is educational. I'll tell you what would be educational. Take a tour of your local animal shelters, see how many cats, dogs, whatever else you can think of, have to be put down, because they can't find a home, or there is no longer room to keep them. Then watch while they are being euthanized. People may think I'm being mean, and nasty. They may disagree with me. But I'm laying it on the table for people.

this man needs to go to prison--the abuse of animals is simply intolerable..all you that say you knew him--and that he loved his animals is CRAP!!! how could NOT know a horse is standing dead and half frozen next to the mare if you are feeding the mare on a daily basis??? duh?? as far as water--there are water containers that are heated and do not have to be frozen in the winter--this man clearly and blatantly starved and killed his animals. the only thing worse than child abuse is an ANIMAL ABUSER..THESE ANIMALS ARE INNOCENT..and so loyal... they only have people like humane officers to protect them..i purchased a dod out there in portage county from a man who innerbred his dogs(which i did not know)-and i had put the puppy down at 7 months..a beautiful cane corso..his kennels are deplorable and his dogs are in terrible condition right now in the winter elements- half starving and actually their fur is actaully frozen--after my puppy died we did some further investigatng and are watching him - and reported it to the humane society--but this man still operates a kennell--he and all animal abusers are one step ahead of the officer--lying and deceiving them into beleiving they care for their animals. all of a sudden crates and water and food appear when they know the officer is coming out to see them.. most of these back yard breeders are only in it for the money--they dont give a damn about the welfare of their animals. they should be treaed like common criminals and murderes..plain and simple......people that buy these animals and have these horific experiences wtih them later should stand up to these breeders AND REPORT THEM IMMIDIATELY.. IM SURE ANYONE WHO PURCHASED ONE OF THESE CANE CORSO'S HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS---CALL THE HUMANE OFFICER AND REPORT IT....please i urge you. we are the voice of these poor animals....an horses inparticula--regal nobe and our american heritage--shame ont this scum bag!!!!! he sould be left out in a cage - with no food or water-no protection from the weather-and left to starve as his animals...if you do the crime--you do the time...

well mr."think again" you clearly don't think at all I guess it must be o.k. for a horse to be starved to death and left for 3 days before even noticed if the man feed his horses that he "loved" so much(ha) he probably would have noticed a dead horse chained to another horse... It's to bad justice was not severed before these animals died but maybe now the horses deathes will be vindicated and this man will go to jail animal abuse is a CRIME...As for Maria I do know the kennels you are refring to in deerfield oh and the conditions are horific one can only hope these dogs get the same help the horses did before it is also to late!!!!!

he allowed a thirty year old pony mare to be in the same pasture with a stallion. right there shows his complete and total lack of knowledge about horses, nevermind common sense. And the pony only looked a healthy weight because she is 4 months pregnant. And, what kind of shelter has no roof? ALSO...why leave a dead rotting horse around where other animals are? how responsible is that? I don't care if the horse was "old" and that is why he died. He was just going to let him lay there and rot? This guy should spend the rest of his pathetic life in jail.
