I understand the horse failed the PA Emissions Testing also. The Trooper also noted that the horses tail had been signaling a left turn for the last 5 miles. The suspects were also charged with vandalism when they were being housed at the county jail. The jail guards reported that, while in the recreation yard, the suspects repeatedly were told to stop building barns at the jail. The warden reported that before they could be stopped, the inmates had built an entire wing to the jail complex.

If the Amish want to use the roads to get places. They should pay taxes and clean up after the horse that’s gone to the bathroom on the roads. We have to clean up after our dogs why can’t they clean up after the horse

The police are cracking down on them maybe because of their puppy mills and horse abuse. not all of them but these guys are on their way.
