Paul mentioned that the CT state police were already on scene. I would surely pray that charges were filed right then and there! -- otherwise, that needs to be addressed as well.
Paul also appears to be well connected through many rescue organizations.
*this* type of abuse just has to stop. Fortunately, the horse is ok.
Thanks for the info Mike & Whitfield Farms !
ps: updates offer a different point of view. New channels tell a story of an elderly man retreiving a mare in heat from a neighbor who has studs. However, Im sure there were different options regardless of the circumstances. Bad judgement here.

I do know of a case where an owner and his neighbors had to drag a male equid off a property with a tractor as his behavior was incredibly dangerous in his zeal for accessing ladies that were not his. Vets could not get near him while his attentions were so engaged. Fences, gates etc were no match for his ardor.
Once they got him clear of the females and used the tractor to restrain him they tranqed him, laid him out and gelded him!

Meet Connecticut author, Culver Modisette, of “Honored Enemy”
Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 PM
About the book: HONORED ENEMY
This historical novel adheres to the history of the Great Southwest in the 1800’s, a past shared by the Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne tribes, as well as their adversaries, the United States Calvary. Colonel Ranald Mackenzie’s Fourth Calvary was pitted against Comanche war Chief, Quanah Parker, and his Indian allies in a struggle for dominance in Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma. Written after extensive research, the book sheds light on little-known events of the era, culminating in Parker’s friendship with President Theodore Roosevelt. Liberally illustrated by historic photographs, this book highlights the plight of the tribes, the loss of their mainstay food source, the buffalo, and the usurpation of their lands, while weaving a compelling story that will engage both history buff and novice alike and will give pause to all Americans, young and old.
About the author: CULVER MODISETTE
Culver Modisette enlisted in the Navy at age 17, hunting German U-boats until the war’s end, and then spent four glorious years at Dartmouth College. He worked for two decades as an advertising/PR executive until opening an outdoor sports business devoted to ecology sports, such as hiking and canoeing. While working at his outdoor sports business, Modisette took various trips throughout Canada and the United States, and over the years, came to admire and sympathize with the Athabaskan Indian people living in the Arctic Circle area of rural Alaska. His experiences have deepened his admiration of all native people. Modisette’s historical novel, Honored Enemy, explores his interest in American Indian culture.
The author eventually retired to be a tree farmer and Labrador breeder on 150 acres in Connecticut. He is the current president of the Northern Connecticut Land Trust and coaches the time-honored Indian game of lacrosse.
