Noble County, Ohio – This horse was paralyzed with a fear of traffic after a truck ran him off the road.  Hoping to cure his horse of his fear of traffic, his owner locked him in a stanchion right along the highway, just mere feet from the white line.  Local’s were horrified as days turned into weeks and the horse was still tied in the stanchion.

The horse was left in the stanchion 24 hours a day for 2 weeks.  Water was given to him random times, and hay was given him in a wheelbarrow.  Without room to lay down or turn around, the horse’s suffering continued to mount.

Word of the horse spread through social media, and the phone calls began pouring into the Noble County Sheriff office and the Noble County Commission.  A visit from law enforcement made the Amish owner move his horse out of the stanchion and into a temporary pen close to the road, where the horse will be desensitized to road noise, but able to move about freely.
