    well... you can eat horses, and get milk from them, and there is more to raisiing livestock than just getting food and wool... horses can be pretty big money, could be a fellow's lively hood, raising, training and selling horses. not all horses are just pets either, even in todays world, horses are still widely used on a farm, especially in a amish community. not my horses... mine just eat hay...

    The hunter removed the arrow from moonpie so he couldn't be traced. WTF. I emailed the spec about the use of the term"hunter" no response thus far. I encourage others to do the same.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    Lol. I've just always imagined livestock as production animals. If you're not eating your horses, they're not livestock. Guys on here make their money breeding and training dogs, but their dogs aren't livestock either.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Livestock

    The term "livestock" is nebulous and may be defined narrowly or broadly. On a broader view, livestock refers to any breed or population of animal kept by humans for a useful, commercial purpose. This can mean domestic animals, semi-domestic animals, or captive wild animals. Semi-domesticated refers to animals which are only lightly domesticated or of disputed status. These populations may also be in the process of domestication. Some people may use the term livestock to refer to only domestic animals or even to only red meat animals.

    it lists horse as dairy and meat... it also shows dog as a type of livestock and meat is also listed beside it lol i think if you are raising dogs or any live animal for profit, i would consider it to be livestock

    I have a friend that raises horses and hunts too. Last week he was telling me that hunting deer from horseback is a real advantage. According to his experience, the deer hear the four feet of the horse and are therefore not alarmed as they would be by two feet in the woods.
    So, to add to all the speculation and opinions there is yet another error in the statements. Horses don't spook deer if his experience is to be accepted. It makes sense to me.
    For my own part I feel for the guy. No matter how miserable you might be to another there is no valid reason to target a defenseless domestic animal.
    There is room for all God's creatures - right next to the mashed potatoes!

    Quotes from this mornings Ham. Spec. article;

    "Moonpie was found Sunday night , dead but still warm, with a deep wound from what's believed to bean arrow through his thigh. He lay in an neighboring orchard, behind the Ridge Road market grounds where Stoltsfus housed Moonpie and his three horses "

    " An expert who visited the property Tuesday told Stoltsfus the wound was caused by an arrow"
