Horses moved from residence in Village of Elba
Per a judge's order, two horses that were illegally stabled at a home in the Village of Elba were moved to another undisclosed location Saturday afternoon.
At court proceedings last Wednesday, Elba Town Justice E. Douglas King ruled that the young colts would have to be moved from the South Main Street residence of Mark and Bunny Stoneham by Saturday or else he would impose monetary fines for each day after that.
It is unlawful, according to Elba's zoning laws, to stable farm animals or store manure, fertilizer, etc., in a Residential district.
Reportedly, the horses were at the Stonehams for nearly three months.
When contacted by phone on Saturday, Bunny Stoneham -- who had indicated they took the horses in because they needed special care -- said she did not want to comment.
