In the case of the two extra horses kept within the town of Janesville, how about a little compassion here?! The town cannot be expected to bend ordinances left and right at every request, but in this instance Porsche Kettelhut did try to get a conditional use permit and, later, a variance. I’m guessing the two horses came before the legalities were addressed. Maybe the rescue opportunity was limited and urgent.
I cannot think two more horses on over six acres of land could make that much of a difference to the neighbors. What are their feelings? If the neighbors have no objections, why can’t the town get off its own high horse and grant the ordinance?
