You Can't Make This Shit Up

COLUMBIA, South Carolina A South Carolina man was charged with having sex with a horse after the animal's owner caught the act on videotape, then staked out the stable and caught him at shotgun point, authorities said Wednesday.

But this wasn't the first time he has been charged. He pleaded guilty last year to having sex with the same horse after owner Barbara Kenley found him in the same stable. Then he was sentenced to probation and placed on the state's sex offender list.

Kenley said she noticed several weeks ago that her 21-year-old horse Sugar was acting strange and getting infections. She noticed things in the barn had been moved around — dirt piled up and bales of hay stacked near the horse's stall at her Lazy B Stables in Longs, about 20 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach.

"Police kept telling me it couldn't be the same guy," Kenley said Wednesday. "I couldn't believe that there were two guys going around doing this to the same horse."

She spent several nights at the stables, which are about 4 miles from her home, but didn't find anything. So she installed surveillance cameras, and when she reviewed the footage from July 19, she couldn't believe she was seeing the same man doing the same thing to her horse.

Kenley didn't call police because she was certain the man would come back to the stable, and she wanted to make sure he was arrested. So she staked out the barn and caught Sanford inside Monday night, chasing him to his truck and holding him with her shotgun until police came.


  1. Yeah, Ok, I thought this sounded familiar...except in the other story, it was a dog...down in Statesboro, Georgia. The guy was arrested and charged with a felony. Read about it here:

    It's the second story. The first is, infuriating and not at all funny.

  2. I have been thinking about this for a few hours now (no, I have nothing else to do) and it hit me. Something was nagging at me about this story. Myrtle Beach is in South that not correct, C? And Charleston is in South that not also correct, C?

  3. Damn JJ. You'd be a wiz at Geography on Jepardy!

  4. Maybe he'd be cured if they let the horse be in the superior position.

  5. PeachT...that is a pun. Cool.
    What does the horse have to say. I mean that have taken her love away. Just like a redneck mother.

  6. Thank you Punch. I've been waiting for you to wade in as I was beginning to think I was the only one who saw the humor in this. I guess no one recognized that I substituted Mr. Gotta Fly To Brazil Sanders as the culprit.

    I didn't include the entire news item in the post. They had a quote from the horse.... Whinnnnnny. Naaaaaaa. Whinnnnnny! They had a horse whisperer interpret: She says What the Fuck! I'm 21 years old, that's 102 in human years, and you take away the only fun I have!

  7. Thanks so much for your comment, and I loved the post you linked me to. It really calmed me down, particularly the bit about the monks, I could really envision it and get a grasp on the positive energy there.

    Your posts are excellent, this one included!


Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
