When horse diapers and freedom of religion collide

Horse diapers have been thrust into the debate over religious freedom.

Two Amish men in Auburn, Ky., filed a lawsuit last month saying a city ordinance requiring horses to wear equine diapers—bags designed to catch manure—violated the ability of Amish residents to exercise their religion.

The ordinance, passed in 2014, broadened an existing law mandating the removal of dog waste in public places. The new law, which the city said was spurred by complaints from neighbors about horse manure, requires a “properly fitted collection device” to be placed on all horses walking on the street.

    Maybe they need to put Diapers on elected people that spread all kinds of political Bullshit which is just as bad..

  • Rodney Steward says:

    WOW, this is really great, next thing they’ll do is put diapers on birds, that’ll be fun to watch!!

  • Howie Subnick says:

    City administrators cannot leave well enough alone. Resident dog owners almost NEVER pick up when they walk their dogs especially at night when no one is watching. By the way I’ll steal this from below: “hard-pressed” and STUPID! The administrators should be as law abiding as the Amish. That will never happen. God Bless The Amish and Their way of life.

    Those city ordinance writers must be hard-pressed to find something to do with their time to concern themselves with horse manure, which any farmer finds a natural and even pleasant aroma.
