"Just me and the pygmy pony over by the dental floss bush!"

Honey Brook is near PA Dutch Amish country - think Harrison Ford in Witness.


WEST CHESTER — A Common Pleas Court judge Wednesday accepted the guilty plea of a man who had been accused of having sex with a horse at the farm he owns outside Honey Brook.

Judge Phyllis Streitel sentenced owner Edwin Henderson to consecutive terms of 90 days of probation on each of two summary counts — cruelty to animals and disorderly conduct. Henderson, as part of the conditions of his probation, will have to undergo mental health and sex offenders’ evaluations as well.

Henderson, 54, of West Brandywine, attempted to deny that he had tried to engage in sex with the miniature pony that was stabled at the barn on his farm on Route 322. But after a long conversation with his attorney, Dan Bush of the law firm of Lamb McErlane, Henderson acknowledged that he had abused the animal.

“I am aware of … what I am accused of, and I am the one that mishandled the horse,” he said, after Streitel had insisted she would not accept the plea agreement Bush had worked out with Assistant District Attorney Emily Provencher unless he took responsibility for the crimes.

The owner of the horse attended the hearing, as did the arresting officer from West Brandywine police, but did not address the judge.
According to a criminal complaint filed by Officer Richard Craig, on July 28 shortly after 1 a.m., he was called to a stable on Horseshoe Pike for a complaint that someone had molested a horse there.

He spoke with a man who told him he had gone there at about 10:30 p.m. the night before to check on his girlfriend’s horses and open up the barn after severe thunderstorms had passed earlier that evening. When he arrived, he spotted a black miniature horse named Storm tied up in the aisle outside its stall, which he said was unusual. The horse’s tail had also been tied together and pulled aside, according to the complaint.

The man said he saw Henderson, who he knew as the stable owner, standing behind the horse wearing only boxer shorts. When the man confronted Henderson, the owner admitted that he had had sexual intercourse with Storm, the complaint states.

Craig said in his affidavit that he was able to gather written statements from the man and the horse’s owner, all of which said that Henderson had admitted to abusing the horse. He was charged with sexual intercourse with an animal, a misdemeanor, and cruelty to animals, a summary offense, but the misdemeanor charge was withdrawn by the prosecution.

While unusual, the crime is not unique. The charge of sexual intercourse with an animal is punishable by a maximum penalty of one to two years of incarceration and a $5,000 fine. Most people convicted of a second-degree misdemeanor can expect probation if they have no prior record.

In August 2016, a Lancaster County man was arrested by Ephrata police for the same offense. Authorities alleged that the 24-year-old from Denver entered a barn without permission, and was caught abusing a horse inside. He pleaded guilty in April 2017 to trespassing and sexual intercourse charges and was sentenced to two years probation.

In the description of the events that Provencher cited as the facts of the case, she said only that in this case, Henderson had attempted to have sex with the horse. When Streitel asked if that is what had happened, Henderson balked, saying that his diabetes had flared up and caused him to not be able to see clearly that night. He also said he had no memory of what had occurred.

But after Streitel told Bush she would not accept a plea unless he admitted to what Provencher presented, the two men stepped outside the courtroom and spoke for several minutes. Upon their return, Henderson acknowledged that he had “mishandled” the horse.

Said Bush afterwards, “It’s important to note what Mr. Henderson actually pleaded guilty to. He admitted that he was the one in the barn and that act alone and ill treated the horse. He did not and would not admit to anything else because he did not do what they said he did. This man trying to have sex with a horse is preposterous, and anyone who knows him would agree.”

People who are into zoophilia are not necessarily or always bereft of the opportunity to have sex with other human beings, and are instead sometimes literally attracted to animals sexually-- sometimes as a preference.

It's simply one type of paraphilia-- and while it is not common, it's also not incredibly uncommon. Expression of the paraphilia and acceptance of it was a bit more common in ancient cultures than modern ones, however.

It's also not the case that only males might feature this sort of paraphilia. It's a human trait, not a gender trait.

I figured, but I consider animals to be non consenting beings like children. Although I suppose sometimes they try to do it to us. Dogs come to mind, but I also have a male parrot that is always trying to hump my leg :laugh2:

JTM makes a good point - do you have a narrator voice? If so, we'd love to hear you recite somthing totally bonkers while maintaing the writing style we love.

Dirty birdy... :laugh2:

I've always believed that the laws against bestiality were in place because the behaviors themselves were a form of cruelty to animals.

A person who could be labeled as a zoophile might disagree, though-- and in fact, some do. While I won't call this a "populist movment", there are any number of people who are (mildly) activistic with regard to trying to "normalize" zoophilia.

As one might expect, those most inclined to become activists in this particular cause tend to express their opinions mainly over the Internet... the one person I saw who came forth publicly to try and put this issue into some sort of spotlight was a young woman who called herself "Whitney Wisconsin"... she did various videos to push her perspective, and ended up being arrested and charged with some crime or other as a result of her penchant for having sex with dogs.

She's easy enough to find on the web.

Interestingly, there are still some states where there are no laws against bestiality. Here's a map:

The map is dated, though: Ohio changed their laws (in 2016), just shortly after this particular graphic was first published on the Internet.

I live in Ohio. For a moment there I was freaked.

Yeah, but child molesters don't think they are wrong either (well, I'm sure some know they are, but I suspect we can't help who or what we are attracted to). However, despite the fact that they probably can't be changed we still make it illegal and try to protect children from them.

And I feel we should also protect animals from zoophiles.

And yes, it's not unusual for parrots to see humans as their mates.They see us as equals for one. And hand raised baby birds from breeders bond to humans at a very early age. Now Pete happens to be a wild caught parrot from before the CITES ban, but he still sees me as his mate.

Thank you for the compliment! :)

Others who've actually spoken to me would tell you that I have a baritone voice that is fairly soothing to listen to. It's not quite the same as that of Morgan Freeman-- but close enough for others to have made the comparison before.

One time I was watching "American Dad" with a friend. In the episode at hand, one of the characters-- a boy named Barry who usually speaks with an unpleasantly-pitched, gravelly and warbling sort of voice-- forgot to take his psychotropic meds and so reverted to the evil genius he actually is while in a non-medicated state.

Without the meds, his voice changed. It lowered in tone, became considerably smoother, and somehow, he also spoke using a British accent that was much like that of Alfred Hitchcock.

While noting that Barry had suddenly become highly intelligent and distinctly evil, one of the characters exclaimed, "And your voice! It changed..."

Barry smiled in a sinister kind of way and then said, "Yes, it has. It's sweet and terrible-- like a madman's lullaby."

Sweet and Terrible

The person who was watching the show with me said, "That's you! Your voice is sweet and terrible, like a madman's lullaby..."

And I just laughed. I told her, "Actually, my voice is deeper than Barry's. It's more like listening to a madman reading poetry..."
