Easton farm owner denies neglecting horses

The owner of an Easton horse farm is denying allegations of neglect after the state Department of Agriculture removed five horses from his property yesterday.

Officials say a witness called them after seeing a sickly horse, limping at the Pee Wee Farm on Silver Road.

Paul Vitton says he has a different philosophy when it comes to horse farming.

Officials say the farm was warned back in October that the animals needed to be checked by a veterinarian.

The state also says there is not enough shelter for the horses.
