On Saturday, Rick Harmon woke up to find four horses and two mules in his front yard. He said the animals had been dumped there overnight.

“It was Saturday about 8 a.m. in the morning” said Harmon, who lives in northeast Dickson County near the Cheatham Dam. “The dogs started to bark, and I looked out the window and they were almost on my front porch. I have no idea how they got here.”

He said he didn’t think the animals seem to be abused.

“They are all well taken care of. Some of their manes are cut,” he said.

After Harmon called the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy came out and scoured the neighborhood. Animal control deputy for Dickson County, Melvin Tidwell, also searched for the horses Monday.

“If nobody claims them, they will be sold or we’ll let a rescue group have them,” he said.

For more information on the animals, call Dickson County Animal Control at (615) 441-9591. Read full story >>

  1. dint the indians long while back use to trim the maines n tails.i hear also horse hair they use for blankets to weave in for the snakes stay away then.i think its cute and funny.maybe they came for breakfast…


  2. Did anyone question that these horses and mules may be stolen? Will Dickson Co make sure they are not sold to the many kill buyers in Tn? BTW I am a resident of this county.:


  3. There is nothing to say they were dumped, they could have gotten loose.
