An Aberdeen horse trainer will not be allowed to care for any animals for a year after pleading guilty to three misdemeanor counts of inhumane treatment of animals.
An attorney for 23-year-old Robert "Bobby" J. Haar, 23, entered the pleas on Haar's behalf on Wednesday.
The charges against Haar stem from his neglecting to properly feed and care for race horses. Two horses starved to death in November. The seven surviving horses were impounded by the Brown County Sheriff's Office.
Haar was sentenced on each count to 360 days in jail with all of the time suspended. He's prohibited from possessing, training, racing, owning or caring for horses or any other animals for a year while he's on probation.
