Animal cruelty charges to stick in escaped horse saga
The Sheriff’s Office took possession of the horse along with a miniature Shetland pony after the two were found to be in poor health.
The miniature pony later died while being held in a pen at the old animal shelter in Luling.
Capt. Pat Yoes, public information officer with the Sheriff’s Office, said in a statement that a large pile of fecal matter full of whole kernels of corn and worms was found next to the pony’s body.
Yoes also said it was determined that Breaux had been feeding the horses an improper diet their bodies could not fully digest.
Councilman Paul Hogan said he has received numerous complaints over the years about a stench in the area of Breaux’s home where she has been known to keep horses, pigs, chickens and even a bull.
Breaux said the reports about a stench in the area were related to a nearby trailer that had a burst sewage pipe and that the smell cleared up after the sewage leak was fixed.
Still, Hogan said he hopes to present an ordinance in the next few moths that would disallow anyone from keeping farm animals in the residential area encompassing Breaux’s home. Hogan also said a permit that was granted to Breaux to keep the farm animals in a residential neighborhood was granted for life, not five years as previously reported.
"It’s not fair for her neighbors to, somewhere along the line, sign a petition and then have to live with these animals for the rest of their lives," Hogan said.

Ama resident Glenn Singleton smiled as he fondly called being in attendance at the Louisiana Superdome nearly 30 years ago to watch his idol, Muhammed Ali, topple Leon Spinks to become the first-ever three-time world heavyweight champion in the boxing world. Singleton was part of Ali’s entourage and spent time at Ali’s camp as the all-time great prepared to face Spinks.
