Nov. 1, 2011 — For several weeks now, the paper has been writing a story on a horrifying situation brewing at the horse stable, Whispering Pines, located of Highway 36, outside of Susanville.
Rumors abounded that the owner Dwight Bennett was not feeding dozens of horses and worse yet left two dozen to die.
Unfortunately, gathering information for the story and wading through the facts and fiction of the alleged animal cruelty took time.
Now, before you write me off as a complete whacko, wondering who in their right mind would consider it special to spend any amount of time in a hospital, I can explain.
Oh, I’m also a newly ordained poster-child for following the doctor’s orders, but we’ll get to that.
