As most of you know, Carrie Young in the recent months, has been looking for “Ohana’s Forever Home.”

She put GREAT emphasis on a few statements made back in May 2014.

Carrie Young States: “I refuse to lower my standards of horse care. Ohana Rescue will NOT put 6 horses on 1 acre, much less 10 horses on 2 acres, in my opinion that is abuse. Horses need room to roam, graze and love life.

In August 2011, Ohana Rescue came to Brooksville, Florida. Many of us knew of Carrie Young through Facebook, some of us actually knew her, and some of us were about to really see a side of her they wish they had never seen.

I knew Carrie Young only as an acquaintance on Facebook, both of us running a similar operation. We welcomed her to town and invited her over to meet face to face.

While they were here, they counted hooved animals on our property and later filed a complaint against us with the Hernando County Animal Control. We are zoned 100% agriculture on 2 acres and are not governed by a “hoof limit” in our area.

After this, Carrie Young started attacking DERR through verbal comments, group defamation, and posting Facebook Notes to smear our reputation.

Carrie Young had started a hate group campaign to smear the DERR for residing on 2 acres.

Carrie Young went to the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners to try and change our zoning.

She even started a petition of falsehoods to outrage the community, so she could spearhead officials into changing laws.

She contacted Mike Deeson to do a segment against the DERR

She also had a friend of hers do an article against us in the Horse & Pony News.

Another friend, Maryann Tobin, wrote multiple articles against DERR and many people were rallied in to call Hernando County Sheriff’s Department, Hernando County Animal Control, Ag officers, Hernando Health, and DOA, including Carrie Young herself.

Carrie Young and Allan Wilson even filed a “violence” report against Robert Ashcraft, when Bob has NEVER touched a hair on their heads.

The more opposition Carrie Young brought into our life, caused me to research into her past.

Carrie Young first started Ohana Rescue at 11613 Hammond Drive, Hudson, Florida on a dirt lot consisting of 2.94 acres.

Carrie Young then moved Ohana Rescue and operated her facility between 2009-2011 at 12317 Morgan Road, Hudson, Florida on 1.24 acres. As you see in the pictures below, you will see the property mapped out in two equal sections. The front half is fenced in with the living quarters equaling half the property of 1.24 acres. The back section is also fenced off consisting of the other half of the 1.24 acres. It is safe to say that Carrie Young was operating Ohana Rescue on half of 1.24 acres, measuring approximately 0.62 acres.

On March 7,2011, Pasco County Animal Control reported to Ohana Rescue for a complaint of Carrie Young having “more” than 6 horses on 1.24 acres in Hudson, Florida.

On March 15, 2011, Carrie young had 6 horses on 1.24 acres and she was given 21 days to be in compliance. This report citation was also sent to the property owner.

On April 8, 2011, Carrie Young was sighted to have 3 horses on the 1.24 acres (sectioned off 0.62 acres).

Carrie Young was evicted from 12317 Morgan Road on June 16, 2011.

Carrie Young and Alan Wilson moved South to North Port, Florida and resided there for 2 months until they moved here to Brooksville, Florida in August 2011.

By September 2011, Carrie Young established Ohana Rescue on 40 acres here in Brooksville, Florida and spent 2 years trying her best to take out the underdog, forgetting where she once came from.

In May 2014, the property where Ohana Rescue resided was sold by the property owner and Ohana Rescue was forced to relocate.

After 2 years of Carrie Young attempting to close down our 2-acre rescue, she makes this informal, public statement.

Carrie Young States: “I refuse to lower my standards of horse care. Ohana Rescue will NOT put 6 horses on 1 acre, much less 10 horses on 2 acres, in my opinion that is abuse. Horses need room to roam, graze and love life.”

Carrie Young has most recently relocated Ohana Rescue at 16139 Seminole Blvd, Brooksville, Florida on 4.9 acres.

Although, Carrie Young has held true to her statement by finding a property size bigger than 1 to 2 acres for 6 to 10 horses, has she really changed her way of thinking?

She is on 4.9 acres that consist of a 2/2 mobile home, a guest house with pool, and acreage for the 9 equine she brought to the property.

If her living space consists of 0.9 acres, this gives her 4 acres for her animals to roam, graze, and love life, right? (just a guesstimation)

NO, Carrie Young has sectioned off at least 4 paddocks for 2-3 horses to reside in each paddock. How big is the size of each paddock? It is not relevant how BIG the size of your property is, if your horse only has 0.25 or 0.50 acre room to roam within his paddock.

As you can see in the pictures below the two sets of electrical tape that mark the front and back of the paddock, including privacy fencing at the back. The grounds are already bare and wearing into a dirt lot.

Besides the living quarters for the horses, there seems to be plenty of “human” living space.

After 2-1/2 years of being tormented by the owner of Ohana Rescue, I can somewhat piece the puzzle together on what and why this person has chosen to behave the way she has. Although, Ohana’s latest move only took her 7 miles further East, we are now separated by 20 miles.

I do not think there could ever be enough miles between us for the damage she has caused to repair itself, but I pray that one day we can continue to do what we love best, saving the horses in need.

***NOTE*** A RESCUE SHOULD NOT BE DEFINED BY IT’S PERIMETERS, BUT THE LOVE AND CARE GIVEN TO RESCUE, REHABILITATE, AND REHOME EACH ANIMAL.
