Pony stolen from Chester County farm, left abandoned, owner says

FORT LAWN, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – A bizarre situation taking place at a farm in Chester County where the owner says her pony was stolen and then left abandoned, tied to a tree.

Kati Gouge and her family opened Gouge Farms in Fort Lawn last year.

The homestead is a place Gouge invites the community to come out for farm days to learn about her dozens of animals on site.

She also takes in rescues and works to make them better for adoption.

On Friday, April 7th Gouge says she woke up to find the lock on her front pasture cut and her pony, Star gone.

She filed a police report with the Chester County Sheriff’s office and others helped look for Star.

Two days later on Sunday, Star was seen about a half a mile from the farm, tied to a tree. Gouge says they do not know who did this but they are just thankful Star is okay.

Gouge adds she now has cameras throughout her farm to ensure this doesn’t happen again as she plans for more community events with Star and her other animals.

The Sheriff’s office is investigating.
