I know they use horse and buggies, but why doesnt the amish not clean up the horse poop left by their horses?especially at crocketts iga store, the horses leave huge piles of poop and also in town on the streets when they pass through the streets are filled with piles of horse manure, now if the rest of us had one of our dogs and they shit on the street or o parking lot we would be required to clean it up, why not the amish? these horses make a real mess, looks like a stockyards or something, carlisle doesnt need horseshit all over the streets.

Some communities require the horses to wear sanitary bags to catch the waste (I kid you not). Go to a Fiscal Court meeting and make your feelings known. It is a legitimate complaint and it has a workable solution; all you have to do is go through the proper channels to get it handled.

Because they live on Burris Rd and people who live or have lived on this road don't take anyone's s*#t, and/or their horses. LOL

Fair is only fair. Those driving vehicles should be responsible for the carbon monoxide produced by said mode of transportation.

so i guess you think we should all get a horse and buggy and stop driving cars, whenever I see a car take a dump in the road I'll start riding a bike, you're an idiot

i agree, they should be required to either clean up the crap or put a bag on the horses rear end, i dont think that is too modern to be against their religion

The Amish are nasty. Try being their neighbor. I wake up some mornings to find big piles in my driveway! Their horses are always getting lose and so you never know where there might be a pile. Also not to mention trying to dodge the shit in the road after washing my cars and going 10 ft down the road and not being able to dodge any of it! The smell is disgusting! I cant even sit outside anymore because of the stink,they are always spreading shit all over their land. They wonder around all night long and make my dogs bark. They are really creepy and smelly and I wish they would leave!!

I agree the smell of spreading the poop over there farm is terrible for a few days. I have to endure it ever so ofter at my own place because it's just something that farmers do, not just Amish farmers. Luckily it does go away after a while. You are lucky that your neighbor doesn't race their motors and play their car stereos all night long. That also makes the dogs bark and very hard to get to sleep. Cattle get out also and their messes are harder to clean up than horse piles. The Amish I have met here seem like nice people, could you could maybe talk to them about the problems and see if they will fix their fence so the horses don't get out?

i agree smelly, i think they need their own village or somewhere for all of them to live, they dont believe in anything modern anyway, i know some of the younger ones are not going by their rules, I've seen some young amish dudes buying beer at IGA and riding in a truck. I know people are free to believe what they want but where in the bible do they get the idea that modernizing and living in the present is wrong? but the main point is like you said, the nasty horse poop, and I couldnt imagine living around people like that.

The Amish do drink lots! Miller Lite I believe. And they love moonshine, I have witnessed it myself. I dont even think Mexicans gather like these Amish do. I mean you will see 100's of them and then suddenly they are gone! It's like some kind of cult! Some people think it would be so nice to be living next to little house on the prairie but let me tell ya, these ppl are nothing like Charles Ingalls! And my neighbors and I have discussed the smelly situation with them concerning the surprizes in the driveway and they dont seem to think it's a big deal. They may be "nice" ppl, but they have simply come into our community and they do as they please with no respect or regard for our county. My home had a great view and fresh air until these ppl came, now I'm bombarded by shit everywhere I look. I hope they all pick up and move soon. The whole cult!

if i were you I would put all the shit in bags and go dump it on their property and in their horse buggies, and i like you hope they all move, and i sure as hell hope there are not hundreds of them here, next thing you know they'll be moving in town, then what? they wont be able to keep horse in town, maybe they'll switch to a bike, well no they cant, thats too modern, i guess good OLD FASHIONED walking will have to do.
nice

You sound like a real neighborly person so can't imagine why they would move.

Having visited a few Amish homes I would have to agree, they smell...like fresh baked bread and cookies, and lemon waxed furniture. The barns smell like hay and cows and sheep, and the gardens smell like fresh turned dirt and flowers. They're working farms, people, like people used to have. Is it really the smell you hate, or just the fact that they look and act differently? Get a book, find out a little something about their religious beliefs, then see if you can live a little easier with them as neighbors. It might be better than a group of Hell's Angel's.
enjoy the smell huh

It's easy to threaten people who won't fight back, especially when you don't have to show your face, isn't it? All the Amish want to do is farm their land and worship in their own way. They don't take anything from the government, they're not on welfare and they don't contribute to the crime rates. But they look different, so let's hate them. And horse poop smells bad, so let's have a fit about that, too.
There's an easy solution to it; go to the county officials and get a simple law passed to keep the poop off the roads. But that would take all the fun out of the hating, wouldn't it? They're different, so let's hate them. Sounds a lot like Hitler, or the KKK, or the Taliban. I thought American were better than that.
