To the editor:
We were saddened to learn that the city of New Ulm has given Charles and Roberta Hintz 30 days to move their horse from their property. Since we moved to our home in 1976, we, our children and grandchildren have enjoyed the horses on this historic property. We, along with many others in the neighborhood have enjoyed feeding a carrot or two to the horse. The horse, paddock and barn are part of the character of the neighborhood and New Ulm.
The current horse is too old to ride, but it is a pet and brings delight to many of us. We hope that the New Ulm City Council will allow the current horse to live out its remaining days on the Hintz property. If you also have fond memories of the horses, please contact your city council representative and encourage them to vote to allow the horse to remain.
