FERNDALE - A Whatcom County man who had sex with a friend’s miniature horse has been sentenced to one month in jail, and banned from living with horses for life in Washington state, a Superior Court judge ruled this week.
About three years ago Seth Emmet Haynes, 19, replied to an ad on a bestiality forum where a Ferndale man, Robert Edward Carr, claimed he had “a couple of horses that needed a friend,” according to a Department of Corrections investigative report in Carr’s court record.
Over time they started meeting face to face, and Carr, 43, asked Haynes in August 2013 if he wanted to have sex with a horse that belonged to family members on Thiel Road, according to Haynes’ account in court records. Haynes agreed. He had intercourse with a miniature horse in the field, as Carr kept the horse calm, then Carr carried out the same act.
A couple of years later, in September 2015, two of Haynes’ roommates were using a computer that Haynes sometimes borrowed, when they stumbled across a pornographic video of a woman and a donkey. They called the sheriff’s office. They suspected Haynes downloaded the video: He had made sexual comments about animals in the past, where he talked about acts with dogs and intercourse with horses that belonged to a man named Bob, later identified as Carr.
