My neighbor said in Oregon/Clackamas County, there is a limit of one horse per acre. Is this true?

Thank you for your question. Here are the laws I am able to find on this topic: Oregon City Municipal Code: 6.07.030: one hooved animal per 20,000 square feet (https://library.municode.com/or/oregon_city/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=TIT6AN) Clackamas County Code: 821.01 For each large animal (except foe ones under 6 months): one per 25,000 square feet (https://dochub.clackamas.us/documents/drupal/fffcf2e9-c42f-466c-9816-9bc1308bb605) An acre is 43,560 square feet. So, your neighbor is correct in there being both city and county laws, but is incorrect in the space requirements.
