A Marion County man was arrested Monday afternoon after he admitted to having sex with a miniature horse — repeatedly, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to ponying up to having sex four times in a week with the horse named Jackie G, 21-year-old Citra resident Nicholas Sardo told a detective that “he used a condom each time because he didn’t want to get a disease from the horse.”

Sardo is charged with four counts of sexual conduct with an animal. His bond is $4,000.

The sheriff’s office says a family member owns the horse. The sheriff’s office said Sardo told the detective that “he knew he was wrong for what he did and that he was a sick man.”

Under a Facebook post titled “Justice for Jackie G,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Office described how Sardo got caught riding the horse.

On Oct.16, a woman told the Marion County Sheriff’s Office she had seen Sardo having sex with Jackie G in a pasture. Another woman told the detective the same thing and that she’d talked to Sardo about it. She said he took responsibility.

Jackie G remains under the care of his owners.

“Stipulations of Sardo’s future contact with the horse could be determined by a judge in the near future,” the sheriff’s office said.

Robert E. Carr and Seth E. Haynes appear at the Whatcom Superior Court in the Whatcom County Jail Friday, Oct. 9, 2015, in Bellingham, charged with first-degree animal cruelty for having sex with a horse.
