The state of Michigan has targeted with investigation the owner of a horse farm who refused to sell to a Chinese Communist Party-linked company that proposed a battery plant nearby – a project that state officials had promoted, offered to fund and badly wanted.

A posting revealed Lori Brock, owner of Majestic Friesians Horse Farm in Big Rapids, was being investigated for runoff from her property into waterways.

She described that as nonsensical.

“For 20 horses on 150 acres, there’s no way I’m in violation of anything.”

Brock had refused to sell to Gotion, a company that, she said, lied about its ties to Communist China.

Then she held an anti-Gotion rally at her farm.

Her problem, of course, is that the governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is all for the battery plant and the state expects to contribute millions of dollars to the project.

And Whitmer’s attorney general, Dana Nessel, is overseeing the investigation into the alleged manure runoff from the farm.

The report said Brock, who built the farm 13 years ago and has never before had any issues, believes that the complaint is just “harassment.”

Gotion is a subsidiary of the Chinese company Guoxuan High-Tech Co. and it wants to build the massive plant to make batteries.
