Some one called animal control on my boss because he 'blind folded" his horses out in the pasture... (fly masks) LOL

That rocks!!! My grandparents had a similar incident with city people and the private airport they lived on. Different things, I know, but same situation.

Thanks for my morning laugh, blind folds...
I worry about that too. When my hay feeder is low it may look empty from the road. Or someone turning me in because there is horse poo in the lot or who know what. Nice to know the AC people would be understanding.

I know a lot of people here are amazed at some of the things people might misinterpret as cruelty or neglect, but remember that we're mostly horsepeople here, or at least have some vague ideas of what's normal and what's not. Most people don't have that knowledge. It might feel a bit insulting to have animal control or something like the RSPCA called out to your home, but surely if there's nothing wrong you and the AC officers can just have a laugh at the misunderstanding, and be glad that people are looking and caring, and animal control are actually coming and checking out potential problems?

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

We only feed Hilly in her stable and when in her field she just happily grazes.
It annoys me SOOO muh that people feed her. Someone chucked over a huge sack of apples that she was happily munching on! Gah! She's plump enough as it is!
