Ugh. Don't know what to do.

So I met this person last summer who lives near me. Her and her new husband have a few horses. Anyway, I randomly emailed her one day and just said that I knew who her husband was and that I lived near them, and if maybe I could work for her husband in the summer, helping out with their horses and stuff. She emailed me back and was really nice and I went over to their place a few times to help her feed the horses. Then, in December around Christmas, I got her a little gift to kind of say thanks for letting me help out with the horses and stuff like that. Well, I texted her and asked if they'd be around that day if I could drop it off. She said they were out and didn't know when they'd be home. I texted her again just asking when she thought they'd be home and she texted me back and she sounded a little.. not mad, but frustrated I guess. I didn't text or email her again until 2 weeks ago. I haven't heard back from her and I kind of want to know why/ if she's mad and why and I don't want her to have a bad impression of me. What should I do?

I'd suggest you to just go there and solve it out face to face. Or then if you feel it's ok and you don't need her anymore, just let it be and let her contact you if she feels so some day.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Sometimes it is a bad impression to just continue texting/email/phone call people constantly.. Let her be she will contact you if she needs you... she said, she didnt know when they would be home so that's your clue to just let her be and she let you know. She was frustrated because you asked after she told you..
Idk why she hasnt replied back but don't worry about it if she wants to be rude then don't worry about it. Give her a call and say can we talk and ask why she wouldnt reply to the email...
Good luck

So if I get this right, you are are trying to text her to see when you can come drop off the gift? Instead of texting her over and over(which is I'm guessing she could be getting annoyed with), simply stop by and drop it off by hand. If she happens to not be there, no big deal, leave there with a short little note.
Cheers!
