P.I.T.A Neighbors (LONG RANT)

My horses are kept on a private farm. Wonderful little place, wonderful BO, but with a pain in the A** neighbor. Shortly after moving there last fall, she came over to the shared fence line & asked all about my gelding & donkey that I had. Answered all her questions politly, then she procedes to tell me everything that she thinks is wrong with my BO & the way the farm is kept. I just nodded & let it go in one ear & out the other. A few weeks later, I get there to see her in our pasture, brushing my boys. I walk out to get them & she informs me that she never see's me out brushing them & she can't stand to see animals neglected. WHAT?!?!?! She was also complaining that she never saw them get fed. Well, their hay feeder is in the run in part of the barn & I don't grain till it's really cold. Your not going to see their hay feeder from her place. A few weeks after that, while I was working Jack, she comes to the fence & asks me who my farrier is, cause she doesn't like the way Jack's feet look. She hands me a card & told me I had to make an appointment with her farrier. She doesn't like the way I fix the fences, she doesn't like the way I work my boys, she doesn't like the way I'm feeding. This lady is offically become a "crazy B$%&! In my book. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I sold Jack & brought home my 2 new geldings. I have refused to go anywhere near the shared fence. I take the boys to the far side of the farm to work, groom & ride. Every time she see's me, she runs to the fence line & trys to get my attention. I just wave & walk away. My BO has told her to stay off the property, so she won't cross the fence, but she is going nuts trying to get me to come talk to her. Since I've been ignoring her, she has started bugging the other neighbors about what they know about my new horses. I'm going to end up going postal on this lady! I just want to enjoy my horses, not deal with this crazy bat! How do I get her to leave me alone!

Keep doing what you're doing, hopefully she'll get tired of running the fence line.....LOL, I have a dog who does that, OCD to the bone! Only other alternitive is to move the horses and it sounds like you have things under control now, so I wouldn't.

I'd tell her that they are your horses, you don't abuse them, and their well cared for. Tell her to leave you alone as you don't talk with ignorant people. Tell her she's a crazy person too.
Lol sorry I don't think that's the right response. Maybe someone can be more helpful here. That lady is a crazy woman and that would turn me into one mean b$&@h.

Lol ya I think your reaction is closer to the right one.
I've had a neighbor somewhat like that in the past. Not as bad though. I would act as if they didn't exist.

I would be like my horses, my rules, my training methods and schedules. Mind your own please.
Keep doing what you doing though, if she starts bugging again. I would politely say do mind your own business, i've had my horses for X amt of years and have been doing this for such an such as long. If you don't like the way I do things, then please keep your opinions to yourself, and go about your business. Thank you have a nice day!!

Call the police. I would not have answered any of her questions, not her business. Document everything!

What are the police going to do, other than laugh and hang up on you?

She is being harassed. Document every time this happens and every time the police are called. Do nothing and it will never stop.

Thats not harassment. OP needs to stand up for themself, calling the police will do nothing.

IF you want the police involved, get cameras, and try and catch her traspassing.
