Exactly. Police won't do anything. There is no physical harm being done to the person or her animals. Their hands are tied and there is nothing they CAN do.

Do your best to ignore her. Hopefully, she will get the hint and leave you alone. Or, try telling her outright to leave you the H*(( alone and see what happens.

I agree with Pat, she will eventually get tired of running the fenceline. Don't be calling the police, in fact don't give the nosy bag any attention at all, don't acknowledge her. If you didn't have to listen to her goofy talk, I would be inclined to keep letting her groom your horses, in fact I'd ask her if she was interested in washing your car & cleaning your tack! Kidding of course, keep ignoring her.

If I found anyone not from the property I was boarding on grooming my horses in their field, they would be receiving a letter from a lawyer warning them about the consequences of trespassing and harassment of livestock. That is absolutely uncalled for and scary!!!

Where you are now in your situation, I would continue to ignore her and if she does ever talk to you, I would give her "the look" right as soon as she started telling you what to do, and then if she continued, just leave. I have no tolerance for people who will tell you to your face how your horse care is wrong when you haven't even asked their opinion and are not in any was associated with them.

I would also document your interactions, as previously stated, in case there is theft/abuse/etc.. and so you have evidence if you need to take legal action. One of my best friends had a long term relationship and the guy was nice enough, but turned out to be weird and creepy, stole a bunch of my friend's work stuff (incl. a $3000 Macbook) and started stalking her. She ended up getting a restraining order against him and multiple attempts with police escorts did not see her Macbook or multiple software programs returned to her. Be really careful and document, document, document. You don't know if this lady is at the end of her rope of creepy, or just starting to get creepy.

Good luck!

They say money doesn't buy happiness -- well happiness doesn't buy horses!

I would be pissed if someone entered my horses field without my permission. let alone the fact one of my horses could/would trample her if she wasn't forceful enough.

but since that has long since passed hopefully.. i would be given the glares!! you know those glares that go right through someone as to say i see you but i dont give a f#$%

i would also not put them up in that turnout if at all possible. or if its possible maybe the bo can put up hot wire along the fence so if she touchs it to climb in she will get a nice wake up call...

good luck op i would have already went bonkers on her and would have told her if you feel they are so bad call animal control. lets see what they say. usually they stop right then and there.

I guess I just enjoy messing with people to much,,,, I think I would start hitting on her, hahahaah,
"So uhhh hey baby how u doin ? "
My usual reaction to horse knowitalls is generally to mess with them. Drives em nuts. Works really good if you have smart ass answers already preplanned,,,,,

Used to love it when people would constantly stress over what kinda horse I had. Or more specifically stress that I didnt know or care. Honestly I had no idea, he was a big white horse. with a bone jarring trot, sometimes he sorta half gaited I think.
What kinda horse is he , quarter horse ?
"nope, he's full horse"
I think your neighbor sounds like alot of fun.

Joe, you're the kind of person I aspire to be. My mom tells me it gets worse (better?) as you get older, it can't get here fast enough for me!
