Natisha, Yes I saw how they got out it was an opened electric fence gate what was down. There is really no way for it to be down but to have been taken down by human hands. The fence was electrified and it has multiple gate latches and nothing was broken my horses are very very respectful of this electric fence and normally wont go near it. PLUS I had seen them about an two hours before the "escape" and everyone was fine

So 'crazy neighbor' may have left them out, but the 'evil neighbor who beats his livestock' is the one who corralled them and called you?

Still doesn't mean he beat your gelding, just because he beats up on his own critters. Not defending him beating his animals mind you, just saying you can't tar him with the brush of blame for your own animal's injuries.

I do like the idea of cameras, even if they're just dummy ones. However, if 'crazy neighbor' is the one who let the animals out, cameras aren't likely to deter him if he's truly psychotic, dummy or real.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I am so sorry that happened to you boy! I would be super upset as well. I hope nothing further happens to your horses!

I think Natasha has a great idea. Put up some fake cameras. Or real cameras even.



I must say, I am not sure how watching your horses transfers to letting them out, beating them, or anything else.

I enjoy watching my neighbors few steers. I have no intent on letting them out or beating them or anything of the sort.

Can you put a lock on gate? That would be the easiest way to go as the guy wouldn't be able to let them out (unless he drag them over the fence of course).

And to everyone: there is no need to go snarky or defensive. Please, remember the Forum Rules!

I assume she means something like this.

Ohhhh ok I'm starting to get this now. The crazy neighbor sounds pretty suspicious if he was standing around your fence talking about getting your horses 'back.' Why doesnt you police officer friend deal with him though? If he's that crazy and has gotten into things on her farm before why doesn't she charge him or even give him a firm warning. Perhaps she should even look into his mental status if he's as crazy as he sounds? I just don't get why she's knowingly letting him run around, trespass, and get into peoples animals. As for the other guy, it doesn't make sense to me for him to beat an animal like that and then call you to come get him. Maybe the crazy neighbor tried to catch him and failed? I have no idea, either way I would be nice to both if them and invest in some cameras for the future safety of your horses.

That's an easy fix. Attach a small hot wire from the gate handle to the main fence so if someone tries to remove the handle they would have to get zapped. It will be inconvenient for you to use but the trouble may be worth it.

Hold on, but you GOTTA have gate there too, don't you? I used to board my horses in barn with electric fence, but the gate was normal tube gate from local TSC (like I use on my own fields). So why not to put a chain around and lock with the code lock or something.

OP, was the fence brought down? I have to re-read from the beginning then as I missed it.

Noper. No solid gate required.

Part of my fence is electric tape. The gate is three of those. Walking by it might look like just more fence if you look quickly.
