I wasn't sure where to post this but I am just venting..... So last night I noticed 2 trailers going down to the neighbors house right behind my barn. I was thinking "what on earth?". Let me give you a little history about these folks. They live right below our property and have about an acre. They have 5 or 6 kids 4 of which are teenagers. They have lived there for over 5 years and all they do is buzz up and down the hill behind my barn on their moterbikes and 4 wheelers. They have 2 dogs, one that has been in trouble for chasing my horses a few times. Anyway I guess they just got 2 horses. Well this morning, I went down to get my mare to take her to our shoer and she was standing by the fence visiting with the new horses. I noticed this yearling stud colt hung up on my fence!!! They had left the rope halter and lead on him overnight and he was all tangled up on one of my cross posts. So after I got him loose I took the halter off and tried to make sure he wasn't hurt but he just took off. I was soo pissed at them for leaving this on him I took the halter off of the other gelding out there too and walked over to the house to give them back and let them know that it is not a good idea to leave them on their horses but no one was home.
Well about 1/2 hour ago my husband was outside getting our tractor running and the neighbor lady came over asking if he knew who took the halters and lead ropes off her horses. Kris told her I did and why and she flipped out!! She started yelling saying that I wasn't to touch her horses and especially not take any tack off of them ever!! She didn't even realize that the colt was stuck on my fence after he told her!!! She said how the hell am I expected to catch him if he dosn't have his halter on......idiots!!!
Now that I am sure these people know nothing about horses I am worried that they have a young stud next door and do not want to let my mare out of her paddock for fear he may get through my fence. That would be just my luck!!! I should have took pictures this morning just in case something were to happen.
Sorry for venting so long, but I'm really upset!!
