Thank you. She had no rite to be pissed at me! Her horse was hung up on my fence!!! I walked strait to her house and was going to explaine but she was not home at the time. So the dumb#@$ left the poor thing with a rope halter and lead on while no one was around at all.

Whoever said they'd be pissed I understand but we obviously know a little more and have a little more common sense than this woman. You wouldnt catch me leaving a rope halter and lead on any horse ESPECIALLY unattended.

Also no, she won't listen to a word I have to say. If the horse gets hung up again becuase of the halter I will take it off again and hang it on their fence. My getting in a little trouble is better than an injury to that horse or a child because of their ignorance.

Thanks again

It's not illegal, but as far as I am concerned IT SHOULD BE!! Especially with a lead and when there is no one around. I don't care that she is pissed and I will do it again if he happens to get hung up. I do understand you saying that you would be upset, but you need to realize the situation in this case. If he has that **** halter and lead on tonight again unattended, I am going to call the sheriff for a welfare check, not to mention I still have not seen anyone delivering hay.

Your neighbor has every right to be upset with you. Reverse the situation and think of how you would feel if she did something with your horse knowing absolutely nothing about the situation.

A much better approach would of been to let the horse loose and IMMEDIATELY call your neighbor.

I hope you can smooth things out or it will be a long summer.

Ditto! You should free him and personally I'd do it to, but just should of do it in different way. Such people can be very nasty back to you if they think you violated their rights. Good luck on smoothing the situation!

There would not be a "reverse situation". Common..........you would leave your horse out in pasture with a rope halter and lead on? He was hung up. I IMMEDIATELY went to their door to explaine and also did so when she returned home. They are idiots....end of story and I don't need to know anything about their reason as to "why" they left that crap on him. IT IS NOT SAFE.

That was my approach. Minus the phone call. I went to their door.....oh and I tried to call and explaine to her last night but she does not have a phone, so I did the best I could with what is available. I'm not the jerk here.......

So if they see something on your property they feel they should step in and help with - it's ok?

You have your mind made up. It's really sad. You are in a position to help them and in turn make dealing with them easier. Instead you are turning into a narrow minded person.

If one of my animals needed help (like this one did) I would be thankful if they helped.

I want to help them. I was not the one who would not listen and was being narrow minded. I am not that type of person. I posted this to vent, not to be put down. I am having a hard time seeing where I am the one in this situation who is being railroaded as the jerk when I came across and young animal all wrapped up in a fence and possibly would have choked to death if someone had not found him.

I do agree that I went too far by taking the halter off of the other horse too and will apologize when I get the chance. That was an act out of sure frustration. In the beginning when I went to the door I just wanted to let them know what had happened and let them know the dangers of leaving the halters, especially w/leads on their horses out in pasture without anyone around are. I also wanted to ask if there was anything special they were planning to do with the stud and get a feel for what they knew. Unfortunately, she is the one who judged and would not even listen to what had happened to her horse.

I know that I may have made myself sound like one of "those" snotty neighbors, but I'm not. Even though I was so frustrated about the whole ordeal at the time, I was only wanting to lend a hand. I'm just disapointed that some of you think that I was completely in the wrong, when it is obvious that they didn't know what dangers leaving the halters and lead on the horse imposes. I don't care if they were using it for some sort of crazy training purpose. I wanted to have the chance to let them know how things could have turned out. I also have an arena and round pen I would have gladly offered for them to use. Anyway, I really am not the one who messed up here other than venting and making myself sound like the A hole : )

Im personally against halters on horses in turn out. However, I'm not going to take a halter off someone elses horse UNLESS they are in danger due to the halter like this one was (Being caught up in a fence).

I would free the horse, then take the halter over to the woman and explain what happened. Suggest a breakaway halter or something. KT apparently tried to do that but the owner wasn't home.

Personally, I wouldnt care if anyone was pissed so long as the horse wasn't caught on my fence. If she continues to turn him out in a halter, fine but I wouldn't just let the horse stay stuck there.

Montana does have an open range law, meaning you are responsible to fence out anything you don't want trespassing. However, it does NOT apply to studs. You can call your local brand inspector for clarification. Owners are required to keep stallions contained in Montana.
