    I've also been known to drive my ATV in laps around my circular driveway giving kiddos rides.

    Or if I am feeling extra lazy, I'll take the ATV down to the road to meet the school bus.

    I live next door to a boarding facility, boy do I feel sorry for those people, seems like someone is always riding whenever I go mow my lawn.

    After many years of working in law enforcement, I've found most people will deny the obvious! But, I always try to play nice first.

    Man, if you get to go postal on your neighbours for doing things like that, I should be able to start an all out war with mine!

    My property borders a residential area! I have one neighbour who likes to start his obnoxiously loud motorbike several times a day just to hear it run. Here I was shrugging it off and figuring it would he good to get the horses used to unexpected loud noises!

    Then of course there is the man who is a member of the RSPCA and feels the need to stick his head over the fence and check that I am adequately caring for my animals! I figured at least I have an extra pair of eyes looking after their well being!

    Then there is the man who lives on the neighbouring property. His house is a way away so I don't hear much from him. Oh, that is until he takes his helicopter out for a joyride. Again I figured at least my horses will be the quietest horses around!

    And of course there is the woman who boards ON our property who insists on bringing enough treats for all the horses, including those that belong to me...

    Ok, I have a solution. When you pick up the horse poop that is generated from ingesting these extra apples, deposit it back at the source. Was technically theirs to begin with. Thank goodness I don't have any close by neighbors, really good thing actually because I sometimes pretend I am Lady Godiva with my horse

    HC, you sound like a very smart horse owner. I believe you are being way too freaking logical though. Please stop that.

    When we had a one lane drive it always seemed that the car that was blocked in was the car that was needed at the moment. Sometimes it involved one person doing all the moving too. Back out the one vehicle and park on the shoulder of the road, run up the drive and back out the second vehicle, park on the shoulder of the road. Get back into the first vehicle and pull it back into the driveway. Finally get into the second vehicle and head off to whatever you needed that specific vehicle for.

    I think that you are jumping off the deep end as far as the OP is.
    Asking about giving some horses some apples is very different than asking the drug dealer if the huge pile of cocaine is his.
    Just saying.


    OP, I am confused by one thing.
    You say that they dump apples and they are in your way and you have to kick them back and they attract bees and are a tripping hazard. You also say that your horses come in with sticky lips (eating the apples).
    Which one is it?
    I have yet to meet a horse that says 'oh boy, I have eaten my fill of apples, I will just leave the rest of these here for later on'.

    I've never considered myself to be excessively logical...until I joined internet forums.
