Pretty much. Just put it on the outside or something. Maybe try and make it dangerous down there for the fourwheelers. Would you really get charged if they are tresspassing in the first place? If it were me, I'd sit outside with a gun and wait for those people to come back. (But then again, killing them might not be the best answer. Dx Darn.)

I wish I could put high voltage fencing, but I can't even get a grounding rod in the ground it like a solid rock ( it took us four hours to put in 10 posts, it wasn't fun). We put up a junk pile in the middle of the path, someone was ranting on how they didn't know where to put a couple of old sheds and we happily let them put them right on the path (it is gov'n land ) So if anyone wants to come up they have to move a six foot wide by eight foot deep pile of boards with a few nails and who knows what else. We put a buck fence on Mooney's side to make sure if she ever got out of the pasture she wouldn't be getting into the junk pile.

And I can't wait to get away from the people that tear up fences, throw rocks at my horse (they have been dealt with very quickly), feeding her treats (she was sick for a week and they still do it!). I've put up with it but I am glad she'll be at home, plus my new neighbors to be are excited as ever (mind you I am closely related) to have a horse and pony moving in.

I am so sorry to hear that, its bad enough they feel it ok to rip down your fences which as a result could have ended up with Mooney seriously hurt but then to go on like that and throw things off her, its completly out of order. I dont think people realise how long it takes to get back their trust if they loose it, not even to think about how much it hurts us to see or how dishartening it is when you come outside to see everthing youve put in destroyed over night, its a disgrace and yet it will never stop, complete morons thats all it is.

yeah, I know what you mean Nina, I don't know what I would do if I found Mooney was seriously hurt, I mean I have the back up money set a side for emergency but I don't have any other place to bring her. Mind you I would force my step father to let me bring her into her barn no matter what if that is what she needs. I am hoping it doesn't happen again until she gets her new home, it is a little unnerving wondering if she's safe at night.

Well hopefully they will realise how silly theyve been and wont do it again. I hope all goes well for you chick and try not to worry too much, its just silly little people that have nothing better to do then cause upset for everyone else. Everything works out in the end :) just gotta keep ur chin up
