I really am starting to dislike the neighbor that lives down at the end of my road. His freaking horses get out ALL THE TIME!!! This morning at 1 am my neighbor across the street comes knocking on my door that there are 2 horses in his backyard and he was checking if they where mine. So I trudge over there in my slippers and sure enough neither of them was my horse. Now it does not bother me one bit that the guy across the street came over I'm glad he did at least I could check if they where mine what ticks me off is what happened next.
Anyway I go to get a few lead ropes and try and once again catch this other guys horses (this will be the 5th time I have had to do this since I moved to this house) Anyway both the horses take off down the road towards where they live. I go in the house to get coffee. I hear a truck tearing up and down my driveway so I go out to check it out. The horse is running around my pasture with my old mare jogging along in the pasture trying to keep up. The idiot is CHASING the horse with his truck!!!! He tells me that it is my old mares fault that he can't catch him because she is in heat and he is showing off. First off this mare is 33 years old and does not go into heat anymore (thank GOD she is a bear to deal with) and even if she was she is in her pasture and not the one that is running loose. So I try to help him catch his horse. 1 hour later he is still running loose. It is getting close to time for me to go to work so I decide that I might as well feed my horses, since he is complaining that they are getting in the way of him catching his!!! So I start to feed this guy has the nerve to tell me that I need to stop taking care of my guys and help him catch his uncatchable horse!!!!!!!!!!
Well I get all my horses in their pens and feed so that they are no longer "interferring" with him catching his horse. And we try to "trap" his horse in between my pool fence and the pasture (there is a large area to walk through not small) so I FINALLY get his horse to let me start touching him and this guy comes up behind me and scares him off and the horse preceeds to RUN RIGHT OVER ME. I get up and tell him that I am done he can catch this guy on his own. This horse stepped on both my feet and knocked me over and stepped on my bad knee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This guy was so rude to me and my horses that I doubt I will ever help catch his horses again. Telling me that my horses where being brats and even trying to go as far as smacking my one horse cause she squealed at his horse. Good ol fancy came darn close to bitting him (she is not fond of strange men)
Sorry for the novel but I just had to get that out.
