Ummm...yeah. Read the rest of what I wrote not just a snippet.
I did and I felt like I addressed that, I just didn't think a wall of quote was needed so you knew I was responding to your comments.
I want to respect your opinion, you have the right to it, but I can't.
When I told her to get off my property and why was she opening my gate and walking on my grass and dirt and she replied it's the only way she could get here. I told her can't you hear how stupid you sould when you say that. It's fine for her to come on my property and make a fuss, and I haven't even violated her stupid sign.
How on earth would she address an issue with you without coming onto your property?
Should she put a letter in your mailbox? (I think, not sure, that's illegal to do).
It's a perfectly normal response for neighbors to go to the door of a neighbor that they want to discuss something with. Or would you prefer she went to the police and they came to talk to you about it, without her having tried to resolve it at all personally?
My husband did go to the police department and made sure that we weren't doing anything we shouldn't be doing and was told that as long as we were 30feet from the center line we were fine, she doesn't own that, the state does.
I noticed she used the rightaway to get to my home.
If she had been nice about it, I probably would have avoided her rightaway just to keep a neighbor happy and I might avoid it anyways, just so I don't have a conflict with a neighbor. I haven't made my mind up yet on it.
Why deliberately keep upsetting a neighbor when it can be so easily avoided? I guess I must be some amazing neighborly person or something as I would never do that.
I really truly believe that if the child is not safe to ride on the road, then she is not safe to ride just slightly in from the road either. Of course if there is something terrible happening, ride right through their yard, but to just routinely do this just seems so unneeded.
I am trying so hard to wrap my head around this, and I guess I must be missing something. The point appears to be that she came onto your property and you are angry about that. I don't really see how that's particularly relevant to the riding issue - as this seems to be your issue not the neighbors.
Then it's for the child's safety that she simply MUST ride on this land rather than the road. How is she any safer being a couple of foot in from the road in an unfenced open area?
If the child safety is at risk from riding on the road why is she permitted to ride RIGHT NEXT to it?
I am really failing to get it. Your neighbor obviously doesn't share your love of horses, or your concern for the child. And there is no law that says she should.
But its not even owned by them - its public property which was intended for safe passage. Its not like someone is trying to walk over a flower bed. In fact - try planting a flowerbed in that area and watch how quickly the county "respects it" when they come by and mow it down. Anyone who moves out to the country should know that they risk humans, equines and/or canines walking on that part of their "property" since its not theirs. They may maintain it, but its not theirs and really, everyone in that county pays taxes towards the maintenance of it because usually the county does mow every so often and repair ditches that have been over eroded.
I have no idea about the legality of who owns it. And I don't really see why it matters all that much. The neighbor maintains the land, she looks at it, it is attached to her property. She doesn't want the child riding on it, and there is no reason why the child should ride on it.
Is it really worth escalating this issue just because? What happens if they start passing their car too closely while the child is riding the horse on the road or the verge next to the road? Or sounding a car horn repeatedly while the child is riding past?
There are a million and one situations where this could get so ugly and it is so easily avoided. I just don't see the point at all.
