Annoying Neighbors Rant

So, here's the story. My neighbors who live beside our paddocks are so annoying! Their thirty year old children still live with, and they are so lazy that they don't get up until four o'clock. They have wind chimes all over their yard and back out of the driveway, only to pull back in again! Every time I'm out riding, they feel the need to mow their lawn, or stand around and watch. Then their daughter just went out and bought the most miserable dog you could possibly imagine. He sits out beside the fence all day until some one opens the barn door, and then he barks non stop, and the people don't do a thing about it! Just a few days ago, I was out walking Licorice around the fence, doing the usual lap to get him warmed up, then the stupid thing came through the fence, onto our property and went to bite Licorice, and they just sit out on their step and smoke! All of this is really annoying, but they pushed me past my breaking point last night. I was out riding last night, but when I got to the cedar fence that separates the properties, I noticed a large pile of crab apples laying on the ground, no where near any trees, and sitting on OUR side of the fence! I have no idea how many the horses have already eaten, and I was so PO I tossed them back into their yard.

Tell them they need to control their dog and keep it off your property, but other than that I really don't see how any of the above constitutes 'bad neighbour behavior' o.o. You can't prove they put the apples there, it could be a coincidence that they mow their lawn when you ride, and really the rest shouldn't concern you. You'd be a lot happier, I think, if you just ignored them and brushed them off. :p
My neighbor has dementia and is convinced he and my grandmother are married, his dog never stops barking, he's always mowing / doing yard work at odd hours of the night, but he's a really nice old man and we just brush it off.
The point is, everyone has crazy neighbors! :P

Most definitely! I'm glad our crazy neighbor is a 1/2 mile away

The dog would bother me a bit, if it is coming on your property & threatens to or does bite, I'd call animal control. Our neighbors dog liked to get in the pasture and bite ankles, we discussed it, didn't change. Called AC and it only happened once after that. When it did I let them know if I caught it on my property again biting my horses that I would take care of it with a deer slug & my 12 gauge.

My neighbor's dog comes to horse field sometime and I'm terrified to death my mares will hurt him. One of my mares is EXTREMELY unfriendly towards other live creatures (especially smaller ones) and hunt after everyone and everything on her property. :(

No advices from me, but I'm sorry you have such neighbors! That IS very annoying indeed!
