She doesn't have any health problems or any issues getting around. She hasn't even slowed down. She actually scares some people because she's a strong German woman with a sharp attitude. My grandfather works the farm, and is home with her most days (just not always in the house with her) as he's out and about on the farm and takes 5-mile power walks around the neighborhood to stay fit. My grandmother is also not dumb enough to leave the house unlocked when she's by herself, or try to confront a stranger. She would simply take down his tags and call the cops from the safety of the house.
Perhaps I will just mention that "someone" is home at all times, since the word "grandmother" brings about images of a feeble old lady. ;)
Oddly, no one has seen this man at all since Tuesday. He has not been seen with his horse, walking around the neighborhood nor hand grazing on the hill.
We have been locking all of the barn doors except one at night, and he would have to rattle some chains and poke around a bit to figure out which one is unlocked. Unfortunately there is no way we can lock them all because of the way the barn is built. They have to be locked from the inside. And I hid Ursula's halter. It's the only one in the barn that fits her, so that should at least slow him down. We also left the outside flood lights on. We are thinking of posting some surveillance camera signs just to scare anyone away.
Sadly, my mom doesn't seem all that concerned. She says he's weird but doesn't think he has ill intentions. I don't know what gives her that impression because I wasn't there on Tuesday to witness the events. I will keep trying to convince her to take it more seriously and submit a statement. She should at least take down his plate numbers if she sees his truck or trailer again.
Have you heard the saying" it's always cold before the storm?"
Don't get relaxed assuming they went away.
