Thanks for all the responses! I tried to post on here about 2 days ago, but the internet wasnt didnt want to work with me.
So here we go.....a coworker of mine lives down the street from them, and has told me that they seem off, and seem to be into doing drugs and what not. I think I may wait on the freeze brand. Havent seen or heard from them since. I can tell you that since I have brought my horse home I have been paranoid about just about everything. But all the neighbors love him, and they all come out of their horse and watch when I bring him out. They watch him quite a bit when he's in his pasture as well, and all have offered to let me let him graze on their land, and use their manure for their gardens, ect, ect.
Funny, he's kind of a celebrity around here. But the gate is pad locked, and only I have the key to it. We have dogs that bark at ANY noise they hear outside, there are no trespassing signs up along the fence line. I have his registration papers, and current coggins. His markings, for those who don't know my guy, are VERY distinctive, and I have yet to see a horse with the same markings that he has. So besides getting cameras, is there anything else you suggest I look into?
My brother is now out of school as well, and he is home literally 24/7. My hubby and I have alternating shifts, so there is almost always someone home, that's reliable, as you can't count on my brother to do much.
Thanks for all the posts! They help more than you know!!
