I should lead off by saying I have no patience what so ever for people who can't control their dogs. I have 5 dogs myself and it's not that hard.
On to the problem....
Neighbor's dogs routinely get loose and come to "play" with my horses.
Neighbor thinks it's fine because "they're only playing" and other neighbors with horses don't care.
I informed Neighbor that my big TWH is most certainly NOT playing and that I don't want to see her precious pooches injured/killed.
Neighbor promises to keep dogs home.
Several days later....
Neighbor's dogs return and I catch one and tie it up.
Called neighbor to come collect her ill-mannered doggie.
Informed her that if the dogs belonged to anyone else, they would have met the business end of a bb gun by now.
Neighbor tells me to "do what I have to do" because the dog escapes the fence, she REFUSES to tie it up, and claims there is simply no solution.
Neighbor doesn't care if I call the dog catcher because they're apparently "friends" and "he knows her and knows this dog can't be contained."
This is the same neighbor that runs a boarding kennel, and up until recently a dog rescue, from her home, making the situation that much more strange.
Got parental advice - treat dog like any other stray.
Advertise as "Stray, Free to Good Home" or take to the pound because anyone who would rather see their dog shot or trampled is obviously not too concerned with their pet's health and well-being.
If horses are injured in any way because of the dogs, send neighbors the bill.
Is that a reasonable solution?
How do you deal with dogs bothering your horses?
