Something fishy here, with the neighbours being rude about giving out any information. Did they act scared to talk, or embarassed?

Go through your area's newspaper archives and see if anything was written up about the place.

Ask at the local police detachment if they ever had calls out to the property.

There's got to be something you can dig up. Sounds like a good detective outing to me.

I am very sorry about your horse, though

Geez, how is it that some rural areas and small towns can be so unwelcoming and not helpful? My town was like that, but it is getting better. I feel for you, RP.

You can look in the municipal property taxation office (don't know what it is in the US) for a history of the property's transactions. That should get you names of previous owners. You could also try previous owners of neighbouring properties.

Perhaps a local or county agricultural organization would have some geological, agricultural and wildlife information that would be interesting? If there is a wildcat around, you might not see it on the cameras. They are notoriously hard to spot.

But what about the horses acting weird in the stalls?


My sister is helping me look, she even looked at the records of the property. The longest a person has lived there is a year, the shortest was two days.

And don't forget the dogs. That's just, well....kind of creepy. Hoping there is a logical explanation. I should have added in my other post that I'm sorry for the loss of your Sal. : (

^^^^this.

The fact that no one will talk to you, even if you "aren't from around there" and the fact the previous owners lived there a year or less, something's up somehow-someway.

What about the odds of you sitting on top of an old Native American Burial ground?

I have not only heard stories but know of someone who built a home and kept saying their house was haunted. Naturally we all laughed and told them they drank too much.

They did some research and discovered they had built their home on land that had once been held sacred to a tribe of Indians specific to our area

I happen to be one of those people that believes in things that can't be explained by science. I don't dwell on them and I do look for scientific reasons first but when all fails-----------------------

There's an explanation for sure -- that is evident by the fact nobody wants to talk about it

If it is a wildcat (or other predator) it may have sprayed in or near the stalls, making the horses nervous when they smell it and that would make your dogs crazy too. You wouldn't smell it.

So go to the local game warden.

But, if it is a wild cat then why is my other horse who is now next door acting normal? Is the cat just skittering around that property?

I believe in the other side as well but my first reaction when things started getting weird was eliminated the more logicial things. My child hood home had a spirit in it but it was a more caring, good natured one.

I was asked for pictures of my property. The huge field is the main pasture, though you can not see the fence line, and the smaller corrals near the barn have yet to be used. Then there is my little house shaded by the two trees. The pasture line ends near the black line I drew, only it is straight and more in a shallow gulley.

Its haunted! That was my first thought after ruling everything else out. Contact your local ghost investigators (or whatever they are called), have them come out and see what they find.

Heck, you've tried everything else. Odd that no one has stayed at the place longer then a year.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

This thread intrigues me! I'm always interested in things that are not always easily explainable. Can't wait to hear about updates!
