The alleged abuse?

The horses were wearing flymasks. The caller thought the horse owner was keeping the horses blindfolded!
HAHAHAHA, OMG some people are too hilarious to handle!

Now, that all this animal abuse crap has been done. Look what some lovely person dumped at my place. I caught him and tied him up, but look at this dog! Where in the heck is someone to call about this?! My neighbor even came down and asked if I knew who it belonged to because he has one just like it at his house!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

Some people just have no idea when to remove their noses from other people's business.

Our property is pretty much the "beginning" of rural country in our town. So one of our fences borders a residential area. A residential area that just so happens to be home to one particular old busybody who has taken it upon himself to "check" on our animals. We have found him wandering around the property on several occasions, checking water troughs and such. He always has some excuse or another (latest one is that he is looking for a kite his grandkids lost), but it is all too obvious that he is inspecting the care of our animals.

While the man gives me the creeps and we have asked him not to come on the property uninvited, I've got nothing to hide as far as the upkeep of any of our animals so it wasn't that huge of a deal. Until he started on with the "your farrier is doing a crappy job" (horses have never had better feet than they have right now), "its too late to break that horse in now" (10 year old standardbred gelding who has been off the track 2 years and is now coming along brilliantly as a riding horse) and then talking to a lady who agists here and saying things like "I wouldn't let my horse (not that he has one!) drink from that trough!" (a trough which may I add is cleaned out regularly, always full and has water in it clean enough for a person to drink!).

Yeah, we'll be getting a new private property sign soon!

The parn I board at is right near a native reserve... we get lots of wandering canine visitors. It's lovely (not).

I would call the whatever rescue is in the area if they don't have collars or anything and send them in, personally. Especially if they are not neutered (and that skinny), then you know that they haven't had shots or anything.

Good luck with finding a place for the dogs! Hopefully a rescue will take them...

Like HC, I live on a suburban fringe, so get all of the city folk buying expensive property behind ours for the view over the 'country'.
Of course, these city folk turned 'country' because they now have a view of a paddock out their front window, are self proclaimed experts on livestock.

We have 2 alpacas, pretty big buggers, probably the size of fairly tall ponies.
The newest neighbour saw the boys out of his window one day, they had just been shaved so looked quite ridiculous. Neighbour thought they were horses. Called the RSPCA, saying that we had 2 severely emaciated horses on the property, so skinny that they had NO meat on their necks or legs, and had chewed each others tails off out of hunger (clearly the knee high grass is not edible for horses ;) ).
RSPCA inspectors were bent double cracking up laughing when they saw these terribly emaciated horses!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also had the RSPCA called when a neighbour saw my mare laying flat on her side in the arena, doing what she loves to do, sunbaking in the sand, fast asleep.
Neighbour told the RSPCA that she saw me shoot the horse 3 days ago but it didn't die, because it gets up and down all the time, but looks very sick.
Again, RSPCA came out, saw said mare sunbaking on the red sand, walked over to her, she slowly opens one eye, grunts and rocks to her feet and wanders off, happy as larry.


I also had the fly mask incident happen to, the neighbour knocked on the front door, and threatened to call the RSPCA if I didn't remove the 'hoodies' on my horse's faces, as they are clearly distressed. I brought out a fly mask, and showed him the mesh on it. Poor man went bright red.


Gee I love my neighbours!

I also live in the middle of a nature preserve and of course, this is not my first doggy visitor. He was friendly and nothing but bones. So much so that his hip has caused a sore on his skin. There is not meat and he is limping on the leg that has said sore on it. I called the pound and told them I had this one here and the neighbor also had one at his house. We will see what happens when they call me tomorrow. I know the girl who runs the dog pound and she will take them both, fatten them up a little and find a coonhound rescue for them. Of course, no collars on either, both starved and neither one is fixed. One male and one female.

He came strolling up and crossed the creek and came walking towards my stallion in the pasture. My stallion was trying to coax him into the fence so I quickly ran the dog off as I was unsure of it's personality and I was walking another horse around outside. My stallion was going to kill that dog, as it would not be the first dog he has killed that wandered into his pasture. When the dog came back I talked him over to me and then quickly slapped a collar and tie out on him so he can not do any damage. I guess the neighbor said his garage is destroyed inside from those two chewing a hole in the door and getting in.

:( Poor souls. I always feel so bad for the dogs that wander onto the property as they are lots of times in a similar condition... its the reason I will never have a non rescue dog.




Kayty - your neighbours sound priceless hahahaha!
