Stalker Neighbor?

A little back story here... so please excuse any punctuation or grammatical errors. I'm pretty ticked off.
My husband and I have lived in the same place for nearly 10 years. About two years ago, we had some new neighbors move in next door to us that came across pretty friendly at the beginning. The first thing that happened that made my alarms go off is that the husband next door started complaining about my 6 year old's pet rooster crowing. To be friendly and neighborly, we re-homed this rooster and, to this day, we regret the decision. He was an awesome rooster and re-homing him didn't change a dang thing. We started getting our horses shortly after this jack wad moved in. He started complaining right away to the neighborhood POA about us having horses. Obviously, we did our homework before we even got our horses to make sure we could have them. Because the POA wouldn't do anything for him, he started calling animal control on us. I know the animal control guy. He's tired of being called out to our neighborhood because of this guy! The neighbor is trying to say that our horses are malnourished (should I post more photos of my fat girls? LOL!) and that they are standing in their own feces. Ummm...when he was complaining about that part, we had tons of rain coming down. They were covered in mud. Sort of happens when it rains. :roll:
I just received news today that the wife has been documenting when I leave for work and when I return. They have taken pictures of me, my property, and my horses. They know more about my personal habits than my best friend does! In my opinion, they are stalking me. They have commented, "Those neighbors with the chickens and the horses are going to get theirs." That would be me and, imo, that is a threat.
I'm considering calling the police out here to at least document the situation. I have called them before because this guy threatened to kill my peacocks because they were in his yard. Really? You move out to the country and for what? If you prefer the city life, then move back to it! Don't come out here and expect everyone to bend over backwards to make things more city like for your worthless butt! Ugh!

Horrible situation, horrible neighbors. Burn their house down while they are sleeping, or rig the brakes in their car. Only way you're going to stop them from doing what they are doing is to eliminate them.

I wish! I even thought about making a fake sign that announced that a pedophile lived there! But, alas! I must remain in a higher position than they are. :( Keep within the law. So I have reverted to flipping the bird and mooning them whether they are looking or not. LOL! *insert maniacal laughter here*

DOCUMENT!! If you have evidence against them, you can build a case for harassment.

Every call out to your farm, every comment they say to you, every time they call animal control or anything like that, document it.

Then hire a good lawyer and file a suit for harassment. That's what I would do.

In all seriousness, the police would be best to handle this.

Another thing you could do is ask other neighbors to keep an eye out. Have them document anything they see fit as suspicious on said naughty neighbors part.
They don't have to go to the extent that your problem neighbors are going to but just so they have an eye watching.


Other than the rooster, can you think of anything that may have set them off into this bizarre fit? Or are they just wacky?

Document everything and call the police to inform them of the situation right. If there are threats being tossed out there, the authorities need to know.

We had a harasser and our old house, she stole our mail, broke into our house and snooped around, taunted our dogs etc. The police wouldn't do anything without documentation because it's all "he said, she said" stuff.

You need to get the police involved now before something happens and they pull out the victim card. The good guy rarely wins in the end. When happens when your animals get poisoned and then YOU are filed with animal cruelty charges because there is no evidence saying otherwise? It happens.

Make the call. Like I said, take notes, and give the police weekly/bi-weekly updates.

We lived in hell for 10 years because of the psycho next door. Thankfully, we finally moved.

Also, as I'm sure you know and try very hard to do. Try to keep all animals away from them and prevent them from getting on their property. I know animals get out and cause troubles, don't I ever know it, LoL, but taking every precaution possible will be best in the long run. That way they can't call the police on you. And once the authorities are notified, prepare for everything to get worse. They'll feel "outed" and "victimized" and try to turn everything around on you.

Some people are just nuts.

You can file a restraining order against them for threatening to kill your peacocks tell the judge they are harassing your livestock.

They are plain wacky. Husband claims he was in Vietnam and freaks anytime he sees a laser light. Ummm I don't think they even had those back then. And the wife is as dumb as a can of worms. They boggle my mind that people can be that stupid with the things they have said and done in the past. I already have my close neighbors keeping an eye out on them. No one out here likes them. They just plain don't belong here. They remind me of city people coming out to the country with their city dogs and letting them run wild to kill the neighbor's sheep and goats. Know what I mean?

I used to have a crazy neibore like that. Only, we didnt live on horse property at the time. I rode my bike on her drive way once because cars kept zooming by on the rode. Later that night, she came by our house with pictures she had taken of me on her drive way.

The best thing you could do is talk to them yourself and maybe work things out. Or, like you said, call the police and have them work it out.

I hope everything works out!!! Good luck!!
