Control your freaking animals (vent)
If anyone read my thread under health you already know a friends horse was injured and ended up with a shoulder fracture fighting with a stallion that got loose and came over the fence into his property. Here's my friends have spend countless hours fixing the fence because the neighbors horses continue to destroy it trying to get to the mare that lives with their horse.

The horse will run the fence line, take the fence down, and raise h3ll all the time.

My thought is...CONTROL YOUR FREAKING STALLION. NOw that he's hurt another horse, possibly bred the mare (and that was a freaking ugly stallion too) and could have hurt someone. The mare's owner has tried slapping him with whip to keep him out of the barn, tried spraying a hose in his face and he won't go away if he happens to get in the pasture. He kicks doors and is generally distructive.

...people that don't control their animals and won't repair the damage their animals do irritate me! That's not being a good neighbor.

(end vent)

What can I say? He's a stallion, they're wild.

Well, not all of them, but most of the ones I've seen and heard about. I know there are heaps of great stallions in the world, but some can be very dangerous.

It's not like the guy doesn't have round pens and other pastures to put him in. He has stalls too and he insists on putting him in the pasture right next to the mare and our friends horse separated by a t-post fence. RIDICULOUS!!!

I think Kansas has laws about stallion containment. Fences have to be so high etc. If they don't they should. Everyone I know who keeps stallions keep them in a seperate inner corral with 6' fences.

I told my friends to call animal control if he comes over again. The animal control people will get sick of the calls I'd guess and may do something about it.

I'm sorry, but that is just not an excuse! That attitude is WHY there are so many stupid stallion owners out there! (not calling you stupid)

I have 2 stallions on my property and in the last 7 years (since I've had stallions) they have NEVER gotten out nor caused any damage. And yes, they are pastured next to other mares. (not ours) It is possible to do if you just try a little.

In Texas, it is legal to kill ANY animal who is on your property that makes you fear for your life.

If he was MY neighbor, I would be informing him that if his stallion comes on my property again, I would fear for my life and his guy would be dog food! (Not that I would really do it but make him think that. Although I just might do it if he really was dangerous)

I would also have my mare to the vet for the abortion shot and send him the bill for that and any other damages. If he didn't pay in a reasonable length of time I would take him to small claims court. I would put it in writing along with the bill.

that is riduculous i know exactly what you mean only my issue is with neighbors attack dogs not stallions, but anyway
you're right, the nieghbor should keep his stallion contained, he could cause other serious damage on top of what he has already done, i would be on a tear and that man would be very afraid...very...also im pretty sure it is legal everywhere if another persons animal comes onto your property causeing damage you have the right to shoot the animal, (i should know :evil: )
well good luck with the evil fence destroying stallion lol

Perhaps the threat or intent of a LAWSUIT for negligence may motivate the stallion owner to do something. May I suggest castration since you mentioned he's ugly.
