Eventually the SPCA and the police officers are going to get annoyed by the person who's calling you in. Because they now know that you obviously aren't cruel to your horses.

I agree.

And try to see the good side of this, which I realize is hard because it is annoying, the animal control people in your area actually seem to know something about horses and do investigate calls.
Just think about all the places where people call and the animal control people do not know squat about horses or do not do anything at all.

You are giving yourself a good name with the SPCA people. Be sure to thank them for visiting when they come.

You not being annoyed will be the best way to get even with the neighbor.

the thing is i have a good idea of who the neighbor is, but i cant be 100% sure since the SPCA cannot tell me who is calling.

we have definately made good with the SPCA. the last officer that was out really loved the horses. he said he will try to make a visit when the foal is born

it just irks me that someone would be so low. as if i dont have enough things to worry about in my life already. dont these people have their own problems? lol, oh wait they do... my horses!!

that would be ok... if that existed. lol. our town used to be small, just a few farmers in it. but then people started dying and property was bought and instead of a nice farm (for example this is what we have across the street now!!) there are six... SIX!!!!- houses. its happening all over here. and now no one knows each other. i hate how things change. we used to have a nice gravel road, everyone drove slow, and there were horses being ridden up and down it. now its pavement, young kids fly down the road in their junky new cars, and there are only a few horses left. i miss the old days....

That's really stupid. Try to become friendly with the ASPCA officers.

im sorry this has happened to you, its happened to me too. my neighbor expects me to treat my horses like royalty. by doing things like feeding them off pallets and following them around with pitchforks and picking up poop every time they go poop. AC has been called on me 3x in the past year. and i got an anonimis letter on how to take care of horses properly. if you ever need to talk, im here and know what you are going through.

This is really sad, what if you were to take in a rescue horse that's a little underweight. Your neighbors would go balistic then. Put up no trespass signs on there side of your property and have a lawyer on stand by for a defermation of character and harrasment charge.

Horses are the guarding angels of the soul.

Yeah i agree. Where i used to live in the UK there were so many nice villages where everyone would know everyone and hang out. Say hi whilst walking down the road. And now there is hardly any fields around, no one really knows who they live next too and no one stops to say hi. Its a shame things have the change.
