Will do. :)

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

I haven't had many problems with strangers and our horses, but uneducated relatives, yes. Most of my horses were given far too many treats in their former homes, and I've tried to break them of being mouthy, and I never give my horses treats anyway. I had family members come over and be petting Takala, and they'd let her take their entire hand in her mouth! If I told them not to let her do that, they just replied "no, it's okay". I've had to tune up others because they'd let Tenakee lip their hand for about an hour looking for treats because it "felt cool".

People don't understand that I don't give my horses treats not because I'm worried about them getting fat, but because I don't want them to maul unsuspecting, under-educated victims. Tenakee got upwards of 15 treats the day she had her foal, and I was not impressed. Not that many people need to be visiting a day old foal anyway. I go out of my way to destroy treats, yet new ones are constantly bought. If you train a horse right, you don't need treats to win them over. Food doesn't merit you any respect.

I am a little protective of my horses, and definitely don't have interest in dumb people who won't listen! My blood is boiling just thinking about it. If I were you, I'd quit my job, by a lawn chair and a gun and sit in my horse's pasture to ward off any naysayers. But then again I am sick and waiting for the sleeping medicine to kick in, so I may be going a bit overboard.

Get a trail camera and just bring it in and view the pictures. It doesn't require internet, just a HD or and HDSC card like a normal camera would. It is triggered by action. Hunters use them for seeing what animals travel a certain trail or come to the bait pile.

You can find fairly cheap ones too.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Could you get the police involved? It is your property and your horses, right? Or would they really not be able to do anything?

Haha BD I can understand where you're coming from. The people tonight irritated me the most because they didn't even say anything to me. >8( While sitting with Henny all day would be awesome, he's a giant money pit and I gotta feed dat babeh. ;)

ETA: The game cam sounds awesome, GG. I will definitely be looking into that. Should just be able to buy on at Academy or something?

Unfortunately, it's not my property. I board at a stable down the road from my house. If this were my property, I WOULD be sitting out there with a gun.

A farm I used to work at had a simular problem but it was the same person every time so they just talked to the person and he stopped.

If you get a camera you should get one of those signs that say 'Smile you're on camera!'. It would scare me if I was doing something I sould not be. :)
