We spent $1,000 on fencing. Keeping our dogs in, as well as the livestock. We made sure that they couldn't get out and cause any trouble.
We have neighbors with a fenced in yard. They do not put their dogs in it. Instead the dogs run free, chasing their horses out of their rope fencing. A neighbor was lucky one day, I got their 5 year old child out of the way as 3 horses came thundering down the road, pursued by those dogs.
These dogs have harassed Good neighbors goats. Good Neighbor and the neighbor across the way has talked to these neighbors, told them to do something about the dogs. The dogs have been reported to the county. The chase walkers and joggers, have attacked my horse as we rode passed. The county warned them and moved on.
These are untrained cattle dogs. They tend to bite livestock because they have no idea what to do. They have dug up our drive way as we slept, so they can get under the gate. My dogs are worthless if they won't stop them.
One was attacking my goats this morning.
We warned them.
I am more than livid.
