Yesterday I was standing outside, there was a lull in the rain (best 2" I've ever had by the bye) and I noticed people standing in the field behind us, which is currently for sale. I had thought that was why they were there, suddenly my sheep beeline it toward the back fence then disappear. Husband went out to see what was going on. As soon as they saw Husband, the four of them ran. We know that one of them is a neighbor that we caught stealing my chickens.
They had lifted the bottom part of my fence and lured my sheep into the abandoned property. If I catch them again back there, I will be calling the Sheriff. I am tired of neighbors coming out here, then decided that I don't deserve to have more than them. Oh and yes, It has been said to other neighbors about us. We have too much, and we should share it. They can bite me and my shotgun.
Husband just came in to inform me that the hot fencing was jacked with in the back field.
I am done playing nice guy. I work hard for what I have and no one will come and take it from me because they feel they deserve it without the work involved. These are also the neighbors that had their horse taken away for starving it. And are cousins of the ones that called the Sheriff on us the other day and are cousins with the woman that threaten to report me for starving my cows.
Grrrr. . .
We are in the process of looking for another homestead.
And we did get our sheep back.
