    Sounds to me like it wasn't the hunters land in that story but rather the sheriff. Who I am assuming the rider had permission to ride on the land seeing as she called him to tell him about the hunters. Or did I read that totally wrong?

    1) I strongly suspect that Trakehner is a 'he'.
    2) Trakehner was riding with permission on land that belonged to the sheriff, to whom he reported the encounter.

    No doubt the hunters Trakehner had to deal with were a little PO'd with him. Their looong wait for any game to show up was going to take a lot longer, if ever, with he and his horse pushing it off.

    And instead of a spiked collar for your TB, what about one of those face thingy's the Ringwraith's horses wore?? That would up the intimidation factor.

    I had permission to ride on the Sheriff's land (he was my Grandfather).

    Riders (and hikers) have permission to ride/hike on this government land OUTSIDE of the facility...no hunting allowed though on the land.

    I didn't trespass on any of the land.

    Amazing attitude.

    How much you wanna bet he didn't report the fact he'd slashed their tires?

    Just havin' some fun, Trak. I'd have been tempted to do the same!

    Actually, I had a valve stem puller...this removes the valve in the filler stem which holds the air in...no slashing or punctures...just major hassle....and actually, one of my Grandfather's deputy's taught me this trick and gave me the puller. He said, "sometimes hassle is a better lesson than a ticket".
