    I guess it's time to get rid of the horse and put a pack of pit bulls in the back yard - then the Granby's might have something to worry about! (And they would be more than happy with "just a horse" after that.

    Turns out the horse had let itself into the house and was peeing in the entryway.
    Oh my, I can just picture that. If he was anything like my boys, he'd have flooded the place

    This reminds me a bit of a newspaper article I read about a year or so ago. Lady had a small acreage that she kept her horse on. No house or anything, just an undeveloped lot if I remember right. A subdivision was built against one side of her property and the new neighbours started making various complaints about the horse and wanted it gone, even though the zoning allowed for horses and they must have seen the horse before they bought their homes.
    Anyhow the newspaper article was about the pigs she'd moved in after she moved the horse out. Lots of pigs. With smelly sheds/pens built beside the neighbours fence line with automatic feeders that run day and night and are apparently loud. Apparently the lot was zoned for pigs too
    Maybe these folks need pigs.

    I wish I had the link

    I really, really, really hate whiny, nosy neighbors. :/

    "This is a hazard to my neighbors, to my children. I'm trying to raise my family here and I can't."
    That was my favorite quote, by far. Rofl. Gotta wonder what those poor people out in the country do, surrounded by varmits keeping them from raising their families?!
