Is it the responsibility of the owner of the horse to fence their animal in, or the responsibility of the neighbors to fence the horse out? I have been debating this issue with my father in law who refuses to hold his little sister responsible for her STALLION who is always out, on our property, eating my hay, flowers, and destroying my fences. Her property is next door and she has a 3 wire barbed wire fence that is very loose. She operates a small animal rescue on her property and refuses to take responsibility for her horses. This 3 yr old colt walks through her fence as though it didn't exist. He used to get into my feed barrel, but I moved it inside my pasture to end that problem because he would climb over or though anyone who opened it. Now he gets out on our Private road and eats my hay. One of my two remaining bales is so bad, it wont be moveable. It will fall apart and Curtis just says I have no right to complain. She owns part of the road(an I know she doesn't.) He tells me it our responsibility to fence this horse out of our property and she has a right to let him run loose. I dont agree and I am so frustrated. What do you think?
