Well where to start...this is not one of those posts with photo's or much good to say.. cause, I am freaked out a bit.
I helped a friend move furniture and place it in her new home, most of the day. Then, off to the stable for a ride and make grain packets up for the next 2 weeks...simple right...
well, my PBO left hurriedly to Bible study and I was alone in the stable with the classical music playing..all normal.
I for some reason, decided to groom while my mare ate some hay in her stall, and tack up there too.
Then, I start to groom my mare, and some big bald guy walks into the barn, all authority like...ooou...I say, "HELLO, can I help you?" he proceeds yo tell me how "PISSED OFF "he is that I spoke to his 17 year old son about the Private Property trails at the end of the road".... (Okay...am thinking-You must live in the rented home, next door, that my PBO owns(!).
I said, to him calmly" G ( my PBO and THEIR PROPERTY MANAGER/OWNER) was with me, and as I spoke to them about reading the sign about motorized vehicles being prohibited on the Private Property. I told him," his landlord spoke up suddenly and said outloud, "I already spoke to them".
I then apologized that she did not tell me, that she had already spoken to them, or I would NOT have".
So those little 17 yr old kids told him I threatened them...and he believes them! Ha. He also has the " My good boys always tell the truth syndrome"...he told me, they said, " that they NEVER ride down the street that way (left towards the Private Property lands)."
Oh, I guess those photo's I took were backwards somehow, and I am the Liar. Whatever!
Any who...I started to shake and tremble..he really freaked me out, by leaning into my stall...which NOW, I think was divine intervention for my safety and comfort -that I was behind a stall wall..as I believe he would have stood wayyy too close to me- to get his Pissed off Point across!
He then proceeded to tell me to not walk in " HIS yard"..I said, You please talk to your Property owner about that", he said no- I want to tell you to stay off!
Hate to tell ya dude...it's a horse property and sometimes we fence the lower yard off for grazing . And all summer there will be trailers and horses all over, as the Property owner reserves the right to use her property by her fences and near your(her) yard.
I simply txt'd my PBO to tell her his comments to me, and about the no horse rule he has for her property, and Requested her to inform him Not to approach me again without her present.
Men like that scare me! I felt very cornered and will be carrying mace on my belt, in the barn, from now on...I usually carry it for animal predators on the trail- not human ones, in the barn!
Praying all the way home and then,
- after coming home and using blogs as A diversion...I am calmed down now...tomorrow is another day.The war is won already!
