Solution for the Shooting Neighbor (photos)
« on: July 02, 2008, 09:11:48 am »
We are putting up a new mesh fence around out home. We have 20 acres completely fenced but because of the angry neighbor have to tighten the play area the dogs and children.

This is the drawing I made to mark off the area for the new fence:

I also have a tripod set up on my front parch to video tape any shots fired into my property (as a deterent). Here are photos of the new fence and front gates.


We choose mesh becasue we will be getting goats soon.

Hard to believe anyone would risk hurting these cuties:

Horrible that you have to take such precautions, but the fence looks great, and still looks like there is PLENTY of room for the skin kids and fur kids.

Yes, its about a $2000 shame (no vacation this year). Skin kids and fur kids LOL I hadn't heard that one. My Precious is my baby alright. My 90 lb lap baby.

Its a shame you have such a S*** neighbor! However you can look at it as your fur and skin babies are much safer fenced in then not.

It's really too bad that you had to go to this level on your own property but.... So how has it been lately with the barking that is? Any new threats? I'm sure the price is worth it though for protection of kids and just some peace of mind. Really hope this is the end of your problems with him. :)
