We moved out here to the country nine months ago. for many reasons,-It had always been a dream of mine to have a hobby farm. We wanted for our kids to grow up in a country atmosphere-raising animals, knowing where their food comes from, develop strong family bonds, and to develop a good work ethic in our kids, among other reasons. I have made one really good friend here, and several good aquaintances. Alot of our neighbours have stopped by to introduce themselves, so I've met alot of good people who have offered "if you ever need anything-just stop by" There are two neighbours--near neighbours, who never came over, never waved etc., and our view was--they just like to keep to themselves, that;s fine. but I recently was just informed that these two neighbours apparently don't like us. I was told that the one wants to kill my dog--for whatever reason -i don''t know b/c my dogs have only got out three times, and that was when we first moved here. the other one apparently has issues with everything we do, with how we keep our horses,chickens, etc. to how my kids spend their free time out here in the country. Apparently she sees it fit to badmouth us all over town, but has never come to us with any concerns etc. i know I should probably let this roll off my shoulders, but it hurts. And I am offended. We keep good care of our animals, my kids like to explore the ditches and a bush lot that was former railway land (still owned by CN rail). My son hunts rabbits on our property. We are law abiding, I can't see how we could do anything that could make other people so hateful. My girlfriend says they are probably jealous, b/c we have a nice house, land and we just put up horse fence around our whole property, (so therefore my gf thinks 'they' think we are loaded, and on top of that i don't work) If this is the case, and I can't think of why else ppl would feel the need to badmouth us, i am completey offended. We have worked "hard" for everythng that we have, and have never had anything given to us. i am very upset. i love living out here in the country, but now i know that my two nearest neighbours don't like us, and we have to live next to them. What should I do?
