This is going to be long. Well we actually don't have any neighbors touching our land. We are surrounded by park on two sides, and then have crop fields on the other two. But just little ways down the street we have neighbors. We used to have lovely neighbors, but about 2 years ago they moved away. Their house sold about a year ago and a new family moved in. They are extremely nice, they said they were moving into the country cause they always wanted to get some animals. That was cool, we were excited to have others around that were interested in goats and chickens like us. It's a mom, dad, and their two grown boys. Well... Then it started. We noticed at first that they had a pair of mini pinchers and a pair of poms which we quickly found out that they bred and sold. Well whatever people can breed dogs if they want. Then the chickens started coming in. And more chickens, and then goats, and more goats, then more dogs, ducks, geese, turkeys, and cats. We have a hobby farm with quite a few animals so it didn't bother us. But we were a little worried since they knew nothing about animals and they sure got into a lot of different kinds so quickly. A year later, they now have probably over 100 goats, 200 or 300 chickens, dozens of ducks and geese. They also have bought pairs of Aussie's and Prynese. This is all on 5 acres of land, which 3 of is a useless pond. So 2 acres... They have no clue what they are doing, or how to care for anything well. They lose animals all the time and then just get more We found out they came into a large inheritance. About a month ago they bought a herd of Dexter cows. 5 of them. They bought 6 but on the way home one escaped and fell onto the interstate and the vet had to shoot it. They tell us they are getting a herd of alpacas in the next month or so. When is it going to end!? Today we got a frantic call. The family is in Iowa buying two more pry puppies. One of their goats had triplets last night and the mama wont feed them. He doesn't know what to do. So I got up early this morning milked a cranky goat and fed little babies. Well we hadn't been there in a few months and me and my mothers eyes just about bugged out when we got there. They have more than a dozen pens everywhere! They are like those chainlink dog pens, all over the place. With 6 goats here, 50 chickens here, 4 more goats, 3 dogs. It's just a mess. Nothing is done nicely though. It looks like hillbilly farm. It's on a pretty major highway just like 50 or 100 feet off the road. Everyone can see the mess. They have already had the cops called cause their grass was like 2 feet high. It's looks awful. But I really don't mind the mess so much. What I worry about is the animals. They have no clue what they are doing. They are giving them food and water but they just don't know. They are giving their goats corn which causes urinary problems, which is probably why a couple of their bucks died. They have metal panels leaning against the barn which a goat knocked over 3 times while we were there and got squished. If it was any smaller of a goat it would have killed it. They don't know anything about shots, or milking. They don't even know what kind of chickens and goats they have. They are just mass breeding them and selling them to other people. I tried to mention little things like proper care, but I just don't what to do about it. The animals aren't skinny. But they aren't getting the care they need either. But I can't call animal control just on stupidity, they have to be neglected which they aren't. It's just crazyness. Oh and back to the goats today. The son informs us he is leaving today at 2 and won't be back till tomorrow night. They figured the animals would be okay.... So guess what I'm doing tonight. Taking his new triplets home and milking my goats and bottle feeding his babies over night. Cause I can't just let them die. This is what I feel like doing right now. Anyone else have neighbors like this? Anyone have ideas on what I can do? I can't even describe it. It's insane over there. I really wish I could get some pictures.... Maybe I'll bring my phone with me next time, and pretend to be texting.
