Sorry if this is completely off topic here, but I own a Friesian stud and he is not allowed near any of our property fence lines so that there isn't any problems with our neighbors.
My problem is we recently got new neighbors who don't seem to know a thing about horses. They have put on about a half acre a filly that looks to be maybe 2, a pony gelding, a yearling colt that I'm thinking is not gelded, a stud and a mini stud! They have them all running together and needless to say its a circus over there. Ok, with that information here is my problem. We own 3 mares that are allowed to graze our pasture during the day. One is bred and due any day, the other was just covered last week and the third is just starting to cycle. So, the studs next door are trying to get to my mares. My question is does anyone know what the law is in Colorado about keeping a stud away from your property fence line? I thought they had to be 2 fence line's away from property line. I would like to be armed with the law before I approach the new neighbors.
Thanks for letting me vent and for any and all advice!
I believe - but you should check this, and it may vary depending upon what part of Colorado you live in - that Colorado is a "free range State". I know the part where I lived was (Gunnison). That means that it is the responsibility of the person that does not want animals on their property to fence it adequately to keep the animals out. In other words, you are responsible for for the fencing to keep the neighbour's horses away from you.
Thanks Jos. I'm in the Southeastern part but I think it is free range here too, I just didn't know if there different laws pertaining to stallions.
Thanks so much! Pam
