A woman and her husband lived together with their 14-year-old daughter on the outskirts of a city. The family had started their own equine center together, but despite being a harmless business, it would soon attract negative attention.
The Equine Center
Nestled away from the neighborhood’s cluster of houses, their home shared a domain with their 18-horse private equine center. It was a serene place, housing not only horses but also her daughter’s beloved steeds. The house, yards, fields, and arena coexisted within a fenced territory.
The Lonesome Guardian
As her husband commuted to the city for work and her daughter attended school there, the woman often found herself alone, shouldering the responsibility of managing the equine haven. They employed a team to care for the horses, instructors for riding lessons, and staff living in a residential area atop the stables.
A Private Retreat
The equine center strictly catered to the needs of the horse owners who stabled their steeds there. This meant that the property wasn’t just a riding school, but an exclusive retreat for private horse owners, and therefore security was essential.
The Canine Guardians
Ensuring the security of their property and horses, the family had four guard dogs – Caucasian and Middle Asian Shepherds. These loyal sentinels roamed freely on the premises during the night or when the place wasn’t bustling with owners and staff. The dogs, while formidable, had formed a friendly bond with the kids, including the owner’s daughter and her friends.
The Persistent Neighbor’s Kids
Trouble began when the children of a neighbor harbored an unwavering curiosity about the horses. Despite multiple warnings, these youngsters persisted in attempting to climb over the fence to catch a glimpse of the elegant creatures.
One fateful Friday evening, their determination bore fruit as they managed to breach the property. “They managed to get through, but our dogs cornered them and didn’t let them move”, the woman explained.
A Swift Intervention
The woman was alerted to the commotion, but not immediately: “I only found out after hearing police coming to the property”, she continued. “Apparently they were cornered for a while and since the dogs won’t let them out, their mother had to call the police. I took the dogs away so the kids could go and the police officer said I did nothing wrong since guard dogs are allowed.”
A Disgruntled Mother
However, the story didn’t end there. The mother of the wayward children, perhaps sensing an opportunity, played the trauma card, asserting that her children were traumatized by the experience. She contended that the dogs needed to be dealt with and attempted to shift the blame onto the woman.
The Woman Laughed
However, the woman could not take her neighbor’s comments seriously. In response, she couldn’t help but laugh, reminding her of the repeated warnings given to her children.
A Misguided Accusation Spreads
Undeterred by the police officer’s endorsement of the woman’s actions, the neighbor began to spread rumors in the community. These rumors eventually found their way into the local newspaper, casting the woman as the antagonist in the tale, an unjust portrayal given the circumstances.
Venting Her Frustrations
The woman knew she had acted fairly, and had tried to warn her neighbor and their children about trespassing. Still, she was frustrated with the nasty rumors, so she headed online to vent her anger. “You are allowed to have guard dogs that protect your property, as the police have said”, someone responded. “Better still, your dogs didn’t harm the children, only cornered them.”
Report the Mother
Many people believed that enough was enough, and that action had to be taken against the irresponsible mother. One such example included a commenter who wrote their suggestion: “I’d press charges against the kids/mother and report them to social services – if she can’t make sure the kids don’t trespass, can she handle the kids at all? She wants to fight, have a fight.”
Well Trained Dogs
Overall, everyone praised the woman for standing up for herself, and the way she trained her dogs. “The neighbors are lucky your dogs are so well trained that they only cornered the intruders and didn’t shred them”, one person stated.
