Most of YOU probably don't need to learn this, but I am going to mention it here as a precaution to everyone. I am SOOO glad this happened...now I know the measure of the man. I was talking to the neighbor yesterday about his calf getting out. I believe it's easier to keep cows inside fences if they are fed. We talked about his feeding practices. Evidently, he has been going to the neighbor on my OTHER side and stealing his field corn that hasn't been harvested. SO, we are between him and the corn field. He also admitted/bragged about stealing garden produce from the fields behind us (row crop farmer). His justification is that farmers waste a lot anyone so he might as well take it..... I think I need to find a way to lock the fence around my garden. If he will do this in GOOD times...what will he do in bad times? I hear about it all the time....but to hear it from the horses' mouth was sickening. I do not want to remain on good terms with this man. But I do not want to be on his bad side either. What would you do?
