I'm starting to re-assess just how safe I feel on my homestead. Twice in the last 3 weeks, we have had a stranger (different one each time) stop on our road, look around for awhile, then drive into the driveway to ask myself or DH if we had any goats for sale. Now, anyone who has been on our road 2 or more times will have seen our goats. They ALL have bright purple collars on with bright purple tags shaped like little hearts. Each tag is engraved with their name, and our address & phone number. (2 does, 2 kids) We always are polite, but inform them that our goats are pets and not for sale. These guys just seem alittle creepy; one even acted like he didn't believe us; he said he "was told" that we had goats for sale. THEN, to really spook me he says "well, what about the horses? You sellin' any of those horses?" Again, we said "NO", those are our broodmares, we don't sell them". AGAIN, I got this wierd instinct that he just didn't believe us. As I mull this all over, I'm getting myself pretty nervous about my and my animals safety. I don't like the idea of someone "coveting" my animals! Of course, anyone can SEE them from the road, but to THINK about them? to WONDER about them? To INQUIRE about them..... gives me the heebee-jeebees! Any thoughts/tips/words of wisdom??
