    We had “visitors” in the yard this week. wee runners have access to yard and field. They were herded against electric fence in yard until they knocked it and then into a corner against a gate which was broken.

    Cant figure what was going on, the gate was broken but messed with and closed again.

    Shooters? Coursing? Other types of Doggers?

    It's either someone trying to beat the "Fastest mule hopping" world record, or Heather Mills has paid you a visit. If it's the latter, at least your cows are safe.

    Yea could be a scout or acting soft I should have said the tracts lead to the gate I could see where it had been opened and closed again but no more tracks so unless something or someone passing car etc disturbed him just seemed strange

    does anyone recognise the make of wellingtons by the track ? I know it wouldn’t prove anything at all and you could never accuse anyone wearing the same wellie but could something to look out for again

    Spent ages trying to figure out what was going on in our yard. Few bits moved about but no idea why they herded stock up into a corner against a gate until it busted. Then worked the gate closed with stock still in yard. It’s odd.

    we wondered if they were being penned for stealing but I didn’t think Angus and limousine 250kg weanlings would be a target.

    will get a few wifi cameras now for about the yard. Am angry because my 13yo daughter is around the yard lots on her own doing jobs with her pony when I’m not around

    We often do have esb/opw lads in the fields walking!! Never a issue with gates being left open tho!!

    Claim is they're hunting rabbits with lurchers etc, a lot of the time its a cover to case yards

    A trail cam or two ( usually about €90) would be a good stop-gap untill you got wi-fi cameras installed. They all work in the dark, and take about 10 seconds whenever the beam is triggered.

    Just make sure you get the versions with non-visible Infra Red so that their location is not given away at night time.

    We have one and moved it to the yard straight away.

    Had a visit from a lad in a 10 Rn registered jeep last week. I was in bed for a nap. He beeped the horn. Dogs were barking. I got up in time to see him kick one of the dogs. Bollox
