Farmers are closing England down to the Public, Most are rude and sarcastic, I now have to walk my dogs at night with a lamp, because i live on a main road that's so dangerous to use in the day time.

i use to pop over the road where i live as there is a empty filed and only corn fields surrounding it. i also always have my 2 dogs on a lead at all times, So im not any trouble to anyone or anything, But the local farmer gets his knickers in a twist if he ever sees anyone on his land, So i now lamp it at night so i can see where i am going, I always stick to the footpaths but i have to do it at night when there is no cars due to the busy road in the daytime.
So now the rude sarcastic farmer will not know if im a poacher or a dog walker, I will very my time of walks from 10pm to 4am. I've never hated farmers as much as i do now.

Come on a farming forum and whinge about farmers??.......this is gonna go down well.

I'm guessing YOU are getting YOUR knickers in a knot. Farmer is no doubt happy for you to keep to the footpaths, but YOU think it's ok to walk across HIS property.

Where do you live - cos I got a dog that needs a walk and maybe I can walk it round YOUR garden and sh!t all over YOUR property

Is there any chance you could go find a quite stretch of road or a park in your vicinity where it would be pleasurable for you to walk your dogs?

Sounds like you are now stressed out every time you go for a walk with your dogs and thats not the way it should be.

I'll bet mister farmer is sick of the sight of dog walkers with dogs off the lead.

Surely it will be easier find a nice walk locally and use that during the day.

I’m perfectly happy to let dog walkers walk on footpaths here.even keep them cut as I use them too.ive no problem with dogs of leads either unless they are chasing hares and going through wild bird seed covers.thats normally spaniels.my only gripe is the amount of sh!t left and not picked up.i suppose no one sees a dog having a dump so they leave it.some of those who pick it up in bags throw it in the hedge.if people want to have a run on a field just ask.what really annoys me are those who do what ever they want with no regards to the country code.you madam are very wellcome here anytime.bloody horse riders are a million times worse
