Colorado does not consider a loose horse or two "livestock". They are
considered a nuisance animal and animal control will pick the animal up.
You can call your state vet (this person is higher in rank than animal
control officers or deputies or brand inspectors) and get the word from him
on what you can do about this animal. I found this useful in dealing with
my nieghbor's horses. The neighbor claimed I had to fence them out, but the
authorities had something else to say. Next time their horses are loose on
my land, I will call animal control after the verbal dressing down the
neighbor gave me. :-) However, she did finally put up a post and fix the
place her horses kept pushing the fence down.
Good luck dealing with this. Bad neighbors with loose animals (I consider
them abused animals) are really the pits.
