Horse sh*t.

Am I right in thinking that dog owners have to pick up their dog's sh*t by law, but horse riders can leave their horses sh*t wherever they damn well please?

Thanks in advance

    I've just cycled back from somewhere, part of my journey took me accross a beautiful walkway which includes a bridge which goes over a picturesque river.

    I had to avoid, from one end of this beautiful little bridge, to the other, smack bang in the middle, an estimated 12 lbs worth of horse sh*t.

    It's absolutely disgusting for everyone (loads of dog walkers and such like).

    Surely if dog owners have to take responsibility for their dog sh*t, horse owners should also? Is that not the case?

    One time there was this guy with them who's job it was to pick up it's sh1t.He just bent down and scooped it into a carrier bag with his bare hands!!.

    If i see a horse on the road i do make an effort to slow down to a crawl as that's the decent thing to do, but if they don't acknowledge with so much as a wave I push the revs upto about 5 and half grand and dump the clutch, manners don't cost anything

    You're actually trying to cause potentially fatal accidents, because you don't like horses?

    That is rather odd

    I had this conversation with a work mate who is kept horses most of his life,I said it's no different to dog sh!t, their owners have to clear it up so should horse owners, his reasoning was "they are vegetarian, so it's ok" well, his brother in-law is vegetarian so I said "it's ok for dave to sh!t in the street too then"

    That gets pretty annoying doesn't it? Elephants while cute at a distance actually stink quite bad, and have an annoying tendency to dribble in your beer.

    I'm really getting old and miserable...

    Most of the horse riders around here are pretty friendly and nearly always acknowledge driver & say hi to walkers /dog walkers etc. I haven't really got anything against them, - I just couldn't believe the pinpoint accuracy of this horse sh*t - seemingly laid in such a prime location to inflict maximum damage. And the sheer quantity too.


    LOL - NDT - "it's okay officer, i'm a vegetarian".

    Horse crap is neither as smelly or as riddled with disease as dog crap

    However I do agree that riding horses on roads is rubbish, both because of the dirt issue and because it is dangerous. Off the road is by far the best option, the only problem being that most landowners won't allow it, even if they have fields which are just lying fallow

    I used to ride horses myself, I worked as a stablehand when I was young in fact, and riding on roads is both boring and annoying. What you want is fields you can charge around in and so on. Otherwise what's the point?

    I watched a tv program about people dying in the usa from ecoli, forensic detectives I think it was,
    anyway quite a few people, young and old had died from a particular strain of ecoli,
    the only link between them all was a certain brand of apple juice, this particular brand of juice was not pasturised as the manufacturers said it altered the taste and they wanted it to taste pure as nature intended,
    they only used a certain orchard for the apples and the pickers were under strict orders never to use windfall apples, but they were being paid by the weight, so they used windfalls, turns out there were a lot of deer in the orchard they tested the deer sh!t and it contained the exact same strain of ecoli, so even manure from animals such as horse and deer can have devastating consequences.

    No tax or insurance? Take the walking dog food off the road.

    I love the smell of horse sh it, so I don't mind.

    I also used to work with horses, never went on the road though, pointless IMO.

    There's nothing wrong with horse dung ask any person who's got a garden full of roses.

    when i was a kid, i was out walking the dog with my mum and sister. my sister who was about 6 at the time, came across what she thought was a mole hill and kicked it. my mum then asked her why she kicked horse poo. my sis burst out in tears and started wiping her dirty boots on my mum. (she was and still is a brat)

    It doesnt bother me. Horse **** is often used as fertiliser for land anyway, people sell bags of the stuff! Dog **** on the other hand, youre less likely to see it and it has no uses at all.

    I guess horse turd is part digested plant matter, not hugely offensive. Dog turd is digested meat products, which results in a whole lot more nastiness.

    Though horses should be fed to the French.
