Well Ron Marti, I think you found a place where you can dispose of the horse apples. You see, Veleda doesn't mind if it is by her house.

"they leave behind much more natural pollution than..." Please don't call it pollution when it's a gift of nature. These herbivores leave the most non-offending excrement of all and it's really good for the soil. Maybe a reality check should be done on what is safe and what is deadly.

City streets are no place for high nutrient horse manure. It runs off into the storm sewers and then the river, ever heard of e-coli bacteria? Not to mention the river is too fertile already. Plus I like to think we are civilized enough at this point that we don't have to deal with this kind of $%^&*

I agree with Veleda, we have better things to worry about than horse turds on a street! Many people enjoy the animals coming to town, for some they don't get to see horses up close often, or for the youngsters it's their first time. Property damage would be one thing, but horse apples on a public street is another. It's not very practical to strap a bucket and shovel on the saddle. I think more people in town need to start being conscious about the fertilizers they are using on their lawns and gardens that are full of minerals that pollute the river through waste water. These products are applied in pounds and pounds compared to one pile of turds. So what's really the problem here?
