    Default Horses/Dogs Defaecating in Public Places

    Why is it that all dog owners are expected to clean up any faeces our dogs do when out and out on public land, footpaths etc - yet, the amount of horses I've seen can do it anywhere, anytime.

    Seriously, why don't horse owners have to clean up behind their animal if they are riding or walking their horse in a public place???

    .........because if you step in a horse sh!t you are just plain stupid due to its size...a dog sh!t is much more subtle!

    Seriously...good question...it is still a sh!t!

    Yeh & it is massive, definitley not something I like to look at!!
    Although getting of a horse eveytime it poos would be a bit time consuming, also they just poo while walking so I guess the owners don't even realise a lot of the time.

    LOL@Cleas. Good one!

    No, not about stepping in it, it's about the fairness of it. Hell, when you think about it, as it IS so much more in quantity, all the more reason they should pick it up IMO.
    Maybe they think that ppl are going to run out of their yards and pick it up for composting purposes in their gardens or something?

    Difficult to ride you horse and drag a wheelbarrow after you with a shovel in it to pick up horse sh!t!

    Well, there's not a lot of difference between from a small pony and an adult Newfie, so you think I'll get away with it in time to come? PMSL.

    I just went down the shop, see, and two girls, approx 16-18 at a guess, were walking their pony down the street. Just standing there watching it **** on the footpath. Dopey sheilas actually. But I see a lot of horse **** at the beach we go to. You always see dog owners cleaning up at this beach, but the friggin horses can crap anywhere. Throw a ball for your dog and it lands in a crap. Surely there is a law that they must clean it up? Anybody know?

    By the looks of it there is no law as "horses do not eat meat so therefore their poo is not as dangerous or as much a health hazard as dogs"
    Don't agree with it but that is what the site said when I googled it.

    If you don't know your horse is taking a crap when you're riding you aren't paying enough attention Particularly if it's on pavement!

    It would be a huge pain in the backside having to dismount, tether or hold the horse, pick up the poop but what would you do with it? Ride along with the poop in a bag at your side

    Every time I've been riding around streets I've actually had people approach me and ask where/when the last time the horse pooped was so they can collect the manure, it makes me laugh!
