Well we are smack dab in the middle of summer. Most of us have already been out riding a time or two (sadly the fires are slowing a lot of us down). I even got a chance to go riding with my wife a few days ago. For those of you that know us, you know what a huge deal that was knowing our busy schedules and still ending up with a Saturday off together and a sunny Saturday at that. So, we were at the trail head saddling up when this single gal rode up to the trailer next to ours. I exchanged greetings and asked how the trail was, etc. You know the normal old trail head chit chat then she did the one thing I truly hate….She got in her trailer and shoveled all the manure out onto the ground, I mean scraped it clean. This just pisses me off! This is the one thing that bugs me even more than bringing a herd of unleashed poorly trained dogs on the trail. At least I can shoot the dogs. I said what are you doing? She said cleaning out my trailer. She wasn’t even the least bit concerned about this pile of crap left behind. She said it’s all natural it will break down and be gone before anyone sees it. I told her I sure can see it, and it looks horrible. You understand she says it’s part of horse ownership. No, I don’t understand, and I own way more horses and mules than most. I have never understood cleaning out your trailer at the trail head. It gives all horse owners a bad name. And another thing I sleep on the ground next to my trailer all summer long, and I don’t want to sleep in your horses $***! Do us all a favor, clean that trailer out at home, keep the trail head clean before there are even more restrictions put on us.
