TOP 10 Reasons Why Dog Owners Pickup After Their Dogs but Horse Owners Do Not

10. While horse piles are conspicuous and easily avoidable, canine excrement is imbued with stealth properties, including a special magnetic attraction to the soles of shoes and bare feet.

9. Doggies are forever running ahead of their owners, making their business as plain as day. Horse owners, however, riding atop, are facing the wrong direction and are invariably unaware of the performance orchestrated behind them.

8. Volumes have been written on the beneficial uses of Horse Manure. They boast of a rich heritage of compost, of rose and vegetable gardens - a nuanced milieu of the "organic," elevating its stature to celestial heights. However, when it comes to dog poo, it's nothing but shite.

7. Should you inadvertently get in the way of your dog doing its business, neither its poo or pee will do harm. Misstep with your horse and you'd wish you brought a raincoat and umbrella.

2. When's the last time you've seen either your local grocery store or park offer Horsie Bags?

1. And the Number One reason why dog owners pickup after the dogs but horse owners do not:  

Simply drive along any county road and you'll see yard signs declaring "Horse Manure For Sale!" I don't recall anyone ever trying to sell me Dog Poo, that is until the launch of Obamacare.
