They're filming a responsible drinking commercial and they chose Boston?

I'm sorry, is that a 30 yard dumpster full of hay?

That is soiled bedding, manure and waste hay. From what, ten horses? For one day. Think what Boston must have smelled like when there were thousands of horses in the city. And I LOVE horses AND their smell.

circa 1890:

Horse shit all over Washington and Tremont streets. Stench unbearable. Please clean or pass diaper law for horses.

Horses braying early AM. Think ice delivery men are getting them drunk on ale. Please rectify.

Youths on galloping horses,Columbus Ave. This horse racing goes on all summer long. Constables on beat ignore.

Horse urinating in plain view on Charles St. by Mt. Vernon. Disgusting, un-hygienic. Many women and children in area!

Publicly traded company urges people to buy their products in moderation.

The funny thing is these are just advertisements every bit as much as the "wazzzzup" ones are. /cynical

that's a funny picture, you usually have to go inside the building to find someone with a head up their ass.

First - that dumpster is full of manure gold! (Better than hay if you are a gardener or eat organic produce)

Second - I can almost smell the scent of clean horse. I used to barnsit for Shires (larger than Clydes, even), and when I rattled the gran scoop, they would come barreling in. Since their tender hooves are the size of very large dinner plates, I worked FAST to get their suppers in their bins before they arrived.

I also used to exercise a Clyde that was an equine therapy horse, and she was the sweetest old gal. It was like riding in a slow floaty boat.

I've seen one of the Bud Clydes teams up close and personal, and their care, livery and presentation is remarkable.

Miss 'em and glad they are visiting.

If you like draft horses, many of the agricultural fairs in New England have draft horse pulls that are lots of fun to watch. It has to be a real agricultural fair, though, not a "festival" or "carnival" or whatever. The season's pretty much over, but there are many throughout the summer. There is also a group called the Draft Animal Power Network (http://www.draftanimalpower.org/) that has events and field days.
