Another reflection from my beach-walk. I’m not a dog owner but I borrow one occasionally, so I’m aware of the social and legal pressure that is put upon us to clean up what we must now call, it seems, our pets’ ‘poo’.

That is all well and good, but having just negotiated a public path on a popular walk, I find myself asking, fairly loudly, why the same duties are not imposed upon people with horses. We may not fancy them in our Tesco Spag Bol, but they can crap anywhere they like? Excuse me?

Could it be that while the dog is the common man’s best friend, laws and attitudes are still framed largely by the horse-owning classes?

    One would need a bloody big pooh bag, and also it would involve one having to dismount and, shock horror, carry a bag of pooh. One has servants for that dahling 🙂

    You know what though, you’re right. Dog pooh or horse pooh, once trodden in, its a pain! Wonder if the other thing is horses are more likely to be on open land, as opposed to walking along the pavement? Meaning its not such a visible problem.

    You have raised a fundamental question. Is there an ‘h’ in ‘pooh’? If so, it leads us to contemplate Winnie the Turd.
