The horse in the front page

Original post made by Anonymous, Amberwood/Wood Meadows, on Dec 10, 2009


Umm, I think your photographers need glasses. That horse is not munching on a pile of hay. It looks like a pile of manure, shavings and hay left over from stall cleaning. People who keep horses don't create large piles of hay that size for their horses to eat. They generally take a flake or two from a bale of hay and let the horse eat that in its stall or pasture. You might have a few wisps of hay strewn around on the ground when the horse is finished, but nothing like the size shown in the photo.

I thought of another possibility, maybe the "Pleasanton Weekly" reports are correct after all and the horse is eating its own poop! Oh no! nutritional deficiencies!! call a vet!!! lol.

No Cholo, you are wrong, it should be a MEDIUM container of meat. Secondly, it's not meat exactly, more than soylent green made from all the trolls on pleasantonweekly.com

Didn't see the photo, but as a horse owner I can tell you that some horse will eat poop. Other animals like some dogs and cats will do this also. If they do then they should be checked by a vet to see if they have any nutritional deficiencys, It is sometimes called Pica- an abnormal craving for unusual things to eat. Sometimes it starts because the animal is board.
