Horses!

Feb 14 2010

In our car-obsessed society, it's rare to see horses used as people movers.  Today, I saw an unexpected sight - 2 horses tied up at the rail in front of the local Dunkin Donuts.   It was so funny, so odd and yet amusing to see the riders just hanging out on the porch with their coffee while the horses waited patiently.   You don't think of horses and Dunkin Donuts.  Guess the riders needed their daily java while riding their horses.  

Surprisingly, New Hampshire has a lot of horses, and I often see horses but very few cows.  Makes me wonder if the horses outnumber the cows in NH.   Even one of my students is a horse vet.   NH does not deserved it's nickname - Cow Hampshire.   In my town and next town over, we do have quite a few horses and a riding school.   It's been 30 years since I've been on a horse.
