[pct-l] Effects of horses

You know, Dane, I think the problem is between one horse on one trail one
year and 100 horses on the same trail twice a day.   I object to the
latter.   The trail turns into a huge horse-hoof ground gully filled with
horse poop.  You know, my guess is if I used a Montana trail you had taken
earlier I would not even know a horseman had been there.  You need to
experience the mess we have seen to be able to understand why we are so
opposed to horses.  And I think you would oppose the same mess to for the
same reasons.   Drop into a heavily-used area some time and check out the
mess.   People aren't much cleaner than horses, but we gotta hope they are
trainable.   Sometimes I wonder.
