Should not horses be treated equally to dogs?
The story about the ridiculous offence of calling a police horse gay prompts me to ask, why is it that dog owners must clean up after their pet or face a fine/hearing (fairly enough), police horses can go around dropping shit all over the place (gosh, can I say that? is that impolite to the horse?) without any attempt being made to pick it up?
Sure if they are in "hot pursuit" it might be excused, but when they are just going for a pleasant morning amble - as I've seen them doing regularly from my last two central London residences, why can't they clean up after themselves?
This is definitely discriminatory ...
