  1. I love it! I think it’s endearing! They are caring for her, loving her and cleaning up after her….yeah, horse poop stinks but they’re cleaning it up in a timely manner….I don’t understand what the complaint is! I love that she has a nice home and “parents” that love her! 🐎🐎

  2. I think it's a wonderful idea to welcome a horse everybody has a cat and a dog and a bird why can't a horse be somebody's pet

  3. Tough 🔥

    I remember the oil tanks near Bayonne, NJ the summers of the 1980's, they had the race horses ( Meadowlands etc…stored ) run around the oil tanks grass area. We used to see them from a distance on our bikes and thought it was so cool.

    Leave them alone, maybe a little return to nature will do the critics some good. Time to stand up to what you love ♥️🌹🔥
