I’d noticed a big pile of manure – not hard, when it’s in the middle of the footpath – in late summer. Today there were fresh hoof prints for a shoed animal. I assume it’s a horse but they seem a bit small, so perhaps it’s more of a pony. In any event, it seemed to stay along one side of the path. The weird thing is that I can’t think of any place within 5 or more miles that has horses.
