There's a horse farm and stables right smack dab in the middle of our neighborhood. At the end of one of the streets you can walk right up to the fence that separates the humans from the animals and the area where the horses graze and are fed their daily hay.
And the other day when we walked up to that fence and the boys petted their heads, and got a little skittish when they snorted, I got a little sad.
Why you ask?
Because they plan to drill for natural gas on this very spot, right in the middle of the farm and OUR residential neighborhood and frankly, I am NOT happy about it.
I hope they change their minds or the funding falls through or something. I know, I am probably totally disillusioned but I'm okay with that.
