The Problem With Horses in 1917

From the February 22, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"The police department has been called on of late to take care of horses that have been left standing out in the cold weather, some of them without even a blanket.

"The hitch rails on North Second street have been used extensively of late, and residents along the thoroughfare have been compelled to complain on account of the people leaving their horses standing out so long at a time.  It is a pity that farmers do think enough of their horses to spend a dime or twenty cents and put them in a feed barn especially when the weather was such as it was last night."

Hey, Farmers!!  Take Care of Your Horses!!  --RoadHorse
