  1. A horse is a pretty big thing to not miss. Those roads are so tight. Sorry about the horse.

  2. How far do you have to have your head stuck up your ass to hit a horse!!!
    Sad!!

  3. Just up the road from where I live. I quit riding on the roads around here because people drive too fast and don’t have their heads stuck up their ass but on their phone! DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE.

  5. Drivers drive way to fast in the area. I’ve witnessed 70+ mph. The county traffic engineers refuse to lower the speed limits. They now have blood on their hands. Hope the driver is charged to the full extent the law allows.
