Vashon trails should have bags for horse manure

There is a large double standard I would like to address.

I walk a lot of trails on this island I grew up on, and at almost every trail head, there is a sign with little blue bags asking to please pick up after your dog does his or her business.

The one thing I don’t see on the trails is a lot of dog poop, but on the other hand, I do see a lot — and I mean a lot — of horse poop. I feel like I’m walking through a mine field to avoid stepping on it. So, if we are doing to be fair about this, I think there should be five gallon bags at the trail heads and, excuse the pun, but get down off your high horse and pick up the poop; it’s gross and completely unfair. Poop is poop.
