I don't know what Houston you live in, but I rarely see horses. Cattle is mainly outside of the city.

And to touch more on the overweight issue in Houston. This is all thanks to Men's Health Magazine who ranked Houston the fattest city in America for years at a time. The media really gobbled that up seeing we don't hear about it as much now that there's other cities that now outrank Houston. Men'sHealth magazine based the obesity rankings on number of restaurants per capita and the number of people who eat out. Not a good way to measure how many overweight people reside in a city!

Nice pictures.

Working in the Medical district, there are lots more people on the streets. Maybe because downtown has the tunnels where most of the people are actually walking and eating in those underground restaurants.

First, regarding this "fat" thing - how ignorant and deliberately slanted of Men's Health Mag. I guess that would make all rural, farm areas with a few greasy spoons skinny places, and NYC and Houston.... Oh, this is too stupid. Some stuck up northern east coast and west coast people like to criticize and make fun of Houston 'cause they are boring snobs who don't know much worth knowing. Thank you C2H for clearing up where this inaccurate stereotype started. The FACTS are more accurate in the Money Mag article, ranking it a "skinny" city.

As far as the horses - what's wrong with horses? I wish there were still more places where you could ride a horse in Houston. When I was a kid many of my friends in 77024 (Hedwig and Piney Point and other nearby villages) had horses and we rode them around the neighborhood. I know I know, that was a long time ago and things have changed. It's still a very nice part of town and we thought the ability to keep a horse in the backyard was a perk. (All yards were a minimum of an acre then, and many were much bigger.)

I have lots of other stories about Houston in the "old" days (fifties and sixties) and horses in many areas that are urban now but won't put you to sleep with them.

Back to my question - what's wrong with horses? There are TONS of horses out here right now in the "nicest" neighborhoods - in Hope Ranch and Montecito in Santa Barbara, in Ojai, in Camarillo's Las Posas area and Santa Rosa Valley, and in many, if not most other cities around here. I'm looking at neighborhoods in Houston with sidewalks and/or trails (to move to), 'cause while the "nice" neighborhoods here have trails they're bridle paths, not paved for people on skates, bicycles or in a wheelchair. (Not to mention the fact that I can't afford those neighborhoods here, and I want to go back "home".)

I realize a horse would not be very happy or get much exercise in most Houston neighborhoods ('cause of the severe shortage of bridle paths and homes with the needed acreage), I'm just wondering why the disdainful attitude about horses from some folks - ? (Maybe I'm overreacting. I don't and won't have a horse, I just think neighborhoods where folks can and do have them are nice. At least out here they are, and they used to be there, before it became so densely populated.)

Most of all - RGV - GREAT PICS; I love 'em!
