Hey there Penn State Study you seem to have for gotten to do the amount of HUMANS being in this river floating it and not taking a Pee break while floating it other than just pissing into the water, can you get those facts and study that? Nope just keep on the trail riders.. Or how about all those fine people who out here in the country use LAGOONS or run offs from there homes straight to the river!! Yes you forgot those studies as well. Horses do not typically pee into the water unless standing for very long periods of time by the rider and them allowing a horse to do so.. You also forgot to include in your study the amount of cattle allowed to be near and around and pass through the river up stream..You also forgot the study of your fine "jetboaters" and the nasty stuff they do on this river that people are complaining about all the time! open sex, drugs,large amounts of alchol and no I dont think they care when or where they decide to take a piss at or a shit for that matter... Here is a fact for you Penn State with out the CCTR your town would not be a town you would not be a bleep on the map except for the floaters but even with the floaters a % of those people come from the trailrides so shut down the CCTR then when that doesnt fix you problem start with the floaters and so on and so forth then Eminence will be what?? NOTHING BUT MORE POOR SHANNON COUNTY since we are the POOREST county in missouri did you check into that Penn State?

According to this article a 180 pound human shits about 1 pound per day. So it would take over 50 people to shit as much as 1 horse in a day.

well tree hugger why dont you and everyone else bitchin about the trail rides and not getting you fair share of the income write to the legislation and try with all your might to put a stop to what is going on then you would have done something successful in your life!!! I am sure as a "TREE HUGGER" you know the web site to voice your concerns to the legislation and try the Conservation dept as well and stop posting on such a B.S. post such as the topix!!! you all are pretty good about complaining and gryping but you dont put it into action!!! Small words is all this is nothing more nothing less..
exactly how much time do any of you spend at these rivers anyway??? and exactly why are you upset over the CCTR are you jealous because they are making soooooo very much money that they dont have to spend there winter in this god forsaken place!!! Get over yourself or do something about the situation

<quoted text> That is right and you multiply that by 3 for the the over 3000 stalls in the flood plain that the cctr advertises and you have over A MILLION POUNDS OF POOP in a weeks time. Don't forget that a horse pisses over 3 gallons per day and that would be about 63,000 gallons of piss to go along with it. They say all of this is not a problem and they clean up after the rides, LOL!
WOW! That is alot of crap not to mention all of the humans that go along with it and we only have a city sewer designed for the 600 hundred people in town. This all a big bunch of crap with lies producing millions of nasty flies.

525 tons of horse shit produced in 1 week. What do they do with it. Do they keep the smell under control or does the public get the full aroma and the benefit of the millions of flies to come with the big pile of shit and carry disease all over the place?

Kinda showing your ignorance on this one. 525 tons huh ? Well my dumptruck hauls 3 tons of gravel. That's 175 loads of horse poop according to your figures.Probably more because of the density compared to gravel. And you claim that is just one trailride huh ? What I want to know is how do you explain that after all these years of trailrides they don't have their own mountain ? Because I can tell you 3 tons would make a pretty big pile.My bet is somebody is paying big money for fertilized garden soil for their garden aka horse poop. I'm sure it doesn't go to waste.Jim Smith isn't a stupid man. Having lived here for some time I can't say I have ever smelled horse poop if a horse wasn't around. But I can say the same things about the cattle too. Some ppl just like to whine about one of the only profitable businesses in the area and use tree hugging as a way to do it. Whine away ....it's your constitutional right. Just like it is CCTR's right to continue to operate their business regardless of how you feel about it.

and I agree with the Proud repub because all this is about is a bunch of BS, Horse BS actually and yes these tree huggers are whiners and some of the others are jealous of the fact Jim Smith is making allot of money, and no the wild horses are Not native to our area especially the one who were sporting shoes this past winter I would say several of these "WILD HORSES" are very much let loose from people who do not want them or cant keep them or simply think it is funny but they are not WILD by nature they become wild.
So lets get off the CCTR and on with the fact of Shannon county is broke and your town is headline news these days and pretty unsafe according to recent studies.. Poeple being shot at at the local steak house drugs being made and sold and the latest over looked issue Dry Bean and the body found dead, do you not think you might want to start with the SHIT in your town and leave the tourists alone

Well it appears that a lot of people think that Eminence depends on horse shit to survive. Does that mean it is a shitty town?

Gee , do you think they drive from all over the country to go to Sunday school here ? They come because it is a party vacation for them. If you want more Sunday school then join a church . They are exercising their constitutional right to get drunk and have fun. Get used to it because they will be coming for lots more years in the future too. Just think , when the economy finally picks up even more might come. Then you can really whine lol.

So you think that they're the only ones that come to your little smudge in the road and your "pristine" river (why not get some big jugs of it to take home and drink,if you really believe that!) to drink and get stupid? None of the locals do that,they're all in church/Sunday School most of the time and never drinking or on the river? That's REALLY a load of horses***.

I float the river alot and if they just keep the crossings to the few designated ones like they are supposed to that would eliminate over 90% of the problem. This their choice as well as being complete ar$holes about the hole situation.

You act like the trailrides happen every day.... when in reality it's a few times a year. Get over it.If you think I believe you get out of your float to pee instead of peeing in the river I'll sell ya a bridge somewhere. Find another pet peeve cuz this one isn't gonna change anytime soon.
