Hey, St. Paul! We'll Store those Horses Here in Minneapolis.

This story made me laugh. The City of St. Paul wants to build stables for their police horses in the city. Currently, they transport the horses from a far-out suburb. Instead, they want to use Como Park (located in St. Paul), but the neighbors don't want it to happen.

I have a suggestion if they can't find a suitable location in St. Paul. Use one of the many closed libraries or schools in Minneapolis to store the horses. Minneapolis is much closer than any suburb. Maybe they could add a horse car on the light-rail connector route between St. Paul and Minneapolis. That would allow them to move the horses to St. Paul without wearing out their hooves.

I like the light-rail idea. But I don't think the horses need their own car. It might help calm people down on their way to and from work.

Why would the Como neighborhood care about a few stables? It's not like it would be a stinky pig farm with a lagoon of stink.

Yeah, why would they care? Como Park already smells like tiger poop.

I can fit one horse right in my backyard. Hobbs needs a buddy to race and frolic with.
