Warm welcome to dogs and horses at Fairfield beaches, however...

It is enjoyable seeing dogs at the Fairfield beaches again. Lots of fun to see them at play with their families who also pick up after their pets.

Despite the majestic sight of horses trotting through the sound, it is upsetting to see them dump their waste in the water. There are still swimmers all year long. Is there any reason why these horses are not required to wear bags to catch their poop?
