These guys aren't smelly.

Don't put your limitations on me, man.

That tends to happen when traveling east to west…

We used to live near a pony farm and I never noticed a smell, either.

Well if we're guaging by traffic lights, we're a good 15 miles. The village, however, is a one mile stroll.

I don't think nearest horse is a good metric for boondocksness.

Same here. There's a humongous horse farm adjacent to where I shoot birds frequently and I've never noticed any smell from them.

Cows are a different story. I remember driving through Nebraska where clearly the whole county, possibly the entire state, was stank.

I dunno if we have any bison in the valley but I've seen em up in Flag. They probably don't care for this much heat.

Have you seen a horse's power curve? Drop off a cliff after 5 min. Besides, I'm good for 1 hp for 30sec and I'm more aero. :p

Do your chinstraps hang low? Can you tie them in a bow?

At my age, they wobble to and fro. I can ties them in a not. I can tie them in a bow. I can throw them 'cross my shoulder like a continental soldier.

Half-swallowed and them spat out dead what may have been a bee on the morning ride. Throat is now crazy sore; sitting in the ENT waiting room now to see if everything is ok. Fricking Mondays.

With the Fit, the fuel tank is under the drivers seat, freeing up much space in the cargo area. I can't speak to the hrv, though they look almost identical

I'll bet the HRV is the same. I guess if it blows up it doesn't matter where it is!

I never thought the smell was that bad and they kept the stable area super clean. The last place I lived was in an unincorporated area and people kept horses in their yards. That was never a problem either.

Now pigs are a different story. We used to have a customer who ran a pig farm (ranch?). He would buy a new truck every year or two and the trucks he traded in smelled so bad we would just wholesale them out.

On my Sunday rides I go up a steep little climb next to a yard where the people keep a lot of chickens, peacocks, and other birds. They don't keep it clean and it's pretty nasty.
