Horse Diapers Might be the Rule

Nauvoo, IL – Navoo might require diapers on horses being used for the horse tours of town. Mayor John McCarty says when the nuisance committee met recently, the residue from numerous horse-drawn tours of the town was the first issue brought up. McCarty says horses being used by the LDS tours of Nauvoo are already being diapered, but others are not. He says it's hard to sell a town as a tourist destination when the streets aren't clean. McCarty says the committee will work up a draft ordinance requiring the diapers on horses pulling vehicles in the town. He says those riding horses would be required to clean up after their own mount.
