Nice horses, why they are sometimes blindfolded in the meadow is a riddle to me!

Has there been any news of Don lately or has he been completely forgotten?

Yes, lovely horses. I know the answer to your riddle. They are not blindfolded. I used to think so too and felt sorry for them until I got it explained to me. The mask is made of some kind of mesh. It protects the horse's eyes from horseflies and other bothersome flying pests. The horse sees through it.

Yes, logical actually, thanks for taking the time to explain here.

Lou

Like you probably have I've thought a lot about whey they blindfold the poor horses. I was relieved to learn what it's really about. I guess it's the use of blinders on nervous horses that made us think that way.
