I saw another one this week

Saw another horse trailer flying down the road with the horses heads sticking "way" out the window... Their heads were clear out over the center line of the narrow but busy highway. One little mis-que of either the hauler or an oncoming semi or travel trailer and those horses could well be toast.
I see several of these every year. At least when it gets cold they will run with the windows shut. This trailer had grills for the windows which were hanging down below the open window. It was not hot out.

In California years ago, when drop down windows first came out, a trailer was traveling along a two lane winding road and the horses heads were hanging out. You guessed it, the horses heads were over the yellow line going around a curve and a big truck was coming the other way. One of the horses was literally decapated and the other horse was also killed.
I have drop downs in my trailer and window grates, the windows are dropped down, the grates stay up. Plenty of air, the horses can see out, but no chance of them getting their heads out. I hate seeing that going down the road
