Re: [RC] GENERATORS - Firedance Farms Arabians

Something that I had not considered about generators until this year....  Three of us and our horses were camped and sleeping soundly for our 100 mile ride that started at 6:30am.  At 3:30AM  our neighbor started the generator, turned on the lights, and fed the horse!  Ok, *I* can go back to sleep, but now the three horses were awake, their neighbor was eating, they wanted to eat,and they were not going back to sleep.  So instead of them getting a couple more hours of rest, they ended up pacing and whinnying and wasting energy before the 100 mile ride.  (BTW the person was doing a 25 miler).
Your horse and my horse need the rest before a ride, so please give them some repect for quiet and DARK.
