I have been getting to know my neighborhood horse people... first for 
their manure, but recently I had a strong feeling of recognition that 
their skills are a dying art and that "they" generically speaking often 
have a respect for the creatures they live with which transfers to other 
powerful spirits.  I have however seen some brutal grazing density.

I think specialization is a natural part of a community.  Many folks get 
wrapped up in self-stuff to the expense of interdependence.

proofs in the pudding.  Doesn't sound like the 'type one' error concept 
applies clearly to this situation.  Land already cleared... horses serve 
potential function with minimal impact if properly stocked -- watch out 
for density-Dependant impacts, protect water courses.  To me landscape 
position error has not been adequately assessed to cast judgment.  
Premature judgment suggests pain/grief/anger.
