Little Things You Notice

My village has one unique thing, that you only start to notice after a couple of weeks of walking around.

Down near the only real German restaurant left open, there is an authentic horse trough sitting there, with running water going into it.  It's a village-operated thing.

Some villages have a water fountain.  Some have fancy statues.  My village has a horse trough.

How many horses will sip from it?  Well....I'd be the wrong person to ask but I'd take a humble guess that maybe once every ten years.....someone brings a horse down to the center of the village and he takes a 10-minute pause.  I won't vouch for the's probably piped over from the city water.....which runs off some mountain stream.
