    Here’s a (somewhat rare) dark color variant of a Big Longnose Butterflyfish (Lauwiliwili nukunuku ‘oi ‘oi, if anyone is keeping track in Hawaiian :)):

    I had another run with the ladies on the horses, this time I was going slow, on the other side of the road, and I was about 10, 15, or 20 feet behind them, and the one still yelled at to not go behind the horses. I had two thoughts after she yelled at me this time, they were riding side by side and taking up almost half to road, so my first thought was that maybe they shouldn't take up so much of the road, and give people room to get past. My second thought was that if their horses are so jumpy bikes can't go near them, maybe they be shouldn't be riding them on the street.
    I ride past some other stables on another part of my route that I take, and I probably go past closer to the horses there than I was to these ladies, and those horses don't seem bothered by me.

    I have just asked a friend of mine on a different board about this, she is our resident horse-lady. I rode horses long ago but never on the road. Will get back to you if she has some thoughts for you.

    I could tell you what I would've said, but this is a family thread. Sounds like an entitled.....individual that needs to get over herself.

    Yeah, some less than polite thoughts went through my head.
    I was also thinking that they're lucky I at least tried to be polite. There are a lot of assholes out there who would just shoot past at full speed with no concern for the horses.
