I might run away for my birthday.

The horses are treated like absolute garbage, are you freaking kidding me!? I’ve seen first hand those horses working in 90+ degree weather, dodging traffic, almost being hit by trucks and cars and breathing in exhaust all day. Should we also talk about how many have died from cars hitting them!? Manhattan is the absolute worst place for a horse to be forced to drag people around. This is bullshit that they haven’t shut this down yet and if you think not you’re extremely ignorant.
Ugh can someone with more time address this.
In the last 30 years, less then 10 horses have been seriously injured or have died from accidents. IN THIRTY YEARS. The horses work every other day, no longer then 9 hours. They are parked with constant access to water, and carry buckets of feed with them. They are given a mandated vacation of a minimum of 5 weeks a year (most are upwards of 6 months). They are seen no less then 4 times a year by a vet, regular farrier work every 6 to 8 weeks, gauranteed retirement. They have a fire sprinkler above every stall, open windows with fans on every level of every carriage house BUILT FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF HOUSING CARRIAGE HORSES.
Enough already with the idiocy and blatant misinformation. Enough. You may think this is just a battle about the fluffy cute ponies you assume you know about, but you don’t. You don’t have a clue. They have jobs, they provide for themselves, they are the partners of men and women who earn their living and are able to give them homes. If this ban goes through you are not only putting these working, healthy, well cared for horses out of a job, but the people they work with too.
Seriously. Stop it.
