    NYC carraige horses

    I,ve been looking at the videos of these horses on you tube .has anyone else seen them,I can't believe the propaganda from the animal rights cranks in the comments section,animal welfare people are 1thing ,but animal rights people are a proper bunch of loose wires,has anyone else seen them?one nut job even says the horses would rather be in a field "playing sticks"I've owned some smart horses but I never had 1that learned a game like that

    The youtube population is weird, IMO. You come across a lot of crack pots there. I have seen the videos and comments you're talking about, but it's no use trying to argue with these people, you can't change their minds. I've tried. I've been to NYC and the condition of the horses are fine, there are actually horses out there who enjoy being in the comfort of their stall rather than outside. The carriage horses live similar lives to NYPD horses.

    Honestly, they're probably not even horse people. Either that, or they've been around horses for a short period of time and consider themselves "experts". That's who you'll find down at PETA.

    I've never been to NYC, but I've been driving carriage horses for almost 7 years now. Most of the horses on the streets LOVE their job. Ours are kept on pasture when they're not at work, but they see the trailers hooking up and come to the fences, they love the one-on-one attention with the driver, having a job, getting exercise, and all of the pets and attention they get from pedestrians. The horses are under very strict eyes of the city.

    I've had people come up to me and ask "how do you like abusing a horse?" And I'll always ask them how it's abuse, and then rationally explain every aspect they have imagined up in their little uneducated brains.

    I,ve been and looked at the web site,how do they even get any one to support them?and for what I bet the cost is of driving a horse in New York ,licenses, stabling etc etc ,and then taking the horse out into full public view ,if there was any abuse they would be pulled up in the first five minutes of being on the road..I have a horse lent out that works harder then these horses,if you look on you tube scrap man collecting ,you will see her

    From videos I've seen of those involved with PETA, my son would call them all Zoomers, the social misfits. One idiot said he'd even kill if he had to to protect an animal he saw being abuse. His wife was almost as bad. The biggest zoomer of all was a tall skinny spinster who was the head of the organization and uglier than home made sin and power hungry.

    LOL I can't think of her name but I bet that's the one who said the horses should be free and playing sticks in their fields
