I have been doing some research on the living conditions of the carriage horses of NYC.
I don't want to persecute anyone who is a fan
Or into that business.
There is nothing wrong with a 9 hr. Work day, horses are meant to be used that is their purpose.
It seems that the living conditions of these beautiful animals is less then good.
They have no running water or ventilation in the stables. Their stalls are60sq ft. In diameter. It looks like the life span goes.to 15 yrs. At best
There should besome water source for them when they are out working.
If so much money can go into lobbyists and lawyers, what has gone to improve this gentle giants living conditions.
I would love to be proved wrong.

I'm not trying to detract from what you are saying - I oppose animal abuse just as most other people, and think it should be punished when found. But I do think that most people today have an absurdly high standard about how horses, and other animals, should be treated. If you don't work a horse, it will run around the pasture like a goofball and work itself, it likes to stand in the rain, roll and sleep in the community poop pile, hates stalls and paddocks, and will be happiest snd healthiest when left to munch all day instead of being fed meals...
