The carriage horses will now get 5 weeks off a year, and an extra vet visit annually. I wonder what they will be doing with their new time off? Hang out at the South Street Seaport?

This is a bill passed through the NYC City Council. But it would be nice if it were a federally mandated Bill extended to us humans. 5 weeks off a year and an extra doc visit would be sweet.

But, alas, there is no free "Haytrough". To pay for this carriage rides will go up to $50.

Those horses always look so sad. Perhaps this will put a smile on their snout.

In a related story, check out this pimped out Hummer Carriage...

Here in Philadelphia, at our version of Central Park, we even teach disadvantaged urban youth how to play polo at the Chamounix Equestrian Center.

I really should prance up there and sign up for horse riding lessons -- technically I already know how to ride a horse seeing that I grew up in the major elitist equestrian county of Virginia, but I've only ridden a horse one time in the past 10 years.

Disadvantaged Urban youth? - yes I would be there in a heart beat for lessons.

I too am quite nimble on a horse. My father trained and raced Thoroughbreds.

Plus, I rode Bareback in High School... Won a buckle for it. (and to nip the sarcasm in the bud, I'm referring to riding horses without a saddle in a rodeo)

Hey Will,

If you don't mind my asking... Where does a horse go when on vacation?  Is there a special equine resort in the Bahamas?  A barn n' breakfast in the green grass of Wyoming?   ;D  Have the best day

Well I'm just as perplexed as you. It's possible they just go ver to Jersey and smoke crack for 5 weeks.

I remember a bartender in Long Beach who once said his first sexual experience was with a horse.  This was a bartender in a gay bar and I do not know if he was a top or a bottom.   ;D  Have the best day
