Don't have the time to watch a video...but do any of the people who want the carriages gone have the perfect way to handle all the horses who will be out of a job if this happens?
I believe most strongly that horses must be given the best and most humane care, but I'm not opposed to a horse working for a living. Since these horses are working in the middle of New York City, they are under the scrutiny of a huge population...it would be like a thousand animal welfare workers watching the horses every day. And I doubt that a New Yorker would be shy about stepping in and raising a ruckus if they thought for a minute that one of the horses was being abused.

good comment, Baroque. Never thought of that aspect. Maybe the owners/drivers or whoever could agree to do more for the horses in order to reassure the horses will be well cared for.

Don't necessarily want the gone - just keep them in Central Park.

That sounds like a workable idea.

They already ARE well cared for. The Mayor won't even meet with the Carriage Association to work anything out.

Yeah, I'm with Kip on this one. I don't like how the mayor is handling this at all.
It's a complicated issue and because the carriage industry represents such a small percentage of the voting public, he's not gonna take the time to listen to them.

It's not complicated at all. The carriage industry has been well regulated for years. deBlaiso want them gone to repay big campaign donors, who want the land where the stables are for development.

Interesting! But I never once thought his motivation was for the welfare of these horses. They are treated well. I just think they belong in Central Park away from engine traffic. They are at far less risk in the park.

I've been on the carriage drivers side of this for a long time. Just about every anti argument is a flat out lie that any small amount of unbiased research can disprove.
