I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand I feel badly that the horses have to endure such conditions of being worked 7 days a week 365 days a year and have to dodge the traffic and other horrendous working conditions that a horse shouldn't have to endure.
Well, if they are slaughtered so what? It's not like they are going to breed future horses for Central Park.

People used to commonly get around by horse. But nobody went out of there way to ride horses just to prevent the possibility that unneeded horses might go to the slaughter house.

I hope everybody realizes that those "necessary" bans on smoking and all the other devilish acts can and WILL affect them one day too.

I can;t wait to see what kind of real estate development goes up in place of the horse stables on the West Side.

Happy Holidays everybody.....
I am very happy smoking was banned from restaurants and bars in many states, including NYC. It hasn't affected me because I do not smoke.

I have no problem issuing bans that impact directly and indirectly the health of the general public, such as smoking bans (I'm not having my lifespan shortened because you want to light up next to me). This ban, however, seems silly and unnecessary. Although not quite on the same level as banning certain size drinks at certain establishments (when you think of it, the soda ban was purely a money maker as the "large" drinks that the City attempted to ban are so laced with ice that the soda content as no more than the 20 ounce size still allowed for purchase at certain establishments), this is still ridiculous. The mayor talks out of one side of his mouth about wanting to bring jobs back to the City, but then acts to directly eliminate jobs through stunts like this. The truly sick thing is that de Blasio shows that he doesn't really care about the health and safety of these animals as he claims; indeed, his proposed legislation still allows for horse-drawn carriages in parades and movie sets. This is nothing but a publicity stunt appealing to the extreme fringe.

You're comparing working on a movie set or a parade to being out there 365 days a years 7 days a week? That's the same thing? I'm just saying.

This seems like such a pointlessly minor issue...

Any of these people posting on here probably never even went on a horse-n-carriage ride through Central Park. But let them talk; that's what this forum is reduced to nowadays.

Not really. If passed, this will have a significant impact on the people's livelihoods. That's not pointless to those people. And it doesn't bode well to those who would be in the path of an ever growing city government intent on banning things.

Do you always try to start confrontations with other posters?

I explicitly wrote that the two are "not quite on the same level as banning certain size drinks at certain establishments." In light of that, your question is puzzling.
