YEAH !

The good "folks" get to feel the disappointment of a ban. I am sorry the drivers will be out of a job and tourists will not get to experience the iconic carriage rides anymore BUT that's what you get when BAN CULTURE thrives.

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.....

It's not a done deal yet, but it's being pushed in the city council.

If it passes, the only place those horses are going is the slaughterhouse.

Who owns the stables? If they're privately owned, that's pretty unlikely.

I think the happy notion that these horses will be free to roam the parries of Central park or other open land is just not accurate. Horses cost a lot of money too care for and maintain. What good will a ban do if all the current and future horses are sent to slaughter?

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.
