Research

Here are some horses that actually often live the way the carriage horses supposedly do

Working on a column about the NYC carriage horses.

Amish horses

Here are some stories I am reading:

What does cruelty really mean

Report from NYC Carriage Horses

Trainer Talk

I'll bet these guys wouldn't mind a heated stable, vacation time, and a vet on call 24-7

After you get this one done, you should write a story about LGD's that are being bred like wildfire and many times end up abused or sadly neglected.

Lots of those dogs are ending up in rescue because the bloom disappears from the rose of "homesteading" and using dogs to guard.

Love Kelly Molloy-McDaniels! Spunky!
Sounds kind'a neat:
" . . horses get 5 weeks off a year; they spend their vacation roaming lush pastures on farms in Upstate New York."

Nita, I wasn't aware of that issue, but I will look into it. Poor dogs

Linda, consider it done. lol

Cathy, In doing my research i was amazed to discover that either the same carriage or its exact duplicate, that I saw on a senior class trip, is still in service. I was writing a description of how I remembered it....from 1970 mind you...and then found a current photo of the same outfit in a newspaper
