Advocates help carriage horses

Carriage horse advocates have sanctuaries lining up to give the NYC carriage horses good, loving homes when the industry is finally abolished. Carriage horse advocates do not want to see the horses endure one more minute of misery alternately working on NYC streets and being penned up in cramped, decrepit stables on the far West Side, and they certainly do not want to see even one horse killed. The carriage horse industry is a business. It is concerned with making as much money off the horses as possible while they are able to work and after they have worked hard in NYC. The average working life of the carriage horse is four years and with so many horses coming in and out of the industry, who does one suppose is sending the horses to slaughter, earning 40 cents a pound off of them?
