some for me, some for you

. . . and it looks like the pigeons have learned that
this sweet horse knows how to share.
There's a group of people who are fighting to ban
horse-drawn carriages in the city—and
I can't say I disagree that this is no life for these
animals (especially in extreme weather).  
When I walk along  Central Park South, I have
to pet (and maybe get a nice nuzzle
from) some of these hardworking horses.

[Linking back to Ruby Tuesday and Our World Tuesday.]


  1. Great photo!
    Beautiful horse!
    And what would happen to the horses if they were banned? You would like to think of a life of leisure in the country, but that might not be the case. It is a complicated problem with no easy solution.
    Have a great day!

  2. It has to take a huge toll on their legs to constantly walk and trot on the hard pavement. At least they are well fed. - Margy

  3. Such a handsome horse. I always feel sorry for horses that have to pull and carry heavy loads.

  4. Lovely shot. Here is a connection to a carriage horse commentary. http://www.equiculture.org/carriage-horse-myths.aspx

  5. Here in B'ham, there's the Peanut Depot. They are usually still warm when you buy a bag and people start cracking them open on the street. You guessed it...birds and pigeons!

  6. Nice horse. It's not much of a life for the horse. Hard pavement, car fumes, the noise and the traffic so I can understand.
