In case you missed it

A police horse bolted at the sound of screeching brakes and ran free earlier this month on a street in lower Manhattan. This after throwing his rider, a veteran police officer. Fortunately, the horse, Aldo, found his way back to the stable and the officer suffered no serious injuries.
Thanks, Flynn, for suggesting this worthy topic! Two words: horses spook. More precisely, no horse is unspookable. That's the long and short of it. More later. Say, don't those police horses have NICE DIGS!

Wow, those are larger spaces for the police horses unlike the hellhole they keep those poor carriage horses. Of course space is money and those drivers rather spend the money to get their drink on instead on the horses. SUPPORT THE BAN. WALK please. it is only 2 miles on the long trail. LAZINESS is destroying this world
