Carriage horses are suffering on city streets across America. To learn more, visit PETA's campaign page.
UPDATE: Ashley Cline, a representative of the Old South Carriage Co. where Blondie works, told The Dodo on Saturday that Blondie is doing fine after he was monitored overnight at a vet clinic as a precaution, and the company's horses are well-cared for.
"We rescue these horses from the Amish country where they are worked 12-14 hour days," she said. "Here in Charleston they enjoy working only 5 hours a day with plenty of vacation time on our 65 acre plantation retreat on John's Island."
