These horses, who have been referred to as "product" by supporter and actor Danny Glover, are given the bare minimum. Unlike Liam Neeson, who claims the drivers "love" their horses, Glover states it a bit differently: "I think people need to come by to see the product themselves." By inadvertently revealing more honesty in that twelve-word sentence than anyone has to date, we learn that this is the way the drivers really feel about their horses.
They are products, merchandise. When they get tired and break down like an overused electronic device, they are disposed of - often sent to the auctions.
Any industry that treats its "product" like this is also not going to treat its workers well.
Propaganda - you are being lied to.
The propaganda put out by the Daily News, NY1, Fox News, PIX 11, New York Post and others about the carriage horse issue rivals Communist China under Chairman Mao. The truth is not welcome. These media sources sometimes include a letter-to-the-editor or two, or add a comment by someone who does not agree with them within their articles or TV "news" pieces. But, clearly it is not objective and should shame any real journalist involved in this line of work.
