Before NYC puts another group of people out of work. Why don’t they hire two veterinarians to do field examinations. A simple saliva strip can immediately tell you if the horse is dehydrated or malnourished. A day light visual examination can tell you if the horse is being physically abused. If the horse does not pass the field examination, it is put out of service and the owner fined. Guess who pays the annual salaries of the city vets (drum roll please) you guessed it, the hansom cab owners. Because I don’t trust our new beady eyed mayor or his motives.
