  -PETA to Salt Lake City: Ban Cruel, Dangerous Horse-Drawn Carriages The Straight Story  Sep-02-09 01:54 PM   #0 
  - PETA continues to make an ass of themselves  ixion   Sep-02-09 01:55 PM   #1 
  - Actually I believe that would be a "Horse's Ass" of themselves...  truebrit71   Sep-02-09 02:01 PM   #5 
  - I agree, horse-drawn carriages have no place in an urban motorized environment.  Dora   Sep-02-09 01:55 PM   #2 
  - There has been one incident that I can recall in the 30+ years this has been going on.  Drunken Irishman   Sep-02-09 01:55 PM   #3 
  - LOL, thanks for the reply, but what you can or cannot recall is not relevant.  Dora   Sep-02-09 02:09 PM   #8 
     - You're welcome and it is relevant.  Drunken Irishman   Sep-02-09 02:12 PM   #9 
        - Your memory is YOUR memory. It's not a repository of facts.  Dora   Sep-02-09 02:19 PM   #10 
           - well cars are highly dangerous to people, pets, AND horses.  provis99   Sep-02-09 02:23 PM   #12 
           - Yes, cars are dangerous. That's why we drive them on clearly marked roads.  Dora   Sep-02-09 02:29 PM   #15 
           - OK - do you have statistical evidence that horse drawn carriages are getting in accidents  el_bryanto   Sep-02-09 02:26 PM   #14 
           - Of course not. It's entirely anecdotal, but that sure beats one person's "memory."  Dora   Sep-02-09 02:41 PM   #16 
           - Thanks for the reply.  Drunken Irishman   Sep-02-09 02:45 PM   #17 
           - Don't hold your breath. :)  Dora   Sep-02-09 03:16 PM   #18 
           - Well maybe we need to look into this broader.  Drunken Irishman   Sep-02-09 03:36 PM   #19 
           - I guess the Trib is keeping this incident under wraps.  GentryDixon   Sep-02-09 04:07 PM   #26 
           - "Show me evidence that there have NOT been any horse drawn carriage accidents"  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 03:38 PM   #20 
  - I drove in South Florida for 20 years. There were the occasional  HillbillyBob   Sep-02-09 02:00 PM   #4 
  - I think pavement is very rough on their hooves.  zonkers   Sep-02-09 02:21 PM   #11 
  - That is why they have shoes and pavement is not as bad as gravel or even packed dirt with the  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 03:58 PM   #25 
  - So what about the Amish. They may not live downtown urban areas...  LynneSin   Sep-02-09 04:13 PM   #31 
     - Yep. 55 + mph for the cars vs 10 mph for the horse in Lancaster County.  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 04:31 PM   #33 
  - Imagine  Libertas1776   Sep-02-09 02:03 PM   #6 
  - Hey PETA  Botany   Sep-02-09 02:07 PM   #7 
  - So when are they going after amish people?  ronnykmarshall   Sep-02-09 02:24 PM   #13 
  - Yep, and the speed limit there is probably 55 mph, not 25 mph.  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 03:44 PM   #22 
     - Oh I regularly drive thru Amish Country  LynneSin   Sep-02-09 04:10 PM   #29 
  - I feel so bad for those horses. They look so tired and bedraggled  Beaverhausen   Sep-02-09 03:40 PM   #21 
  - Balderdash. If a healthy horse is properly watered, fed and rested they are entirely capable of  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 03:49 PM   #23 
     - head hanging, constantly lifting up one, then the another leg...  Beaverhausen   Sep-02-09 03:58 PM   #24 
        - Head hanging and leg lifting are not signs of a tired horse.  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 04:10 PM   #28 
  - OK, that's it.  Arkana   Sep-02-09 04:09 PM   #27 
     - Horse steak or beef steak?  yellowcanine   Sep-02-09 04:11 PM   #30 
        - Both.  Arkana   Sep-02-09 04:23 PM   #32
