Several years ago, I worked in the Tribeca area in lower Manhattan. Passed the local precinct with stables most days. Before Xmas, we were planning family day in my office. Wanted things to keep the kids amused. So I stopped by & spoke to the desk person. Asked if any of the mounted officers could stop by & say hi. Well they did. It was such a big hit with the kids. Think the cops enjoyed it also. & someone remembers to bring carrots for the horses.
By the way, I was told the horses retire to a very nice farm in upstate NY when they are ready.
What amazing animals they are...so surreal in a way! My favorite was the photo of the two ponies in sweaters!!! How adorable is that? I bet it was a sight trying to get them dressed! I love that the police came by with the horses to show the kids! And it does my heart good to know they have a proper retirement place to go! Any type of service animals should be well taken care of their entire life! Hope you and the Bears are having a good week! Thanks for your wonderful blogs, Peggy! Hugs, Mary 1146 days ago
