musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

Bobby The NYC Carriage Horse is saved from slaughter

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

If you don't know, I have a section on this site for guest bloggers.  This week I am featuring an amazing and moving story by Elizabeth Hess about the rescue of Bobby a NYC Carriage Horse, now happily roaming around a grassy pasture in upstate NY instead of being someones dinner.  No kidding.....

When people ask if I'm playing in the subway I say.  "if it's too hot for the carriage horses to work, NYC Subway Girl listens."  So I love to be able to share this story about the fate of one lucky horse.  

Thanks to Elizabeth Hess for her tireless work in saving animals and writing so eloquently about them.  And to Rural Intelligence who first printed the story.

I visited Equine Advocates in Chatham, NY this week and had an amazing tour from none other than director and visionary Susan Wagner.  I met Bobby the rescued carriage horse, now living in horse heaven, he looks fantastic and happy.  On November 6th, Equine Advocates is having an amazing benefit and dance performance with horses, if you're in the area should not be missed.  Actress Joan Allen is hosting, follow this link to learn more.
