Work Horses

Yes, one could walk or take the tourist bus, but isn’t there anything more romantic than a carriage ride through an old, historic city, especially if it is the one voted most popular in the United States?  Now one can even see Charleston, SC by night in a horse carriage that is illuminated with little sparkling yellow and blue lights!

Every day, twelve months a year, day and night, horses, such as the one shown below in its work gear, pull carriages holding eleven or more people.  They share the busy, crowded city streets with cars, have to constantly stop and go, and carry a bag with their own excrement.  I wonder if these work horses’ spirits are broken?
