On last night’s The Daily Show (basically the only show I watch, other than Glee) Jon Stewart slipped in a quip about Manhattan’s West Side—he called it the “sad-eyed carriage horse district.”

Couple that with a recent episode in which Jon stood up to Liam Neeson’s claim that the horse stables on the West Side are miniature luxury palaces, saying, “I don’t think living on 52nd and 11th is a holiday for a horse,” and I’d say that Jon is a regular hero for horses.
I think we should all join Jon in speaking up for horses who are abused in the carriage industry.
