From the horse’s mouth (January 7, 2017: New York Daily News)

South Richmond Hill: You mean we allow horses to actually pull wagons, carriages and coaches? Something that has never been done before in our country or the world. They are forced to eat oats instead of a nice warm meal prepared by one of New York’s top vegetarian chefs. They must sleep in a stable and not in places like the Trump Tower or Plaza Hotel. Tsk, tsk. Before you know it, human beings will start riding on their backs. Oh, the horror! We must stop these atrocities or we will become uncivilized savages. Joseph Napoleone
