Carriage Horses Need Your Help

Subject: Action Alert: Letters needed for carriage horse rescue & accident
Please write a letter to the NY Times.  It must be done today since things move quickly with these newspapers.  Both of these stories were in the paper version of the NY Times so letters to the paper are acceptable.  You can mix the stories in your letter or do them separately.  But you must not go over 150 words.  If you do, they will not be considered, or if they are, can be edited in a way that you do not like.   Indicate your full name, address and telephone number on the letter for verification if they publish it.
Rescue of Carriage horse - in NY Times (paper version)  7/6/10 - "For A Carriage Horse, A retirement upstate"

Another article that appeared both in the paper version and online concerns a tragic accident in Iowa where carriage horses spooked, causing an accident that resulted in the death of a woman and injuring about 25 people. 

in NY Times (paper version) 7/6/10 "In Iowa, Day at Parade turns deadly when horses bolt with a carriage"

Thank you.
