Horse Carriages Are Back
I'll have to admit I don't think I ever saw the old horse carriages in Old Town, Eureka, back when they had the carriage service years ago. That's probably because I can count on one hand the number of times I visit Old Town in a year.
That said, horses are a fun thing to have around but I'm not sure I understand all the enthusiasm about their return.
The Times- Standard article quotes city council dude, Larry Glass, describing the old carriage business as "a gold mine". He's of the impression the horses were of great benefit to Old Town.
If they were, I have to wonder why the owners gave up on the carriage business?
I vaguely remember reading about the carriage business shutting down some years ago. Can't remember the reason for it, though. Does anyone else remember the details?
I think it's a fun idea, but I'll have to admit to being much like Larry Glass was when the carriages first showed up some years ago. I'm skeptical they can really make a go of it, but I wish them luck.
