Isn't it inhumane for horses to pull the downtown trolley in all of this heat?

"It definitely is not inhumane," said Rob Phillips, co-owner of Kansas Carriage Co., who drives the trolley. "There's water, which is offered to the horses on an hourly basis. The horses are changed with no more than 3.5 hours' work in this heat. We don't move as quickly as if it were cooler."
