Tote Bag, "Charlie" horse tag, logo T-shirt, and sticker
We love it when you show your love for the horses with a logo tote bag and sticker. The bag is 100% cotton canvas, gusseted, and measures 15" x 18" x 6" and has a roomy 22" handle. 
The tag commemorates the death of Charlie, the 15-year-old white Percheron carriage horse who collapsed and died on a New York City street on October 23, 2011. By wearing it, you remember Charlie and advocate for all of the carriage horses. Great conversation starter.
