How are the Chicago mounted police chosen? Do they apply to the force really really wanting to be a horse cop, or are they funneled into a program based on certain characteristics, like previous riding experience? How are they matched up with horses? Why are the horses always brown? Where do the horses live? What happens to the horses when they retire?
