The Seaboard Airline had specially built HW cars for transporting race horses between New York and Florida.  As I remember, they were built in the mid 1920s, and were about 75 ft. long, and had several doors on each side for loading/unloading of the horses.  They had stalls for the horses, along with watering and feeding systems, and space for handlers to ride.  I think they were still in service when SAL and ACL merged into SCL.
