average speed

I just heard that the average speed of a horse drawn taxi in NYC in 1890 was 7 mph. The average speed of a motor taxi in 1990 was 7 mph. Haven't improved much

Haha, New York. Still faster to ride a bike I guess.

And horses don't pollute the atmosphere. Maybe we should go back to that system.

driveing

Well we might all get our wishes if the gas prices keep going up im going to start rideing or driveing to town when I go . I was hopeing to be useing my saddlebred for that this spring but he is still in a big fight for his life from colic and magnesium shortage in his system so I may have to hook the mustangs in a 2 up system to go get feed and grocerys ect and also have fun doing it

You know the amish will get a horse going up to 15 to 20 mile an hour in there buggy and those buggys are heavey and normally have 3 to 6 people in them as well that is the reason there h
Orses don't make it for long most of there buggy horses are 10 and under cause over that they can't handle the long days of heavy buggy runs , That is why I come to get my broadway horse or big red as I call him Now if he will come out of the colic stuff I will be so happy to be able to drive him in my lil oxford wagon and head to town for some R AND R

Egh. I feel so bad for those poor horses =(

I say we just do away with the cars and ride our horses around.

At least then they wont have to be inhaling all the exhaust.
