Re: transport horses
Whatever happened to walking, rollerskating, bicycling?
I haven't bought a car in 13 years.
While I do admit to renting cars occasionally, when I need to transport something heavy, I think cars are so massively over-used, that a bad ending seems unavoidable.
Just don't forget, that Ford, Exxon and Goodyear conspired in the first half of the last century to dismantle public transportation in Los Angeles, in order to sell more cars, tires and gasoline.
And in the latter half of the last century, Coca Cola corporation offered to help fund Los Angeles public schools with just one condition: remove classes on proper nutrition from the curriculum.
