I have had it with the news, bail outs galore..where and when will it stop! WHOA!!

My solution: Get a horse and buggy! Yes, I know you are thinking she has gone off the deep end. Well horses as our main mode of transportation maybe our only hope.

We won't need gasoline or diesel fuel. We won't need new roads or bridges. We won't need the "big three" automobile makers. We won't be held "hostage" by foreign countries for oil. Car Insurance Companies will fail, but so be it. Traffic related lawsuits will be non-existent. (So long Lawyers) DUI's will be a thing of the past. (Horses only drink water) Traffic accidents will be few and far between. Fiery accidents with severe burns will be impossible.

We will need horse breeders, farmers to supply us with grain, hay and straw. Carriage and sleigh builders, harness makers, blacksmiths and veterinarians will be in great demand.
Seems like every household will need a hitching post or two, perhaps you could just use one of those SUV's luggage racks, or better yet just park it in the front yard and open the windows that way you could tie up horses on both sides. Everyone will need a small stable, maybe you could convert some of those fancy three stall garages. You could throw away your lawn mower and never have to buy fertilizer again in your lifetime. The "snow birds" are going to have to leave a little earlier than normal for their winter roosts, perhaps they could form Wagon Trains.

We will all have to make some minor adaptations, allowing extra time to get to work every morning...but just imagine the wind in your hair as you gallop along! Giddyup :)


  1. Okay, as long as that buggy seat has heaters, I'll be happy, and Bose stereo system, & AC.
    I like the part about veterinarians being needed more!
    Course we'll still need oil/diesel to fire up the farm equipment to make hay/grain for horses. Would be alot simpler though!
    BTW, I have a Nikon D80, noticed your comment. I heart it so!

  2. LOL! Great! We do need to look at getting rid of cars and all fossil fuel dependent industries though. So why not horses!

    Giddy up.

  3. Hey Dvm wife Thanks for the info on your camera! Well I guess the farmers will have to go back to horse driven machinery..and you will have to get a buffalo robe to sit on and another to cover up with! AC?? Bose stereo..LOL:)

  4. That sounds like a great idea to me!Hmm I will Jack like being hooked up to a
    I may have to hook Belle up with him though.
    Have a good day.

  5. I love your "profile picture." Can I tell a story? We were told there was a spot overlooking a tributary of a small creek that was covered in Ladyslipper orchids and were given rather "precise-vague" directions on how to find it with the caveat to keep our mouths shut. So the kid and I walked up the creek -- literally in the creek -- a couple of miles until we found the tributary and sure enough. There were hundreds of the orchids growing. It was... it was.... awesome.

  6. Amen! Wouldn't bother me much, that's for sure.

  7. Sounds like a great idea BUT, on some of the crowded roads here in the UK we could be waist deep in horse ****. And suffering fumes of a different sort.
    Let's have a trial in the US first - and let us know how you get on.

  8. I am all for it. Just think how good the gardens will look with the extra manure on them.


  9. I've been thinking about the same thing ever since we brought a draft horse home. I'd love to get rid of the cars and just use the carriages. Much slower pace of life too.
    Great idea!


Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your comments! If you have a question I will try to answer it here. Connie
