Viper 0, Buggy 1

200-mph ain’t nothing if it don’t work. This guy was so ticked off on his phone I thought he was going to chew me out as I slowed down to take this shot.

Good thing I didn’t mention the Amish guy could have given him a lift if he needed it.

    1 hourse power vs 500 horses. Old school wins yet again!!!!!

  • When I hear about those terrible car accidents on the news, I wonder why they just don’t go back to horse and buggy. Would horse feed be cheaper than gas?

    • Glade, that would be an interesting investigation! I estimate we pay about $200/year per horse for all expenses; I spend that much on gas for two vehicles in two weeks!

  • Reminds me of a picture a friend of mine took. There were 3 horses inside of a cart-return, the cart return was just like a stall to them. πŸ™‚

    Also hay and water is rather cheap, but time spent taking care of the horse, housing, medical, feed, training, buggy breakdown fixing, and everything else doesn’t out weigh the fact a horse and buggy are slow. Not to mention that where I live car/buggy accidents are rather common and the people in the buggy normally get the worse of it.

    But I just love a good sports car, so I’m bias. πŸ˜€
