Absolutely!

Sidebar: About 10 years ago DW and her son went out riding and decided they were hungry. Instead of going home they rode into town and went through the drive-thru at McD's. She said the employee's went nuts! So much so that it got the attention of the people in the dining room. They got their order and as they rode away, the windows were lined with people watching them go. Must have been quite a sight. :)

I was in McDonalds one day and these two guys were there eating. They had just come from a rendesvous and were still in their leather "costumes" from the 1800's complete with beaded mocassins. I was sure wishing I had my camera with me then!

So are we accoding to the masters you'll need a CDL license to pull a plow because farming will be union and if you ain't union you can't grow food anyway.Just read about this new plan today.another ball & chain from Agenda 21.
Americans need to wake up.We can run but we can't hide.

Rev, that depends on the kind of ground ya wanna cover. :) My horses can swim (that is a ball), plow through brush, climb hills I sure wouldn't wanna pedal, pull a plow, sleigh or buggy, and they can leap tall buildings...........well, ok. They can't do that, but they do a mighty fine job producing nitrogen-rich organic matter. :2thumb:

It's a pretty decent idea. Horses can be used not only for transportation, but work as well. Utilities and manuer, ect ect. Very useful animal. On the other hand, you'd have to figure out a plan to keep them fed and watered as well as yourself and your family.

Horses? Nahh...

When I get my own place, I want either hebra or camels. They don't need grain, and will strip leaves off of trees. Of course, this'll be on my swag island, so... yeah. A ways off.

A horse would be nice but that's alot of water and food. I've had 6 horses and been around a lot more. They leave a very traceable trail. Very load and noisy and if you are hiding you can't turn them off or brush leaves over them. It is more than just throwing a saddle on the m and riding to safety. They take a lot of care. One groundhog hole, sink hole or barbed wire fence. And you have to carry 200lbs of gear by yourself. A very good option as a BOV though

And you will still have to carry that 200 lbs gear (or not) when you run out of gas ...

Just saying ...

But a truck is shelter and safety. Animals are much more fragile. When it comes down to it I would not have to choose to give my last clean gallon of water to my family or my truck. With a horse you would have to choose.

Well you can eat your horse but not your truck. At least the horse is easier to chew. LOL

Agree 100% on all of this. If you can do all the care and have the money, go for it. People without a lot of land and on a tight budget have zero percent chance of keeping a horse for preps; there are a lot less costlier alternatives.
