Now that is the perfect photo showing the conversation from horse and wagon to the automobile. These photo's I love the most.
The conversion was hard for some.
Thank you Gary,I really like your poem. It makes me think about how I feel driving my Model Ts, because if your not driving a Model T it's just transportation.
Actually feel sorry for the horse! He had to know sooner or later it would be his time to be replaced.
There are more horses in the USA today than in 1900, but they don't usually do anything but burn hay. How often do I see any of the horses around here being ridden, or pulling a vehicle? Hardly ever. Sort of like the local Model T's. There's a bunch, but I don't see them being driven.
Lots of Amish around here so lots of horses in use.
