"We had to re-think everything," said lead designer Abraham Moses Jehoshaphat from rural Pennsylvania. "With California outlawing gas-powered cars, we had to research new technology for propelling a four-wheeled vehicle forward. After countless hours of research and billions of dollars, this is what we came up with. It's an organic, intelligent engine capable of listening to your voice commands and even reproducing other engines. A true miracle of modern science.

Interestingly, horse transportation ends up emitting about the same amount of CO2 per mile as a car, it's just that the CO2 it emits is part of a carbon cycle whereas petrol is not really, and least not in reasonable timeframes.

... and we tend to feed horses with crop food rather than strictly wild growing grasses. That means farming and that means petrol consumption and clearing of land for crop use.

Not to mention the horses crapping all over the streets as in my hometown Porto Alegre. Carts were supposed to be outlawed before 2013, but AFAIK they were not outlawed yet.

Horses have a single stomach. They can't extract nutrition from plain green grass like a cow can. They need fruits vegetables, grains/seeds, tubers, lygumes, ect.

Hay has seeds. If you're going to feed a horse only hay it has to be some pretty good hay.

Doesn't hurt to have an apple, a carrot or sugar cubes in your pocket.
