I believe you completely and this isn't a dig...I'm just curious. Are you 100 years old and/or live out in the boonies?
I'd honestly love to see a horse carriage being used in modern-day commerce. I'm sure the novelty would wear off in about a minute but it would still make me smile.
There's still plenty of folks using a horse and carriage in central Pennsylvania stretching down Southeast. I met a young "Amish" dude who a few car batteries, head unit, few speakers, 2 10" subwoofers and a wine cooler in his. Concealed of course. Great guy.
