Since we were on the subject of justifying horses as transport and getting rid of U.S. dependence on foreign oil (oops…did I say that out loud?) I thought I’d include a helpful visual for spouses on exactly how the ‘horse-car wash’ would work.
Photo is from 1916, and I left the original German attached: if you hover your mouse over the photo (oops..you have to click on the photo, and the German will be underneath on a new page…ah the trials of learning to blog.), and can speak German, we’d love to know what it says.
(My guess is this is less about achieving clean horses, and more about treating a pestilence of some sort. Poor horse doesn’t look in very good condition. Could use a couple hundred pounds of meat on his bones…)
