Skip to comments.A pony cart

My lady friend in Oregon has been encouraging me to get a pony cart instead of a Vespa. At first, I thought she was joking, but she is not. She has it pretty well mapped out.
The idea has some merit. The local kids would like the pony. (Could be a mule.) So would my dog. It would also be less expensive than the Vespa. In the short run, anyway.
I just dont know what the rules are.
She says that I couldn't get arrested for drunk driving on a pony cart. I think she is mistaken about that. I also think the cart would require a DMV registration (which I can't get these days) if it is to be used on public roads. "They" don't cut you much slack on this sort of thing.
I know it is illegal to keep a skunk in Virginia. I have looked into that. Never mind that any skunk I would get would be domestically bred and raised. A skunk is categorized as a wild animal. so you arent supposed to have them. Vets arent even supposed to care for them. Some will, but you have to keep your mouth shut. They could lose their license.
I have no idea. I also have no idea how to look after them.
I will be finding out in the morning.
The carts are pretty cool. www.horsecart.com
Do you live on enough ground to support the horse/donkey/mule? Is your property zoned for animals? Checked your insurance liabilities?
As for driving a cart on public roadways DUI, you'd still go to jail.
If you want cheap transport - all weather - try a Cushman.

I didn't even read his post and I already KNEW what you were going to post when I saw my ping.
We live in a non-pony country. Lol.
JERRY: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.
MANYA: ..I had a pony.
(The room is dead quiet)
JERRY: ..Well, I didn't really mean a pony, per se.
MANYA: (Angry) When I was a little girl in Poland, we all had ponies. My sister had pony, my cousin had pony, ..So, what's wrong with that?
JERRY: Nothing. Nothing at all. I was just merely expressting..
HELEN: Should we have coffee? Who's having coffee?
MANYA: He was a beautiful pony! And I loved him.
JERRY: Well, I'm sure you did. Who wouldn't love a pony? Who wouldn't love a person that had a pony?
MANYA: You! You said so!
JERRY: No, see, we didn't have ponies. I'm sure at the time in Poland, they were very common. They were probably like compact cars..
MANYA: That's it! I've had enough! (She leaves the room)
If you really want to save money you can just walk
