There is a thread going right about which type of atv on should get, side by side, 6x6 or just a plain atv. So I propose a different option, what a about a horse. The pro and cons that I can see are.
Doesn't run on gas or electricity
Makes a lot less noise
Can haul a large amount weight
Need to feed and water
Can't really haul two people
Cost of ownership
This has been a debate in my house for a bit with the wife and I was just seeing what others input was.
