I Need to buy a Horse...

My Jeep gets really good gas mileage (regardless of its evil SUV label), but at this point hay and horseshoes have to cost less than gas....
My girlfriend that lives in London can't take our whining about "petrol" prices as "they have been paying that for years"... Yeah, yeah... But they also get subsidized beer in university campus pubs, so it's all relative right?
Anyway, this guy was set because he already had a horse...

"One man is taking rising gas prices into his own hands. Tired of feeling all that pain at the pump, Jim Jundt was so determined to rein in his spending on gasoline that he got out of bed early and rode his 14-year-old quarterhorse mare to work.
Jundt lives 15 miles south of Minot, N.D., and works as a mechanic at Goodyear Tire & Auto Service in the city.
He said he was only five minutes late riding his mare, Patty, to work.
While he worked, Patty waited patiently, eating hay out of the back of a truck." (source)
