So, let’s say, hypothetically A NUCLEAR WAR KICKS OFF DUE TO PROLONGED INTERNATIONAL TENSION, AND TURNS THE EARTH INTO A BLEAK, HOSTILE WASTELAND. Now, let’s flash forward 197 years, to 2259. By now, humanity has reestablished its presence, and has rebuilt itself up to a mid-19 century-esque style of living. You see, back when that little radioactive party kicked off, a lot of animals didn’t make it. Namely, all Equidae are now extinct.
Now, my question is, how would transportation of goods and people in a 19 century-sequel setting be handled without the utility of horses.
