I FIND Vernon Turner s comments (Letters, January 17) rather amusing, but misinformed. The pony and my daughter are adequately insured for road use. He is regularly shod to protect his hooves from the asphalt, and has a full MoT , as Mr Turner calls it,

The pony and my daughter are adequately insured for road use. He is regularly shod to protect his hooves from the asphalt, and has a full "MoT", as Mr Turner calls it, to state that he is fit and healthy. I've never heard of an emissions test on a pony - does it test how many times he breaks wind?
The pony does not queue at the Post Office. I don't think he would fit through the door. If he needed a tax disc, I'm not sure where I would put it. I also did not have to queue for my tax disc. I got it online in seconds.
Manure is an excellent fertiliser. It is the car ruining the planet, not the horse.
I do not scoop the droppings, as this would cause a traffic jam. We are lucky to have a pony that hardly ever disgraces himself in public.
I would love to buy a horsebox, but money dictates otherwise - unless Mr Turner is offering - to avoid being inconvenienced by the one horsepower speed.
