I believe most people do not realize, many vehicles were used in WWI and most were too large and clumsy to move supplies and equipment to the front lines of battle.  It was more of a common place to use horses and mules to pull equipment around the death and destruction of the war zone.  

The horse death tolls were incredible and to keep up with the need of more horses, over 1,000 a day had been shipped from the United States.  By the end of the war, the United States had lost 116,000 horses with 204,000 wounded.  WWI marked the end of horses used in the battle field.
