I'm skeptical about their hypothesis. How likely is it that the towing animal would be so precise to follow exactly the same path and not deviate more on the road. It's hard to believe that such a cart wouldn't leave tracks are much broader over the years of wear and tear along the road. Note the absence of any trough between the track marks that would indicate wear created by the animal that towed the cart. At least in some cases we would expect to see an animal trough that's deeper than the "wheel tracks" since the animal hoof could impose a larger psi.
