To get the cart before the donkey


Senior Member
Does this sentence have the same meaning than "to put the cart before the horse" ? It seems like the same, but I'm not sure. Is it correct ? I'm reading Barbara Kingslover's short stories, so I think so..
Thanks for helping,:thumbsup:

    I can't imagine any other meaning of it, so yeah, seems right.
    Looks to me like she just changed the verb and the equine a bit for flavor.
