My neighbour has about 3-4 acres. He still does this type of thing with his horse. He also has a couple of other attachments, like a plow for the garden, hay rakes etc.
There is a funny side to this too. I also have small area back behind my place that borders his pasture. When I take anything back there, like a dolly full of scrap for burning the horse looks at me as if to wonder why I am taking his work away.
