tweva, I’ve only ever been on a horse once, and that was a rented one at a resort, hence my questions. My transport plan is riding a bike or walking, though I do appreciate the fact that a horse might be a much less labor intensive transport mechanism. I say might given they need to be fed and cared for 12 months a year and the grass only grows here at most 7 months a year. I do have a fenced in sheep pasture and a hay field, the hay from which currently feeds goats. Two different farmers using the land at present.
