I was talking to my NYC born and raised dad on the phone the other night about how I was clearing the wooded lot by the barn mostly by hand because of the rock breaks. "You ought to get a horse again," he suggested. Hmmm. I'm not big on the idea of a team again for various reasons. Can I get away with a single? I don't have a lot of work - mostly pulling tree stumps under 12'' in diameter, moving the odd round bale, and plowing up modest garden areas (1/4 acre), maybe some mowing. I don't want to rule out oxen or mules, but they're rare around here so it would most likely be a horse.
