It was me that posted about 1 horse per 3 acres...  We have 10 acres in
pasture for 3 horses.  At that pasture load, they are out on grass without
supplementation (except hay when the snow gets too deep - we're in the Lake
Effect snow belt).

I COULD keep 1 horse per 3/4 acre, if I wanted intensively manage the
property.  I prefer to see my horses grazing on lush pastures.

For me, the question is how large an acerage do I need, since LUSH
grass is not healthy for the horses... founder was my teacher... so
Now I prefer Hay, We actually are selling half our property because we
do not need it...
