my belief,, any running engine would be advertisement saying come get it! horse would work,but it also uses fuel that takes room to grow,and its a convenient food source itself to a transient population. my vote would go for one of those small electric walking tractors.quiet,smoke free,easy to hide, could be used for transport with the right implements.could be solar charged,or recharged from any convenient gas fumes if you had to pull it in the hidey hole with you,no water,no antifreeze,no droppings left for scavanging hunters to find.etc problem with horses is simply that it moves,if it moves its more likely to be seen, the fact that it is seen,leads you to be seen because you have to catch it,when you seen together,that means supplies. simple survival tactics,evade your enemies. and when things got that bad,anyone would be your enemy.

What electric tractor is that? Got a brand I can google? After looking at that blueprint... I'd rather say 'here horsey horsey!'.
When my father's LST was beach near Hiroshima, there was nothing to do on it so part of the crew was suppose to go across town do help with some paperwork jobs... the captain hired a Japanese double decker bus to transpost the guys... he said the driver would stop in the middle of nowhere, grab some what we now know was radioactive wood, and put it in a tank in the back of the bus... take off his dirty gloves, put on white gloves and start driving again. The crew got a kick out of that, they thought it was a small wood burning steam train engine in there- they started getting out and helping him collect ... radioactive ...wood every trip. Funny any of them are still alive...
