Too small a place for a livestock guardian dog. I know people who have them.. and it is several acres, not two and this small an area most LSG dogs will not stay put but roam.

Install electric fence. Battery operated if you do not have power there or you can use solar. It can give a good jolt. Put signs up warning people of the electric fence (tho I never did.. I put up posted signs and let nature take its course). Low wire or two to deter dogs from going underneath. Secondary benefit is the horses stay off the fence. This option is less expensive than a good LSG dog.

In NY it is legal to shoot a dog that is harassing livestock (of course, you need to be able to legally and safely discharge a firearm to do this.. and in NY it is 500 feet from a dwelling, cannot carry over another property or road etc etc). Don't ask me how I know about this.
