Biography: 

In "Fool about a Horse" and again in The Hamlet "the neighbor men" are in the habit of dropping by to see what Pap (in the short story) or Ab Snopes (in the novel) to see what kind of horse he had "brung home this time" (119) or "whatever it was he had done swapped for" (34). It's likely that at least most of these men are tenant farmers on the Holland land too.
