    My horses are in and out at their leisure. Right now, caring for them takes about 10 min. A day as they are on pasture. When the bugs are bad I'll spend another 10-15 min and stuff a few small mesh hay nets when they wish to stay inside. My quad pulls an old box spring (from a bed) to scatter manure which does away with the odor and dries to powder. This takes about 20 min. Weekly. You can't be there all the time and the horse needs enough room to outrun dogs that may decide to give chase. Horses being herd animals need a companion, another horse, (a mini) even a goat.

    We couldn't afford to keep our guys at livery plus I like having them in walking distance from the house, particularly if they are old or foaling.

    In winter it takes me normally about 1 1/2 hours unless it is snowing then it takes most of the morning that's to feed/water/check on ect 11 ponies and our flock of sheep.

    Buying a property that is specifically equestrian will probably work out about 10 times more expensive then buying farm land that will have barns that can be turned into stables, at least that is the case in the UK.
