I'm lucky to be about 200 ft away...fantastic in the winter when I can just stumble to the barn, feed and then go back to bed and finish the other stuff later. :)

i COULD keep horses on my property but I only have a half acre and the dogs I raise take up most of it. So there is a nice stable about 3 minutes away from me that I use. Plus its nice to have access to the arena's and trails on the property.

My barns about 6 min. on a good day. LUCKY ME!

I cant imagine driving 45 min. to see my horse! Crazy!

About 200 feet away from the house. I have 15 acres. Its nice to look out the window at the white rail fencing and the horses in the pasture.
