yeah. or at least get a bunch of family and friends together and split all the costs and have a fantastic place where we can all be together with no worries. but we will probably still board a few horses and such to make some money.

How big are the holes in the open block wall? They sure look like something a playing horse could get a hoof caught in. Same with the wood frame built around the automatic waterer.

hmm you know. i'm not sure. when we go take a second look i'll bring something to measure them with! although none of my horses rear up and play like that if we were to board that could pose a problem!

From someone who only ever boards:

The barn looks damp and dark... as a potential boarder this is a HUGE turnoff for me. I like a nice clean, well lighted, lots of nice spring smelling breeze blowing in the summer type of barn... when I walk into a barn and it feels like a dungeon (damp, moldy, dark) I walk right away...

Slap on a fresh coat of paint in the stalls, get some better lighting in there, and get the arena drug, it will make a worlds of difference. With a little elbow grease it will be a very nice place!

yeah he drags the arena it just hasn't been used in awhile. he uses it every now and then with his 2 horses that he owns but thats it. and he is having proffesionals do it all. people are comming to pain and loggers are comming in to make more pasture. and we'll talk to im about the lighting issues.

Seems like there's a lot of potential there!

I'd get an inspector to come look at it just to make sure it's safe to be in, it's hard to say what might be wrong with it that you can't see.

Other than that though, it looks pretty neat! Good luck, I hope it all works out for you!

what kind of issues should i be worried about? i know bugs aren't a problem. as there is a yearly fee of 250 for a bug spray that sprays the whole barn and horses included every 45 minutes for flies, ants, ticks, fleas and anything else you can think of. i beat and bangedo n everything to make sure everything was sutrdy and stable. how much would it cost to get an inspector out?
