Yes, there are housing communities and properties zoned for horses and those that are not. So we would only consider a zoned horse property near neighbors who also had horses. Fly control would be a consideration and I assume there are things I can purchase to put around the stall and around areas where flies might accumulate?
This is all incredibly helpful feedback so please keep it coming! THere is only so much I can learn from a book :).
