Hey, it WORKED!! |
Hubby bumped his head or something, he has decided he's tired of the city life and we're going to sell our current house and buy one on acreage. He's already planning out how we're going to afford an indoor arena. Silly finally realized that for what we're paying in boarding costs, we could buy a new place, bring the horses home and build the facilities we need.
He also wants pigs, cows and a tractor. The tractor, yes.... but pigs and cows? All coming from a guy who tried to talk me into a condo a couple years ago.
|I have a different situation on how I afforded my farm. I own the farm my grandpa started in the 50s. I was 15 when my mom had to give up training (unrelated injuries) I sat down with my gpa and mom and asked what the plans were for the future of the farm. Their answer was sell. Didn't sit well with me and I BEGGED them to give me the chance to buy it. I gave my gpa every penny I made at my teenage jobs and cont'd making pmts thru college. Shortly after I got married my gpa had to have major heary surgery (16 hrs) and subesequent back surgery 6 months later. At that point I convinced my hubby that we needed to move to the farm asap to take care of him. Got an appraisal, financed the difference and we've been here since. I made my last pmt on my 28th birthday. I now know that gpa's farm will be a part of the family legacy for a very long time :)|
