So I was talking to my husband and father-in-law today, and they got me excited. My husband and I own the property directly behind my in-law's house (about 1/2 an acre) and my father-in-law was saying we could probably acquire the adjacent property (another 1/2 acre) for a few hundred dollars. Immediately, I thought about putting up a pasture there. :)
Honestly, I'm thinking (even though I would kill to own a horse) that it's not going to work, but I'd like some opinions. The property is about 20 minutes from my house, and even though it's behind my in-law's, I really am not sure if they'd be able to help or even if I would want them to, as far as feeding/blanketing etc goes. There are some trails up in the mountains, but I don't know if there's enough room to have a bit of pasture, a stable/run-in and some sort of round pen/arena to work them in. I'm assuming, of course, that I would need to get two so they don't get lonely. Father-in-law is in love with minis, so maybe I could get a horse for myself and a mini. Would they work well together? Basically my big question is, is it enough room? Thanks in advance!
