Thumbs up My own barn on 40 acres all for $75

All the stress is GONE! Thank god, I found this lil barn on 40 acres (used for hay) The barn needs work, part of the floor needs to be replaced, 4 stalls, hay loft, there is already a little paddock place but I need to fence in with hot wire which is perfect cause Gypsy isn't on grass at the moment.
The owner wanted us to name the board price! We were like "u------h is 80-100 ok?" hes like "$75!"
Its a month to month deal, which can be a little uneasy any one of us can back out of the deal. But heck he kept telling us him and his Girl friend just want another heart (animals lovers). Hes happy as long as he doesn't have to feed or chase after horses.
Im SO excited! 8 days and counting till Gypsy comes home! The people who are leasing were going to charge 45 hook up fee and 45cents to the mile for both ways. Which would of been $103 for just an hours drive, then I found this lady who actually takes lessons at the barn where Gypsy is at and is going to charge $80 to haul on the 22nd! 6 months with out a horse, it was an ok break but CMON I NEED to ride!!
Oh! Even better the Loft is full of hay, he was going to have his kid take it away cause I guess its a year old but looks in good shape. So were going to see if we can just take it. How awesome would that be?!
Anyways just had to share cause things are FINALLY turning out!
COOKIES N CAKE FOR ALL!

Didn't work out, after the loan people gave us the first amount and which would of cleared the asking for the house, we signed the papers to go ahead on the loan, then what we got back was a loan price of 12k not the 140k......its like wth can you buy with 12k.

Oh geez. Yeah 12k is not going to get you far!! What a bummer.

That's an amazing deal on this place, I hope it works out great for you! *hugs*
