It sounds really nice the way you set things up! You are right about keeping my horse by the neighbor's for now. I have confidence he will be well taken care of, as I have known the man's good reputation well over 35 years ago! Its just awesome it happened that he moved to that area over something like 5 years ago, and we just happen to find 7 acres for sale across from him! We finally have someone looking at our house this sat. We had it for sale for 3 weeks now. I know it could be nothing, but I hope that sometime hopefully before spring we sell. We will be moving 2 1/2 hrs north, living in our cottage, until hopefully someday soon we can build a small house on that land, and rent out the other. My grandma was born in crystal Falls MI, so I went to upper MI alot! We went to Iron River somewhat too. I think I like the electro braid for electric fence. Maybe we could fence in about 1 1/2 acres next year. I found an "arc horse stall" front with door, and they seem to be made well, and are reasonable. How many horses do you have? I do want my horse to have a buddy. The neighbor man lost a horse he had for 20 years, about 2 weeks ago. He was 24. That was hard on him. He now has a 18 mo old colt, but that colt is the most loving horse I have ever met, since my horse over 35 years ago, I had back then! He grabbed my jacket and held it.I had my jacket on the ground. ThenI put my jacket all around his back, head, etc, he was great-didn't care a bit, and wanted to be hugged alot! I wish my gelding would be that sweet, but my horse is a great guy tho. I hope they will get along well. I am not worried about the colt giving a hard time, but rather my horse was the boss in the herd of 4. I think the colt will give in to mine being the leader, and hopefully all will go well. Not sure when and if he will be gelded, so will have to see. Any advice, I'm always glad to get it, from someone who has done, what I am hoping to do-have my horse with me! Thankyou!
