    You're welcome! Sounds like your neighbor is a gem, and a good situation for your horse! Neat story about having fun with the little colt playing with your jacket!
    I'm unsure if you are going live on the 7 acres across from your neighbor, or will be living 2 1/2 hrs north of your neighbor? Anyway.....
    To answer your question - I have one horse, and she's a 20 yr. Old registered QH (people are surprised to hear she's 20, as she doesn't look it!). I mentioned in a previous post that the only reason why I have her here at home as a single horse is because I have the time to spend with her/care/feed/ride/etc. as I have a small business out of my home. Even then, I really, carefully weighed the pros and cons, talked to some seasoned horse owners, and after taking all into consideration it was the perfect situation for us. She is a seasoned mare, and noted for being well adapted to boot. Those things considered was the only reason I have her by herself. I can be with her all the time, (practically - one does have to run errands, keep appts., etc. even in the wilderness!) But it's proven to be wonderful for us!!! I love it, and she's happy and healthy, and that's what matters most!
    Hope all goes well with your plans, and by the way, Crystal Falls, MI is one of the most lovely spots on the planet! :)

    We have our house for sale where we live, and when we move, it will be 2 1/2 hrs up north. We will live in our cottage, but our land is 9 miles away, with the place I will be boarding, across the road from the land. The plan is to someday build a small home there(hopefully sooner) and rent out the cottage for extra income. Your mare sounds real special! My gelding is 18. He spent over half his life teaching kids how to ride, taken them on trails, and did day camps for kids. He had been in parades, and used as a 4-h horse. Now he is mine, still stays boarded there, and is semi retired. He will be taking kids out trick or treating on the trails, with buckets of candy hanging off the branches! He does that every year!

    Lol that is so funny to me because I was so excited to get my horse off my friends land and into a barn. I think I may have just gotten extremely lucky and found an awesome barn. But congrats to you on the new house! And I agree we need lots of pretty pictures!
