Susan's Dream Barn

I would have a TON of property, I would like a dirt Indoor and Outdoor arena, a meadow, easy access to a big trail area and a bridle path. The Barn would have 12 X 12 foot stall area with a option to go into an outdoor stall as well. There would be a small locker by each stall for individual use as well as a feed room and public Tack room...And of course it would have horses everywhere!!!

1000+ acres. Mostly flat rich green lush grazing land, but some really good tree hilled parts. Underground Spring fed spring. Indoor and outdoor arenas. Stables.

Tennis court, big house, with indoor, inground swimming pool.

I would have my own horse stud...connemara I think. And I would be filthy rich hahahahaha :roll:

I would have to say a 22 horse indoor arena with about 400 acres. The arena would have to be 120 x 200 and there would be dividers on the sides of the arena so the horses would not be able to see into the arena. I would have my boyfriend in the barn with his horse shoing and of course I would give lessons as I do knoe. There would be full time 24/7 care and the barn would be beautiful. I also would want to more seperate barns that would include a mare motel with 12x12 foalin stalls and a stud barn. The pastures would be setup so that all horses could be out and no one would go threw the fence. Id atleast have 200 additional acres for hay and oats.

We have already decided IF we won the lottery (a really big one) :

That we would attempt to buy all the land, surrounding us, for at least 2 square miles. At this time it is pretty much all owned by 3 families and the majority of it is fenced pasture land, or planted in wheat.

We would continue to live in the house we are presently in, but add onto it, with at least one more bedroom and a full ADA bathroom, enclosed screened patio off our bedroom, and a screened patio at the front door. We would also add on a two car garage with a canning kitchen on one end, and an attached greenhouse.

We already have the blueprints for the barn that we want. It will have two stalls on the north and south sides both, with an 11' walkway in the middle that will have access to each stall, the feed/tack room, and it will have a wash bay also. Each stall will have a separate fenced run/paddock but also have access to the full pasture when needed/wanted.

We want to use some of that pasture land (neighbors) to build a hunting preserve for the purpose of hunting pheasant, quail, turkey, and deer. (also a few coyote and bobcats) the land is already prime for that with crops planted in some areas but we would swap out some of the wheat for corn, milo, soybeans, etc. those crops would attract even more game than is already there.

Once we had the game preserve started, we would bribe our daughter and son-in-law to move home, from mississippi, to run the hunting aspect of it. They are perfect for it. All he thinks/dreams/talks about is hunting and guns, and she is usually right there beside him, although not as obsessed as him.
I'm sure we would find a job for the other three daughters, although none of them are interested in hunting. :roll: maybe something in the public relations area......

I'll try to keep it short hehe. I would have 2830 acres of land by the Blackfoot with all types of land on it, lush fields of grass, mountainous terrain, river, lake, forest, etc.

I have seen this property that I want before, it is terrific I got no idea if it's still for sell though... I would have a ranch house (probably 2 bedrooms... maybe 3) and some small cabins. The cabins would be for the hired cowboys and the ranch house for me and my boyfriend but not a fancy house because he is a rugged cowboy, not the fancy type at all haha probably why we get along... anyway back to the topic lol.

I am soo easily sidetracked :roll: I would have hundreds of head of free-range cattle and many work horses for roping, cutting etc. I would have the well house heated for winter and kenels for my hunting dogs. And maybe a small barn for sick horses. Plus probably a smoke house and a big garage with freezers for the meat from our hunting, trapping, and to keep the firewood in..Probably the 30 acres closest to the house would be fenced for the horses.

Sounds so nice to think about *sigh*

My dream barn/life....
Lets see,,,,300 acres with lots of lush green grass and trees, of course some trails and streams and a jumping area and a large barn (that was white w/a green roof ) with an indoor arena and not too far away would be the covered outdoor arena and a round pen. My house would be connected to the barn and I would have lots of Friesians and Friesian Crosses Of course I would breed them, I would also board horses and give lessons. Oh, the power of dreams...
(I think I just got an idea for a story )
