Husband and I are planning the expansion of our farm over the next few years. We are in the process of purchasing 17 acres directly next to our 10 acres. We are thinking of dividing the 17 acres into 8, 2 acre paddocks with pipe and no climb wire with a 2, 12x12 stall lean-to with a private 4x12 tackroom in each paddock. The roof would extend out the side to cover a round bale and there would be 2 horses in each paddock. The horses would be put in their stall every night (or left out and in during bad weather only). Feed twice a day. Trailer parking, blanketing and supplements fed included.
Boarders would have access to a 250x160 lighted outdoor sand arena (were in north Texas) with jumps. 50 ft indoor round pen and a 70' outdoor round pen. Nice bathroom.
We are thinking of charging $425 for these paddocks. Is this reasonable? What would you change? What if we had a covered arena?
