Hmm. I don't have my horses at my house since I live kind of in town but I do keep them at my Nana's (Grandma >>) place which is only 15 minutes away. I spend most of my summer there and most of my day's after school there. Sometimes I'll spend the weekends/weekdays there and help out a lot more.
I'm not sure how big the farm is but I would say 20-ish acres? Maybe a little less.
The barn is quite old and has 9 stalls on the bottom with a chicken coop and a little..stall area? for the goats/pigs/alpaca. There is also a lean-to looking thing up against the barn for our pony since we don't have enough room for her in the barn.
We actually have two pastures but we have split them into three and there is also a "Mini pasture" out in the lawn since one of our horses doesn't get along with anybody.. She sure does mow that grass though :)
The 3 guys go out in the back pasture where the ring is. Our 4 year old palomino goes out in the other smaller pasture between the back and front. And the "senior citizens" go out in the front pasture. They also have a lean-to. Our donkey USED to go out in the front pasture but he was picking on our 27 year old paint.(he was stepping on her and all sorts of things) Our 5 yr old buckskin goes out in the mini pasture and our 13 year old haflinger goes out in her little place since she can't have a lot of grass. And the donkey goes out in our Small corral.
Our routine is we get up around 7-9.
Get everybody's grain ready.
Put a little shavings in the stalls. (We usually don't pick out the stalls that often)
Once they're done eating we check everybody and then put them out in their own pastures.
If we DO decide to ride we keep everybody in because our Ring is actually inside of the biggest pasture.
So then we groom the ones we want to ride and go out to ride for a couple hours. Then we might go on a trail ride out back.
Then we wash them down and then put everybody outside for the day.
At night we put everybody in and feed/hay.
It's also fun getting eggs out of the chicken coop or chasing away the mean chickens >> (They like the pick fights with me and my younger cousins)
We would LOVE to get an indoor arena but we don't have enough money(yet?!) and I can't think of a place to put it..
As far as travelling goes I myself can travel as I may (which I don't do a lot. I hate being away from my horse!) But if my Nana ever decided she wanted to go somewhere she definitely has lots of people to take care of the farm.
Right now we don't give lessons or anything since it's all family oriented. (Myself, my cousins and my brother were all taught to ride by my Nana/Family members. No lesson fees needed :) )
That being said I (and I think my Nana does too) want to open up to giving some lessons to people. We plan on naming the farm "Hemlock Havens". (Hemlock is the road it's on)
sorry this post was so long! I liked reading everybody else's stories about their farms. I can definitely relate!!
