I have sand. You're correct in that the property drains well.
However, when you have horses out on it they will
turn it it a nasty, muddy mess.
My front paddock is pretty much a dry lot at this point, because the horses have churned it up with their feet, and eaten any grass down to nubs.
Which is why the horses will be rotated through my pastures, once the fencing is finally finished. I'll have 4 pastures, and the horses will be rotated every 2 days.
Just because you have sand doesn't mean a horse can't turn a place muddy. Especially such a small acreage.
