Our place is WAAAY too small...6 acres, 5 horses, 2 box stalls, 2 standing stalls (though obviously the horses don't live in them), maybe 3 acres of permanent pasture...yeah, our horses live mostly on hay. Most of the 6 acres is fields, though I hope to convert one of them (about an acre in size) into a permanent pasture come spring. Other times, we run an electric rope around about 1.5-2 acres around the pond and the horses go out there in the summer (in daytime, when we can watch them). No arenas (as if we have the space) but miles and miles and miles of property surrounding us that we can ride on, including a big 50+ acre flat field that's great for galloping right next to our property. Ah, the joys of friendly neighbours. The horse:land ratio irritates me, but since I don't pay the bills and only one of the horses is technically mine, I can't do anything about it.
