Dad plans on renting out stalls on the house we are renting. And he is insisting that in the area that the house is located(Catlin-I think that's how its spelled- VA) we can get $500 a month for self care.
Now, the property is 20 acres and mostly wooded(maybe half is actually pasture, its all fenced), the trails are really trashy right now, and need cleaned up. There is NO arena, NO roundpen, and NO small turn outs.
The barn is 6 stalls with a heated tack room and a wash stall.
From what I have read about boarding fees in the area $300 is average for self care. And those facilities ALL have an arena, rounpen, trails, and some even have xc courses.
How he expects $500, I don't know.
I guess this is kinda a rant... Any thaughts?
