Ok, this might take some math.. haha, If you won the lottery, and won 1 Million $.. what would you spend it on? It can be anything, but give details! Like, if you say you'd buy a horse, what breed of horse, why, etc.

Nope, I would finish clearing my land, (about 500k) and put 250k in savings. The other $250,000, I would buy more goats, and spend money on getting Savannah and Zeph trained up. We'd also put Storm in a place where he could gain some weight... AND I'D BUY EVERYTHING PRINCE PHILLIP WOULD EVERY WANT. Lmao.. the end.

I'd pay my studies, maybe take a nice trip somewhere or have some investments. Then I'd save rest for living and rainy day.

Pay off my house and vehicles and put most of the rest away.

Get a horse (since I don't have one).
Probably a WB, because I love them and love jumping.
Amazing lessons.
And everything a horse needs :) .
Some new clothes for me and a nice present for my family and best friend :P.
A nice Vacation (which I really need).
And save up the rest.

First and foremost I would pay all my moms medical bills I have no way of knowing what the end result will be but I'm sure at least 250k.
Another 150k set aside to pay for any ongoing care she may need and to get her a decent house to live in.
As for myself I'd buy 12 acres the guy I rent pasture from really wants to sell me, finish fencing it off, put up a nice barn and corral, well, septic, clearing and a cellar for around 50k ( yes where I live it can be done for that)
250k put back for retirement I would still continue to work...
The rest would be for the log cabin I want to build, a truck, trailer and 4 new horses.
2 Paints and 2 QHs
If anything left we would take a vacation and go shopping

A million bucks isn't much these days. Not enough to be too posh anyway. I guess I would....
1. New kitchen remodel
2. Add a 2nd bathroom
3. Put pipe fence up all the way around my pasture and dry lot, then pay someone else to paint it.
4. Put the rest into something that will make more money.

Oh... I would definitely buy me and the hubby a farm and build us a house. That would wipe out the 1 million knowing how much land he wants (100 acres) and the kind of house that we want to build.

Other than that, I would buy a 3 year old QH Western Pleasure horse. Something that I could put in the futurities and then work on teaching the all around classes.

We'd be moving to Kentucky like we want to! :) Nice place not too far from Lexington with lots of room for our horses :) Pay off bills, buy a buckskin son of Alvadars Double Destiny (mini horse) with big show wins already on him (not sure WHO it would be, just would be a World Champion or something buckskin son hehe), maybe a couple Fell mares. But the place in Ky is the important thing :)

Buy a HUGE horse stable with, a 60 stall barn, raceing track, hot walker, ALOT or trails, a jumping arena indoor and out door, dressage arena indoor and out door, gykhana arena indoor and outdoor. And a pool.
Buy 45 horses
And everything I want for my horse and need!
