SOON we will have our own place - bank owned 13 acres with 9 stall barn w/wash rack. Approx. 100 x 170 arena once I get it cleaned up and tilled.
Obviously the property need some TLC. Being horse owners and boarders ourselves, we feel pretty good about what is needed.
We would like to get a few boarders right away. We plan to fix fencing on 2 or 3 turnouts ASAP. Original prop had 4 board fence throughout (6 turnouts). Close to 50% of that is falling. We will probably replace back fences with no-climb or 4 wire.
Would seeing a property that needs repairs scare you away? Unfortunately we are not in a position to drop big $$ to fix it all at once. It will be a slow, self working process.
It will get fixed up.
Thinking of full care (stall, turnout, bedding, hay) for $250 to $300.
