Need to share my excitement :)

Since my mare died and I had to sell my gelding, I have been horseless for a year and a half. I've just recently moved away for college (equine science major), and finally have been able to start looking at horses. I found one, and now I've found my barn!

It's a small barn. Only 10 stalls + around 10 pasture-only horses. But the stalls are ginormous! They are all 12x14 with windows and are all heated. Rubber mats and dutch doors. The pastures are well-kept and decent-sized. Free-choice roundbales in all pastures. The indoor...you guys. The indoor. It's 90 x 300. Guys. I about had a heart attack. And she waters and drags it daily. And it's all set back in some really pretty hills/bluffs. I'm so freaking excited to get him there next week.

Just had to share my excitement. Lol

I'll try to post some pictures when I get him moved in. :) I'm going to UW-River Falls. They have the best undergrad agriculture program in the state.

Super happy for you! Nothing beats having both horses and a great barn to board at. Can't wait to see photos!

Oooh, you're living my dream! I'd always planned in going to UW River Falls and boarding a horse nearby but it just didn't work out. Have fun!

I'll take some actual pictures of everything tomorrow morning and post them for you guys. But just to hold you over, here's the barn. It's only 5 stalls and a wash rack. If you go through the big door on the end, that leads to the unheated barn which has another big door that leads to the turnout paddocks. Will post lots of pictures tomorrow!

ETA: My guy is in the back on the left. :)
