Rockford,IL. boarding

Is there a market for a private self boarding facility? What I am asking is I have a small farm in rural Rockford area that has 4 pastures approx 4.6 acres total, and a cement block building with 4 stalls, new electric, water. This is on my personal residence where I live. This would be perfect for the avid horse lover that has more than one horse and doesn't own thier own property....any input would be great

Hi, I'm about 30 min from you in Harvard, and I would say that there is definitely a market for your facilities. With Rock Cut, Deer Run, and Oak Ridge near by (plus others), you are in a great area for horse people. I wish you were closer to me, it sounds like a good set up!

I tried this route with one boarder, paid me a flat fee for the pasture and all I suppled was water. Next thing I knew hay wasn't coming in. Boarder kept askiing to borrow feed. No. At one point I threatened to call the SPCA because her horse was grubbing for grass roots for something to eat. Then the board started arriving late so I gave her notice. Have a good contract. Include in it that alternate arrangements must be made to feed and water the horse in case of illness, etc. If you wish to be available to do that, charge a fee, say $10 per feeding. If you don't, you'll be the one looking after the horse, not the owner. Include a $10 per day late fee on the board and an automatic notice to vacate after 30 days or horse will be sold at auction. You have to stand your ground or you will wind up with costly regrets.
