I was actually thinking about this today!!!
I would want a large ranch on the outskirts of town so I could still be close to some civilization. It would have a huge indoor arena and, of course, an outdoor arena. Acres of grassy pastures!!! A big pond, and access to miles upon miles of wooded trails! It wouldn't be far off from the ocean either though, so I could trailer over there for a nice ride on the beach!!! Two - Three 12 stall barns. Every barn would have two heated wash racks, hay storage area, and heated waters. Each stall would have it's own paddock with the option to close off the paddock. A medium sized, country style, house --doesn't need to be huge. It would also have a small guest cottage and apartments above the barns for me helpers. I would have some fruit trees, dogwoods, and vegetable gardens! I would want to have some boarders so there were some friendly people around to socialize with. I would also want to work on training horses.
I would have a handful of rockin' ranch working, bulldog type, QH's --At least one buckskin, palamino, and paint. They would be my (and my hired wrangler's) mounts for working my medium size herd of cattle black and red angus cattle.
My fantasy horses I would own would be (in this order):
-A BEAUTIFUL Black Fresian, with a long thick mane and tail, that I could ride at liberty and gallop along the fields and the beach like you see in the movies. haha
- A miniature horse that was house / car trained like a dog!
- An Icelandic pony. Chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail. They are so small and hardy, I'd love to just hop on one bareback and cruise around my property checking up on everything.
- Rocky Mountain Horse- I just like their coloration.
I'd have a Large Breed dog (St. Bernard, Anatolian Shepherd, or Great Dane) along with a border collie. A DONKEY
would be a MUST
. Along with some goats and chickens.
I'm not huge into competing, but I have dreamed of competing in reining, cutting, trail competitions, or possibly
Ahhhhh... Good thread topic!
