I don't mind helping out, BUT the facility I built was $100k plus. I built it for my somewhat learning disabled daughter, thinking she needed something to keep her occupied.
Well, there is the old saying every pot has a lid! My 22 y.o. daughter met a young man on a trail ride. It was the first boy she kissed, and she went home with him that night and "moved in"! I was concerned, but the young man was very similar to my daughter in many ways, and they both love horses. I was the "unapproving father", I didn't see her for 5 months. My wife would see them briefly each week just to be sure our daughter wasn't being abused. She was on birth control pills for menstrual issues, but apparently she wasn't completely compliant with them.
They got married at a JP, and I am going to be a Grandfather in April 2014. It is what it is! I was concerned about her being alone, and the young man dotes on her. I am accepting of the situation.
The horse barn was built for my daughter, who was to maintain it. I bought them a home near his work (45 miles away), and they will rent it from us. I suppose I could have had them live locally, but was afraid that my daughter would be around the house all the time and my wife would be raising the baby.
I would rather take care of a few horses! I'll get used to it! I'll get a bit of exercise to boot! I thought I would include a picture of the facility. I put up the fence, and did the stall stuff inside the barn.
