My landlord was out fixing doors at our house yesterday. We live on a little over an acre. I nonchalantly brought up fencing a portion of our property, putting up a walk-in shelter and moving my horse here. He said, Sure I don't care. He said that if I did it would mean he could charge more rent for the next tenants. BUT he has to look over the deed and make sure that doesn't say anything about not having horses or livestock on it. I'm not sure if it will. The farmer who sold the lots has livestock. So (a big possible) YIPEE!
We were/are trying to buy a house but we still have some credit issues to work out. So it might take another year (or more). I'm personally starting to dislike where I'm keeping my horse at for various reasons.
So here are my questions:
If I feed hay and grain how much of my property would I have to fence in for 2 horses? I can't fence the whole acre in because the kids need space and we have a dog that has to be chained (when she goes out) or she'll run off.
I need fence recommendations:
Not costly (Because the fence stays behind once we move)
Durable (We live close to a road. I need something I KNOW will keep the horses in)
Semi-Attractive (Landlord's stipulation)
(If you can understand my color coding)
