Hi, so I don't have a horse yet, but really want one soonish. Anyways about 5 mins away from where I live, my grandma has about 160 acres. Most of it is trees and forest though. I was wondering if and how it is possible to clear a spot to house a couple horses? Cutting away the trees would leave stumps, some big, some small. How would you get rid of these so that the land is safe? Also my uncle is wanting to buy a bobcat soon, so we have that to level out the land with also. Im just not sure about what you hve to do to get land ready for a horse. Im a total newbie!
Also for two horses, is 1-1/5.5 acres enough? How much would be needed?
Also, what would the cost of feeding be? They will be in the pasture all the time, except for winters, we get crazy winters up here sometimes. So I know a lot or hay will be needed then.
