New Brunswick?

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I think Born to Run is right - the land prices would be more reasonable on the east coast rather than in BC if you stay away from the major centres; it would be a milder climate than Sask but not as mild as the west coast; the down side would be that the cost of living is likely higher especially when horses are concerned and I think the job market is more limited. So, stay in good old Sask a few more years, save up your pennies and become financially independent then you're ready for your move.

Where is the land cheap enough to buy enough space for 3 or 4 horses, that has work near by, and actually has some weather you can ride in!
Sask! Lol

Koolio, try Chick's or Jeffers. I've ordered from both and the shipping rate is better. If you find what you want, order a bunch of their dewormers as their Ivermectin is only about $2.29 tube instead of $20. Horseloverz is full of bull regarding this government agreement. C and J will charge more reasonable shipping then the post office will charge $8 to collect the tax. Sometimes if it's under a $100 customs will push it thro without asking for the tax, therefore no postal fee either.

Apart from the weather part it's ideal. New Brunswick was looking good, until I realized that it is so French, not sure I'd settle in so well.

Anyone here from Nova Scotia?

I don't know what you mean about 7 months of freezing...

Alberta here as well. I agree with knowing what it feels like to freeze for 7 months out of the year. That's why this year Im investing in good winter boots.

Looking at my penny collection I reckon I could afford to buy a lock up in Alberta, may struggle with a house, and land could be a problem

Nova Scotia - look at this
