I would love to afford to move to a place where I can have my own horse
But for now I live in town and If I get a horse I would have to board him or her

We started to look at property in September...I had this dream of putting up a nice barn and keeping a couple horses, along with boarding a few. Hubby was ready to build me an indoor, etc. Then we had our current house appraised before listing it.... Never moving now. Oh well, I do love the barn I'm at.

I have a small 52 acre farm in the Missouri Ozarks. We just had a bulldozer clear out our fence row and a few extra acres. Hopefully new fence will be going up before too much longer. The view is gorgeous and the weather this winter has been wonderful. We do have a hay field and have grown our own off and on. I hope once the new fence is up we can grow it again. If I didn't have my own land, I would not be able to have a small herd of ponies.

Ah! What is that I don't see from your back yard? Why it's houses! NO houses!

I'll bet you live on a "Deliverance Road" that is scarier than mine to strangers. I've had people call me half way up my road, to say the road looked far too scary and was I sure they'd made the correct turn at the bottom

What a beautiful view to take in every moment of every day

We do live out in the sticks, but wouldn't have it any other way. Our dirt/rock road is so rough that we don't get much traffic. It is very peaceful out here. This was a few weeks ago riding my Icelandic down the road heading home.

I love your rode Toni. I actually live beyond the state maintained road as well. We have a gravel road that turns into a dirt road. The dirt part get's really bad but check out my driveway in the summer!

I've also included photo's of "my" river. We don't actually own the dock. It's on the other side of a corn field that backs up to our house. We made a deal with the local farmer that he runs his dogs through our land and we get to fish!

Do you see that sneaky snake???

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Are you close to Mansfield MO? Where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived
Their farm was Rocky Ridge Farm

Yes, I am just south of Mansfield. I have rode the dirt roads from my house to Mansfield and only have to cross the pavement one time.
