1.) There's a 793 acre property about a mile from me that's up for sale. If I had $4,000,000.00 (yes, 4 MILLION) lying around, I'd buy it.
It has one 'main' house with all the amenities, and several that need some work, but could be guest houses.
It's all fenced in woven wire, has a huge quonset hut for hay storage, multiple barns, and all the tractors, balers, and other toys you need for an acreage that large.
I'd turn the property into a riding vacation spot. There's a lot of open pasture land, as well as wooded areas. It would make a fine place for people to bring their horses and ride.
2.) A humongous new truck and trailer. Trailer would have LQ, so the horses and I could travel and stay in style.
3.) All brand name, custom made, new leather tack. I'd like some English CCs, as well as a few Tucker Endurance/Plantation saddles with English rigging.
4.) I'd go searching for that perfect black & white pinto I've always wanted. Since money is no object, I could buy whatever struck my fancy, regardless of the price.
5.) On my 793 acre place, I'd have several indoor arenas and covered arenas put up, as well as a hot walker, and therapy pool for the horses.
Yes, it's nice to dream, but I'm grateful for my little 5 acre farmette, 12 y/o truck, 35 y/o horse trailer, and my barn made from a converted garage. I'm luckier than a lot of people, and know it.
