    A nice big property, atleast 100 acres with lots of pasture and hay. Someone to make the hay would be nice also! Lol
    A 50 stall barn so I could have any horse I fancy and a half a dozen that I don't.
    An indoor and outdoor ring with proper footing for all weather riding...then again, if I had all those trails, I doubt I would be ring riding!
    A really amazing trailer/truck combo with LQ and room for atleast 4 horses.
    A babysitter and trainer for my kids. I think 3 is the perfect age to start a riding career!

    Hmmmm, I'm going to keep this somewhat in the realm of reason.

    1.) The 5 acres next to us that we have an agreement to buy; bought, cleared, seeded and fenced.

    2.) Water and power run to the barn;a wash stall and finished tack room.

    3.) Run in shed in the other field.

    4.) New rig - 3/4 ton crew cab diesel with three horse slant load with dressing room

    5.) Unlimited tack budget.

    I would buy at least 100 acres of rolling hills, lush green fenced in pasture.
    I would build an awesome 10 stall barn with a tackroom, feedroom, and washrack.
    I would get the perfect horse trailer with living quarters.
    I would buy Neela, a horse I've been wanting for forever.
    Then I would use the rest to live on, and spoil my horses.

    1- I'd buy out the neighbors to our left and right and expand our pastures.
    2- build a larger barn with WAY more hay storage available
    3 - trailer
    4 & 5 -- tuck plenty of $$$$ into a horse fund for later when things came up, lol.

    I'll make two lists, realistic and "never going to happen unless I win the lottery".

    Realistic (as in this may *hopefully* happen someday)
    1. 10-15 acre horse property next to a park or trail system. Complete with a small barn, several pastures w/ run ins, a decent sized sacrifice area, and good fencing
    2. Indoor arena so I can ride throughout the crappy winters up here. With mirrors of course
    3. Riding lessons. I really care which discipline (although I would prefer dressage). I would just love to have someone help me become a better rider instead of having to try and figure it all out myself.
    4. Truck/Trailer
    5. Custom made tack for Soda

    Never going to happen unless I win the lottery:
    1. 1000 acre ranch: I would leave most of it "wild" but part of it would be converted to a retirement home for old horses. I think I'd like it in MN.
    2. Custom made tack for all of my horses
    3. 3-5 Personal riding horses, several different breeds/colors. I'd go back to my childhood pretend stable and find a couple of those horses in the real world.
    4. Unlimited dressage and jumper lessons from a top notch trainer
    5. At least 2 nice barns (one for the retirees and another for riding horses), pastures w/ good fencing and run ins, 2 outdoor arenas, 1 indoor arena, and adequate sacrifice areas on my property.

    If money was no object, hmm well,
    1. Trailer course and test and a trailer and towing vehicle.
    2. Fix my Dressage Saddle, I miss it.
    3. The services of a very nice Stallion for my Mare.
    4. Decent new Arena surface.
    5. Lovely huge open barn stables.

    ... now where is my Lottery Ticket?? Lol

    A nice barn with a loft, stalls, tack room and all the trimmings-doesn't have to be a huge barn, just enough for my girl and some extra stalls. Oh and of course it has to have power and water hookup. LOL

    A nice 4wd truck and trailer.

    Ooh, easy! Good thread.
    1. A decent sized property with two houses (one for me & bf, one for my parents... haha) Perhaps a 3rd small house for my grandparents (more help around the farm! Plus they're already looking for a new house).
    2. A barn, 5-or-so stalls. With tack room, feed room, etc.
    3. An arena, preferably covered. Maybe two arenas - one covered, one not.
    4. A few horses. And all the equiptment, etc. involved.
    5. A truck and trailer.

    Now to win the lottery!

    1. Tango, the best small bay TB ever :)
    2. As many acres as possible with trails, large outdoor and indoor rings, barn, hot/cold wash stall, etc. in the middle of nowhere
    3. To be a great tack maker, and never pay for tack again!
    4. A truck and trailer with living quarters
    5. An unlimited tab on Ebay for anything I forgot...

    Third, I would probably buy a mechanical cow or a flag. I am currently using a friend as a cow, but she's tired of being chased around by al my horses.

    That would be on your friend's list too. Lol
