My boyfriend and I are looking at buying a house. It sits on approximately 1.5 acres of land and has a pretty large run-in type barn that looks like it was used for cattle. I own one horse, and would love to have him at home if possible. Is it possible to successfully keep a horse happy on such a small peice of land? Obviously he would need more hay as he would have access to less grass. We would also get him a buddy of some kind. Probably a mini for my son.
ETA: I board him right now, so he can stay at the barn if we can't make it work with him home.
