So yesterday, my mom told me that when she retires(in two years), that we're moving to Missouri >.>
From what I've heard, it's FLAT, and that the winters are terrible.
My problems there:
I'd get so bored not going on trails, or running up hills, so would my mare. (Anyone want to argue on it being flat?)
My mare hardly gets a winter coat! (I do ,however, have a heavy blanket, liners, etc)
My mare would be alone.
I told my mom that that isn't so great for a horse, and mentioned getting an alpaca, pony, mini, old retired horse. She wasn't so cool with that.
I'd be 18, so of course I could stay here, but rent and insurance for a car, plus board, and food for myself wouldn't work out.
I'm also in a relationship (and yeah I know it could change in two years, but this made me so upset!)
I don't do long distance.
^ just wanted to complain(;
Onto property and barns:
We're going out this summer to look at the land for sale out there.
They all have barns already there
What should I look for?
I don't want a barn with electric, or a hay loft. That's how our neighbor's barn burned.
What about fencing? I'd LOVE a wooden fence with a hot wire on the top.
Is that the best/safest?
Obviously this is all far away from now, but I really want to figure out what to do.
I'm just not so sure that I want to leave everything that I have now.
Sorry for the poorly written, all over the place thread. I hope it makes sense! Thanks for reading it(:
