Well it rained Friday, and it's kinda raining today, so if there isn't good drainage we'll know.
Considering those are large horses (ie not ponies) i'm hoping the stalls are big enough to turn around.
Shelter when they're turned out would be their stalls, i'll just leave the doors open.
From the looks of the pictures, the paddock seems to be dirt, but i'll definitely check to see if it's sand or not.
We'll have to ask where they dump the manure. I was thinking about that last night.
With almost 5 acres, i'm sure they have a place.
From the ad and the aerial view, i don't see another building. I'll definitely see if they have another shed to store everything. I do believe they have a room next to the last stall to store stuff, but I have no idea how big/small it is.
From what i've seen, only one place that's fenced off. But it won't stop me from doing stuff outside the paddock :) I'm sure we'll be able to work something out though
The fence looks wooden. I'll definitely make sure it's in good condition. Not sure if we'll be allowed to change the fencing if we're just renting, but if we do buy the place down the road, i would want to change the wood fence.
I can tell ya one thing. If i have to carry 4 water buckets from the house to the barn, i'll die
The ad does say the barn has running water, so i just hope its right there and not like 100ft from the barn.
Tom and I are going there today around 5 (the owners aren't morning people) and we're going to check everything out. If everything checks out (which we are hoping it all does) we'll ask to lease it for 1-2 years with an option to buy. I don't want to get my hopes up if the place doesnt work out, but i just have this feeling that it will.
