So we saw the house. Not exactly how the pictures were.
The Cons:
The pictures failed to capture the small kitchen, the small 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. The tiny bathrooms, Master bath wasn't too bad, just no his/her sinks and no tub. The horse paddock had an incline. There is no fenced riding arena. There is a large section of flat grass area that I don't mind riding/working Vega in.
There's no basement (something Tom wanted, I had no preference)
The fence was old and a few boards were down.

The Pros:
The master was kinda large. 2 fireplaces (one downstairs, 1 upstairs)
Above ground pool. Privacy from neighbors and road. The downstairs was quite spacious. High ceilings. While the deck was small it was nice. Hardwoord floors upstairs, except in the kitchen (tile) I believe the downstairs was hardwood as well, don't remember really.
2 car garage with enough room to have 2 cars in it plus room to work in the back of the garage.
Wonderful views from the windows (although I can't see the horses from the kitchen window :()

When we left, we told the realtor that we'd want to rent it. Got into the car, whole different story :roll: But after a long debate and me calling Tom some choice names We've decided to......

For 1 year, with the option to renew or buy.
I'm so super excited! Like I don't know how to explain it!
I'm going to be able to walk out the back door (really the side cause there is no back door) and see Gem and Vega I can just imagine how much training i'm going to be able to do with her, and how awesome it will be. Not to mention I could ride to some trails! And our neighbors have some wood fencing up, so i'm hoping they own horses as well!
Either way I'm super excited! We're going to meet with the realtor tomorrow to discuss some more stuff.

Just kidding... kinda..
Hey, if you didn't snap me back into reality, I woulda been extremely bummed, possibly crying when Tom said he didn't like the place. But when he was saying that, I thought of what you said and it really helped me coping with what Tom was saying.

The bedrooms are kinda small, but livable.. you could always come down for a vacation! :)

Aww thanks Pop and JDI!

Yay a party!

Our projected move in date is June 1st. Gives us enough time to get our stuff together, as well as the 30 day notice to the barn that we're moving!

I think i'm going to start packing when I get home

I'm so happy for you Appy! So when do you get to move in?
You mentioned the fence is in disrepair. Just a suggestion, but you could put up tube panels. I'm sure you have seen some of my photos but part of our area is panels. That way if at the end of the year you decide not to stay you can take the panels with you. Like these
I love them because I can reconfigure how they are set up very easily.
Either that or see if the owners will reduce your rent by the cost of fixing the existing fence.
