My mom was wondering, how much are the taxes?

Depends, for 15 acres, house, 2 barns, 5 horses, 4 goats, flock of chickens and assorted other critters, our yearly taxes run around $400. BUT we are in a rural non-touristy area. I don't know what Hannibal is like with taxes, but it is a tourist attraction.

hey there. change is always makes you feel unsettled. I am from Missouri too more south of where you are talking about. Flat is more a description I would use for Kansas. I was extremely thrilled to find a 20 acre ranch that is primarily flat...tough to find around if it is hills you want..piece of cake. as far as the western/english discipline. there is a ton of people who ride in both disciplines. The weather in winter occasionally gets dicey but it never lasts long as someone above pointed out. and not wanting a barn with that I have to disagree. I understand the fear of fire..oh too well. However, fans, lights, radio for the horses...wouldn't want live w/o it! trust me it will all be ok..look how fast you met several people already from MO...all of us =))

Horsepower: the extraordinary capacity of a horse to elevate the human spirit!

My castle is my barn ;)

I am a native of Oklahoma, but have lived in Missouri 25 years. I am also south of Springfield which is an hours drive from where I live. Missouri for the most part is not flat. Missouri has the Ozark Mountains and in the foot hills of the Boston Mountains of NW Arkansas. These mountain ranges are not of the scope of the Rocky Mountains, but nonetheless certainly not flatlands. There are lots of equestrian trails in some of the Conservation areas and logging roads. There is at Emineince,MO one of the "hot spots" for camping and horse trails. It is a very popular place for many,many horse campers and trail riders. There is a wide range of disciplines for the horseperson. For the Dresssage set there is the Ozark Dressage Society(ODS).

As others have said the Winter weather has many varibles also. The deepest snows have only been about or just under 2 feet deep and never last more than a few days. Some Winters we have no snow or ice at all like this past Winter. The Summers can get hot and humid, but not unbearable.

Hannibal,MO is the birthplace of Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemmens who wrote "Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn". It is on the Mississippi River.
