Our New Place

Will be signing lease papers on a 3 1/2 acre farm with a house, 5 stall barn, outdoor ring and lots of turnouts. Can't wait to lookout the back window and see the horses. Finally my girls wont have to ask me to take them to the barn

For crying out loud. Why do you post a thread like this and NOT provide pictures??? Just joking, lol.

But pictures would be lovely.

Congratulations! This must be very exciting for you!

We did something similar 2 years ago. We went from a boarding situation in one state to a mini farm (4.8 acres) and 4 stall barn in a totally different part of the country.

We were lucky that the entire property had perimeter fencing and the back 2.5 horse pasture acres were fenced in separating it from the house itself. We did put up some electric fencing allowing us to further divide up that back acreage as needed.

All the reading and advice you get doesn't totally prepare you for the changes in your horse relationship and what it entails having your horse at home.

I remember my first trainer telling me that there is nothing like seeing your horse in your backyard and she was so right. On top of that, we have learned a lot.

Enjoy your new place!

Pics will come when we move in sorry. This whole thing came about and deal done in literally 24hrs. We are very fortunate to find this opportunity. My 11 and 9 yr old daughters are very very excited to have their horses home. I'm excited to have my chickens back Oh the fresh eggs. Plus plenty of room for a big garden next year

How absolutely wonderful! When I got my first horse as a teen-ager, we had enough land that the horse was delivered right to my house! We were on a busy paved road so I learned a lot real quick! Can't wait to see pictures!
