Barn in Spring

“It’s so very peaceful”
“How did you ever find this?”
“It’s so beautiful here”
“This is paradise”

These phrases and many more have been used to describe our home and farm.  

Ten years ago we had come across an operating horse farm that was in desperate need of attention and going downhill quickly. Although we knew little about horses we were immediately attracted to the idea of being surrounded by horses.

Unfortunately consensus could not be found on that piece if property so we began looking for another as the (horse) bug had bitten!

The perfect place appeared almost instantly only three miles from the first property and soon we were the proud owners of ten acres of potential horse ranching land close to great schools, in a fast growing area to supply us with business, and great opportunity for increased land value.

So we got to work!

Clearing the land

Fast forward to today. We have a beautiful horse farm with a 14 stall barn, small stocked lake and more.

It wasn’t easy to get here.  We had to clear most of the property, build the 12 stall barn (36X84 feet), add 4 more stalls as needed, shavings storage, tack room, and wash rack.  The riding ring and round pen had to be leveled, fenced and graveled.  There were paddocks to be fenced, and all the pastures to be seeded, irrigated and fenced. Did I mention the two acre stocked lake or the year round creek?

Grounds and barn

It is a joy to invest all you have into a dream and see it come alive and real.

We are looking for someone who has that same dream – but may not want to invest the same amount of work!

You see, our dreams have changed! We now are dreaming of a forty foot catamaran ocean sailboat where our family travels to places only reachable by boat. Tropical paradises, pure white sand beaches, and balmy breezes make up our next dream.

Catamaran

We still love our farm, and the choice to let someone else take over where we are is a very painful one, but dreams are for following!
