When horse things derail my thought process...

So I was sitting there, at work, doing work. Mapping out fields, adding crops, applying products to fields, basically playing real life SimFarm only I can't have all the fields be strawberry fields even though everyone knows they make the most money. Well I could, but the farms record keeping wouldn't be real accurate... and I would have to spend all season picking strawberries and that wouldn't be as much fun as I would imagine. So when I added a field, something caught my eye.

Is that? Is that what I think it is?

Nah, couldn't be...could it?

It MUST be! A horse property with a cross country course, stadium jumping arena and a dressage area! Eventers!

Of course inquiring minds want to know and I did a quick investigation...these satellite images were from 2010. I searched the address and found that the place sold in 2012 but the listing sounds wonderful!
Wonderfully set up horse property boasts 110 acres, 32x50 barn with 7 box stalls, 16x30 barn and a 1 bdrm, 1 bath, 576 sq ft home. There are 2 fenced pastures with shelters and plenty of room to ride. The property also as 150'+ on Lake. Great spot for future development or a secluded getaway that offers land and lake. Buildings and fences are in great condition.

Unfortunately, a recent Google satellite image shows that the places hasn't been kept up as an awesome horse property. Sad. And boo on the "great spot for future development" part of the real estate listing! Who ever bought this failed. Big time. But who knows, maybe they are still using it as intended! I want these people as my friends if they are using it as it's supposed to be used! Maybe I need to road trip and check the potatoes to do a little investigating...



  1. That's to bad...I don't know anything about what makes a good horse property but that place looks sweet!

  2. I would have had the same reaction! You should definitely go "check the potatoes".

  3. Sad that it hasn't been maintained.
