|I have not told him yet... but he is losing his double sized Princess digs.|
We will have to move the horses to the new place way before a barn will be built and this is giving me STRESS!
|This is Dutch's 100% preferred location|
What is in place is a 20x20 carport that we are going to build out two temporary stalls and an aisle. I may have fallen down a pinterest worm hole in trying to plan out what this is going to look like and how I going to manage the horses in our worst weather season (Winter = MUD) as we are establishing grass and building out our permanent fencing. All with a smaller barn and a dirt sacrifice...
|This is what my barn yard looked like when we moved in. It was just normal winter here.|
|This was during our last hurricane... I mean, come on, forget diamonds- GRAVEL is a girls best friend.|
The good news is that the land is flat and drains well.
|Unlike *some* of our current place.|
The bad news is that I am a crazy person when it comes to horses standing in mud. I hate it. I boarded places where 6 months out of the year the in and out gates for every pasture became boot and shoe sucking swamps. I cannot over state how much I despise set ups that run this way. In fact at our current farm, I bought and hand spread 32 tons of stone dust before I even fixed the whole in the barn roof. So, Pray for me y'all. This will not be the best winter.
