Equine Management   arrow

For many small acreage landowners, the reason for purchasing acreage is to own a horse. Owning and caring for horses is an expensive and time-consuming hobby that requires careful planing. In the front range region, it takes somewhere between 25 and 40 acres to support a horse with no supplemental feed. Be prepared to purchase hay. A responsible horse owner will also have a relationship in place with an equine veterinarian before the need arises.
