Managing Horses on Small Property

Horses on a little over two acres, sustainability and keeping it all organized, efficient, and running well.

Horse Keeping on Small Acreage

We are not new to horse ownership and have had horses for over 10  years; however, we always boarded them locally.   When the industry I worked in began to sink, I was looking for ways to cut costs and live simply.   We only have just over two acres and live in an agriculturally zoned area.  Tight fit?  Absolutely, but we were willing to put the hard work in to make it work.

I won’t kid you, it is a lot of working, but it is very rewarding.   From controlling erosion to composting and growing vegetables from the manure our horses produce, we work every day to keep it all organized, clean, and sustainable on a budget.   These articles address issues and problem solving from angry neighbors to managing grass as a crop to vetting ourselves. 

If you  have followed us since the live video feed of Pixie’s Birth, we will be updating on Pixie here!
