bcnewe2 Posted February 14, 2009 Report Share Posted February 14, 2009 I'm sorta afraid to write about it, don't want to jinks it but I need advise So the place we've found in CO is just about perfect, if I don't think about the price tag. They are also ready for a quick close. One of the deals of this place is that they will sell it 15xxx cheaper to us if we agree to take care of thier horses for 2 years. I think they have 2 (I'll find out more tomorrow) horses. It's 10 acres of pasture, with irrigation and cross fencing so I suppose there's grass but havn't seen it. I would not be responsible for feed, or care. I think you call it pasture boarding? How much will it stress my property to keep 2 horses on 10 acres? Could I keep then drylotted most of the time and only use hay + grain? I will have sheep just don't know what kind or how many yet. Leaning towards wool this time. (that just sounds so wonderful after being without for 7 months) I am also considering the thought of trying to find 1 or even 2 if it's doable, more horses to board to off set the monthly payment. Again, I don't want to take up all my pasture with horses but I was thinking if I have 2 what's 1 more, if it makes my place more affordable. What might I expect for boarding fees, with being about 15 minutes to the closest major town and that's right next to Aspen, it's a total yuppy place so I figure that's worth a bit more! ideas anyone?? I'm getting pretty parnoid, we have to be out of here by the 18 of March. Unless the place I described above comes through we won't have a place yet. I can't believe how expensive it is to buy out there but we also figured out that renting was even more expensive. Besides we haven't had any luck of finding a place that will take 4+ dogs. So this little farm might be the deal we have to take. Thank doG it's a nice one! I'm so excited and nervous I should be losing weight! To bad I don't seem to be but sleep is not finding me anymore. The most exciting thing right now is the people who are buying this place are in a real hurry, I agreed to let them start bringing stuff down now for convience. I heard last night through their realestate guy that they were going to offer us 15xxx to help us move right away and the realestate company told them they couldn't do it, or they didn't know how to do it. I say...just write the check and I'm out of here. What do you think if for that extra money I was gone next week and closing won't be till March 18. Like they'd be renting the place till then. Scary but damnnn I could sure use the extra money. Gonna get the story from them tomorrow. They'll be here tonight! They are 8 hours away so they'll be staying in town for a few days. OK....I'll keep you posted and if anyone has any idea about the horse thing, please let me know! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
