outdoor arena (178'W X 256'D) has a number of elm trees growing to the south side
of it, which will eventually provide shade. The property has two areas of mature
trees and grass, which are great for giving the horses the opportunity to graze.
The 15 acres of grass/alfalfa fields up front have produced up to 2,400 small bales
in a year.
The horse pens are quite large, and all have a "run in" shelter at
each. Four sheds are frame built on concrete foundations, and two are steel frame
(one of these is on a concrete stem wall). All are lined with plywood, and
covered/roofed with metal. Each pen has access to a frost free hydrant, two of
the pens also have a Ritchie automatic waterer.
Watering of the irrigated hay
fields and other "irrigated" tree/grass areas is accomplished via an underground
pipeline (which brings water from the two ditches for the property).
Horse pens are surrounded by welded pipe fencing (with additional horse fencing and
electric in some pens). All irrigated areas on property have underground
