Here are some property features we'll help you consider:
The Barn: The most important element of a barn is the size and location on the property. You'll want to ensure that the barn is large enough to meet your needs and that the location will allow you to easily work within the property.
Pastures: A good quality pasture will be a source of exercise and nutrition, and their management will have a direct effect on the health of your horses. We'll help you determine whether the pastures we look at are right for you and your horses, from seed type to paddocks.
Water: The Lexington, KY area is fairly lucky when it comes to natural water sources but we still experience drought conditions in some summer months. That's why water management systems and supplies are a crucial aspect to consider when looking at farms. We'll help you evaluate water sources to ensure your horses drink, regardless of the weather.
The House: Most horse farm owners live at their farm, which makes the house just as important as the farm itself. Make sure the real estate you purchase has the full package and that the house will suit your needs for the next several years.
Soil: Whether soil is high quality or not has a big impact on how successful an agricultural or horse farming venture is. For more information about which soil types are best for horse farms, read this article.
The Fence: Fencing is important for any horse farm. It is also often expensive to have fencing installed, which is why it's important to know from the start whether you'll need to spend time updating or replacing fences. Read more about fencing horse farms here.
