LAND AND PASTURES

• The pastures are all organic coastal Bermuda grass, great for grazing, 2-2.5 Acres will feed a horse, there are large scattered oak trees throughout the countryside
• The soil was treated with live microorganisms twice in 2007 and twice in 2008, the soil is now naturally healthy, as a result of the treatments… Pastures and hay field are all organic, 90% of the flies are eliminated due to the treatments and the soil holds extra moisture
• 8 Primary pastures; 4 on each side of the property that have 16 foot wide fence lanes leading to 2 barns, consequently horses come to “their barn stalls” for grain without being haltered

• The soil is sandy loam without rocks, perfect for horses
• There are 4 ponds on the land that always have water
• Beautiful rolling terrain that gives the horses excellent exercise, especially great for foals
• Facilities all built on top of a major hill (can see 2 to 7 miles in all directions from the main barn), most of the horses are visible in their pastures from the hilltop
• The hill provides excellent summer breezes that makes the temperature cooler and reduces insects
