Hello, Farm Builders!

After a lifetime of riding and 15+ years of horse ownership, I have finally had the amazing opportunity to bring my horse home. Midway through the construction process, I am learning more all the time and thought maybe others could benefit from my experiences. So, the purpose of this blog is to spread useful information on how to construct and, eventually, manage a small horse farm. Or, to help you learn from my mistakes! I hope you find it useful.

For privacy reasons I will be somewhat vague about my location, the particular service providers I use, and costs. However, if you send me a direct message about these things I may be willing to answer them. That is some of the information I found hardest to obtain when planning, and I hope to be able to help others out.

Since I have already gotten started I will have to play catch-up with my posts for a while and hope to make them topically focused, i.e., a post on wood finishing, a post on arena planning, a post on barn plumbing, etc.



  1. You said if we had any questions to message you privately. How can I do that? I would like to ask you some things. I am in the process of getting my small farm and I love your barn. Please let me know how to contact you privately.

    1. Thanks for your compliment, I love my barn too! You're right, there was no way to contact me. I added an email address to my profile, so if you look in the upper right corner of any page you should be able to click on "View my complete profile" and then on "Email." I'm happy to offer whatever help I can!
