Horses...You've Admired Them, Rode Them And Want To Raise Them In Maine.

    

As a child you learned how to walk, trot, canter and even switched over into western riding to see what maine field farm scene,mooers realty farm for salethose folks were all about.

Now as an adult, you want to see the four legged beasts dotting a rolling pasture, munching clover and looking for apples when you approach the fence behind your farm house. Big, sensitive, and way more care than a cat or dog that needs water, some chow and a stratch behind the ear or a pat on the head. Hay burners, another term of endearment for a horse. You have a few, why not board some others to help pay the overhead?

    

If you've never had a horse to care for and only slid on / off the animal growing up, hang on to your spurs and crop.

There is a check list of things you need to know. Are those animals just field trophies? To look at or compete with, breed with? You have options with the horses if you are going to compete and plan to show them in classes like dressage, eventing, equitation, field hunter, hunter, hunter jumper or get into barrel racing, negotiating obstacle courses, or maybe involving carriages, harness racing optons. What kind of horses? How much of a budget to buy or do you put out feelers for a free horse needed for a good home approach? When the daughter's head to college, mom/dad and little brother get tired of shoveling the stuff coming out the other end during the winter months. You know when they are not turned out and holed up in a box stall in a Northern Maine barn. I grew up with horses at a little family operation called "Camp Little Ponderosa". Colts, geldings, aroostook county farm aerial,houlton maine farmponies, brood mares, Arabians, Appaloosa..you have a lot to learn about raising horses if you were not exposed to them day in / day out somewhere in your past. Harness racing horses in Maine is a big sport, and time consuming, expensive like most hobbies/passions. And wild rescued horses from out west being cared for is another option that I see alot of in the Houlton Maine area.

     So if you are in the beginning stages of "feeling out" raising horses for pleasure or profit in Maine, where to do it, what setting is the first step to consider. Here is one ME horse raising option. Hard work, rewarding honest physical labor from horse births, to frozen water lines, calling their names while slapping the side of a grain can, currying out the burrs, carding out the tail burdocks. Horses in Maine..see yourself on the other end of the lead  or lunge line? Try this Maine farm on for size, see if it fits your "dream".

That is an incredible piece of property.  The master bath is bigger than my condo!

Quite the nice spot, although a little cold for me. My cattle and horses are still in Texas.

The price is sooooooo attractive along with the setting, the buildings, the spread. I can see you sitting tall and pretty in the saddle Cindy...trail ride at noon, 238 AR types saddle up, head out with the bed roll, can of beans, harmonica.

Anyone that has been here to Maine in the winter knows it is not dark for six months, dog sleds and igloos...it fun with a coat on in the sun like this Maine winter video. Maine is four seasons, not just winter and we do not hibernate, shiver or get house bound with all the outdoor recreational options.

I think blogging and providing insight into a way of live, an area where you live and service is the front step to giving the reader something they want, need, are searching for. Then at the bottom it just so happens the writer sells something that fits that needs. Secondary approach rather than in your face property, property, property and nothing else. It's more than sticks and bricks with real estate sales...its using the five senses to give the feel, the flavor of where the heck the property is on the planet. Thanks Leilani.

Video is five sense marketing. Images are nice but you don't hear the cows/horses munching, swaying, see the tails batting flys and the sun setting with leaves moving and crickets singing at sunset in Maine. Audio on video is 40 percent of the price of admission. Live, at the scene audio is HUGE and the slide shows with ivory tinkling or a flute solo is like turning the sound off of your favorite show and throwing you in an elevator.
