Acreage in the Eden, Utah area exists on which would be excellent land to raise horses. The land provides a scenic view for everyone to enjoy as they ride and care for the animals. As you develop your ideas for your horse property, do you contemplate having solely pastures, or pastures plus outbuildings.
Ascertain the type of foliage present on any land you intend to use as pasture for the horses. Be certain that you choose land which produces the proper nutrition for your animals, or be sure that it is available to you. Meet with a local vet to establish whether the land is proper for grazing, and what steps should be taken to replenish the plant life periodically.
Again, consult with a local vet to see the recommended number of adult animals per acre for the type of land you are considering for your animals. Find out about any predators which might be a threat to horses, including parasites and any local diseases.
This falls into the propriety of the particular land for raising and keeping horses. A local animal expert will be able to instruct you about the area and its use for horses.
Ascertain the availability of proper food and the expense of getting it to the horses during all seasons of the year. Assess the food storage potential available on the land.
Are there any outbuildings on the Eden Utah real estate you want to purchase for your horses, or will you have to supply that prior to moving the horses on the land? If the outbuildings or fences are in disrepair, can you negotiate a lower price for the land?
What size structure will be needed? Consider insurance costs on the entire complex when you arrive at your budget for your operation. Will this be an owner-operated ranch for your horses, or will you staff it with employees.
