I hope I am not offending any of you Coloradalites.

I have been up by the Eagle/Bend area quite a bit. Whew, expensive. Also been to Carbondale, Breckenridge, Vail, Boulder...all beautiful.

Been online to look at property in several areas of Colorado with a couple of acres, whew expensive.

I love the beauty and weather of the state.

Does anyone know where it is reasonable to live and to be able to buy a home with a couple of acres that are horse friendly?

Thanks

Hey there-
What kinda commute are you looking for? Are you going to be living in Denver? Colorado Springs? Castle Rock? There are areas that are affordable, just need a little more information. SHEP

I am pretty open. Cost of living for my perimeters is what will be a big deciding factor.
I like smaller towns, but no more than within an hour of a bigger city to get supplies.
Good horse area.

Default Look at Cortez

If you just want a small ranch town that is inexpensive, look at Cortez in SW Colorado. You can go into Farmington, NM for more shopping as it is quite big and is about 40 miles away. Cortez has basic shopping, a grocery store, Walmart, etc. but Farmington has about everything. Cortez has lots of horses in the area and has mild winters.

Woodland Park, Monument as well as both the East (Falcon,Calhan) and West (Manitou Springs) sides of Colorado Springs are worth taking a gander at.

Good luck with your search!
