Can anyone give me a ballpark figure on what land acreage prices are in the area north of Lake McConaughy. Can you buy anything less than super large tracks? Looks awfully unihabited at night from a small aircraft. The price would dictate what i would be interested in. Wouldn't need to be much at all. An old little house etc with a small acreage enough for a couple horses.

Keep in mind, most sandy ground is going to need about 10 acres minimum to support a horse if you carefully cross-fence. Even then, you're going to have to monitor your grass health pretty closely. Twenty would be better.
The closer to Lake Mac you get, the higher it's going to be. I would suggest looking into the real estate listings in Ogallala to get an idea...

A few others as well
Noticed on Jack Nerud's site that you can get 3.8 acres with small house for $65,000 and just above that was 480 acres (140 dry farm and 340 grass) for $192,000.

When you say smaller, wasn't sure what you were thinking... in some parts of Nebraska 480 would be small in others it would be huge.
