There are numerous ranches with primarily horses on Flour Bluff and some ranch land for sale as well.

Thanks for the input. We would like to be "outside" of town CC, half hr ride or so, we are looking for a home with 5 or so acres to place our horses and have access for trails yet be semi close to work and ride. Here in NY it is not uncommon for people to drive over 1.5 hrs just to get to work, which many people think is insane. We kind of are looking to be in a wyoming ranch yet we both hate the cold and corpus looks so nice and people say its boring which sounds great. Real estate down there is so affordable compared to here in NY.

Sandia is about 40 minutes out of Corpus itself, less to Callallen. The last time I was through there (a couple of months ago), there looked like a developement with 1-5 acre tracts and a few houses already built was up between Orange Grove and Sandia.

Palo Alto is another place you might be interested in. It is further away from the lake and river than Mathis or Sandia. It is brush country out there. I am not sure if this bothers you or appeals to you. Your 5 acres would definately seem like much more due to the density of the brush blocking you from your neighbors. It is about 35 miles from Corpus. Bishop is also in the same area and roughly the same distance from Corpus.

Just remember that while it is cheaper to live in South Texas, your wages are also going to be lower than the rest of Texas, and way lower than New York. Don't think the pay will stay the same (unless you do some sort of online business that allows you to keep the same pay scale) and the housing costs will just decrease. You can make a good, honest living down here, but it takes some hard work.
