I currently live in Maryland (closer to Delaware) and HATE the summers here. There never seems to be a true spring/fall and winter is never predictable. I'm having issues functioning in this heat, especially working outside as much as I need to. Then winter is even worse. I need some place not so extreme weather wise.

I have two horses, a few chickens and a cat.

I work from home, so jobs are not an issue.

My criteria:

More usable days during the year - I'd love fall year round but I know that doesn't really exist
Good pastures
Minimum of 5 acres - the cheaper the better - I will be doing this alone and would like to stay under 150k
Must be already setup for horses - fencing at least with some kind of shelter. Barn is not mandatory.
Water on the property would be lovely
Decent hay costs - I'm between $4 and $6 for small squares and $35 for 400-600lb round bales of eh quality hay.
Trails - places to ride is a must

I'm more of a small town person. As long as there is access to groceries and essentials, I'm good.

I couldn't care less what my surroundings look like either as long as it's safe and I can get a decent, functional place.

I do think I want to stay on the east coast. While I LOVE Montana and Colorado, I don't think I could do the winters. But it is oh so gorgeous there.

Perhaps Utah. Summers are hot, but not humid. And there's plenty of open spaces.
