Ok... now, just in case we don't find something with enough land... this is for my equine pals again... what's the boarding situation like in the Kearneysville area? I'm looking for simple board, field board, they provide hay - I can provide my own grain and want my horses turned out 24/7. I would want trails and a ring and a non-show barn. What are price ranges??

Thanks!

I don't think you will have any trouble finding a place with enough acreage to house your horses. And there is so much wilderness area in the whole state of WV that you needn't worry about what land or trails the stable provides. Most of the wooded areas in the state are wide open for enjoyment by everyone. And if you do need to board your horses, you are apt to find someone who has a barn on their property that they aren't using that you could probably rent with the abutting fenced property to keep your horses in. The only difference is that you will have to do everything - including supply the hay.

Sounds good to me! I have to admit, the thought of having the horses boarded for a while is a nice thought. Having them at my place now is a lot of labor intensive work in all the weather and after doing this only two plus years, I'm so ready to just visit them and ride. LOL I would however, still consider keeping them with me since that's mostly what they know. It is encouraging to know though that there is still so much land and wilderness. Up here in PA, you see a nice big open space and then next week when you drive by they have begun staking it out for a huge subdivision - it's really depressing to see all the land disappearing.
