Miniature Horse Farms Estate
What Makes Miniature Horse Farms….Miniature?
Miniature horse farms are simply down-scaled versions of larger horse farms. Generally speaking, a smaller farm may range between 2.5 – 4 or 5 acres. Ultimately the size of acreage is relative to the person who is doing the investing. For one individual 5 acres may seem like a large number, for another 20 acres may seem small. A good rule of thumb, however is to estimate the number of acres needed for a horse farm on the number of horses a person owns. A single horse may need as much as 2.5 acres to live comfortably.
Horse owners are more interested in a miniature horse farms estate because they are more accessible than sprawling estates and luxurious mansions for many people. On an area of 2.5 – 5 acres, a homeowner can build a custom dwelling that is as much as 5000 square feet and still have room for stables and other structures needed on a farm.
Why Choose a Smaller Farm?
Horse farms, like any other farm require labor intensive work. Maintaining horses is a strenuous activity that often requires a team of people. Smaller farms provide the opportunity to experience raising horses while having less land to tend to. Mini farms may be ideal for families just starting out with raising horses or individuals that have just one or two equines to raise. Furthermore, small farms can provide an opportunity to expand later on down the line.
