Horses and "Horse Sense"-Active Rain Success Stories- The Green Series (2)

Not long ago, prospective clients emailed me after reading my BLOG on Active Rain.
Our conversation began something like this and then progressed ....

Prospective Clients (PC): "We really like your BLOG. We've even subscribed to it because you seem like a person we can relate to. We're going to relocate from our farm in California to Asheville, N.C.

and we're interested in horse/equestrian properites in the Asheville area.   We want to create an environmentally-friendly horse farm  on a small scale. We will be bringing our eight horses and possibly adding a few more more next know how that goes!

janeAnne: "How do you plan to house your horses...and your family?"

PC: "We need very nice shelter for the horses. We have a large family of four boys... My husband is very tall and will only settle for cathedral ceilings  given his height, and we need at least six bedrooms. The house doesn't have to be in perfect shape, but it has to have at least 4 bathrooms. My husband wants at least one acre of semi-level land to plant and harvest organic vegetables.

We'd love to have a spring for watering the garden and horses,,,and a creek or stream would be a real plus.. If you had a farm with the potential for solar power,  I would be thrilled!

janeAnne: "Wow PC! This is Your Lucky Day!  I know a 25 acre property with many, in fact most of the features you mentioned. It has clean, well-maintained stables for your horses, a vocal stream, winding trails and a ranch house in need of some TLC, but with enough room for your entire family. After we look at it, we could look at another property that's also on the market  that is available for less money. It has most everything you mentioned, except it is 45 minutes our from Asheville. We could also consider and in-town masterpiece with all amenities, but it is going to reflect the close-in location in terms of dolalrs.... 

Does this make "horse sense" to you??

Next Chapter: This weekend the folks who found us from Active Rain will arrive. ..and after much correspondence, it feels to me that they are appreciative of our eco-savvy and horse-friendly expertise...and ready to make buying decisions.

Terrific! Please do share what happens after the tours. Might your buyer's packet include some of your poetry? I think that would be a lovely touch.
