When looking for a horse property, there are a few things to keep in mind. Horses require open grazing meadows, sufficient water, and maintained fencing. The area surrounding Sedalia and Perry Park is known for renowned equine properties with its rolling grasslands, accessibility to the highway and modern conveniences, and adequate water sources.
Although not currently used for horses, Lazy Bones Ranch’s amenities give it the potential to be a great equine property including;
- A 2,475 foot hay barn that was built in 1996. The barn was originally designed with the hope that one day, half or more would be converted into horse stalls.
- This past year, the property was re-fenced. The main hay field has also been posted for potential pasture.
- The managers of the property have always had horses and pasture them near the caretaker’s cabin.
- There are two wells on the property, a pond, and a natural stream supplying sufficient water to the property.
