REDUCED!!! If you make a living in the horse business or want to, then this 32 +/- acre property in Winston County, MS is the place for you. You may be in the business and need better facilities and more space, or if you’re working on the road and want to be home everyday working on your own farm with your family, then you need to take a hard look at the possibilities here. This is not just a wonderful farm to live on with unbelievable facilities, a great home, stocked fishing pond, and in a great part of Mississippi, but also an investment and business opportunity. A chance to run your own show, be your own boss, and make a heck of a good living. In the not too distant past, when this place was running on all cylinders, there were 40 horses being trained here at $1,100 per horse, per month, it can handle up to 50. Do the math and you can realize a very significant return on investment. Business has slowed now only because the NCHA World Champion and Hall of Famer cutting horse trainer and owner, Allen Crouch, has decided to shift gears and work on his other farm. This property has everything you could ever imagine for a horse and set up for cattle as well, with fenced pastures and plenty of barns, arenas, walkers, stalls, catch pens and shoots. All of this and a nice 2,025 sq. ft, 4BR/2BA home and a 1999 2BR/1BA mobile home used for a caretakers’ home. As I said, this place has everything you could ever want or need for a horse. Starting with the main barn, it is set up with 16 stalls (each with power outlets and water), a medicine room with a bathroom, sink and heater, tac room and wash rack with hot and cold water. There is also a covered feed bin that holds four tons of feed and has a sloped floor, making it much easier to feed. Four of the 16 stalls in the main barn are located outside on the south side of the barn, these are large stalls measuring 14’x24’. Walk through the barn and straight into the 100’x100’ lighted indoor arena. The arena is constructed of all metal, has four large fans and six more stalls connected to it. Just behind the arena you will find eight more stalls. A total of 30 horse stalls, are all under one roof with the barn and arena. And beyond that is a drop shed that can hold 2,000 square bales of hay. It doesn’t stop there. Beside the main barn is a 40’x40’ – six horse covered walker, which is very rare. Next to it is the 100’x125’ open arena with a 26’x120’ covered cattle/colts working pen, this area has many uses. Below the open arena is a 40’x140’ covered cattle pen. There is a 20’x40’ feed shed, and two shavings buildings. A couple more features to the farm that must be mentioned are the double decker loading chute and the four turn-outs. The turn-outs allow a place for the horses to get out and play some, instead of staying in the stalls or saddled up all the time. (The arena at the front of the property, near the road, is not included with the purchase.) The entire property is fenced, and all works great together. It is set up with a nice flow with the fences, gates and chutes. The water is supplied with a private well, but also has community water available if needed. This is a turn-key operation just waiting for its new owner.
