With 44 total acres and 8 currently in irrigation this property is a prime Western Colorado horse property if you are looking for a place to go on long horseback rides without loading your horses in the trailer. The horse property backs up to the Adobe Badlands which consists of thousands of BLM and State Wildlife Study area acres. The property features several outbuildings for covered storage of tools, equipment, hay and trailers. There is a 30' x 48', metal Cleary™ building with a unique and customizable floor plan. The stalls can be configured for 4 standard size stalls with a drive-thru isle or easily converted to a 3 standard size stall setup with a large foaling stall and storage area. Irrigation water comes in the form of ten (10) shares of North Delta Canal and being on the end of the canal, this property could very easily expand its number of irrigated acres.
