Welcome to Horse Country

Horse People, looky here! As a specialist in horse property, I’m always being asked to find clients  a “modest home on acreage, set up for horses”. Well, here it is! True horse people care much more about the land than the house, but this one is the rare gem that has both beautiful accommodations for the equines, as well as a stunning updated home for the two-legged loves of your life.

Front Door

Secluded, quiet, and peaceful, this darling ranch on 26 acres in Parker County is just what the doctor ordered for a weekend getaway from Dallas. Looking more like a Hill Country castle than a West DFW ranch, the stone encased custom home features raw repurposed wood, wraparound porches, a wide open modern floorplan, and plenty of family friendly updates.

Howdy, folks, and welcome to Barefoot Farms. We’ve explored a lot of cute hobby farms, nice vacation homes, and quaint gentleman’s ranches here on Ranch of the Week. This is not one of those times. It’s time to cowgirl up a little (ok, a lot), and check out a real incoming-producing working horse property in Sanger, Texas.

Barns

This is Barefoot Farms, a 19.26-acre equestrian paradise for the serious horse trainer, breeder, or anyone aspiring to own a big-time boarding business.

There are six different living quarters on the property, including a charming three-bedroom two-bath main home that has been completely remodeled into the perfect practical owners’ quarters.

Barefoot Farms is really quite whimsical for such a hardcore horse property, which honestly, I just love about it. The guest quarters and ranch hand house have a country-chic southwestern feel that just makes you smile.

Alright, I’ll admit — what really made me smile about this amazing facility were the incredible equine amenities. This place is a horse lover’s dream. The six barns have more than 90 stalls, complete with multiple tack rooms, wash racks, and two hot walkers.
