Life is strolling along on the new property. The house is FINALLY coming together and there is an end in sight. Some day I'll actually be able to live with my horses again! The days of complaining about hauling water to the horses are gone, we have water, wash rack, tie rack, arena, trails... all the things a horse lover could ask for. Well, I could ask for a barn, but I promised my husband I won't for a couple of years. Land clearing and house building takes a lot of time and money!

Horse businesses should be operated basically in the same way as other business, utilizing business principles and judgment in decision-making, and maintaining appropriate books and records. In fact, only a minimum level of record-keeping or businesslike records is required by Tax Court cases, and the primary concern is the accuracy of the records kept--showing the number of horses owned at a given time, the date of purchase, sale prices, breeding data, horse show entry dates, racing results, and so on.
