Living in Delta

Southwest Colorado is home to Delta County, Colorado. Delta County is the fortieth largest of Colorado's sixty-four counties, according to its total land area (1,148 square miles). In Delta County, Colorado, horse properties covering approximately 9,000 acres were recently put up for sale, and their total value was estimated to be approximately $24 million. The towns of Hotchkiss and nearby Paonia are located in Delta County, which is 1,149 square miles in size and has elevations ranging from 4,000 to 11,000 feet. These towns are part of Delta County, which is often overlooked in favor of Colorado's other outdoor playgrounds to the west and north of Denver. In addition to a number of vineyards and wineries, the lower slopes are home to farms and ranches, pick-your-own-fruit orchards, and small towns that are home to farmer's markets, antique shops, and craft studios.

A popular outdoor destination for hikers, kayakers, and anglers, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is located within the county, and the county serves as the park's main entrance. In the summertime, whitewater rafting trips down the untamed and treacherous Gunnison River are among the most popular activities enjoyed by visitors to Gunnison Gorge. Delta County had horse farms available for purchase at an average price of 4 million dollars. Elk, mule deer, bear, turkey, whitetail deer, geese, and ducks are just some of the other species of wildlife that can be found on the Delta County equestrian property that is currently available for purchase.

Ancient Brachiosaurus and Ultrasaurus bones were discovered at Dry Mesa Quarry, a popular tourist destination for both children and adults. The Fort Uncompahgre Living History Museum transports visitors back in time to a fur trading post with its living history fort and costumed interpreters. Every September in nearby Delta, the Council Tree Pow Wow honors Ute culture with art exhibits and dancing.

Homes with acres in Delta

Delta is a beautiful, rustic place that’s perfect for keeping horses. There are, of course, lots of places that would be unsuitable or too small to keep a horse comfortably, but you can find lots of homes with acres of land in the mid to northwest region of Delta.

Most properties that are suitable for horses come ready with a horse/livestock setup, well-maintained paddocks, barns, stables, and other equine facilities. However, if you fall in love with a property that isn’t already equipped, your Kenna real estate agent will be able to help you find out the laws on zoning so that you can begin to mold the home of your dreams.

Tips on buying properties suitable for keeping horses

Knowing what you want and having an experienced realtor will make finding horse property in Delta easier. If you are looking to buy or sell a property for your horse, Kenna Real Estate is here to help. You should find the following suggestions helpful in getting ready for your property search in Delta.

Ensure the property is horse-friendly. Because horses can only be kept on properties that have the proper zoning, it's critical that you pick a property that will allow you to do what you want with them. Many Delta homes with acres have been used to keep horses, but check local zoning and regulations. Consider how these rules will affect property work, such as building a stable or arena. If you're buying land, you'll want to work with a local realtor who's familiar with the local regulations.

How much space do your horses need? Grazing horses in a paddock rather than feeding them in a stable necessitates plenty of space. Space needs depend on the number of horses and local regulations. There should be at least five acres of land for every horse in Colorado. You may need more space for an arena or other land use.

Check to see what kind of condition the land is in. The best horse properties have dry, well-drained land with good pasture and no hazards. As soon as you get there, make sure that the land is suitable for housekeeping. Learn to recognize potentially harmful plants for horses, such as milkweed and ragwort. Check the grass and drainage. The best horse properties should have a water source.

Understand which features are most important to you and your equine companion. The amenities that come with equestrian properties in Delta can be very different.
