Salem Oregon Horse Property: November 2014

Moving to Oregon in 2015 with your Horses

Is moving with your horses to Oregon in your plans for 2015?  There are a few things you want to know before you hop in the trailer and hit the road.  

  1. Hire an Equestrian Real Estate Broker to help you with the search and purchase of your new horse property here in Oregon.  Yes, a shameless plug, at least for the Willamette Valley.  But in all seriousness, why would you hire a typical broker that does not have any horse knowledge?  
  2. If you plan on arriving in Oregon before the close of your purchase, obtain a list of boarding facilities View from my horse overlooking the Valley near Turner, Oregonfrom your real estate broker to assist with finding temporary housing.  An agent familiar with the local facilities will be able to point you in the right direction for a facility to fit your needs.  Finding suitable barns in the winter with availability can be a challenge.
  3. If you are coming from a warmer client and plan on arriving between October and May, pack a medium to heavy weight turnout, not a stable blanket.  Your horse will need the water proof protection of a turnout.  (Seriously, will a non-horsey person know to suggest this?)
  4. Refer to the Transportation Requirements for equine crossing state lines.  Among other things, a Health certificate is required.  You can also contact the Oregon State Veterinarian for your specific questions.
  5. Have a consultation either via phone, Skype or at least lengthy emails, with your equine real estate broker about equine life here in the valley.  Hay sources, grazing pasture needs, zoning requirements, there are many things to consider that might be different than what you are use to.  You can request a consultation with us, we would be glad to answer your questions!
