Talk me In, talk me Out: Horsekeeping on Hawaii
My brother is looking into relocating to Hawaii (Big Island) & has put a bug in my ear too.
Gotta say the idea of adiosing Midwest Winter 4-Ever is attractive.
Looking at MLS I am seeing listings in Puna & Mountain View areas of 3ac or more for what seem to be reasonable prices.
*Are there restrictions to keeping horses on this amount of acreage?
*What are the pluses or drawbacks to having horses at home in Hawaii?
*Is there another part of the island more suited?
*Explain "catchment water"
*Where does hay come from & cost - ditto feed
*Vets, farriers < hard to find or...
*Etcetera - fill me in on all the poop, Good, Bad, Ugly et al
