About Missouri



Missouri is known as the "Show Me State"--meaning one should back up talk with proof. The slogan is not an official one, but it does appear on the license plates. It is an endearing statement that people from Missouri say, "I'm from Missouri, you have to Show Me!"

Missouri typically is categorized as both a midwestern and a southern state. The region was split on Union and Confederate issues during the Civil War. A small region of the state is called Little Dixie for the influx of southerners that settled there. Famed explorers Lewis and Clark mounted an expedition that led them to discover a large part of the Midwest and upper Western states. Their home base was Missouri. The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is one of the tallest historic sites in the United States and thousands of tourists flock to snap photos of this, “Gateway to the West," every year. Visitors can also ride to the top of the Arch for a more expansive view. One of the state's geographic features is where the famed Mississippi River meets the Missouri River. The state is also the only one of two in the nation that actually touches the borders of eight other states. Tennessee is the other.

The Missouri horse industry produces goods and services valued at $718 million. The national industry has a $1.3 billion impact on the Missouri economy when the multiplier effect of spending by industry suppliers and employees is taken into account. 125,100 Missourians are involved in the industry as horse owners, service providers, employees, and volunteers. Even more participate as spectators. The Missouri horse industry directly provides 42,200 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs. Spending by suppliers and employees (in Missouri and other states) generates additional jobs in Missouri for a total employment impact of 56,000. There are 281,000 horses in Missouri, over 70 percent of which are involved in showing and recreation.

200 acres of fenced paradise with rustic bunkhouse, barn, pond and pastures

Stover, Morgan County, Missouri

This picturesque 200+/- acres of lush green pastures edged with timber is an equestrian’s or cattleman's dream. It comes with a 30’x60’ shouse/bunkhouse/ or hunting cabin with an attached garage and a smaller two-bedroom fixer-upper house on the property. Nearly every inch of pasture and semi-cleared acreage is thickly planted with lespedeza, fescue and timothy. This well-manicured land is encased on all sides with cattle-tight fencing, and when the snow flies in winter, there is no chopping ice for watering from the recently-dug 15-foot-deep pond that features a drain-pipe leading to an automatic waterer with an open and shut-off valve. Landscape-engineered hill-side trenches work to guide rain-water runoff to the pond so that it stays full. If you are looking for serenity and seclusion, think about this: The fence-line around the entire fully fenced property can be walked, ridden, or four-wheeled without seeing a single home nearby. There are walnut trees, wet-weather creeks, a shop-building and a rustic barn, the yard of which is completely surrounded by an iron-pipe corral with gates on each side leading in and out of the barnyard. The property has a working well, electricity, internet availability, and is located only minutes away from medical facilities, shopping, boating and fishing on the 54,000-acre Lake of the Ozarks, and local saddle-club recreation areas (for both youth and adults) such as rodeo events and trail rides at state parks and on the Overland-Butterfield Trail, over which stagecoaches were once drawn by gentle-giant breeds. Located at nearby towns of Stover and Versailles are established horse-shoeing services, professional trainers and veterinarians; plus, western-wear retailers who also sell tack and horse equipment. Aside from all that, there are many possibilities for this scenic, well-cared-for property that must be seen to be appreciated. Call Sharon today!
