Active Horse Sanctuary For Sale in Braceville, Ohio
Leavittsburg, Trumbull County, Ohio
Make no mistake about the listing for sale. It is an “Active Horse Sanctuary”, located in Braceville, not Leavittsburg, in Trumbull County, Ohio! Lets be clear, very clear Braceville is far different than Leavittsburg. Therefore, we have been instructed by the owner to only talk to those prospects that will at least consider continuing the work that has been the driving force of the property sine 1905, but not exclusively horse people. Accordingly, we are pleased to present a farm designed and operated for the many horses that have been abandoned, abused or cast aside by their owners. With that, we add respectively "Once you have tasted life at Canterbury, once you have reached inside and touched the soul of an abused horse and felt its pain then witnessed its recovery and its return to trusting again because of your actions, your compassion, and most of all your unquestionable love and dedication, its impossible to realize happiness any where else in this world. So be careful what you wish for, becsuse the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence, but rather, there is simply. and all to often. no grass at all.
Said property is located on the banks of the Eagle Creek River in the southwestern section of Trumbull County, in the great state of Ohio. Thru the decades, it has been home for, well over 100 years, many old and unwanted horses, horses that are now a part of its fabric – its history. A farm where four generations of carrying humans have looked after and cared for the needy and unwanted, the abused and the forgotten - those creatures that just got lost along the road of life and now call home – their last home on the Earth. It has been a proud farm, a place where horses call the next best place this side of heaven and a place where all their dreams now come true.
Long before the term “Horse Sanctuary” was attached, and yes exploited, the old farm prevailed and has stood the test of time and the ever changing economies of scale. And yet, today begins a new chapter, perhaps the final chapter for the old farm as we search for a new owner, a new spirit and a person and/or family willing to carry on the tradition that began so long ago – someone’s whose passion is rooted deep within the soul of Equus.
For decades this thirteen plus acre farm has been home to numerous rescued horses. Some were champions, but all were lost souls and unwanted spirits. Accommodations include nine (9) luxury stalls with separate 12x24 foot porches/run outs, four grazing pastures, multiple hay fields, while boasting riding/walking trails and lets not overlook a slow moving river for those romantic midnight swims. Also. the total dollar yearly amount for both properties in taxe is $816.00 per year, amazingly affordable. As a passing thought so will leave this section with an excerpt from his seventh novel, "Unrealistic Transitions"....With clarity and passion her stand alone front page piece framed the prior days' events then put it all into the proper context according to those that poudly display with honor their gender...
To All those who carry the XX Amelogenin. To all those women that dream of passion, to all those women that search for honesty, and for all of us who will settle for only fleeting moments of humility and honor during our lifetime, yesterday many of us witnessed greatness, perhaps for the first and very last time. For you see, it was an event that will stay with me for the rest of my life. An event that is now and forever more etched in my mind, deeply anchored in my heart and has now settle onto the mystic of my soul. It was an event witnessed by those of us that now refer to it as simply --- "The Kiss". For those fortunate souls who stood in awe and witnessed the spontaneous actions of a tall, stunningly beautiful, model type woman from California as her actions were instantly transported throughout the massive campus of The University of Notre Dame in a millisecond, it was as if we all entered a dream like state. It was as if every standing female simultaneously picked up on it majesty, its resolve, its message and it intentions as we too felt the final release of honesty displayed by this foreign Goddesses heart and spirt. Oh yes, make now mistake about the selection of words. I do mean Goddess. For this classy young woman, a new student, set this university's most celebrated and highly desirable Olympic Champion Athlete on fire with just her kiss, the one kiss he may never fully recover from and a kiss that he will spend the rest of his life trying to duplicate --trying to regain its passion. And yet, when we finally graduate from this University of tradition and honor, we will take with us many memories and fleeting moments of honestly, but yesterday will remain deeply etched in my mind, my heart and especially in my soul, because of this foreign born coed and her auctions. For that I'm left with only one reply --- she was I said "Simply Unbeliveable".
