Horse Joys! Aren’t horses awesome!


My kids and grandkids all appreciate the grace and beauty of horses and some are just plain enthralled with all things horses. Few of us have been able to purchase horse property, but we’d all love too. Maybe someday!

There are so many great ways we can enjoy time with these beautiful creatures. Riding them, caring for them, watching them perform at a variety of types of horse shows, rodeos, parades, etc. We’ve even had some lovely ones visit us at my church! Not only that. When I wrote the earlier post on assistive pets and animals, I enjoyed sharing some of the many ways horses can help a wide variety of ages and and health issues. Sweet joys, indeed!

Lately some of my friends have been talking about horses. Did you know that Roseville actually has horse property. Not a lot but here and there in a variety of spots including some in my beloved West Roseville. I’m always thrilled when I drive by one of the homes with  horses. Just like with the egrets, turkeys, geese, ducks, adorable dogs, and other cute critters, they give me such a big smile to see them!

My grandkids would LOVE one of the Woodbridge Ranch homes that allows horses-this community straddles Roseville and Orangevale-Placer and Sacramento County CA via Kaye Swain REALTOR

All of this has made me curious to see if there are any horse properties available right now so I did a search to see. You can take a look at them by clicking here! Also, be sure to check out the zoning laws  for the City of Roseville CA. You can find the main page for that by clicking here – then going to 7.28.020, 7.28.040 – (Sections B, C and D), and 7.28.050. In fact, I would call the City of Roseville CA zoning department to get more specific information. The number for the City Clerk is (916) 774-5263.

Of course, the number of horse properties with houses for sale can change day by day as houses sell or are listed on the internet. At the moment, there are only 2 showing with this particular search. But over the past year, 9+ horse property homes for sale were sold in Roseville CA, ranging in price from $310,000 to $800,000.

This search will turn up most Roseville homes for sale for equestrian needs. But if you don’t want to take a chance of missing that special home you are looking for, call me at 916-768-0127 or email me at I’d be glad to set you up for an MLS home search with your own personal portal. Very easy to use and useful!

Pumpkins, Gourds , and Squash, Oh MY!

The weekly Roseville Farmers Market in Downtown Square by the City Hall, along with all the other Farmer’s Markets in the area are often great places to get beautiful pumpkins and cute squash.

Our local grocery stores usually have a great selection of pumpkins and decorative squash and gourds. If you watch for them, you might catch some great sales.

While running by Kaiser Medical Center on Douglas and Eureka in Roseville on Thursday, I remembered the Farmers’ Market that is held there every Thursday from 10-3, and it’s year-round!

Farmers Market Tomatoes Kaye Swain Roseville Real Estate Agent

I popped over to visit it and left with delicious treasures! Delightful sunflowers for my senior mom! A huge zucchini that reminds me of the ginormous ones my grandfather loved to grow. Farm fresh tomatoes that are almost as good as my senior mom’s. And gorgeously sweet and tasty strawberries!

Kaye Swain Roseville Real Estate Agent loves fresh farm strawberries

Those strawberries were the best treat of all for me! The ones I’ve been buying at the grocery stores (all brands) have not been all that sweet lately. I don’t use sugar so I was getting rather depressed with them. I asked the gentleman selling me the strawberries and he told me they’d just been picked that morning! And oh my, I’m back to thoroughly enjoying strawberries even though it’s mid-September! Awesome! He also told me that they expect to have them for at least another month! Don’t we LOVE California weather!


I shall definitely be visiting the Farmer’s Markets in our area much more often. In addition to Kaiser Medical Center’s Thursday Market, there is Whole Foods Tuesday market, which I believe is 8:30-1, year-round. Kaiser Riverside hosts one from 10-2 on Wednesdays year-round. Denio’s in Roseville has a big one on Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week all through the year. And have you heard about the brand new Farmer’s Market in Downtown Roseville? It’s in the Town Square by the City Hall on Vernon from 8 am – 1 pm on Saturdays, also year -round!

Fresh vegetables

We can enjoy locally-grown fresh fruit and veggies from Farmers’ Markets 6 days a week (none on Mondays) just in Roseville alone, year round! How handy is that! A great resource for all of us eating healthy – as well as everyone who just plain likes yummy fruits and veggies, not to mention lovely fresh flowers!  A sweet joy, indeed!

P.S. Want more options? Here are resources for Placer County and the Sacramento area! 🙂
