Welcome to Equus Villa

Welcome to Equus Villa. Equus Villa is Latin for Horse Home. Hi. My name is Julie Size and My husband, Don of 16 years and I own a quaint little 26 acre horse farm in Plantersville, TX. We currently own only American Saddlebred horses - 7 of them. We also have 5 Pembroke Welsh Corgi Dogs and a hand full of barn cats. Yes - we are animal lovers! Our farm is a work in progress as we purchased the virgin land 7 years ago and continue to develope it in a way that preserves the natural beauty of it as well.

Late in 2000, we started by mapping out our dreams. We put in a water well, had electricity brought onto the property and started to fence. As we were fencing the contractor started to build our 'barndominum' as some have called it. I hate that term though and just prefer to call it my home.

Yes, as you can see, we currenty live above our barn. It is much more elegant than it sounds as I chose to decorate it in a French Country Estate motif. The color scheme is black, cream and taupe with rich dark red accents and the farm colors are black and white. Please come in and stay for a while!
