with a barn to have horses. They’re also 70 and it is now an hour away from all of their family.

how soon until they regret this?

I know a couple in their 60's who have 92 acres and have goats/chickens and dogs and they do fine. They'll be fine, go see them every few weekends if you're so worried.

An hour isn't bad. But farm/ranch life is hard on the body. Are they fairly able bodied or are the years taking their toll already?

The primary question shouldn't be how far away from family they are, but how far away from the nearest hospital. :hmm:
