Hosts are happy to take questions before, during, or after your stay. Narrative about Selby Farm: Selbys have lived on this 75 acre farm since 1990. Doug and Brenda are retired from teaching at nearby public schools. Our Farm is now dedicated to boarding retired horses for their owners. Feel free to review the Selby Farm Horse Retirement webpage if you are a horse fan. We encourage you to visit our business website where you will see more farm pictures, videos, and where you will learn more about us. We practice rotational grazing for the health of the horses and the health of our pastures. The horses live in a herd as they would in the wild. Basically, they are hanging out with their friends! They also get regular care and feed and so are VERY happy. You will see and probably interact with the horses if you wish. They are guaranteed to come closer if you have treats like carrots and apples slices. Our quiet county road used to be the main road along the river. A hundred years ago it was called "Shanty Road". The shacks that were along it housed workers that harvested food from farms in the river bottom. The only evidence of those shacks now is perrenial flowers growing in unusual places. The area is inhabited by professionals working in nearby towns and cities. In fact there are only five homes along our 1.5 mile section of Copps Chapel Road. The native Americans who used this area did so because of the great diversity of wildlife and availability of water. Also the view is amazing in all directions. Was using this ridge top encampment for security, or just because the view is so satisfying? The Missouri River is on the far side of the bottoms now, but has been very close historically. There is also a large spring flowing from a cave nearby. Witness the flint chips when you walk through our barn lot. You are likely to see a broken stone tool that was once worked on by a native American. These river hills are composed of soils blown in from the end of the last ice age. Being near the river, erosion has cut down the surrounding area making the scenic topography associated with Missouri River valleys and river hills.

My stay was short, but sweet. I arrived after dark and was able to find the property easily with Doug & Brenda鈥檚 directions. Waking up to the sunrise & the horses was beautiful!

Breathtaking farm country. Doug waited for us out on the road to ensure we got in okay. Delightful spot and I imagine it must be lovely in the spring/summer. The horses were the cherry on top as they were so curious. Another thums up!

Nice level spots with views of the horses and lots of room for dogs to stretch their legs. We were the only ones there and it was very private. We enjoyed visiting Warm Springs Ranch to see the Clydesdales during our stay (about a 15-minute drive). Good communication from the host. We had a good visit and would stay again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay on the farm. The love for the horses can be felt as you drive up, the energy of a 180 year old or so tree to camp under can鈥檛 be matched. They accommodated my visit with fire wood, and an early departure. Their farm hand Johnny was a blessing and got me in and out with great conversation to boot. I hope to come back some day and bring my family all the way from NC just to sit atop that oak and soak it all in.
