Hoof Prints--Welcome to Amarillo Texas


There have been millions of horse prints through Amarillo from its early history in the old west.  Even today it is not uncommon to see horses in pastures or riders along the side of the highway.  


Amarillo is a city named in many country western songs, "Amarillo By Morning" and "Amarillo Sky" to name two.  Many of Louis L'Amour books traveled through Amarillo.  We are a unique city.


If you have spent much time in Amarillo you have probably seen beautifully painted horses here and there around the city.




Each horse is an exact replica of a Quarter Horse.  They are made of fiberglass and weigh approximately 125 pounds each--which is considerable less than a real quarter horse that weighs in at about 1000 pounds.


Once a horse is complete it belongs to the person or business owner that purchased it.  The cost is $3500.  The average time spent from start to finish is about 6 months.


Center City matches a buyer to a local artist who creates a design for the horse. Once completed it is placed on a concrete slab and becomes a part of Amarillo's beautification project.

Located at: Maxor Park, Third and Polk

Hoof Prints was started in 2002 by the American Quarter Horse Association. The purpose was to raise funds for the Center City of Amarillo project and promote art in public places.

Riding through town you notice a few horses here and there but there are actually more than 100 horses dispersed throughout Amarillo.

Want to Live In The Country on 3.5 Acres?  Today is your Lucky Day At Only $85,000


The property, 5611 Bailey Lane,  is a mobile home and is located in an area where there are other mobile homes.  Most other properties have no more than 1 acre.  This home has 3.5 acres and is fenced in sections.  It is priced very fairly at $85,000.  It is nestled in and our trees by the front porch.

5611 Bailey Lne

The inside has been updated with hand textured walls, remodeled bathroom, and all laminate wood floors.  The room colors are tastefully pained.  This house is move-in -ready.

It is listed as having 1568 sq ft but it has a bigger feel when inside due to the open floor plan.  It also has a split floor plan with a secluding master donning a soaking tub.  The master bedroom is a great size and it has lots of closet space.

In this area at this price with 3.5 acres
I expect it will sell within a couple of weeks, or less.



There are very few mobiles in this area that a are mid priced and lots of buyers looking for acreage.

5611 Bailey Nice Open Floor Plan
The property is outside of the city limits of Amarillo which means that you can have animals.  Not all animals are allowed.  Be sure to check with the Randall County zoning board for confirmation.

There is a carport that holds two cars.  For storage, the owners have an old railroad car, which is more common than you may think.  It is secure and holds a lot of items.  You can dress it up with your choice of new paint.

Currently there are four similar properties in this area.  None of them have 3.5 acres and they are all priced higher than $85,000 for the 5611 Bailey Lane house.  In the last 12 months only 4 properties have been sold.  There are rarely properties that come on the market for sale.

This property was built in 1998 and has been maintained to current standards.  The Potter/Randall Appraiser District has it listed as effective year build as 2006.  When asked about the value of only $30,000 the owner conveyed that  it was much higher than that but for some unknown reason they dropped the value.  The owner also indicated that she didn't fight it because it would jut make her taxes go up. They are currently at $342 a year.
