Holy cow - I forgot one of the most important pictures .... the pasture!
This picture was taken from the far end of the pasture looking towards the barn (on the right).  The house can just barely be seen behind the big clump of pines on the left.  Pasture will be good for all four horses.  Enough slope and a few trees to make it interesting, flat enough to safely run (on the initial walk about we did not find any critter holes - which is good) and flat enough for Hank. 
It will be interesting to see what kind of grass comes up in the spring.  Estimated total pasture space to be about four acres which is totally manageable from an agricultural perspective - controlling erosion, grazing, weed control and growing/maintaining good quality grass.  We won't get the pasture perfect in the first year or so; however, with 4 acres, we can get a good start.
