most will give me post dated checks for the entire year
I thought about that so I wouldnt be late. But, I was studying with an attorney/CPA for my CPA a few months ago. He told me it dosent matter when the checks are dated, a bank can cash them upon receiving them.
I would love to board were I got a discount for multiple horses. I think $50 is pretty reasonable. I pay 150 per horse at the moment, I think that's probably what it costs the BM to feed them and pay for rent, so Im not expecting any discount right now.
Although each horse costs the same, you are retaining a larger amount of $, if you can keep two boarders with two horses each, as apposed to two boarders with one horse each. I always try to keep my two horses together if I can.
