Okay so today I go to the barn and theres a note on my tack box. So I open it up and it reads " To all Ginger caretakers. Due to rising costs of grain (over $5.00 a bag) and hay (will now cost $3300 annually) and bedding and fencing and diesal things will change as follows!
As of 6/1/08 new boarding price $275 a month.
As of 9/1/08 new board will be $300 a month.
You will still be liably for Fly Spray (or buy your own) Add $15 a month for fly spray if your not going to buy your own. Plus the price of vet, farrier, and worming."
I understand the price of everything is raising so board must go up but this place I board at isnt even worth $300 a month. There just building a small arena for us to work the horses. Other then that the only places we could ride were on the dirt road and in the pasture. Also the horses are on pasture board. Next door there is a farm that boards and there pasture board is $300 a month too but it includes- lighted indoor arena, 60' outdoor round pen, and and outdoor arena. There are also 20 stalls, 14 paddocks, and a tack shed. The only downside about this place is there are atleast 40 horses there and there paddocks are mostly on hills and are jsut dirt with no grass for the horses to eat. Im really stuck because I have know idea what to do! Im still debating on weather to sell Ginger and get a more calmer horse and then move or just sell Gigner all together. I don't know. Id really love to have a hrose still but I don't know! Ughh.
Also I forgot to add~ as of right now I pay $250 for board.
