My board went up in Feb. From 415 to 440. That's without tax and only includes the stall, grain, hay and turnout. Everything else is extra.
It's just part of horse ownership.
Just like the gas prices going up... it's part of owning a car.

But I would look into other barns where you feel that spending $300/month is justified by the services. The place across the street seems like a good choice.

That's unfortunate. You would never seen the barn taking care of your fl spray, I find that little odd. Not something they care for here.

Have you done research as to what might be available around where you are? From what you are describing I agree that the $300.00 does not sound worth the board.

I'll never sell Vega, I don't care if I have to sleep in the stall with her to be able to pay for her.

Like I said before, it just comes with the ownership of horses. You don't see everyone with big SUV's selling them because of the gas price. And I doubt you'll see everyone with horses selling them because of the price increase.

Even all the food prices are going up for humans. We have to deal with the prices because we (obviously) need food to survive.

I agree- I'll do whatever I can to keep my horse. ;)
But yeah, inflation does suck. With gas prices high too, ahh, it's not very fun. But yeah, if you work hard, you CAN defeat it!
