I have done both and I find that pasture board is not only better on the pocket book but it far more natural for them. It allows them to be in a herd and have a more natural "horse life".

i pasture board my horse and always will. He loves not being contained into a stall and its good to always give your horse a little freedom seeing they serve us so well. I think most horses are happier in a herd enviroment. And most people like the easy budget

My horse is pasture-boarded as well. I think it is a lot healthier for them. Alot of horses develop respiratory problems from being in all day.

Kickshaw - I actually kind of disagree with injured horses not being in the pasture. When Jubilee had a leg injury we kept her outside, but in her own paddock, without any other horses. Esp. with a leg injury, it can get really cramped up and even more swollen if they are in a stall all day. I'd prefer to let them move around at their own pace. The wound can be wrapped if necessary.
