    For me it works out much better. I've boarded before but I love being able to look out my bedroom window and see the ponies bombing around the field (Mine and my landlords). <3 I can see him anytime I want to, and end up paying SOOOOO much less. I get my hay for free which is nice, and even after the farrier and grain and other costs it still puts a couple hundred extra dollars into my pocket rather than having it for boarding fees. I can keep a closer eye on him this way and if I need to change something (like food) or treat something should an injury come up it's easy to do. I also LOVE not having to drive out to put a blanket on him. He's right here and so is his blanket. I love not spending gas to put the two together. I find the works really not hard to do at all. I keep my ponies out 24/7 with option for shelter, although I will be keeping them in at night once winter hits cause Shnook doesn't handle the cold in the least. But over all so long as the water stays topped, I throw down some hay for them every other day (I throw down a fair bit, and they have SOOO much stuff in their field to eat, it lasts. I just check in on it when I grain them) and give them their grain after my own breakfast and supper. It's hardly any work at all. But that could just be because I love them. XD x3
    Although I did have a good talk with one of my friends who dog sits. My "Not an easy keeper" pony is actually less work than his dogs. Made me giggle. XD
    But daily grooming is something I love to do and can do now. I know it's not needed everyday, but dam these ponies love to roll and even in a field with next to no burrs they somehow find a way to become a unicorn by morning, so it makes it easier to manage. XD
