Those amounts are not too far off, Josie. Due to a good pasture, grain only costs me ~$14.00 during the summer, feeding one horse and one pony. During the winter, I suppliment with hay and that costs me ~$50 for a round bail. I keep the hay in the barn and take off what I need for the day - I don't give them free access to the round bails.
